Viagra is considered a “miracle” drug by many men who have erectile dysfunction. Brought to the public in 1998, Viagra was the first oral treatment approved to treat erectile dysfunction in the United States. It is a prescribed medication that helps by increasing the blood flow to the penis to help men achieve and maintain an erection when they are sexually aroused and stimulated, very similar to blowing up a balloon. Andrology Australia reports 1 in 10 men are unable to achieve an erection and 1 in 5 men over the age of 40 experiences erectile dysfunction. Over 23 million men have been prescribed Viagra. Roughly 4 out of 5 males that take Viagra can get and keep erections hard enough for sex.
What is erectile dysfunction? Erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to achieve or sustain an erection for sexual intercourse. Erections actually start in the brain and then your brain tells your body to have blood flow into your penis. Stress, depression, anxiety, alcohol, and physical attraction are the leading factors causing erectile dysfunction. Try limiting and overcoming these factors before trying Viagra. If all fails, then Viagra may be perfect for you!
To get a prescription to Viagra you need to start talking to a doctor about your symptoms and if the doctor believes that you need Viagra, then he can prescribe you it. Viagra is offered in 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg. Like any other prescription drug, there is possible side effects which include an erection that will not go away, sudden vision loss in one or both eyes, sudden hearing decrease or hearing loss. Also, before taking or getting prescribed Viagra, let your doctor know if you have or have had heart problems, irregular heart, chest paints, heart failure, or narrowing of the aortic valve. The doctor also needs to know if you have had heart surgery within the last 6 months, pulmonary hypertension, a stroke, low or high blood pressure, a deformed penis shape, an erection that lasted more than 4 hours, problems with your blood cells such as sickle cell, anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia, retinitis pigments or if anyone in your family has had that, had severe vision loss, any bleeding problems, have or have had stomach ulcers, liver problems, kidney problems, kidney dialysis, and most of all, let the doctor know if you have any other medical conditions.
Also let them know if you take any other prescription medication, any over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements because Viagra may interact and affect your current medication causing severe side effects. Make sure before attempting to consult a doctor that you write everything that you currently take or currently have so you will not forget to mention these because the mixing and interaction with other medication can be severe. Some of the common side effects of Viagra are headaches, upset stomachs, abnormal vision, blurred vision, stuffy or runny nose, back pain, muscle pain, nausea, dizziness, and a rash. Some less common side effects are bladder or pain during urination, increased frequency of urinating, burning feeling in the chest, burning, crawling, itching, numbness, prickling, or tingling feelings, cloudy or bloody urine, drowsiness, eye pain, dry mouth, fever or chills, migraines, severe headaches, increased sweating, shakiness, slurred speech, and trouble breathing. It is always best if you are not sure, to consult a doctor on the safe side. Viagra does not protect you against sexually transmitted diseases, so please practice safe sex.
Viagra starts to work between 30-60 minutes and you only take it when you want to have sex. Be sure to take Viagra only once per day. You may take it up to 4 hours before sex and after you are finished having sex, your erection should away. Viagra is not for women or for children, please keep them out of reach of children or anyone without consulting a doctor. During sexual activity, if you have any of these symptoms, stop please consult a doctor immediately. Do not drink alcohol with Viagra and any use of grapefruit products. If you are having any ringing in your ears or sudden hearing loss, an irregular heartbeat, swelling in hands, ankles, or feet, shortness of breath, seizure or feel light headed, please contact a doctor before continuing.
Buying Viagra online can be risky because most of the online pharmacies that sell Viagra may not necessarily be Viagra. It could be a mixture of many other medications, placebos, poisons, or something that is not even remotely close to Viagra. There is only one true way of actually getting Viagra and that is consulting a doctor and getting a doctor to prescribe you Viagra. That way you know what you are taking and in the event that you have any complications, you can tell the doctor exactly what you took and what exactly is happening to you. Otherwise, you are taking a huge risk and that risk can possibly result in death. After googling and reviewing online pharmacies that sell Viagra, I have found that you still do need to get a prescription to order Viagra from a reputable website in Australia. If you do plan on still purchasing Viagra online, please make sure it has a licensed pharmacist to answer any questions, it requires a prescription, and offers direct contact with someone who can discuss any problems or issues.
In conclusion, Viagra has definitely helped out millions and millions of men achieve an erection due to erectile dysfunction. It does have some side effects but, in my opinion, the ability to fix an erection dysfunction is definitely worth the risk. Being up front with your doctor with your current medication and current health will also give you breathing room. I did not see the reward in trying to buy it online without a prescription because it is all risks. There were websites that took prescriptions if you were too embarrassed to go to the pharmacy to pick it up. Men do not be embarrassed to go see your doctor about erectile dysfunction, this may be able to improve your life and your spouse’s. Erectile dysfunction can be cured and your first step is to go see a doctor and then you can go back to getting your sex life back!
