Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About Viagra

Men frequently have questions about Viagra and seek answers before taking the drug to treat erectile dysfunction. There is so much information available that it is difficult to know what is valid and what is not. The following are some of the most common questions asked about this treatment.

Can I take this drug if I self-diagnosed my ED?

You should always be cautious of self-diagnosis in general and prescribing your own treatment. It is better to seek medical attention because you may have a health condition that is the underlying cause of your ED. Once the condition is addressed, your ED symptoms may disappear. Only a doctor can accurately diagnose ED. For this reason, you should only use this medication after consulting your doctor.

Is it safe to use if I take other medications?

It depends entirely on the type of medications you take. Men who take nitrates for heart conditions should avoid this drug. If you are taking certain types of medication for high blood pressure, you may be at higher risk for side effects when using Viagra to treat ED symptoms. Your doctor can help determine if this is the best option for you based on your medical history.

Am I still a good candidate for this medication if I only experience ED intermittently?

Most men experience symptoms of ED at some point. The severity of your condition plays no role in whether or not this medication can help you. Regardless of how often you have difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection hard enough to complete sexual intercourse, you still have erectile dysfunction. And this treatment can be a solution to your problem.

Will I get an erection immediately after taking a tablet?

Not only does it take between 30 minutes and one hour for the pill to start working, but sexual stimulation is always required for you to develop an erection. It is not a "magical cure" that causes spontaneous erections. Rather, it is designed to help your body naturally be able to achieve and maintain an erection.

Why are ED medications so popular?

It is not so much that these drugs are "popular" but that erectile dysfunction is a common condition that affects millions of men every year. It is estimated that approximately 1 out of 10 men throughout the world regularly experience ED symptoms. As men age, the prevalence of this disorder increases exponentially.

Does my age matter?

This drug can be used by all adult men. It is not intended for use in teenagers younger than 18 per manufacturer recommendations. Additionally, the effectiveness of Viagra and other ED drugs is less apparent in older men. Studies show that it may not be particularly helpful in men over the age of 80.

How can I be sure this medication really works?

Through numerous clinical studies, Viagra has been proven to be effective for 4 out 5 men who use it. This is an extremely high success rate. In fact, it works so well that men who take it continue to use the medication for years.

Viagra is only the most recent treatment in a long history of attempts to resolve erectile dysfunction. Luckily, it also happens to be the most effective as well. Although medical history does not keep records quite as thoroughly as we might like regarding erectile dysfunction treatment attempts, there is ample evidence showing that taking one simple pill is a vast improvement over other ideas for resolving erection problems. more
