What is Viagra (Sildenafil)

Sildenafil is a type of medication used to treat erectile dysfunction in men. The most well-known brand for Sildenafil is Viagra although there are many other types of erectile dysfunction medication that also contain Sildenafil.

Viagra, also sold under the name Sildenafil, is a drug which is used to treat erectile dysfunction. The medicine works by increasing the blood flow to the penis in order to help penile erection. It is reported to be highly successful, with at least two thirds of patients reporting to have an improved erection after taking Viagra tablets.

Viagra can also be prescribed for men and women to treat pulmonary hypertension which is a condition of high blood pressure in the blood vessels which supply blood to the lungs.

Contrary to many different myths surrounding Sildenafil, taking it alone will not give you an erection. You need to be sexually aroused for it to work and give you an erection.

It is safe for men aged 18 and older to consume Viagra for erectile dysfunction. However, Viagra can be taken by adults and children ages 1 or over for the treatment or pulmonary hypertension.

Viagra has been sold in the UK for 25 years and was originally created to help treat people with Angina. As the drug was being tested to see how effective it was in treating individuals suffering from Angina, many men reported to have one side effect in common, Erections. The way in which Viagra was used changed forever and in 1998 the food and drug administration approved the sale of Viagra throughout the UK as a treatment for erectile dysfunction.

However if you suffer from erectile dysfunction and have sex when your penis is not fully erect, Viagra will enable you to have a fully erect penis.
