What is Viagra?

Viagra is the brand name given to a drug called sildenafil citrate. Viagra, used to treat erectile dysfunction, was introduced to the market by Pfizer in 1998 and the little blue pill has been used by millions of men ever since. Viagra is also available in its generic form, known as just sildenafil. 

It belongs to a group of drugs known as PDE5 (phosphodiesterase) inhibitors. They relax blood vessles which allows for an increased blood flow to the penis to help achieve and maintain erections.

 

How does Viagra work?

When you are sexually stimulated, nitric oxide is released from the nervous system in your penis. The nitric oxide stimulates the production of a messenger called cGMP. The cGMP allows blood to flow into your penis with ease, causing an erection. An enzyme known as PDE-5 breaks down cGMP, so that it is unable to produce erections. Viagra (sildenafil) works by inhibiting PDE-5, in order to maintain a healthy supply of cGMP causing an erection. 

 

Does Viagra work?

Viagra works for 4 in 5 men (in other words, Viagra works 80% of the time). Viagra does not cause a man to be sexually aroused. In order for it to work, you need to be sexually stimulated. If you are not sexually excited, your brain will not produce any nitric oxide and you will not produce any cGMP (responsible for causing erections). 
Clinical trials have shown that when compared to a placebo, Viagra (sildenafil), along with other drugs within the same class, produce a significant improvement in erectile dysfunction. 
However, Viagra isn't for everyone and may not produce the desired results as expected. There are several other alternatives that can be explored. 

 

What if Viagra is not working for me?

If you find that Viagra is not working for you, try again. If you haven't had an erection for a while, it may take your body a while to get used to it. You should give yourself eight separate attempts of allowing your body to adjust to the idea of getting erections again and for you to find the right dose that suits you best. If after eight attempts you find that Viagra is still not working for you, do not loose hope as there are several other treatment options.

 

Is Viagra safe?

Viagra has been used safely for many years by millions of men around the world. It is a treatment that has been designed to help men who have erectile dysfunction. Viagra can be used safely when you have been evaluated by a practitioner. Having an appropriate assesment will minimise any risks, so that you are able to use Viagra in a safe manner.  

 

How much Viagra should I take?

One 50mg tablet taken one hour before sexual activity is the recommended dose of Viagra. This usually works for most men, however, if you are experiencing any unwanted side-effects, then the 50mg tablet may be too strong for you and you should try stepping down to the 25mg tablet.

The 100mg tablets should only be taken by men who find that the 50mg tablet is not producing an erection that is hard enough for penetration. This is the highest strength of Viagra and taking any more than 100mg is unlikely to produce better results. Viagra should only be taken once daily. If you are having sex more than twice a week, it may be best to discuss alternative treatment options, such as Cialis (tadalafil).

 

How long does Viagra take to work?

The usual time Viagra takes to work is around 30-60 minutes, however, this can vary depending on the individual. It also depends on whether or not you have had a meal recently. Viagra is best taken on an empty stomach (or atleast two hours after a meal), as food can affect the absorption of Viagra into your blood stream. 

 

How long does Viagra last for?

Viagra lasts for around 4-5 hours on average, however this may vary depending on the individual. You may notice that after 2-3 hours, the effects begin to wear off. If you have an erection lasting more than 4 hours (priapism), you should seek medical advice. 

 

How often should I take Viagra?

Do no take Viagra more than once a day. This way, you are able to enjoy the benefits of Viagra, whilst keeping the side-effect profile at a minimum. 

 

What other medication can be used instead of Viagra?

For those in whom Viagra isn't working, there are other drugs belonging to the same drug class, which may work better for you. 

Tadalafil - Available as a generic or under its brand name, Cialis. It takes around 30-60 minutes to work and can be effective for up to 36 hours. It is also available as a daily dosing tablet, which takes action after 3-5 days, but has an ongoing effect, allowing for spontaneous sex. 
Avanafil - Available under its branded form known as Spedra. It has a quick onset of action, working in approximately 15-30 minutes. It lasts for around 30-60 minutes. 
Vardenafil - Available only under its branded version known as Levitra. It is the recommended tablet for diabetics, taking 30-60 minutes to work and lasting for 4-6 hours. 

 

Does alcohol effect Viagra?

It is safe to enjoy around 2 units of alcohol whilst taking Viagra. Whilst a moderate amount of alcohol can act as a stimulant and help aide sensation, excessive alcohol consumption can act as a sedative, depressing the central nervous system (i.e. reducing signals to the brain which is an important process in achieving an erection). 
Whilst excessive alcohol consumption can decreases the amount of blood that stays in your penis, negatively affecting erections, a moderate consumption if necessary shouldn't cause a problem. 

 

What is the difference between Viagra and Sildenafil?

Viagra and Sildenafil are medically the same. Sildenafil is the active ingredient that is contained in Viagra. Since 2013, when the patent for Viagra ran out, it allowed other companies to produce Sildenafil at a fraction of the price. 
Before generic drugs are awarded a UK license for sale, they must demonstrate that they are pharmaceutically the same as the branded alternative.
