The little blue pill, as it is commonly called, better known as Viagra, or its scientific name sildenafil. It is a drug than can be prescribed to people who are suffering from erectile dysfunction (also known as impotence). It was discovered by scientists working for the Pfizer, an american pharmaceutical corporation. It became available to the market in the year 1998.
Viagra side effects
Like most drugs, it can have side effects, most commonly reported side effects include headaches, nasal congestion, and indigestion and flushing of the skin (red), Less common side effects include vision issues, chest pain, temporary deafness, bladder pain, and bone pain. I’ve listed a lot of side effects but the psychological gain must easily out-way the negatives otherwise it would not be so popular. It has had a lot of money put into marketing it, to get people to know and take it in as a household name, or at least know of it. One of the best adverts I have personally seen was a car with the registration plate reading ViaGRA, it made my day.
There are alternatives, like Cialis but these are lesser known. I believe Viagra pills are available as 25 mg pills, it should be taken at least 30 minutes before sexually activity, but up to four hours before and it would still work. After prolonged use a tolerance to it may be built up and dependent on the user the dose can be increased up to a recommended maximum of 100 mg. Viagra should be limited to one use per day. Viagra has other uses besides the obvious one, it could be used to reduce pulmonary hypertension, burn fat! Additionally used for fighting prostate cancer, and things like altitude sickness. During my research I even read it can be used to keep fresh cut flowers standing up! I have found that it can easily be purchased online for as little as £2.50 per 100mg pill, ranging up to £6.50 per 100mg pill. I would not recommend risking your health by buying pills online, it is available via the national health service on prescription, costing approximately eight GBP. Although this may be slightly embarrassing to talk to a doctor about, I think it would be the best option as you may be taking it for the wrong reasons, and or it will fix the short term problem, but in the long term you want the cause erectile dysfunction removed if possible. Since Viagra works by increasing the blood flow to the genitals, it would be easy to wonder if it could help women in that department too. I have found reports of studies that it does work for women in much the same way, increasing sexual excitement. I wonder what other discoveries for uses of Viagra will happen in the future, trials on plants maybe?
