Main things to know about Viagra

Important information needed before taking Viagra

The best known product for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, Viagra was launched onto the market in 1998 by the pharmaceutical company Pfizer. Advertising campaigns over the last fifteen years have only aided the popularity of the treatment, with footballer Pele among the notable names to have promoted the product.

As a direct result of its success, Viagra is now equally recognisable quite simply as the 'little blue pill'. Despite the array of alternative treatments which now exist, Viagra undoubtedly remains the number one medicine for patients who suffer from erectile dysfunction.

Health care advice for those taking Viagra

Viagra is used to treat men who suffer from erectile dysfunction, otherwise known as impotence. Patients who have this condition are unable to achieve an erection sufficient for a satisfactory sexual encounter. The cause can be attributed to several factors, both physical and psychological.

The active ingredient in Viagra is sildenafil citrate and when patients take a tablet sildenafil helps to relax the blood vessels in the penis, thus increasing blood flow, which helps a man achieve and subsequently maintain an erection.

Viagra will only work after sexual stimulation and contrary to popular myths, the treatment does not cause a man to have an erection for four hours continuously.

What are the recommended Viagra dosages

Viagra is available in dosages of 25mg, 50mg and 100mg. Generally the recommended initial dosage would be 50mg, with patients advised to increase the dosage should the effects prove too weak or advised to lower the dosage to 25mg should negative side effects present, or if the 50mg dosage seems too strong.

Depending on a patient's medical history a doctor may limit the dosage.

Viagra will begin to work around 40-60 minutes after taking a pill and, as mentioned before, only after sexual stimulation. The effects of the treatment will last for four hours, meaning that Viagra can help a patient to achieve an erection at any point during this arc of time.

Viagra should be taken on an empty stomach and patients must not drink alcohol when they take Viagra as it can impede the effects of the treatment.

Never exceed the recommended dosage.

What are the side effects when taking Viagra?

As is the case with all medication, some patients do report a number of negative side effects from taking Viagra, some of the most common being:

  • Headache
  • Reddening of the face
  • Runny or blocked nose
  • Indigestion
  • Prolonged erection exceeding four hours (contact your doctor straight away)
  • Sensitivity to light or blurred vision
  • Dizziness

Mild side effects are common but you should consult the doctor immediately if you are worried about any of them. It may be the case that an alternative treatment could be more suitable.

How can you store Viagra?

Store the treatment in a cool, dry place and keep out of the way of children.

Do not, under any circumstances give this treatment to anybody else to try regardless of whether they report the same symptoms as you or not.

Do not keep or take out of date medication; take it to your local pharmacy where they will be able to dispose of it safely.
