Viagra Info

What is Viagra?

Viagra is the most well-known treatment for adult men with erectile dysfunction, sometimes known as impotence. This is when a man cannot get, or keep a hard, erect penis suitable for sexual activity. Viagra pills have been used to treat erectile dysfunction for over two decades and been proven to be very effective for more than 80% of men.

When you take Viagra pills you may be able to:
Improve your ability to get and maintain an erection
Be more confident in your ability to get and maintain an erection
Be satisfied with the hardness of your erections

What is Sildenafil?

Sildenafil (also known as sildenafil citrate) is the generic version of the Viagra licensed since 2013 in the UK.

What is the difference between Viagra and Sildenafil?

Sildenafil citrate is the active ingredient in Viagra and is available in a generic, unbranded tablet. Sildenafil and Viagra are medically equivalent but Sildenafil is available at a much lower cost.

Generic medicines contain the same active ingredient and are equally effective and medically equivalent as the branded products but are available at a lower price. Generic manufacturers have to demonstrate that they are medically identical to the branded product - i.e. they offer the same quality, strength, stability and effectiveness.

Choosing the Correct Viagra Dosage

The recommended starting dose for Viagra (sildenafil) is one 50mg pill taken 1 hour before sexual activity. If you achieve the desired effect but are suffering from side effects, try lowering the dose to 25mg. If after trying 50mg pills four times without the desired effect, and you are not experiencing side effects, increase the dose to 100mg. If after trying 100mg 8 separate times without effect you should cease treatment and consult your doctor. You should not take Viagra (sildenafil) more than once a day as this will have not increase the effectiveness and may increase the likelihood of experiencing side effects.

How To Take Viagra

You should take Viagra (Sildenafil) about one hour before you plan to have sex. Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water.

Viagra (Sildenafil) can be taken with or without food. However, you may find that Viagra (Sildenafil) takes longer to start working if you take it with a heavy meal.

How does Viagra work?

Viagra belongs to a class of medication known as PDE5 inhibitors. In the presence of sexual stimulation, PDE5 inhibitors such as Viagra relax smooth muscle and increase blood flow to the penis, helping to restore impaired erectile function.

How long does Viagra Last?

Viagra will stay in the body on average 4 hours after dosing. For some men it may remain as long as 5 hours, or a few as 3 hours.

Side Effects of Viagra

Viagra is generally well tolerated and comes in a variety of dosages so the strength can easily be decreased for men experiencing bothersome side effects. The most common side effects include headache, flushing, indigestion, nasal congestion, dizziness, nausea, hot flush and visual disturbances. These common side effects are all transient in nature and should not last more than a few hours. Studies have not shown any effect on sperm motility or morphology.

Counselling

For many men suffering from erectile dysfunction the primary cause may be related to psychological issues and not physical ones.

In these cases, counselling can prove to be a very effective form of treatment. Talking with a mental health professional will help to address issues of stress, anxiety or depression, which can all contribute to erectile dysfunction. For further information contact your GP.
