Pros and cons of Viagra

ViagraThe problems with sexual potency take the primary place among all the health problems of the men. The frequency gets only higher with age. According to the WHO statistics, 5% of men aged 40-50 and 25% of men aged 60-70 suffer from the chronic erectile dysfunction. The cases of weak erection have been indicated by 50% of men aged 40-70. For many years, the treatment of erectile dysfunction has been a difficult task, demanding operative treatment in some cases. The situation changed as soon as the first inhibitor Sildenafil citrate was discovered. Created in 1998 by Pfizer Company, Viagra with Sildenafil as the main active component made an evolution in the erectile dysfunction treatment. Just one pill, taken an hour before planned sex, allowed the men, who suffered from the problem, enjoying sex as they used to do. Besides, the important advantage of the medicine is that it did not provoke spontaneous erection. The pill came to effect only after the sexual stimulation. Thus, it allowed plenty of men returning their sexual life and saved many families from the divorce caused by the sexual problems.

In the 21st century, the other new inhibitors have been discovered (Levitra and Cialis). They have a more prolonged effect, faster action, and fewer side effects. However, smart advertising has made Viagra the most well-known medicine for improvement of the potency, which is taken by men, who suffer from the erectile dysfunction, and healthy people, who want to make an impression and become the best lover.

Despite such popularity among the males, before the consumption, it is required to think that Viagra is not an aphrodisiac, but a medicine. That’s why before taking it, think over all the pros and cons.

Talking about the advantages of this medicine, it is possible to mention the good knowledge base. After Sildenafil has been discovered, plenty of other researches have been made. They have shown the efficiency of the medicine, described all the possible side actions after the consumption, and learned its interaction with the other drugs.

The greatest advantage of Viagra is its effectiveness. During the comparative research of all the modern methods of potency improvement (Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis) it was found out that the patients with the erectile dysfunction noticed positive effect from all the medicines compared, but the efficiency of Viagra was 4% higher than the one of Levitra and 3% higher than the one of Cialis.

As for the disadvantages of Viagra, we can mention the fact that it should be consumed on an empty stomach. The foods in the stomach might lower the effectiveness disturbing the process of absorption. Levitra is less dependable on this condition. It is only forbidden to use it together with fatty foods. Cialis does not have this disadvantage at all, which allows taking it even after meals without lowering the effectiveness. Another negative moment of Viagra (compared to Levitra or Cialis) is that it cannot be used with alcohol because it leads to the lowering of arterial pressure. When you take Levitra/Cialis, it is possible to drink alcohol in little doses. That’s why if you are planning an intercourse preceded by the romantic dinner with your beloved, it is better to choose Cialis or Levitra.

If you analyze all the pros and cons of Viagra consumption, you will notice that the number of side effects is much greater compared to Cialis and Levitra. Viagra provokes side effects connected with the vascular system (such as hypotension, Myocardia, arrhythmia, etc.), the nervous system (dizziness, headaches), the eyesight (problems with color perception, blurred vision, the increase of pressure, photophobia) more often than all the rest of PDE-5 inhibitors.

Another drawback is a considerably short time of action (up to 5 hours). At the same time, the Cialis duration totals 36 hours. It is much more comfortable because your sexual life gets more spontaneous – anytime during 36 hours, a man is ready for the good intercourse and has no need to worry, whether he has enough time to consume a pill.
