Viagra

Viagra® (sildenafil) was the first oral medication to receive FDA approval for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) in 1998.

It truly brought about a revolution in the treatment of erectile dysfunction and has paved the way for many patients and physicians to begin talking about Erectile Dysfunction.

Viagra® comes in doses of 25, 50 and 100mg.  You should not take more than your doctor prescribes and should not take more than one pill daily.  It should be taken on a relatively empty stomach about 1 hour prior to having intercourse and the onset of action may be delayed if you have eaten a fatty meal.  Viagra® may remain effective for up to 4 hours after taking the medication.  Remember, you will need sexual excitement to achieve an erection.

Some possible side effects include temporary blue tint to vision, nasal congestion or headache.
All currently available oral therapy for Erectile Dysfunction belongs to a class of medications called PDE-5 inhibitors and as such, anyone taking nitrates (i.e. nitroglycerin) should not take Viagra®, Levitra®, or Cialis®.

If you have questions about Viagra® or are having trouble with obtaining or maintaining erections, please do not hesitate to contact the Dallas Center for Pelvic Medicine for an appointment to address these issues in a relaxed and dignified atmosphere.
