Generic Viagra

Viagra is a PDE inhibitor used by men all over the world to deal with their impotence (more exactly defined as erectile dysfunction. Viagra first appeared back in 1998, and was soon approved by the FDA as a safe and highly efficient remedy. It’s interesting, however, that the original use for sildenafil (the active ingredient of Viagra) was to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension. After the appearance of Viagra, dealing with erectile dysfunction became a lot easier. Before, a man had to resort to all kinds of herbal and medicinal remedies to get a small chance of obtaining an erection. Another popular way was a phentolamine injection, which gave the patient an instant erection for some time.

Viagra offered a new approach to this sensitive problem. Today, all you need to do to treat erectile dysfunction is buy Viagra at the pharmacy (either regular or virtual one) and take the dose required before having sex. Viagra comes in doses of 25, 50, 75 and 100 mg, each one taken depending on the severity of one’s impotence, as well as their general health condition, medical problems they have and a few other factors.

If you are not sure about the dose you need to be using, talking to a qualified health care professional is recommended. It’s usual for the patient to be started on a lower dose. However, the dose can later be adjusted if necessary. The rule of thumb here is to take the minimal efficient dose.

Although Viagra is very safe and highly efficient, using it for recreational purposes (i.e. in people that do not have erectile dysfunction and experience occasional performance problems due to temporary stress) is not recommended. This drug has been specially designed for male patients with a serious problem related to insufficient blood flow to the penis, and should be used only if necessary.
