Products Based on Tadalafil by Ajanta Pharma Limited

Tadalis SX

Tadalis SX has no approval from the pharmaceutical authorities of the UK, EU and US yet and, hereby, is unavailable across land-based drugstores or local online pharmacies in those regions. It can be bought in India as well as online in various international web-based drugstores focusing on generic medications. Tadalis SX comes in two forms:

  • Tadalis SX pills: yellow in color, oval-shaped, film-coated pills with 20mg of tadalafil per pill. This medication comes in 2-pill and 4-pill packages and is to be administered with water minimum 30 minutes prior to anticipated sexual intercourse. The effect from this drug can last up to 36 hours
  • Super Tadalis SX pills: yellow in color, triangular-shaped with rounded angles, film-coated pills. This drug comes in 4 tablets per package, whereas every pill includes 60mg of dapoxetine and 20mg of tadalafil, the former being applied for treatment of premature ejaculation. Super Tadalis SX is to be administered minimum 30 minutes prior to planned sexual activity

The suggested initial tadalafil dosage is 10mg. Hence, in case of Super Tadalis SX or Tadalis SX – the initial dosage requires half of the pill only.

Tadalis SX price is approximately USD 1.00 per pill, whereas Super Tadalis SX is a bit more pricy – minimum USD 1.30 per pill.

Apcalis SX

Ajanta Pharma also produces Apcalis SX –ED drug based on tadalafil. It is available in India, South Africa, Thailand, Georgia and other countries as well. Same as Tadalis SX, this drug has no approval yet for sale in the UK, US, and EU. It has the following 2 types:

  • Apcalis SX pills: oval-shaped, yellow in color, film-coated pills, to be administered around 30 minutes and above prior to sexual activity. One package includes 2 or 4 pills. This medication comes in 20mg of tadalafil per pil
  • Apcalis SX Jelly: sachets filled with gel with fruity flavors, every sachet includes 20mg of tadalafil. There are no other strengths available for this drug. The list of flavors has: strawberry, mint, black currant, orange, mango, pineapple and chocolate. Every package of Apcalis SX Jelly has 7 gel sachets

Same as Tadalis SX, the initial dose of Apcalis SX should be half a pill or gel sachet, so that the dosage fits the recommended limit of 10mg.

Apcalis SX has a higher price comparing to Tadalis SX – the pills are approximately $1.50 per tablet, whereas the jelly is approximately $2.50 per dose.

Ajanta Pharma Tadalafil

Even though Ajanta Pharma is not selling any ED drugs based on tadalafil at the moment in local EU and US-based drugstores, this situation will improve very soon. Ajanta Pharma tadalafil has got a tentative FDA approval from the US already, which entails that they can be sold right after the Eli Lilly’s patent for tadalafil expires. The patent has already expired back in September 2018, hence we will possibly see Ajanta Pharma tadalafil available for sale in several weeks. The design and form of this new generic drug has not been announced yet.

In conclusion to above outline of Ajanta Pharma’s products for ED treatment, it is clear that the company’s variety of drugs based on sildenafil is significantly better than tadalafil-based medicines. Ajanta Pharma is well-known in the market of ED treatment mainly due to Kamagra. However, it will clearly concentrate on marketing of its non-branded tadalafil and sildenafil in the western markets, at least based on the fact that Ajanta Pharma hasn’t applied yet for Tadalis SX, Kamagra or Apcalis SX marketing approval in the western markets. Anyway, the long-term existence of Ajanta in the international market and broad customer base proves that they will stay among the prominent players, while popularity of generic ED drugs is continuously growing.
