Viagra (Sildenafil)

Sildenafil citrate is a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. It was originally hoped to be used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension. Patented in 1996 and released in 1998 the drug was developed by a group of pharmaceutical chemists working at Pfizer laboratories in England. The little blue pill has become the gold standard in the treatment of impotence and a big topic for 'stand up' comedians.

How long till Viagra starts to work?

As with any drug, each person may experience different absorption times. The directions suggest to take it one hour before relations, however that is conservative on the long end because the maker doesn't want to state a shorter time because that may not be the case for very few men. My experience is 10 minutes, but it will intensify in 20 minutes. You asked, "start" to work and that is 10 minutes. It also has a positive mental effect, in that you are confident it will work, therefore you already think it is. If you are going to eat a meal, take it before that to ensure it is absorbed first. You can drink alcohol, but not to excess. I know of no drug conflict, but drinking will diminish it's effect, just as drinking and not taking it would.

Additionally, it is not necessary to take the entire pill. My experience is that only a small portion of a 1mg pill will work effectively; that being 1/6 of a pill. I break it in half, then cut it into 3rds. Hold over a piece of paper, because it will leave the inside "dust", which you can recover from the paper. Inside the outer coating is like chalk. I know that sound small and it is, but it does work, at least for me. If it doesn't, try another piece. There's nothing wrong with taking more, but I see no need to take more than you need and it is economical as well. You can't get more than fully erect, so why waste it?

The problem with taking more, such as even half a pill (which I would never do) is that if sex does not occur, you will certainly wish it would and that can be frustrating.

You will not necessarily be physically be aware when it is working unless you have some kind of mental or physically stimulation. This can consist of only taking a leak and touching yourself or concentrating on having sex. When you are exposed to either or both of these, you will know that it is working and expect an erection within 30 seconds and you will stay that way until you orgasm or the stimulation is interrupted or ends. However after the suggested hour, you definitely will get an erection with the slightest touch. You probably won't want to go 4 hours or more with an erection coming and going, so plan carefully or you might have to excuse yourself for a few minutes to take care of that. Major distractions will negate it's effectiveness and render it useless and unnoticeable. An example of this would be an argument or an emergency. It does not force and erection on its own, but easily allows one.

Side effects are mild, but many men, including myself have reported a light flushing in the face, but I doubt noticeable. This is a very mild warming of the cheeks for the most part. It does raise the heart beat and depending on your build, you may be the only one to notice this, as the heart rate increases when aroused anyway, but it can be distinct. However that can be a good thing, because it tells you it is working. The flushing subsides relatively quickly and after you take it a few times, you don't think much about it. The heart rate however persists, yet decreases over time.

Another effect, maybe not a side effect, is that you may mentally want to have sex more under its influence, simply because YOU know you have taken it and YOU know why and expect to, and you are anticipating sex.

There are other prescription alternatives, but I have tried only one; Levitra. This pill is round and smaller and a few dollars more expensive, at about $15 per pill. The advantage to this small wonder is that I have not experienced any side effects and it works as fast and the lasting effects are much longer, without the relatively immediate desire to have sex, but spread over a longer time. It works just as well, but you don't mentally feel like you must have sex right now, unless you get that mental and physical stimulation as mentioned above. In that case, you will be ready. This more calm approach might be because I know it will last longer and I don't need to be in that 4 hour window that Viagra is said to work.

Another effect of Levitra is it's like a battery. It is not limited to one encounter or 4 hours. If you have sex tonight, you might also tomorrow morning. This is good for three reasons. If you don't have sex tonight, you can still count on it working in the morning. Or, if you have sex tonight, you can also have sex in the morning. Or, if you have sex tonight, you can have sex again tonight. It is possible to begin again in 10 or so minutes after the first orgasm. Obviously, the second time will take longer to achieve orgasm, but it can be very rewarding. In contrast, Viagra is like a match; it only works once.

What happens if women take Viagra?

Yes, Women can use Viagra, though it works completely differently than men. Of course there is nothing there to "erect", so it works on the genitals: Clitoris, Labia...etc. It does not make them swell up, in fact it makes them hyper sensitive, so that during sex, the orgasm will arrive sooner than expected and will happen multiple times.

What happens when you stop using Viagra?

Why? there are number of younger men that take V. d/t ED that is psycological by nature, that is, there is nothing wrong with your blood circulation, but you simply lack experience and confidence. After taking V. for some time and having strong erection you may gain confidence and can dump the pills.

If u indeed have circulatory problems, then - yes, u'll not have hard erections.

there are cheaper pills that will provide you with good erection and spare you from side effects of V., plus your erections appear only in the right moment - when u r sexually stimulated

Does Viagra work in women?

To understand the answer here you must first understand that in men Viagra does not increase sexual desire (i.e. libido), it only helps in the physiological process that causes an erection to occur.  Viagra does cause blood vessels to dilate, which is the way in which a penis gets erect.  

Viagra will do the same thing in women (dilate blood vessels), but women have no penis to get erect.  

So the answer to your question is "yes" Viagra will dilate blood vessels in women, but "no" it will not affect sexual desire.  The only sexual thing Viagra might do in a woman is cause a clitoral erection.  

You should speak with your physician before trying any prescription medication such as Viagra.
