The pill Viagra (siidenafil citrate) is used to help those that experience erectile dysfunction. It comes in a small blue pill to be taken orally when you are in the mood and if you are experiencing any difficulties with your erection. Erectile dysfunction is defined as when a man has a hard time getting or sustaining an erection. Not enough blood is flowing towards the penis which further prevents the erection.
Unfortunately, over 2 million men in Australia are affected by this condition.
It is also known, that it is not part of aging, but rather a real medical condition that affects many. ED can be caused by depression, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, cancer treatment, spinal cord injury, and many others.
Viagra helps those with ED get and sustain an erection, but be sure to check with your doctor and see which dose and if the medication is right for you.
It works by increasing blood flow to the penis so you can get and keep an erection hard enough for sex. When taken, it usually takes about 30-40 minutes to kick in.
There are some side effects to be aware about however and some may be serious.
Known side effects of taking Viagra are as headache, flushing, upset stomach, abnormal vision and blurred vision, stuffy or runny nose, back pain, muscle pain and nausea.
