Kamagra oral jelly is produced in India as a substitute for Viagra. Viagra (generic name Sildenafil) is a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction or ED in men (which is an issue with having and maintaining an erection) and pulmonary arterial hypertension or PAH (which is an issue in which the arteries of the lungs experience high blood pressure). It works on ED by inhibiting a particular enzyme (PDE-5) that regulates blood flow, thus making the blood availability for an erection more possible. It works on pulmonary arterial hypertension in a similar manner, reducing the hypertension in the lungs by affecting blood availability.
Kamagra oral jelly contains the same active ingredient as Viagra, sildenafil citrate. It is less expensive and is purported to have the same effects. In a study conducted by eMedTV, the most common side effect was headache. Other side effects reported anecdotally included dizzy spells, nasal congestion, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhoea, urinary tract infection and facial flushing.
In Australia, the Australian Pharmacy Council, or APC on behalf of the Pharmacy Board of Australia (PBA) and the Pharmacy Council of New Zealand (PCNZ), are the authority that accredits pharmacy education and training in Australia and New Zealand . Pharmacy medications are managed and overseen by the Australian Department of Health Therapeutic Goods Administration. The TGA professes the mandate of the protection, promotion and maintenance of the Australian people through ensuring high quality in pharmaceutical services and health care. The TGA has proposed the formation of the International Coalition of Medicines Regulatory Authorities (ICMRA). This arm of global pharmaceutical regulatory authority would be directly responsible for regulating “medicinal products for human use (pharmaceuticals, biologics, genetic therapies, radiopharmaceuticals and “grey zone”/”combination products”) under which kamagra oral jelly would fall. The ICMRA would watch over health concerns in the import of such products into Australian markets and make sure they people were protected.
Currently, online stores carry Kamagra oral jelly as a treatment for erectile dysfunction. Very few regulatory bodies exist to oversee the nature and distribution of these sales. This is a primary example of why the Australian Department of Health Therapeutic Goods Administration has suggested such a global coalition. Currently, India (where kamagra oral jelly is produced) and Australia are both members of the International Coalition of Medicines Regulatory Authorities (ICMRA). The regulatory body in Australia is the Australian Department of Health Therapeutic Goods Administration and in India, their counterpart is the India Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO). Together, they must work on the safety and efficacy of their shared interests, including kamagra oral jelly.
Currently, the Australian government, specifically the TGA, are warning their citizens to be very cautious when buying medications online. They warn on their website that medications purchased online but not regulated by the Australian government, like kamagra oral jelly, can contain the wrong amount of active ingredient, be contaminated, not have proper labeling of other (possibly damaging) ingredients or being past their ‘use by’ dates. They offer online and phone counseling on what is safe to import in the way of medication.
