What is Viagra?

What is Viagra?

Viagra is a medication prescribed from males experiencing an erectile dysfunction (ED). An erectile dysfunction is when not enough blood flows through the male sex organ during a sexual encounter. This is often caused by a physical disease, injury, or can be side effects from another drug. This concern affects about 30 million men in the United States.

Viagra increases the blood flow in the male sex organ to allow an erection to last long enough for a sexual encounter. Individual results may vary, but this drug usually takes effect within 30-60 minutes while sexually stimulated. This drug can be taken up to 4 hours before sexual activity, however medical attention is needed if an erection lasts longer than 4 hours as long-term injury may result in extreme adverse effects.
