Viagra / Sildenafil Information:
Viagra (generic name: Sildenafil) is a drug which is prescribed to assist with erectile dysfunction (erection problems or impotence). It is the most common medication for such problems prescribed by doctors. The drug works by helping to achieve an erection and maintain it long enough for sexual intercourse to take place, but only works with sexual stimulation. Viagra does not work without sexual stimulation and does not increase libido or sexual desire. Many men experience erection problems and erectile dysfunction can occur at any age, but is more common among men over the age of 30. Erectile dysfunction is also more common in men who have or have had an enlarged prostate and men suffering from depression.
Viagra / Sildenafil Side Effects:
The common side effects associated with Viagra may include headaches, diarrhea, back pain, congestion, rashes and stomach upset. If you experience one or more of the following more severe side effects you should seek medical attention immediately: chest pain, changes in heartbeat, difficulty urinating, blurred vision, and allergic reaction which may include swelling of the mouth, itching, and rashes.
Viagra / Sildenafil Directions:
Viagra comes in oral jelly and tablet forms. It should be taken orally prior to sexual stimulation. You should not exceed one tablet in 24 hours. As with any medication, you should always follow the dosage information on the packet, and should take the advice of the doctor who prescribed the medication as they will be aware of any pre-existing medical conditions that you may have.
Viagra / Sildenafil Precautions:
