Viagra To The Rescue When You Need It The Most

Viagra, also known as the “Blue Pill,” came as a big rescue to males suffering from Erectile Dysfunction and not getting properly treated. Sildenafil is a PDE5 inhibitor which is used in Viagra. Viagra was the 1st drug to be used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction followed by Cialis and Levitra. Viagra is the brand name under which Sildenafil is being sold. Viagra is a prescription only drug which was later made available over the counter as well. Viagra is FDA approved. It was first introduced to the market by Pfizer, who launched the drug with all the might in the market and the heavy marketing gave then more than 90% of the market share for such medicines.

PDE5 is a chemical present in our body responsible for the reduction in one’s ability to have an erection. Sildenafil acts as a PDE5 inhibitor which helps in blocking this chemical and relaxing the arteries and penile muscles. The source for male penis erection is the increased blood flow to the penis when a male is aroused since Sildenafil relaxes the muscles; the blood flow automatically increases in the male penis and helps give a sustainable erection. Viagra has been known to increase sex drive in men and has been widely used by old men who once failed to have erections. The usage was high in patients as well as older men. Osta Viagra is being sold online widely. Many other generic forms of the drugs have come in the market post the patent dates expired.

Viagra is to be taken 30 mins before any sexual stimulation as the drug starts working and giving the desired effects during this timeframe. The effects of Viagra can last up to 4-5 hours. But at times the effects have been known to start diminishing after 2 hours and resulting in less firmness of the male penis or a relatively shorter duration of the erection.

The dosage depends on one’s medical condition, medical history of treatment, responsiveness to the treatment and other drugs that might be being used by the patient. One should always discuss their medical condition with their doctor before they start taking the blue pill to have the desired results and reduced side effects.

What are the side effects?

Like other prescription medicines, Viagra also comes with side effects which are relatively milder. Some of them are a headache, muscle pain, flushing, and dizziness, etc. The FDA regulated the warnings on such medicines so that the patients are aware of the potential risks. Vision changes may happen like increased sensitivity to light, blurring of vision, or difficulty in telling colors may also occur. One should promptly consult their doctors if more than one symptom occurs in severe nature. Any allergies to Sildenafil

should always be discussed with the doctor. One should limit alcoholic beverages while taking this medicine.

Sildenafil is not recommended to be used with nitrates. Poppers containing Amyl or Butyl Nitrate are not to be used with Viagra. The blood pressure of a person drops when Sildenafil is used with nitrates, which may lead to increased dizziness, fainting and in rare cases stroke.
