How does Viagra work on our body?

To understand how Viagra works, it is necessary to know about its mechanism of action in the body and its site of action. Basically, Viagra works to improve the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. But what is erectile dysfunction? It is a sexual health-related problem. It has many forms. It may be an erection problem or inability to maintain an erection.
Sexual health is very much dependent on a penile erection. The pressure created by blood makes the penis engorged giving it strength and increase in length. A man can get an erection either when he is awake or during sleep.
Normally, the nervous system, arteries and blood vessels work properly and therefore they achieve an erection when getting a sexual stimulus. A sexual stimulus must be there for an erection. But, even after getting a proper stimulus from their partner sometimes they are not able to get an erection at all. This is the time when they need Viagra as a helper in getting an erection.
Viagra increases the blood flow in the genital area of the male, thus filling the blood vessels of the penile area with blood. This keeps the penis engorged during the activity after getting a stimulus. As it is stored above a stimulus from your partner is a must for the drug to start its work otherwise its just of no use to take Viagra. It is completely unfair to assume a radical change in your genitals right after swallowing the blue pill.
Viagra belongs to PDE5 enzyme inhibiting class of drugs. The basic function of this drug is to block the phosphodiesterase chemical released into the blood. This chemical is involved in the chemistry of erection phenomenon. Just after receiving the stimulus, nitric oxide is released into the corpus cavernosum in the penis. The release of nitric oxide plays a role in the release of cyclic guanosine monophosphate responsible for the erection of the penis.
Viagra inhibits the release of phosphodiesterase type 5 which is responsible for terminating erection and turns the penis flaccid. By this action of Viagra, the muscles of the penile area keep relaxed for a long duration thus allowing an increased blood flow into the vessels of the penis and keeping it erect for a long duration.

Product Description

How does Viagra and Sildenafil work?

Viagra (Sildenafil) helps men to get and maintain an erection when sexually stimulated and/or excited. The medicine relaxes the blood vessels in the penis which results in more blood flowing to the penis when you are sexually excited.

How do I take it?

You should take Viagra (Sildenafil) approximately 1 hour before planning to have intercourse. Within a window of between 30 minutes and 4 hours after you take the medicine, it will be easier to keep and maintain an erection when you are sexually excited. If you take this medicine after a meal with a high fat content it may take a little longer to start working. This medicine will only work when you are sexually excited. You won’t get an erection just by taking Viagra (Sildenafil).

Dosage

The standard recommended dose for Viagra (Sildenafil) is 50mg and this will be suitable for most people.  If this dose is not effective, you can try 100mg and if 50mg gives you side effects you can also reduce the dose to 25mg tablets.

You must not take more than 100mg daily of Sildenafil/ Viagra. Clinical trials have been conducted in patients taking up to 200mg sildenafil and it was found that ‘doses of 200mg did not result in increased efficacy but did increase the incidence of adverse reactions (headache, flushing, dizziness, dyspepsia, nasal congestion, and altered vision).’

In addition, in patients taking more than 100mg daily, there have been reports of rhabdomyolysis (a breakdown in skeletal muscle tissue the byproducts of which can lead to kidney failure), visual perception changes, vertebral artery dissection (a tear in the artery supplying blood to the brain), heart attacks and aggressive behaviour.

If the 100mg strength doesn’t work for you, there may be alternatives you can try and we recommend that you call us for a free consultation with our pharmacist or doctor to discuss any underlying conditions you may have. We recommend that all men taking medicine for erectile dysfunction have regular tests for blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and hormone imbalances. For instance, it may be that by fixing a hormone imbalance such as testosterone, your Viagra medication will be even more effective.

In addition, drug manufacturers do not advise patients to split tablets in half to get the correct dosage as they cannot guarantee that the active ingredient will be distributed evenly throughout the tablet.  For instance, if you cut a 100mg tablet in two, you may find that you get 80mg in one half of the tablet and 20mg in the other half leading to either an overdose (increased risk of side effects) or a suboptimal dose (the medication may not work).

It is important that you choose the correct dose for you. If you wish to talk to our pharmacist or doctor about this, please contact us in the pharmacy on 01625 460621 or email [email protected]

Side Effects

Viagra (Sildenafil) is normally well tolerated, however, side effects can include:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea

Side effects normally subside after a few hours, however, if you experience a prolonged or painful erection (longer than 4 hours), then you must contact your doctor immediately.

Drug interactions

There are a number of medicines which interact with Sildenafil/ Viagra. For an exhaustive list please see the patient information leaflet (see section below) or call us in the pharmacy to discuss your specific situation. The main drug interactions are listed here:

Recreational drugs such as ‘poppers’ or amyl nitrate
Alpha blockers used for urinary retention or blood pressure problems (eg Flomax or Cardura)
Anti- arrhythmic drugs such as disopyramide

Please do not take Sildenafil/Viagra if you have taken any of the above drugs within the last 60 days without first consulting with either us in the Pharmacy ([email protected] / 01625 460621) or via email with our doctor [email protected]

**We advise not to take Sildenafil/Viagra with grapefruit juice as the blood concentration of Sildenafil will possibly be increased resulting in side effects.

Myths about Viagra:

As for now, Viagra is an iconic medicine, it is quite normal that Viagra is acquiring myths. People used to add additional properties in its effects while describing its efficacy proving it to be a wonder drug. But it is better for anyone to get proper information and try to differentiate between its actual effects and myths before using it on regular basis. It is better for your health to follow the proper guidelines provided by professionals instead of falling for myths.

