Viagra: Is it really today’s holy grail for men or just another fab?

In this article I would like to bend your ear about a product that is so famous not only for its effectiveness, but for the way it is mocked, that it needs no introduction. I’m talking about that little blue pill known as viagra. Aside from being a punchline at parties, what use does it have? Is it right for you? And can it help you be a better, more capable lover?


Viagra has basically been around forever now, being approved by the FDA back in March of 1998 it was the very first oral treatment that had ever been introduced to help treat erectile dysfunction in the United States. The product was then put up out for sale later that very same year.

         But what does it DO that makes it so effective?

Viagra treats erectile dysfunction by  relaxing the muscles that are found within your blood vessels in order to increase blood flow to areas within your body. But before taking this miracle drug to get your mojo back, there are several things you should consider before taking this medicine.

If you happen to have an allergic reaction to sildenafil then viagra is not for you for this reason, also due to the way that viagra can cause shifts in blood pressure it is important to tell your doctor if you are using a drug in the nitrate family to help treat or alleviate chest pains or heart problems. These changes in blood pressure can be particularly dangerous for those users.

Be sure to tell your doctor if you have ever had any of the following conditions so you can determine if viagra is right for you;

  •   – a stomach ulcer
  •   – if there is any health condition in your life that you have been told means you should avoid sexual intercourse
  •   –  a liver or kidney disease
  •   – high blood pressure or low blood pressure
  •   –  heart disease, a history of heart attack, arrhythmia, history of stroke, heart failure, or any type of coronary heart disease.
  •   – blood or bleeding disorders such as Leukemia, sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, or multiple myeloma.

If you are prescribed viagra it is important that, as with any medication, you take it exactly as prescribed. You should never take more or less than you are supposed to in order to try and change the effect of the drug.

Viagra should be taken not earlier than one hour before you plan on having sexual intercourse, and you should also not take it more than once per day.

Ultimately only your doctor can make the final decision, so make sure you trust their judgement when it comes to any drug that can have any effect on your blood pressure. Be sure to be respectful to their wishes, and as always be happy, and be healthy!

    After I reached 60 years old, I just couldn’t seem to get the same erection I used to have when I was a young stallion. I used to please my wife all night every night. When I got older, I just couldn’t do it anymore. Then I started taking Viagra. That one little pill every so often has done wonders for my erection and for my marriage and love life. Now, I’m back to being the young stallion. I get a bigger erection, and I have it for much longer.

    I always heard about Viagara and its potency and benefits for aging men like myself. The Almighty “blue pill” is something I always heard of but was reluctant until I tried it. Finally, I decided to buy it one day because at 49, I’m just not what I used to be. I received a prescription for it and got it at my local pharmacy. That night, me and my wife decided to have intimate time and see if the pill would work and boy oh boy did it work. She got ripped apart in a good way. God bless Sildenafil

    I figured I would be cursed to just have a limp member and be unable to have sex until the day I died, being in my 70’s and alone. But after the first few times I took Viagra, I knew it didn’t have to be that way. The pill brought me back my happiness with a firm and lasting erection. I’m a pleased and eager senior once again, and the ladies will learn that again too!

    In 2015 I was diagnosed with erectile dysfunction. In 2019 I went to the doctor and began taking Viagra. Viagra has increased the firmness and duration of my erections. I started taking 25mg and feel much better. My doctor said that Viagra can also be used to improve blood pressure, and my blood flow throughout my body has improved.

    I was 40 years old when I started noticing a difference. My wife encouraged me to talk to my doctor. He suggested I try taking Viagra. I started out taking the 100 mg. Unfortunately, I started having some severe side effects. I had a burning feeling in my stomach, followed by dizziness, increased need to urinate, stomach pain, and tenderness in the stomach area. My doctor lowered my dosage to 25 mg, and it seems to be working fine. I no longer have any of the side effects, but yet, I still get the benefits. I am so happy I talked to my doctor, and so is my wife. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

    Viagra was something I never considered because it was such a running joke growing up, but after I ran out of other options my doctor suggested it to me. I’m here to say it WORKS I am like a brand new man in bed and beaming with pride!
