Viagra: know the facts behind that little blue pill

Your health care provider gave you a prescription for the blue pill, and you are not in a hurry to try it because of all the stories you have heard about unending erections or dangerous side effects.

Do you think what you heard is true? Want to know all about Viagra and how it performs both in and out of the bedroom?

According to expert Cleveland Clinic Urologist Dr. Drogo Montague, along with all of the hype you hear about Viagra there are also a few falsehoods that seem to follow that little blue pill around.

Viagra Facts:

It won’t hurt your heart

  • Taken alone, Viagra won’t hurt your heart. But don’t take it if you’re already taking nitrates for heart health. It was originally intended to treat chest pain. Like nitrates, it helps dilate blood vessels constricted by coronary artery disease. But it also similarly lowers blood pressure. If you take the two medications together, your blood pressure could drop too low, putting you at risk for a heart attack.

You will not damage your eyes by taking Viagra

  • Taking Viagra to enhance your bedroom performance won’t have a bad impact on your eyes.  However, once in a while it could make everything seem a little blue, especially if you take the maximum 100 mg dose.

Viagra won’t cause hours-long erections

  • You won’t have a prolonged erection if you are taking only Viagra by itselfBut, it can happen if you’re also getting penile injection therapy. Combining the treatments has a cumulative effect; penile injection therapy makes your erections hard, and adding Viagra makes them harder and even more long-lasting. So, stay on the safe side and don’t pair them

Viagra makes your penis harder for penetrative sex. But what you might not know is that it can save your penis from bending and scarring if you start taking it early enough.

If you’re having erectile dysfunction problems, you should feel confident going to your health care provider. It’s a common issue, don’t be embarrassed. 

Please, do not take viagra without consulting your healthcare provider for proper check up to determine that you can take it. Especially, if you are taking other meds for high blood pressure and heart issues.
