VIAGRA is a medicine used to treat erection difficulties, such
as erectile dysfunction (ED). Since it first became available in 1998, VIAGRA
has helped more than 16 million men around the world improve their sex lives.
Amazingly, 9 tablets are dispensed every second worldwide. And no other
therapy for ED has been studied as much or has the same amount of real-world
experience as VIAGRA since its launch. It’s no wonder more than 600,000
doctors have chosen VIAGRA for their patients with ED.
Fact is, when taken correctly, VIAGRA works for most men. Studies show
that it works for up to 4 out of 5 men (versus 1 out of 4 on sugar pill).
VIAGRA improves erections in most men no matter how long they have had
ED, what caused it, how often they have it, or how old they are. And VIAGRA
has been proven to work in clinical studies of thousands of men.
VIAGRA works by increasing blood flow to the penis. It is not a hormone
or an aphrodisiac. Once you take it, VIAGRA can work in as quickly as
30 minutes. VIAGRA works for at least 4 hours so you can set your own
pace. And, in most patients, VIAGRA can be taken as often as once a day.

How to take this medication
Viagra is taken by mouth as needed between four hours and one-half hour
before sexual activity (about one hour before is most effective). Take
only as directed, usually once daily as needed. Sildenafil works along
with sexual stimulation to help achieve an erection.

might occur. If these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor promptly.
Before using Viagra, tell your doctor your medical history, including
any allergies (especially drug allergies), any penis conditions such as
fibrosis/scarring, history of painful/prolonged erection (priapism), sickle
cell anemia, blood system cancers (such as leukemia or myeloma), or Peyronie's
disease, eye problems (retina diseases). kidney or liver disease, bleeding
disorders or active stomach ulcers, heart diseases, stroke or severe high
or low blood pressure. Limit alcohol intake, as it may aggravate side
effects of this drug. To avoid dizziness and lightheadedness when rising
from a seated or lying position, get up slowly. The elderly may be more
sensitive to the side effects of this drug, therefore caution is advised
in this group.
Tell your doctor of all nonprescription and prescription medication you
may use, especially any nitrate medications (e.g., nitroglycerin, isosorbide
dinitrate), nitroprusside (any "nitric oxide donor" medicines),
cimetidine, erythromycin, azole antifungals (e.g., itraconazole, ketoconazole),
mibefradil, rifamycins (e.g., rifampin) or high blood pressure medicines.
