Nowadays almost everyone knows what Viagra is, and what it is used for, however there are a lot of details that people still ignore about this medicine.
At first, researchers at the Pfizer pharmaceutical company weren’t looking to solve any erectile dysfunction problem, they were testing a chemical compound called sildenafil in order to treat hypertension or high blood pressure, as well as a form of cardiovascular disease best known as angina pectoris.
As an unexpected effect of the research, this drug turned to be an excellent way to increase the blood pressure towards the penis when tested on male individuals. Although sildenafil was patented in 1996, it wasn’t until march 27, 1998, when the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved its use.
Even when Viagra has been studied in more than 23,000 men, according to the Viagra’s official webpage (https://www.viagra.com/learning/is-it-right-for-me), the only person that can accurately assure that this drug is appropriated to treat your impotence is a doctor. Therefore, everyone planning to buy this drug should take in consideration that a medical prescription is needed, not only because on most of the cases it will be mandatory to present it before buying, but also to avoid any possible, and undesirable side effect.
Yes, there could be side effects such as priapism, which is the technical word to name an endless erection. If your erection endures more than 4 hours, and you resist consulting with a specialist, you can take for granted that your penis will be damaged permanently.
Another collateral effect that customers have reported after taking the blue pill is a sudden vision loss in one eye or even in both. Specialists usually name this symptom as NAION (non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy). Again, in the case this happen to you, you should call your doctor right away and please, stop taking Viagra.
And last but not least, after taking this drug, some people experiment a hearing decrease or, in the worst of the cases, a total hearing loss. Some others have only a ringing in their ears or a kind of dizziness.
Nevertheless, don’t panic! Every single medicine has its contraindications, one just have to be sure not to fulfill any of the following conditions: be taking medicines called nitrates, usually recommended as a chest pain treatment, or guanylate cyclase stimulators often prescribed for pulmonary hypertension. Besides, be sure you aren’t allergic to sildenafil, as this is the main VIAGRA’s chemical component.
The list is much longer that this one, there are a lot of other medicines that could cause side effects when combined with the blue pill, among them are antifungal, antibiotics, as well as some HIV protease inhibitors.
Although the knowing of possible serious side effects should encourage us to consulting a specialist before buying Viagra, in Australia there are some ways to buy this oral medication that treats impotence without a medical prescription. One of them is by visiting some on-line pharmacies that makes it easier for many people who prefer to avoid showing up because it is a sign of being suffering some erectile dysfunction which is a very personal issue, or because any other reason. Some of these sites offer an anonymous delivering service, which includes nondescript boxes. Plus, buying Viagra on-line is cheaper, some online pharmacies even offer 10% discount for repeat customers, and availability 24/7.
