You will also be asked a detailed past medical and surgical history as you may have other medical conditions which may be contributing to your erectile dysfunction. It is important to tell your GP about other symptoms such as pain, premature ejaculation (uncontrolled ejaculation before or immediately after penetration) or symptoms of prostatic obstruction because they are often associated with erectile dsyfunction.
But you'll have to have a consultation with the pharmacist to make sure it's safe for you to take it. .
Physicians should consider whether their patients with underlying NAION risk factors could be adversely affected by use of PDE5 inhibitors. Individuals who have already experienced NAION are at increased risk of NAION recurrence. Therefore, PDE5 inhibitors, including VIAGRA, should be used with caution in these patients and only when the anticipated benefits outweigh the risks. Individuals with “crowded” optic disc are also considered at greater risk for NAION compared to the general population, however, evidence is insufficient to support screening of prospective users of PDE5 inhibitors, including VIAGRA, for this uncommon condition.
If Viagra doesn’t work for you, it may be due to a variety of factors, including the following:
Due to the fact that ED and CVD share many of the same risk factors, it is not surprising that there is a high incidence of ED in men who present with CVD. A study by Montorsi et al found that ED was present in roughly 50% of patients with acute chest pain and confirmed CAD on angiography.21
You can get sildenafil on the NHS if you have erectile dysfunction or pulmonary hypertension.
The first things doctors usually prescribe to men with erectile dysfunction are pills like:
Most men will experience some form of impotence in their lifetime, and the likelihood of developing symptoms increases with age and declining health.
The most common reasons to use sildenafil in the present study were to increase erectile sensation and penile rigidity. Similar reasons were reported in a study conducted in Argentina in which a desire to increase penile rigidity, coital frequency, erection duration and to prevent sexual failure were the common reasons for PDE5Is use (6).
Your GP will take a detailed sexual history to determine why your erections are failing and under what circumstances you are having sexual difficulties. You will also be asked about lifestyle factors (e.g. your job, work pressures, smoking habits, exercise, diet, alcohol intake and drug consumption). It is also normal to ask about your sex drive (libido), whether you still get night-time or early-morning erections and whether your partner is also concerned about your difficulties and whether or not your relationship is being affected.

Based on the pharmacokinetic profile of a single 100 mg oral dose given to healthy normal volunteers, the plasma levels of sildenafil at 24 hours post dose are approximately 2 ng/mL (compared to peak plasma levels of approximately 440 ng/mL). In the following patients: age > 65 years, hepatic impairment (e.g., cirrhosis), severe renal impairment (e.g., creatinine clearance < 30 mL/min), and concomitant use of erythromycin or strong CYP3A4 inhibitors, plasma levels of sildenafil at 24 hours post dose have been found to be 3 to 8 times higher than those seen in healthy volunteers. Although plasma levels of sildenafil at 24 hours post dose are much lower than at peak concentration, it is unknown whether nitrates can be safely co-administered at this time point [see CONTRAINDICATIONS].
Medications may include drugs to manage underlying health conditions such as diabetes, high blood cholesterol, or kidney diseases in addition to medications that specifically target erectile dysfunction. Sildenafil Tadalafil Vardenafil Avanafil Alprostadil (injectable drug or a suppository)
VIAGRA (50 mg) did not potentiate the increase in bleeding time caused by aspirin (150 mg).
Some men familiar with Viagra, having used it before successfully, want to stick with what works. They trust it, and the brain is the largest and most important sex organ after all; psychology can be a potent tool in combating ED.
Co-administration of ritonavir, a strong CYP3A4 inhibitor, greatly increased the systemic exposure of sildenafil (11-fold increase in AUC). It is therefore recommended not to exceed a maximum single dose of 25 mg of VIAGRA in a 48 hour period [see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION, WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS, CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY].
There are many benefits associated with green tea. Catechins present in green tea are helpful to burn belly fat. They also boost sexual function by increasing blood flow to the penis. Catechins fight with free radicals and repair the damaged blood vessels and cause blood vessels to release nitric oxide with act as a vasodilator and improves the blood flow. More blood flow to the penis leads to more sexual excitement.