Myth 1:

A common thinking is found among the people that Viagra is an aphrodisiac. It should be loud and clear that Viagra is not a super medication or a magic pill. It is an ordinary medicine like many others. A person should have complete information about its contraindications. It is not going to help a person having problems with libido. Its function is limited to increase the blood circulation, so it has nothing to do with the libido.

Myth 2:

There is a lot of confusion found on Viagra intake among men. It is a very common myth about Viagra that it will lead to a magical erection just after its intake.
Men should be very clear about this that Viagra has nothing to do with the sexual stimulus. In fact, the sexual stimulus is mandatory for the erection of the penis. The sexual stimulus has to come from your partner and it should be natural enough to make you ready for sexual intercourse mentally. Only then Viagra can help you to get a better erection. The partner can give the stimulus to sex talk, foreplay, etc.
Viagra dilates the blood vessels and a helpmate to remove the erection related problems.

Genes

Myth 3:

Viagra is famous as a wonder pill. There is a myth that Viagra can solve every problem related to erection. By taking Viagra one can fight every underlying cause of erectile dysfunction. But the fact is that Viagra is not a treatment. The action of Viagra has no effect on causes of erectile dysfunction. There are many underlying causes of erectile dysfunction like heart problems, physical injury or physiological causes. It is important to find the actual cause and take treatment under the supervision of the doctor.

Myth 4:

Another myth about Viagra is that it causes blue vision. This myth about this blue pill is true to some extent. The reason behind this problem is that Viagra is a PDE5 enzyme inhibitor. Therefore, it also blocks the PDE6 which is used by the retina. This can affect a person’s ability to percept between yellow and blue colour. But usually, this condition does not last for a longer duration. It’s mostly due to overdose.

Myth 5:

The effect of Viagra is prolonged by higher dosage. It is also a myth. The dosage is to be decided by the physician, and it should not be changed by you. The duration of action of Viagra is almost 4 hours. Among the four different pills of different frequency, one should choose according to one’s body need. The duration of action of Viagra is not influenced by the strength of the pill.

Myth 6:

Another myth about Viagra is an addiction. Some men are frightened to take the pill because of the fear of addiction. A fear keeps on wandering in their minds that they will get addicted and have to be depended on Viagra in the future.

In order to abolish this thinking, it is important to understand the mechanism of action of Viagra. It just causes the vasodilation. After taking the pill it works via the relation of the blood vessels and thus increasing the blood flow to the penis muscles. Due to the effect of Viagra, these vessels remain relaxed for a certain period of time. During this time period of a few hours, a man does not have difficulty with an erection, this is easily achieved and is sustained during intercourse, making sexual intercourse enjoyable.

Myth 7:

Viagra is right for everyone that intends to take it. But its again not a fact. It is clearly mentioned that Viagra will only suit you if you are fit to have a sexual relationship. It also depends on the condition of your circulatory system. If you are suffering from heart problems or a high blood pressure than Viagra should not be a choice for you. As it increases the blood flow, it may cause harm to your circulatory system including heart and blood flow pattern. So if you are suffering from these problems, you will have to consult your physician prior taking Viagra.

Myth 8:

Viagra is not a safe drug. It has a tendency to affect the heart and blood circulatory system of a person. It has direct effects on the vessels in the penile tissues. Viagra is also responsible for controlling certain neurotransmitters produced by the brain. It may be dangerous to take Viagra more than once a day. It is not recommended to take Viagra frequently as its overdose can cause loss of vision, hearing impairment and affect the breathing ability. A very people can have anaphylactic shock post use of Viagra. Therefore, Viagra should be taken very carefully, in fact strictly according to doctors recommendation.
It is also very important to consider the intake of Viagra and the timing of sex. One should be very careful about this otherwise it may prove hazardous for your health.

Myth 9:

As the magic of the blue pill is getting a lot of hype amongst men, it is likely that myths about the effects of Viagra will not generate among women. Yes, a curiosity is increasing in women that Viagra can help them too in achieving immediate sexual pleasure. It should be considered that Viagra only improves blood circulation in men so the thought that it can increase libido or sex drive in women genital area is incorrect.
A study has also been conducted on a group of women by researchers of Penn State Medical College. No satisfactory results are obtained from the study.
Therefore, viagra has no real effect on women. Most women reported that they felt nothing else than a few hot flashes after taking Viagra. Low sex drive or other sexual disorders are a cause of unpleasant sex life of women and these are mostly due to psychological issues.
But yes a drug named as flibanserin is being trialled. It is usually termed as the pink pill. This drug deals with underlying causes of low sex drive in women by altering the brain chemistry.
So it is just a myth that Viagra can help women to have their desired sexual intercourse just like men. Rather, it is used in women for other problems like the treatment of fertility issues and menstrual pain.

Myth 10:

People consider Viagra a marketing strategy of the modern marketing world. Viagra is definitely not a marketing strategy. It has a laboratory development history. Viagra is the outcome of an intense effort of scientists. Basically, it was developed for the treatment of heart disease known as stenocardia. Its active ingredient is Sildenafil Citrate. But later on, the testing determines its significant side effects. Therefore, this aspect of the drug was not used again. It was marketed by the name of Viagra, by an American company Pfizer in the 1990s. Since then it has been used as a sexual drug used to help people facing issues regarding impotence.
There are various other brands available in the market. They are termed as generics of Viagra.
For example Cialis and Levitra. The active ingredient is the same in all these competitors but is named differently in each of them. The concentration of the active material and other additives differ in each brand. Among all such sex enhancers, Viagra is proved to be relatively safer. If you want to use a sex enhancer, it will be better for you to choose Viagra and not its generics.
