Kamagra is a medication produced by an Indian pharmaceutical manufacturer called Ajanta Pharma. It contains sildenafil, the same ingredient as Viagra. In principle, genuine Kamagra is a safe medication, as Ajanta Pharma is a modern pharmaceutical company which adheres to the local rules and regulations with regards to producing medicines. The problem however, is that Kamagra is not licensed for sale in the UK.
What does that mean?
Since Kamagra can not legally be sold in the UK, you will be buying it from an illegal business. This means, that it is impossible to know whether you are really buying Kamagra and not some counterfeit version. With many counterfeit drugs containing the wrong dosage, no active ingredient or even dangerous substances, you might end up spending money on a medication which doesn’t help you or which could even harm you.
Leaving the actual composition of the pills aside, buying from a seller who offers Kamagra can also leave you exposed to credit card fraud. As many of these businesses are not legal, they may not adhere to any regulations. They may very well use your credit card and personal details for illegal purposes once you have placed your order. It is also possible that you'll never actually receive your order - illegal pharmacies are raided and closed down on a regular basis. If they are sending your medication from abroad, there is also a risk that your order will be confiscated by UK border control services.
Get a prescription!
There is another aspect of buying Kamagra you should consider carefully. The ingredient sildenafil is a prescription only medication, which you should not take without consulting a doctor first. Depending on your symptoms and your general health, it may not be suitable for you.
What can I do?
With online doctors and online pharmacies selling licensed sildenafil and Viagra legally there is no need to take any risks with buying illegal Kamagra.
