7 Questions about Viagra

Viagra is a commonly-prescribed drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. It works by making the nervous system release nitric oxide into the tissue of the penis. The nitric oxide helps in the production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate which dilates the arteries in the penis. The arteries and tissue fill with blood and an erection occurs.

This is something that most people are aware of to some extent even if they don’t know the exact mechanics of the drug’s effects. That said, there are many questions around Viagra and I thought we’d look at a few of them.

01: When Did Viagra go on Sale?

Originally developed in the 1980s, Viagra was patented in 1996 and was released to the market with FDA approval in 1998.

02: Does it always Work?

Not really, I realize that’s a bit of a let-down but let me explain a bit first before you give up hope. Viagra is a drug that affects you physically, improving blood flow in your penis to allow for an erection; it does absolutely nothing for your mental state. As such, it’s possible that you may still have some form of erectile dysfunction even with Viagra in your system. This usually stems from some psychological issue that you may be experiencing. Ergo, Viagra doesn’t always work.

03: How long before it starts Working?

Viagra usually starts working in 30 minutes or so, although, if you’ve eaten a large meal it can take up to an hour to take effect. With that in mind, once it starts working the effects can last up to four hours.

04: What about Side-Effects?

Viagra can have a variety of side effects ranging in severity. These can occur following an overdose or negative interaction with whatever medication you’re already taking. The less severe side effects include:

  • Back pain
  • Muscular pain
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

More serious side effects include:

  • Sudden loss of vision
  • Loss of hearing
  • Priapism (A painful, long lasting erection)
  • Low blood pressure

The side effects will usually go away after a day or so. If, however, the side effects should become more serious; then you should immediately consult your doctor. Another possible side effect is an allergic reaction to the medication. Allergic reactions can range from something mild (i.e. a rash) to something more serious (i.e. swelling and difficulty breathing).

05: Can I Purchase/Use Viagra without a Prescription?

No, in most places Viagra is a prescription medication which means that you need to have medical approval and a prescription from your doctor before you can purchase the drug from your local pharmacy.

06: Is it Necessary to Treat Erectile Dysfunction?

Not really, in some cases; it’s possible to treat erectile dysfunction via other methods so no, taking Viagra isn’t always needed. Edpilula.net is a well known supplier if you need a generic version. 

07: What about Alternatives?

When it comes to alternatives, especially natural alternatives, I’d recommend extreme caution. There isn’t much in terms of scientific proof that these natural alternatives work so consulting your doctor beforehand is a must. With that said, there are certain alternatives that you can use if you’d prefer; although, like I said there isn’t a guarantee that it’ll work for you. On the other hand, if you’re looking to other, shadier drugs to aid in your sex life; well now you’re asking for trouble.

Forgetting that the Viagra itself may react negatively to whatever additional drug you use, you’re also risking your health and serious legal repercussions.

In Conclusion

Well, that wraps it all up; I was aiming for five but I got seven questions instead. All I can say is that I hope it helps you out and that I hope you found this informative.
