Liquid ED Drugs (Gels, Suspensions)
Tired of taking pills all the time like some old man? Put on a smile then because you are no longer limited in terms of the formulation of the ED med you're taking. Unlike in the past when you only had one choice and that was to swallow pills to make it stiffer, several new forms of such men's meds as tadalafil, vardenafil, and sildenafil are now available. Manufacturers, driven by the spirit of creativity (probably) and the urge to outstrip rivals (most likely) have come up with liquid formulations of ED meds. While the branded Viagra still maintains its iconic outlook in the little blue pills, the makers of generics have decided to go exploring and here is a look at what they came up with.
Kamagra Gels (Oral Jellies) vs Suspensions
The liquid ED drugs like Kamagra gel may come in the forms of oral gels and suspensions. A jelly, in this context, is simply described as a gelatinous substance that is meant for oral consumption. It is commonly made of chemical substances (in this case sildenafil, vardenafil or tadalafil, and excipients) which are bonded using a substance referred to as a 'gelling agent'. A gel, also termed oral jelly, has a semisolid form, unlike the other liquid formulations which are more liquid.
Though the word 'gel' has long been used to refer to topical preparations, in the case of ED meds, gels are meant for oral administration, which may cause confusion in some patients, especially those who don't like reading the package inserts with the directions for use. Oral jellies are frequently flavored and contained in single-dose packs.
Suspensions, on the other hand, are water-based solutions containing the ED medication. Alternatively, they can be sold as DIY kits containing the powder which the user dissolves in water before consumption.
There are currently a number of manufacturers producing ED meds in the form of gels. Kamagra Oral Jelly is arguably the most popular ED oral jelly on the market. Made by Ajanta Pharma, Kamagra jelly has won the hearts of many consumers from all corners of the world.
Hard On oral jelly, Generic Cialis oral jelly, and Malegra oral jelly are other relatively popular examples of gels currently available on the market.
Super P Force jelly, although also a gel formulation, is slightly different from its competitors as it contains both sildenafil and dapoxetine. Thus, it can treat both premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction at once.
Advantages of Gels
The gels are preferred because they are easy to take. Gels can be used conveniently by the elderly and those who have difficulty swallowing the pills.
Gels also come in different flavors, giving the consumers the option to choose their favorite. Manufacturers find it easier to add the flavoring to oral jellies compared to other formulations because the gel's viscosity favors taste masking. So, if you don't like the bitter or tasteless pills, good news - your liquid ED drugs now come in such cool flavors as strawberry, vanilla, butterscotch, mint, pineapple and many more.
The gels are usually contained in packs intended for single use. This makes it easier for the users to take the correct dose of the medication because it's often difficult to measure the liquid formulations accurately at home. The single-use packages considerably lower the risks of overdose and adverse effects.
The gels are also known for their fast effect. The absorption of oral jellies is initiated immediately after intake because they can easily be taken up by cells of the gastrointestinal tract. The tablets, on the other hand, need to be broken into fine particles inside your stomach first and the film coating most pills usually slows this process down a bit.
What's more, the gel formulations are soft on the gastrointestinal tract. Consequently, side effects such as dyspepsia and diarrhea are not experienced too often with these meds.
Since they are generic versions of ED medication, gels are much cheaper compared to the branded meds.
Disadvantages of Oral Jellies
Currently, oral jellies are not many on the market. Only a few manufacturers are producing this formulation, so you might not be able to get it if you are located in certain regions where the import of ED meds is forbidden by law.
There is also the risk of buying counterfeits because some scammers realizing the high demand for oral jellies have started faking ED meds in gel form.
Suspensions are the other form of liquid ED drugs that are currently available. Basically, they are pure sildenafil, tadalafil or vardenafil dissolved in water or other liquid agents with a carefully calculated strength (usually it's X mg/ml, so always use the metric system when picking your dose).
Advantages of Suspensions
Suspensions are popular mostly because of their fast onset of action. Whereas other formulations can take as long as 45 minutes to an hour before their actions are felt, the suspensions exert their effects much earlier because they are readily taken up by the body cells. This is the perfect option if you want to get to the top faster.
The suspensions are also super cheap. For as little as $0.7 or even less, you can get yourself a single-use dose.
The suspensions are very easy to consume. Just like all the other drinkable formulations, suspensions can be used by people who have dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing), and they are also a good choice for the elderly.
Moreover, suspensions offer an alternative to those who experience gastrointestinal side effects when taking pills.
Disadvantages of Suspensions
The major setback related to the use of oral suspensions is the challenge of measuring the correct dosage. Because there are no single-use packages, the users have to measure the amounts themselves, and this is associated with the risk of overdose and side effects.
Some people can also reconstitute the meds wrongly leading to increased risks of toxicity.
There are only a handful of manufacturers currently producing ED meds in the form of oral suspensions, and this leaves a gap in the market because some consumers cannot access the drugs.
The liquid ED drugs ( Kamagra gel ) have generally enjoyed excellent market acceptance. This can be attributed to the fact that the liquid formulations bring a change that people have been yearning for and of course, their proven effectiveness. Although there are currently just a few brands of liquid ED meds on the market, the numbers are likely to grow over time. As you buy the oral gels and suspensions, remember to use the meds safely. Don't take more than the recommended dose and always check the contraindications and drug interactions. If you have any doubts, give your general practitioner a call before you start taking the meds.
Since most of the liquid formulations are sold in online stores, ensure that you are buying from a trusted source to avoid counterfeits.
