Review and Description

Duraga-100 is an erectile dysfunction medication equivalent to Viagra by Pfizer. Like that brand, Duraga-100, as the name suggests, is formulated in tablets of 100 milligrams each. These tablets are prepared in film coating and use Sildenafil citrate, the major component, to effectively address male erectile dysfunction by broadening the penile vascular channels following relaxation of smooth muscles. Sildenafil citrate counteracts the inhibiting chemical activity of cyclic guanosine monophosphate-specific PDE5. Phosphodiesterase 5 reduces cGMP activity and once checked by sildenafil, the opposite becomes true – cGMP activity increases making it possible for smooth muscles in the cavernosum to relax and the vascular channels to broaden. The latter means better supply of blood to the region which increases strength and duration of erections in men.

Torque Pharmaceuticals Private Ltd are the manufacturers of this generic sildenafil. They produce the medication in India where they have two manufacturing plants in Punjab and in Himachal Pradesh. They also have a corporate office in Chandigarh. The company which was created in 1985, has in keeping with the name “Torque”, grown through the years to become a force to be reckoned within local pharmaceutical industry and increasingly the international arena. Since they opened the tablet manufacturing plant in 1987, they have spared no effort in their mission to provide affordable medicines of the highest quality through constant innovation. In 2005, they got a nod from the WHO when they received WHO-GMP certification. Beyond liquid medicines and tablets, they have more recently carved a niche for themselves in personal care.

Customer Reviews

No reviews exist online for Duraga-100 as of writing. We can say that because we searched as thoroughly as we could for any reviews online. Customer reviews, when available, are usually good indicators of the effectiveness of branded or generic medications. Products having honest, independent reviews usually move customers shopping for such products to go ahead and purchase. For Duraga, all we can say about these 100 milligrams tablets in film coating is that the manufacturers are on the right track professionally and they have spent a relatively long time in the industry. They have yet to reach a lot of milestones as far as international authorizations and the scale of their operations is concerned. You would be right to feel safer buying from a more established pharmacy.

Pricing and Dosage

Duraga is one of the available formulations in the market of this brand with its film-coated tablets being 100 milligrams in sildenafil composition. There are 50mg tablets as well. We got a view of the prices for various amounts of Duraga.

The screenshot above gives the price for a strip of 4 pills each of 100 milligrams as 1

The screenshot above gives the price for a strip of 4 pills each of 100 milligrams as 1.90 US dollars and the price of a strip 1 pill each of 50 milligrams as 1.14 US dollars. These prices are cheaper than those of other generic sildenafil and certainly Viagra, a pill of which is sold at $24.80. Taking one pill daily is recommended.

How to Buy Duraga Online

Duraga-100 tablets and the 50 milligrams formulation can be found online but mostly in the locality of online Indian pharmaceutical stores and a few others internationally. We usually attach links to trustworthy online pharmacies here and had we found Duraga on those stores we would have. Still, there are stores online where you can buy it for prices similar to those in the store whose price list for the drug we highlighted above. We don’t have any shipping information to give since we only came across cash on delivery sites.

How to Use

Duraga-100 sildenafil tablets and the 50 milligrams tablets should be taken with the help of a cup of plain water. Abstain from alcoholic drinks and fat-containing foods prior to using the required dose to guarantee utmost effectiveness and refrain from grinding or breaking the film-coated tablets. The recommended dose should be taken ideally thirty minutes before sexual arousal. A single dose of at least 50mg should be used per day. Do not let children come near the drug. Store in a cool, dry place.

Side Effects

The adverse effects with a significant severity which occur either due to disregard for dosage or allergic reaction include shortness of breath, odema of the lips, face, hands or feet. These symptoms must be reported to a physician on time.  Tachycardia, nausea, blocked nasal cavity, abnormal vision, rash, back pain, dyspepsia, asthenia, dizziness, and headaches are among the most common side effects albeit less serious.

Conclusion with Rating

Duraga-100 is a 100 milligrams erectile dysfunction medication. This film-coated tablet formulation along with the 50 milligrams tablet form is used as a generic equivalent of brand Viagra to reduce the enormity of the condition in males who are coping with unenjoyable sex lives. We couldn’t get any customer reviews to share with you despite our best effort to find them. This is obviously related to the apparent smallness of the scale of operations of the manufacturer in the physical world as well as the online market. While you can find the product online, its availability is limited to local pharmacies and a small collection of other websites. We were, however able to give you the prices for both the 100 milligrams and 50 milligrams film-coated tablets. The manufacturer of this medicine is Indian-based Torque Pharmaceuticals Private Limited. In the thirty-two years, they have spent in the business they started with just liquid medicines, they have grown to include tablet medications as well as personal care products as their website reveals. They have some certifications including one by WHO but you can tell the lack of more is directly affecting the scale of operations. We feel that we can only give Duraga 1 out of 5 stars. See a doctor before use.
