Scientists have developed a new drug to increase blood flow to the heart muscle and lower blood pressure. However, he did not meet expectations. But it was noted that this drug provides significant blood flow to the male genital organs, and, as a result, the quality of erection improves. This drug was named "Viagra". The active ingredient of the drug is sildenafil.

  • with atherosclerosis;
  • with damage to the nerves leading to the vessels of the men’s family jewel;
  • with spinal cord injury and other concomitant clinical conditions;

When do you need to be careful?

About Sildenafile or Viagra, everyone has heard a lot. But few people know about the side effects and the serious consequences of uncontrolled reception.

  • Caution in the use of sildenafil is necessary for people who are going after the reception to manage various kinds of mechanisms. Sometimes after taking the drug, a person may experience a rapidly passing change in color perception with a predominance of blue colors. In this regard, the leadership of one of the American airlines has banned its pilots to take Viagra an hour before the flight.
  • Especially careful is to be people with severe cardiovascular diseases (heart failure, angina, impaired cerebral circulation). They need constant medical supervision. Sexual intercourse is a serious exercise for a person with cardiac problems. This should be remembered if symptoms such as pains in the heart occur during physical exertion and / or at rest, memory and mental performance problems that have progressed over the past few months. A serious approach to the question is also for those who have suffered a heart attack or stroke. This means that it is imperative that you consult with your doctor about the appropriateness of taking sildenafil.
  • There are some men who should not take this drug. Since sildenafil is involved in biochemical processes associated with the exchange of nitric oxide, it can interact with other drugs called nitrates, which are used to treat heart disease. Therefore, any man who takes nitrates in any form should not take sildenafil under any circumstances.
  • Caution should be exercised in those patients who have previously had priapism. Although to date there have not been a single report of the occurrence of priapism while taking sildenafil, patients who have a predisposition to its occurrence also need serious medical supervision.
  • As for the effect of sildenafil on healthy men who have heard about the miraculous drug and want to satisfy curiosity, then, according to experts of Pfizer, developer of Viagra, the drug has no effect on them! That is, if using a Viagra pill you felt some sort of revolutionary breakthrough in your own sexuality, then it seems that you should go for a consultation with an andrologist. This does not necessarily mean the presence of any disease, but the examination does not hurt.

The most common side effects are:

  • headache (15.8%);
  • sudden reddening of the face and neck (10.5%);
  • lack of smell (5.5%) and redness of the nasal cavity (4.2%).

These side effects were, as a rule, transient in nature, mild and moderately severe, and did not dictate the need to discontinue treatment.

From the foregoing, it can be concluded that the current knowledge about this drug allows it to be prescribed to patients, both for occasional and for long-term treatment of erectile dysfunction. Of course, with all the precautions.
