More information about Viagra

What is Viagra?

Viagra, also known as the "little blue pill," is a very popular treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED). Developed by Pfizer in 1989, it was the first FDA-approved oral prescription medication for erectile dysfunction.

Viagra has transformed the lives of millions of men by helping them achieve erections strong enough for penetrative sex.

Viagra is a brand name - generic Viagra is known as sildenafil. Sildenafil contains the same ingredients and has identical effects - the only difference is the name and price.

As with most ED treatments, Viagra belongs to a class of medication known as PDE-5 inhibitors. Other treatments in the same class of drugs include Cialis, Levitra, and Stendra - each with their own unique characteristics.

For any of these treatments to work, you must first become sexually aroused.

How does it work?

Put simply, Viagra works by increasing blood flow to the penis.

An erection occurs when sexual arousal stimulates the brain. Your brain then initiates the body's production of something called cGMP. This chemical relaxes the muscles in the penile wall, allowing the arteries in the penis to fill with blood. The end result is an erection.

When you have climaxed, your body will then produce an enzyme called PDE-5. This enzyme breaks down the erection.

Viagra works through the active ingredient sildenafil citrate, which inhibits the PDE-5 enzyme for a period of time, helping blood vessels in the penis fill with blood.

A common myth is that Viagra produces an erection immediately, but sexual stimulation is still required. Viagra improves blood flow to the penis so that your body responds to normal sexual stimulation.

What doses are available?

There are three prescribed doses:

  • 25mg - the lowest dose is recommended for those sensitive to higher dosages, as well as those over the age of 65
  • 50mg - this is usually recommended if you are using treatment for the first time
  • 100mg - the strongest dose available and only recommended if the 50mg dosage has little effect. It is also important that you have not experienced any side effects when using the 50mg dose

If you are unsure which strength to take, you should first consult with a doctor.

How do I take Viagra?

You should always follow the directions of your doctor as well as what is detailed in the instructions provided with your medication.

This medication is very easy to take:

Viagra usage you should take one tablet 30-60 mins before intercourse more than one tablet should not be taken within 24 hours* take tablets with a glass of water if a lower dosage does not provide the desired effect, you may have to adjust it store the pack at room temperature away from moisture

The time it takes for this treatment to work varies between men. It will normally take between 30 minutes and one hour.

If this medication does not have any effect, please contact your doctor.

*Taking a dose of more than 100mg will not increase the efficacy - however it will increase the severity of any side effects. If you would like to take an impotence medication that is optimized for more frequent sexual activity, Cialis Daily would be a better option.

Can I take Viagra with food and alcohol?

If you eat a heavy meal (especially a high-fat meal), you may find that this medicine takes a longer time to take effect. However, it is completely fine to take with meals, as long as you are aware that there may be slight delay before effects.

Alcohol can prevent a man from achieving an erection. For this reason, it is not advised to drink heavily when taking this medication.

What are the possible side effects?

All prescription drugs can cause adverse effects, but Viagra is usually very well-tolerated and any reactions are not normally serious.

The following are the most commonly reported (they are usually mild and not long-lasting):

  • alopecia
  • anemia
  • anxiety
  • cough
  • diarrhea
  • dizziness
  • fluid retention
  • headaches
  • increased risk of infection
  • insomnia
  • nasal complaints
  • nausea
  • night sweats
  • pain
  • skin reactions
  • stomach discomfort
  • stomach disorders
  • tremor
  • vasodilation
  • eye problems such as vision loss
  • hearing loss

If any of these side effects become particularly concerning, please stop treatment and contact your doctor.

You should also stop treatment and seek immediate medical attention if you experience more serious side effects, such as an allergic reaction, chest pain, or painful, long-lasting erections (known as priapism).

A full list of reactions and their frequency can be found in the patient information leaflet included with your medication.

What precautions should I take?

Viagra is generally suitable for any adult male with erectile dysfunction. However, it may not be prescribed and may be unsuitable for those who:

  • have or have had heart problems, such as cardiovascular disease or heart disease, including angina, heart attack, or a stroke
  • have kidney or liver disease
  • have low blood pressure
  • have sickle cell anemia, leukemia, or multiple myeloma
  • have galactose intolerance
  • have or have had renal dysfunction
  • have had a stroke in the past 6 months
  • have a rare eye disease, such as retinitis pigmentosa
  • have severe damage/deformity to the penis, such as Peyronie's disease
  • are currently taking a nitrate medication, such as nitroglycerin, isosorbide dinitrate, or isosorbide mononitrate

If any of these apply to you, you should contact your doctor and ask about other ED treatments - there are other options available.

Are there any interactions with other medications?

You should inform all healthcare providers about any medications or supplements you are taking, even if they are not prescribed.

Viagra can interact with some medications. You should not take it with medications containing nitrates, as your blood pressure could become dangerously low. This includes recreational drugs such as “poppers” which contain amyl nitrite and butyl nitrite. A sudden drop in blood pressure could cause you to feel dizzy, faint, or have a heart attack or stroke.

Viagra is also known to interact adversely with:

  • grapefruit - when combined with sildenafil, the fruit can cause low blood pressure
  • alcohol - excessive consumption can increase the chance of side effects occurring
  • blood pressure medications such as alpha-blockers - these could lead to a drop in blood pressure or fainting
  • other erectile dysfunction treatments such as Cialis or Levitra - if you have taken any of these recently, wait at least 24 hours (36 hours for Cialis) before using Viagra
  • if you are also using Priligy for premature ejaculation, you should confirm with a doctor that Viagra is okay for you to take

When completing your consultation, it is important to list any medications you are taking, especially blood pressure medications, as there may be an interaction.
