Viagra: what you need to know, cost, risks and benefits

Viagra is a household name. This is a rare quality in a medication meant to treat Erectile Dysfunction, but it’s important also to recognize why it would be a household name.

Viagra is one of the worlds most prescribed medications, and one of the worlds most counterfeit. Viagra is used to treat Erectile Dysfunction, which is an inability to attain an erection that will allow a man to fulfill the act of intercourse, and is a subject many avoid discussing. However, Erectile Dysfunction affects more than one hundred million men worldwide, and over one million in Australia alone. Viagra is effective, cost efficient, and renowned for having the ability to help a man regain his sexual prowess. It’s no wonder it’s a household name.

Viagra works by relaxing the muscles in and around the penis, not by magic.

 It helps a man to attain an erection naturally through sexual stimulation, and to keep that erection throughout the act of intercourse. It’s active ingredient, Sildenafil Citrate, is one of the most effective Erectile Dysfunction medications on the market. Though it doesn’t cure Erectile Dysfunction entirely, nor does it create sexual desire in and of itself, it comes very close. Viagra is sold in doses between twenty five and one hundred milligrams each, the correct dosage should be discussed with a medical professional as Viagra does require a prescription to purchase in pharmacies in Australia. While it’s possible to purchase Viagra without a prescription through an online pharmacy, most online pharmacies will also require a prescription, and if they do not the chance of the product being illegitimate is a major concern.  You should always be sure that you’re receiving authentic Viagra in all cases. Viagra costs an average of six dollars and twenty cents per packet of four tablets, and is subsidized under the Australian Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. So, not only is Viagra easy to obtain, wildly popular, and well known, but it’s also very affordable to boot. 

When taking Viagra be sure to take it without food as that may cause the drug to take longer to become active.

Once active, Viagra continues to work for up to four hours, though that depends on sexual activity, of course. You should never take more than one dosage of Viagra in any twenty four hour period, no matter how tempting it may seem. If you’ve had a stroke, suffer from heart disease, take medications taking nitrites in any form, or suffer from certain eye diseases like Retinitis Pigmentosa, you should discuss with your physician if Viagra is right for you as it could prove dangerous. Viagra does have some side effects that are rare but can be present and distressing. These include back pain, muscle pain, nausea, dizziness, gastrointestinal discomfort, indigestion, flushed skin, and headaches. Most of these side effects subside on their own and do not prevent most men from using Viagra subsequent times. If you take Viagra and experience these side effects in ways that cause extreme discomfort or if you experience an erection lasting more than four hours or one that is painful, you should seek medical attention.
