Is Viagra safe?

Even though men act reckless in most cases during their daily lives, there is at least one situation when absolutely all of us turn super-serious and precautious. As you might have already guessed, this is when our penises are at risk. Thus, it’s only natural that most of us want to be 100% sure about ED meds before taking them. Tonight we will start by assessing the risks of taking the most famous erectile dysfunction medication of all times – Viagra.

Is Viagra safe? Unfortunately, at this very moment it’s impossible to answer this question positively and with full confidence. There are a number of adverse effects that this ED medication causes and there’s virtually no way you can take it 100% risk-free. On the other hand, it’s known that the vast majority of reported adverse effects were observed in people who took more Viagra than they were advised to or took it more frequently than recommended. Other patients were suffering from health conditions that made side effects of Sildenafil more likely to occur. Thus, you can increase your chances of enjoying sex with Viagra without any unpleasant side effects by following these two simple guidelines:

1) Consult with your healthcare provider prior to starting treatment with Viagra. Get all necessary tests done in order to see if Viagra is the best option for you or if you should consider some other medicine.

2) Always take Viagra according to doctor’s prescription. Under no circumstances should you take more than 100mg of Sildenafil in under 24 hours.

That’s very simple to follow the two principles above and they reduce your risks to negligible levels.

But what are the side effects that people taking Viagra fear so much? In fact, there are many of them but only a few are regarded as really dangerous for your health and life. They have occurred in an extremely small number of cases and included heart attack or arrhythmia, stroke, sudden hearing loss and priapism. Thus, if you feel irregular heartbeat, chest pain or have an erection that lasts for more than 4 hours after taking Viagra, call the doctor for help immediately.

Less severe (but, unfortunately, more common) side effects of Viagra include: flushing, dyspepsia, minor vision impairments, headache and nasal congestion.

It’s important to remember that some substances may interact with Sildenafil making its concentration in your system increase over time. This, consequently, increases the risk of suffering from various side effects. Don’t take Viagra together with erythromycin and cimetidine, don’t wash it down with grapefruit juice or eat grapefruits when you are taking Viagra. And, of course, never take Viagra along with other ED medications unless advised to do so by your doctor. Only a qualified healthcare provider will be able to calculate a safe dose of mixed ED meds for you.

Is Viagra safe when you are taking it in full accordance with all of the above rules and with your doctor’s recommendations? Indeed, it is – as safe as other medications or, perhaps, even safer. But is it safe when you are not following the rules? No, it’s definitely not. Please, don’t put your health at risk. Play by the rules and enjoy both perfect sex and perfectly healthy life!
