Indian pharmaceutical companies supply about 40 percent of generics and non-prescription drugs to the United States. In general, India is one of the main manufacturers of generic medical remedies in the world.

India generic Viagra producers

Among the most famous Indian drug-makers are the following companies:
I. Laborate Pharmaceuticals India Ltd. This company has been operating in the pharmaceutical market for over 30 years. It produces a wide spectrum of medical remedies including cough syrups, eye and nasal drops, anti-ED medications and others. Generic version of Viagra produced by Laborate Pharmaceuticals is called Jean Siagra 100;

Is India generic Viagra officially available in the USA?

At the moment, branded Viagra is protected by a patent obtained by the medicament inventor – pharmaceutical giant called Pfizer Inc. This patent’s action expires at the end of 2017. Now the FDA has approved only one generic variant of Viagra, which will be produced by Teva company (originating from Israel). Therefore, most likely, Indian generic of blue pills will not be available in the US in 2017.

Quality of Viagra generic versions

Since generics of blue pills are illegal in the United States, India generic Viagra is not subject to state control and its quality remains a big question. It should be noted that even licensed generics of other drugs, which are produced by Indian pharmaceutical companies, are not always characterized by a proper quality. For instance, in 2014, Sun company removed from sale a batch of generic anti-diabetic drugs, as in one of these drugs antiepileptic substance was found. Ranbaxy company took the same decision in relation to the huge batch of drug Lipitor due to the wrong amount of active ingredient.
