The drug sildenafil is marketed under the popular brand Viagra. It is used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED).  

Viagra is in a tablet form and comes in three doses25mg, 50mg, and 100mgIt belongs to the class of drugs known asphosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors (PDE5i). Other drugs belonging to this class include Cialis (tadalafil), Stendra (avanafil) and Levitra (vardenafil)The mechanism of action is the same as all the ED drugs. However, there are subtle differences between them.

Sildenafil is a common and affordable medication used in the treatment of ED. The active ingredient in Viagra is 'Sildenafil Citrate', and it is a potent phosphodiesterase (PDE5) enzyme inhibitor.

Clinically there is no difference between Viagra and sildenafil. Viagra is a brand of sildenafil produced by Pfizer. Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra. Viagra was the first of its kind to be introduced in the market, and hence it managed to create quite a hype. This is the reason why ED medications are commonly called 'Viagra' 

However, in 2013 the original patent for this medication expired, and that allowed many generic companies to produce this medication legally. Sildenafil is a safe and regulated drug but is a prescription-only medication. This is why when you are ordering Viagra online, you need to complete an online consultation with our clinical team.

Before you understand how Viagra treats ED, you need to know a bit more about how an erection occurs and how it disappears.  

1. Around the penis, there are muscles called as 'smooth' muscles (corpora cavernosa) that are normally contractedto stop the blood flow to the penis, keeping it flaccid.

2. When you are sexually aroused, cGMP (a messenger) causes corpora cavernosa to relax, allowing the blood to flow into the cavernosal arteries.

3. While blood rushes into the penis, the veins that drain blood from the penis are compressed. The blood is trapped in the penis, thus causing an erection.

4. When you are turned off sexually, an enzyme called PDE-5 is released that causes the smooth muscles to contract again, and thus the erection disappears.

If you are suffering from ED, the muscles around the penis will stay in the compressed position, not allowing the blood to reach the penis. Hence, you fail to get an erection. Viagra contains sildenafil, which is a?PDE-5 inhibitor. It works by suppressing the enzyme, relaxes the muscles around the penis, and thus this allows the blood to flow, enhancing erections.

 

Sildenafil helps in achieving an erection. If it is not effective, it could mean that you were not sexually aroused, or had a large meal which delays the absorption of the drug into the body. Viagra sildenafil is most effective when taken on an empty stomach or after a light meal.  

Mental inhibitions and other external environmental factors could be another reason for not having a full erection after taking Viagra sildenafil.

Earlier, buying prescription-only medicines was a lengthy process. You had to visit your GP, discuss your ED condition, get a prescription for erectile dysfunction medicines, and visit a pharmacy to buy the medicines. Moreover, having face-to-face discussions with the doctor and the pharmacist could be an embarrassing experience. 

Fromnow you can purchase Viagra online atMedsNow following an online consultation with our clinic. The clinicians will evaluate your suitability through an online questionnaire, and depending on your condition, a prescription will be issued, which will allow you to order the medicines.

Although the lowest Viagra Sildenafil dose is 25mg, and the highest is 100mg, the most commonly prescribed dosage is 50mgYour doctor will decide the right dosage after assessing your ED condition. The effect of Viagra kicks in 30 to 60 minutes after taking it, and it can last for 4 hours or more. For Viagra to be effective, sexual arousal is required.  

For Viagra to work at its best, avoid eating large meals, high-fat meals, drinking grapefruit juice and excessive alcohol.

If you are taking nicorandil or nitrates, such as isosorbide mononitrate tablets or GTN spray to treat angina, you are not suitable candidate for ED treatment.The combination of these medications can reduce arterial pressure. The effect can be dangerous.

If you are taking alpha-blockers (such as tamsulosin or doxazosin), there should be a gap of at least 6 hours between taking those medications and taking Viagra.

It typically takes 30 to 60 mins for Viagra to work. If you've eaten a high-fat meal, it may take 60 mins for Viagra to take effect. Take Viagra one hour before you expect to have sex on a relatively empty stomach for best results.

The effect of Viagra?can last for up to 4hrs or moreDon't take more than one tablet within 24hrs.

All ED drugs work in a similar way. They also have similar side effects. Although Viagra was the first drug to be widely prescribed, there are other alternatives as well. They are:

  • Tadalafil(Generic Cialis)

  • Cialis(tadalafil)

  • Vardenafil(Generic Levitra)

  • Levitra(vardenafil)

  • Spedra(avanafil)

Other ED treatments include injections into the penis, topical applications, penis pumps, surgery, and counselling.
