1. What is VIAGRA®?

VIAGRA® (sildenafil citrate) is a tried and tested drug that treats men who suffer from erectile dysfunction or impotence. Developed by Pfizer, VIAGRA® was officially approved by the US Food & Drug Administration in 1998.

2. What does VIAGRA® do?

VIAGRA® enhances erection by increasing and prolonging the blood flow to the penis. By inhibiting the enzyme phosphodiesterase 5, VIAGRA® prevents the breakdown of cyclic GMP, which relaxes the muscles in the arterial wall of the penis and allows blood to flow in. Since VIAGRA® maintains and enhances an erection, sexual stimulus and arousal is required for the drug to take effect.

3. How much VIAGRA® do I take?

The typical dosage is 50mg. However, we recommend that you start with the minimum dosage of 25mg and increase to 50mg if necessary. Never take more than 100mg of VIAGRA® in one dose.

4. Can I take more than one dose per day?

It is recommended that you restrict usage to one dose per day.

5. How long does it take to work?

It can take from 30 minutes to 2 hours for VIAGRA® to take effect. Generally, it is recommended to take VIAGRA® one hour before you plan to have sex.

6. Do I need to get a prescription in order to purchase VIAGRA®?

Yes, VIAGRA® is a prescription medication, so you will need to talk to your health care provider to find out if it is right for you. Be sure to ask your health care provider if your heart is healthy enough to handle the extra strain of sexual activity.

7. What are the possible side effects of taking VIAGRA®?

With VIAGRA®, the most common side effects are headache, facial flushing, and upset stomach. VIAGRA® may also briefly cause bluish or blurred vision, or sensitivity to light. In the rare event of an erection lasting more than 4 hours, seek immediate medical help. If you have chest pains, dizziness, or nausea during sex, stop and immediately tell your health care provider. Remember to protect yourself and your partner from sexually transmitted diseases.

8. Is there any medication that shouldn't be mixed with VIAGRA® ?

If you take any nitrate medications (e.g., nitroglycerin, isosorbide dinitrate), you need to discuss with your health care provider whether or not VIAGRA® is an option for you.

9. Should I keep VIAGRA® in the fridge?

No, VIAGRA® should be stored at room temperature.

10. What is the success rate of VIAGRA® ?

82% of patients who take VIAGRA® experience an improvement in their erections. That means more than 4 out of every 5 couples who try VIAGRA® benefit from it. VIAGRA® improves erections in most men regardless of how long they have had erectile dysfunction, what caused it or how old they are. And the effectiveness of VIAGRA® has been proven in clinical studies of thousands of patients.
