If you’ve done at least a little bit of online research in erectile dysfunction, it’s likely that you came across Kamagra adds. Maybe without you even knowing it! Some vendors even market it as Viagra without prescription, or generic Viagra. Usually available at a lower price than others, Kamagra might have even caught your attention. But, for many, this also rings a bell – no prescription, low prices, imprecise descriptions and varying names – it does look a bit like a scam does it?
This is why we decided to tackle this issue and provide our readers with the answer to the question – is it safe to buy Kamagra online?

What is Kamagra?
Kamagra is the most common trade name for Indian generic medicine based on the same active ingredient as Viagra, namely sildenafil. This means that, at least in an ideal scenario, it can be considered to be a kind of Indian version of generic Viagra. In most cases this is the case, but due to the fact that production and distribution of Kamagra aren’t as strictly controlled as is the case with other PDE-5 inhibitors manufactured in Europe or the United States, it’s hard to be 100% certain that the product you’re getting contains just sildenafil as its active ingredient, nor that it contains precise, effective and safe amount of it.
Can I buy it online?
Yes, Kamagra became famous for being sold mostly online. Some websites go even as far as to market it as a natural or herbal remedy in order to attract customers and explain why it’s so easy to get, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Unlike other impotence pills, and especially those belonging to the PDE-5 class which can be bought online only through a certified online clinic, Kamagra is often available for order on other, more “low-profile” websites which either deal exclusively in medicaments or do not have any specific category of products. To put it simply, yes, it is possible to buy Kamagra online, and it can be done surprisingly easily. The safety of it is a completely different story.
Can I buy Kamagra without prescription?
Another thing that Kamagra is famous for is that, unlike other PDE-5 inhibitors, it can be obtained without prescription and without any consultations with a medical professional whatsoever. This is due to the fact that this product isn’t as strictly regulated in India, as is the case with sildenafil-based medicines in Europe. Exactly because of this, any website can advertise and sell Kamagra – as opposed to online clinics selling “conventional” impotence pills which need to provide their customers with online consultations with the doctor prior to issuing a prescription and sending the medicine to buyer’s home address.
Is it legal?
Due to large differences in standards, procedures and legal requirements, Kamagra is illegal in European Union and most European states with just a couple of examples where it isn’t exactly legal, but unregulated. If you live within EU and decide to order Kamagra online, it is highly likely that the package will be confiscated at the customs. Depending on the exact laws of your country, you can even receive a fine and go through a rather unpleasant experience. If you decide to purchase Kamagra anyways and think that this remedy is unregulated in your country, be sure to double check and get enough information on the legal aspects.
Kamagra Oral Jelly
Aside from the tablet form that tends to mimic the conventional PDE-5 inhibitors, Kamagra is also available in the form of a gel that is consumed orally. It is available in multiple flavours for a tasty experience. But, at the same time, this form is even more dangerous than the tablet one. Not only is Kamagra Oral Jelly manufactured in bad conditions at questionable factories, but the question of consistency in terms of dosage has also been raised. If you really want to avoid pills and tablets and still handle your ED problems, Levitra Orodispersible is a much safer choice. It’s a pill that dissolves on the tongue, leaving a minty aftertaste. Unlike Kamagra, it is standardized and approved by both FDA and EMA.
Kamagra Gold 100mg
The tablet form of Kamagra is usually advertised as Kamagra Gold 100mg. But even when this is not the case, the pills usually are 100mg each, assuming the consistency in dosing the active ingredient. Even in this best-case scenario, the fact that Kamagra is available only in this dose means that there is much greater chance of side effects as opposed to conventional ED treatments that come in multiple dosages exactly because of this issue. So, even if there are negative consequences, you cannot precisely lower the dose.
What are the side effects?
According to several surveys, around 16% of people using Kamagra report severe headaches afterwards, something that happens to the significantly smaller percentage of patients taking Viagra in a large dose. This is because sildenafil affects circulation and in higher dosages can cause dehydration and increased body temperature.
Flushing of the face, indigestion, diarrhoea, rash and visual disturbances have all been reported in percentage much greater as compared to Viagra (1 in 10 patients), with digestive problems being especially prominent since they seem to be very common for Kamagra, yet rather rare when it comes to Viagra or even generic sildenafil.
As ED treatment based on sildenafil, Kamagra shouldn’t be more dangerous than Viagra – in an ideal scenario. If it was simply an equivalent of generic sildenafil, available in 100mg dose only, it would still not be the safest option (due to fixed high dose), but it would be as dangerous as all the other conventional PDE-5 inhibitors. However, the problems with Kamagra arise from the unknown factors – where and how was it produced, are there any impurities or other active ingredients, were there any quality checks, clinical trials and scientific research? What’s more, many brands of Kamagra don’t even name their manufacturer on the label, so it’s borderline impossible to get answers to these questions.
At the same time, Kamagra does rely on the same active ingredient as Viagra, so we cannot claim that it will definitely cause you trouble. In fact, some people report a positive experience with Kamagra, which isn’t surprising due to extreme effectiveness of sildenafil. We are not questioning that. What we are questioning is the ability of Kamagra manufacturers to consistently deliver standardized products in the same dosages and without impurities. But, the bottom line is – the choice is yours.
