The Many Faces of Viagra

Going through a very recent Drug Alert in my mail-box, I noted that the FDA in the US had issued a directive to a drug company to recall all its products designed to help erectile dysfunction aka ED aka sexual impotence.

ED - a major health issue with a major source of profits

This was because they all were purported to contain sulfoaildenafil . This substance was not declared on the label and is structurally similar to sildenafil, the chemical name for that famous blue pill, Viagra. In fact, both drugs carry a similar profile of side-effects – the major concern being it works in a similar fashion to drugs used in treating heart patients, and so can cause an over-reaction of these drugs which can lead to collapsing and even death in those heart patients.

Because the patent rights of Viagra are exclusive to Pfizer, many so-called performance-enhancing products and herbal remedies that profess to produce ‘stiff nights’ are believed to contain the alternative sulfoaildenafil as this product is non-patented and available from thousands of importers.

So its a great big market out there with countless such remedies. The marketing department of the drug company subject to the recall (here) must have worked overtime to come up with such names as:


Stiff Nights, Size Matters,Erex, Mojo, Hard Drive, Eyeful, Straight Up,  Monster Excyte, WOW,  Verect, Prolatis Libidinal, OMG, OMG45.

The last one above (OMG45) ,by the way, is not, as you might imagine, make it last 45 min…its for those aged 45 and over! 🙂

  1. One of the fact is Viagra is most effective in the first 4 hours after you take it, but sometimes the positive effect of Viagra lasts even more than 8 hours. A lot of psychological tests show that men who take Viagra don’t become aggressive.
