    I've been using Pfizer's Viagra for 6 or 7 years and have had excellent results for getting strong stiff erections. But locally the pharmacy cost has gradually increased from $10 to $22 for a 100mg tablet, so I decided to try generic viagra. I ordered from a Canadian pharmacy (cost was about $4 per tablet) and began using it as soon as I received it. The product they sent comes from India. The results were disappointing. The first time I took it, using a 100mg tablet, the response time was an hour (compared to a half hour with genuine Viagra) and my erection was not completely stiff. The next couple times I used the generic, I took 150mg, and again the response time was an hour, but my erection was harder. The product from India doesn't seem to be as potent as Pfizer's product. Yesterday I went back to using the genuine Viagra, took 100mg, and in a half hour I had a big stiff erection again. So the Pfizer product seems to be better quality than the generic, at least for me. Just wanted to share the experience with any of you who may be considering generic viagra.

    Yes. That seems to be a common complaint with many pharmaceuticals that come off patent and are replaced by cheaper generics.

    I also got some generic Viagra, called Manly made by Cooper Pharm, out of India. what I got was fine at first. I took a 100 mg and about an hour later was balls deep in the wife. I noticed the "blue vision" was worse than if it had been the pfizer viagra. after about the 2nd use, I noticed it wasn't working as quick or as well, so I took 150mg. back to rock hard, but the blue vision was terrible. about this time I gave a few to a friend of mine. I told him he might have to take more than one. he said he normally took 50 mg of real viagra. anyway he said, he took one and nothing, so he took another and still nothing, felt terrible, and could barely see. I started using Cialis which I love, but last week for fun I took one of the gen v, and blue vision was the only thing that happened. I have ordered some Forzest,( gen cialis), and will see if it works. I get fewer side effects with Cialis, and it last for days. I can take 20 mg Cialis on Friday evening, and still get a rock hard erection on a Tuesday. the only thing I don't like is if I am in say, a bar, talking, flirting, and I get a little "too" turned on. my cock sometimes bypasses the big chub stage and wants to go to an erection.

    I have found this with cialis as well. The label says it's effective for 36 hous, but I've found that the effects stay with me for about 3 days or so.

    I've used Kamagra from KamagraNow in the UK and if anything it seems stronger than Viagra. First tab I took gave me a four hour erection, and it often only takes half an hour to kick in. Next morning it is still good too, so much for one hour duration... but that is 100mg. Thinking of cutting them in half, seriously. And a quarter of the price of the branded stuff.

    Looks like a case of individual differences - as with most drugs. By the way, 625girth, what's 'blue vision'?

    I am a fan of the V...and use the Manly product from alldaychemist, have given plenty to friends and WE all enjoy the price and effects...i find my mood/diet/over all sex session drives the effect of helper drugs....not everytime is a star proformance with or without help drugs...
