What is Viagra?

Viagra is a prescriptionh medication for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction occurs when the stiffness of the penis is insufficient or doesn't last long enough to have satisfactory sex.

Viagra/Sildenafil (the active ingredient) indirectly relaxes the blood vessels in the penis. This makes it easier for the blood to flow into the penis when you get sexually excited, making it easier for you to get an erection. When using Sildenafil, you only get an erection when sexually excited. There is no spontaneous erection when swallowing Viagra.


Viagra is not a hormone preparation, but a substance that promotes blood circulation to the penis. There may be medical objections to the use of Viagra. At the start of the ordering process, there will be an online doctor's appointment. Besides this online consultation, it is also good to read the package insert carefully.

When should you avoid taking Viagra?

Do not take this erection pill if you are taking medication that contains nitrates or releases nitrogen monoxide, such as amyl nitrite (poppers). This medication is often prescribed to relieve symptoms of angina pectoris (chest pain). Sildenafil can cause a significant increase in the effects of this type of medication. Tell your doctor you are taking these drugs. If you are not sure, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
