The Viagra Revolution

Viagra: the little blue pill that changed it all.

Now, the topic that once caused so much embarrassment is likely banter shared with mates over a beer.

Perhaps not coincidentally though, this same year also saw the divorce rates amongst senior citizens skyrocket, as well as a big rise in their rates of STD transmission!

Use of Viagra

Viagra is used to treat erectile dysfunction in men: that is the inability to get or maintain a viable erection sufficient to complete sexual intercourse.

Like most erectile dysfunction drugs, Viagra enhances bloodflow by relaxing smooth muscle tissue, increasing blood flow to the penis and improving erectile function. This is achieved by active ingredient Sildenafil, which belongs to a class of ED drugs called PDE-5 inhibitors.

Viagra does not increase libido, and it will only work if you are sexually aroused. It is not suitable for women and is available only with a prescription.

How Viagra Works

Viagra, like most erection drugs, generally takes about thirty minutes for its effects to be felt, although this may be delayed if taken with food. It should be taken about an hour before sex. Duration of the effect is usually about four hours.

Viagra Dosage

Standard dosage for Viagra is 50-100mg, but sometimes 25mg may be prescribed too. Your doctor will advise what dosage is best for you. Do not exceed daily dosage recommendation.
