What is Avigra? 1,2,3
Avigra is a medicine used to treat erection difficulties, known as erectile dysfunction (ED). It is made by Pfizer, the same company that makes Viagra®. In fact, both Avigra and Viagra have the same chemical makeup (sildenafil citrate).
Avigra offers the same highly effective results as Viagra with the added benefit of reduced cost. Which is why Avigra gives you more bang for your buck.1,2,3
