Viagra; The Perfect Pick Me Up?

Erectile dysfunction is somewhat of a taboo topic for many men and indeed many couples, with lots of sufferers eventually shying away and ignoring the elephant in the room. In many relationships, this causes massive angst and distress as sex is unquestionably an important aspect between couples. This is hardly ideal for any man. So, what can you do? Well, the good news for millions of men all over the world is a small blue wonder pill called Viagra.

Viagra is a medicine which is used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction and was introduced by pharmaceutical giant Pfizer in 1998. Since then it has been described as a revolution in modern medicine and ‘the little blue wonder pill’. From its release, Viagra has generated hundreds of millions in profit for its manufacturers and despite other pills similar to Viagra as well as cheaper generics it still remains a firm favourite among users of erectile dysfunction medication.

So why the hype? Well firstly it should be noted that doctors prescribe Viagra as a first line treatment this is because it is proven to be safe yet effective; two factors of paramount importance in prescribing treatments of any nature. Indeed, Viagra takes greater prominence compared to its competitor such as Tadalafil perhaps due to the fact it has been on the market for much longer thus making it somewhat of a more tried and tested treatment compared to other medications.

Exploring this further we can consider that an important reason as to why Viagra is so successful is that it can be used even when patients have co-existing illnesses such as hypertension and diabetes. This is especially significant as these co-morbidities are among some of the most common causes of erectile dysfunction. Indeed, for many men who are on treatment for these other conditions like diabetes will appreciate that sometimes they can’t always take other medication as it may produce adverse drug interactions which may be dangerous. However, this is fortunately not the case with Viagra and what is even better news; treating erectile dysfunction when the user already has another medical co-morbidity has proven very successful.

One particular study which has carried out research into this area has found that of 8000 male volunteers of which 20.3% had diabetes type one or two, 30.9% had hypertension and 5.8% had ischemic heart disease all had an alleviation in their symptoms of male impotence. To consider the exact figures associated with this trial 59% of men with diabetes, 68% of men with hypertension and 69% of those with ischemic heart disease all showed a notable reduction in signs and symptoms of erectile dysfunction in accordance with Viagra treatment. Indeed, research has shown that not only is Viagra suited for so many men of all degrees of health, it is still extremely successful in doing so.

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

Add a review

Viagra is also extremely good in that it is reliable and predictable in the nature of its use, which in this particular instance is an important aspect! As mentioned, Viagra is usually taken as one 50mg tablet which should be taken thirty minutes before sex and research proving this claim have been very promising. This particular clinical trial showed that the average time for a penis to achieve sufficient rigidity was 25 minutes and the range of recorded times among volunteers extended from 15 to 37 minutes. This is a very small time frame which allows users to feel secure that their medication is working. It should be noted that volunteers in this study fasted and so readers should be aware that the times from which the effects of Viagra may be observed may be extended in men who have eaten prior to taking treatment for their erectile dysfunction. On another point, Viagra is a once a day treatment which makes it not only reliable but also very convenient as well.

SatisfiedAnother reason Viagra is a perfect pick me up is the lack of side effects it possesses. Indeed, the most common side effects are headaches and facial flushing. To really demonstrate how mild these side effects are we can consider a study. The study which was conducted on the use of Viagra’s side effects found that of the 3700 users only 2.5% (less than 100 people!) actually stopped using Viagra on account of adverse drug interactions. This is even more impressive considering that 2.3% of volunteers stopped a placebo medication on account of side effects. This really highlights how tolerable Viagra is and that adverse effects from the tablets really aren’t a cause for concern for its users.

In addition to the above, Viagra is also rather perfect in the sense that it can be purchased safely online provided you chose a reputable provider such as Assured Pharmacy. Long gone are the days of awkwardly discussing embarrassing problems in the bedroom with a GP who you maybe had to wait three weeks to see. Now men can purchase Viagra easily and discreetly from the comfort of their home and what is more safety will not be compromised either as at Assured Pharmacy users fill in our own online medical questionnaire which is reviewed by a UK based doctor who will determine if you are suitable for the treatment. This is extremely convenient for the many people who live busy, energetic lives and don’t want erectile dysfunction keeping them down.

In conclusion, there are many reasons as to why Viagra is the perfect little pick me up; convenience, lack of side effects, suitability and the fact it can be bought safely online. It is for these reasons readers can have the knowledge and confidence to tackle their erectile dysfunction symptoms. Now is the time to try Viagra for a perfect ‘pick me up’.
