Viagra treatment

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or keep an erection firm enough to have sexual intercourse. It’s sometimes referred to as impotence, although this term is now used less often. Occasional ED isn’t uncommon. Many men experience it during times of stress. Frequent ED, however, can be a sign of health problems that need treatment. It can also be a sign of emotional or relationship difficulties that may need to be addressed by a professional.

ED Symptoms:

  • Age (40-70 years old)

What is Viagra?

Viagra is the trade name for a drug called Sildenafil. Viagra can help men with erectile dysfunction (male impotence) by enhancing the erectile response when a man is sexually stimulated.

When Was Viagra Invented?

Sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, was originally developed in the 1980s as a treatment for angina. During testing, Pfizer discovered that the medication was more effective at treating erectile dysfunction than angina and decided to market it for this purpose.

After undergoing clinical testing throughout the 1990s, Viagra was patented in 1996 and went onto the market in 1998 after receiving FDA approval. This means that it’s been in use for over 20 years, making it the oldest FDA-approved erectile dysfunction treatment on the market.

What Viagra is used for?

Viagra is used to treat erectile dysfunction, more commonly known as impotence, in men. This is when a man cannot get, or keep, a hard erect penis suitable for sexual activity.
Viagra belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors.
It works by relaxing the blood vessels in your penis when you are sexually excited. This allows blood to flow into your penis, allowing you to get an erection in a natural way.

When Should You Consider Using Viagra?

Viagra can be a safe, effective treatment for men of any age. You should consider using Viagra if you experience erectile dysfunction that affects your sex life, whether it’s an occasional issue or something that occurs frequently.

How to take Viagra?

Take Viagra exactly as your doctor has prescribed.

How much to take?

Your doctor will decide the correct dose for you depending on your condition and response.
This can be one 25 mg tablet a day or one 50 mg tablet a day or one 100 mg tablet a day.

How to take it?

Swallow the tablet whole with a full glass of water.

When to take it?

Take your dose of Viagra about one hour before you intend to have sex.
The amount of time Viagra takes to start working varies from person to person, but it normally takes between half an hour and one hour.
You may find Viagra takes longer to work if you take it with a heavy meal.
Viagra will work only if you are sexually excited.

How Long Does Viagra Stay in Your System?

The effects of Viagra typically last for three to four hours, after which the medication stops being effective at preventing erectile dysfunction. If you take Viagra on a fairly empty stomach and do not eat a large meal after using it, it will typically take five to six hours for it to exit your system.

Does Viagra Expire?

Like most medications, Viagra can become less effective over time and expire if it’s left unused for too long. If your Viagra has expired, do not use it.
