Viagra: legends and facts

Viagra: legends and facts

How many different myths and legends exist around Viagra. In our article we will try to debunk the myths about the drug for potency, explain what it is and how not to get into trouble when taking it. Let’s find out why the drug has such popularity on the pharmaceutical market and received the Nobel Prize.

A brief history of the drug

The history of the drug began in the Pfizer lab. Initially, they tried to create a drug for heart disease, but by chance, it turned out to have a more proper purpose.

During the clinical trial phase, it turned out that the drug had no effect on diseased hearts. Another feature noticed was an increase in sexual energy in men. They even refused to give the drug, which was given to them for experimental purposes. After the sensational experiment, the company did not hesitate to put the drug on the assembly line. The new drug for erectile dysfunction became known all over the world. Immediately there was a lot of speculation and speculation that became legends about Viagra.

Legend #1- Want intimacy with a man? Slip him some Viagra!

Naturally – this is a lie. To understand this, you need to understand how the active ingredient of the drug works. Sildenafil is the active ingredient that will increase the flow of blood to the penis, as well as increase the duration of an erection. The pill is not capable of causing arousal, but it will bring back the highlights of your sexual life. So slipping Viagra into someone at a party is not a good idea. If your intentions for the drug are pure, however, the effect will take effect within one hour, depending on whether or not you have taken the pill.

Legend #2 – Viagra is equally good for everyone

No, it is not. If you are healthy, the drug will not have any positive effect on you. The drug can only have the right effect on a person with impotence or erectile dysfunction. It is important to understand that if you have a serious heart or vascular disease, such as thrombophlebitis or atherosclerosis, you will not get the expected effects. This also applies to those people who have testosterone deficiency. By mixing Viagra with alcohol you also won’t increase the effect, but you will get the lack of it.

Legend #3 – Viagra is only needed for elderly people with obvious impotence

The legend is far from the truth, because the drug is allowed to be taken by people over 18 years of age. It is worth thinking about taking the drug even in case of small abnormalities. For example, you are immediately aroused without any problems, but your penis quickly loses firmness.

Legend #4- Continuous taking Viagra will restore your sexuality

This is a myth. Viagra, along with coffee, tea or a cold shower, can only be a wake-up call, a dope or a stimulant. Continuous use will certainly help you cope with problems, but if you stop taking the pills, the problems will return. If you want to take Viagra more often, you should ask your doctor.

Legend #5 – Viagra is useless for women

It’s hard to say whether it’s true or not. The company itself positions the pills as exclusively for men. Reliable studies on this subject have not been conducted, and therefore we can only speculate that it will stimulate the blood flow to the pelvic organs. But it is better not to cheat and to look for similar products for women, of which there are a lot on the pharmaceutical market.

Legend #6 – If it doesn’t help, you need to take two pills at once.

This is totally wrong and dangerous. Never do that. It will not give you the claimed unforgettable effect, but it can send you to the hospital. It should be noted that you are not allowed to take the next dose of the drug within a day. Overuse of the drug will damage your kidneys, heart, respiratory system and stomach. It’s not a good idea to take Viagra while:

  • Use of nitrogen donators. They are used in sports during training, you should not mix Viagra with them.
  • Taking steroids. Steroid drugs enhance the active ingredient of Viagra, so you should reduce the dose or not mix them with each other.
  • Drinking alcoholic beverages. In fact, you can, but in small quantities. If you drink a glass of wine, nothing will happen to you, but if you drink a bottle of wine, it will have serious consequences.
  • High blood pressure or taking blood pressure medication on a regular basis.

Myth #7- If the problem with your sex life is in your head, then Viagra can handle that too

Not quite, really. If your sexual impotence is caused by mental problems, then Viagra is unlikely to help you. Fight stress and mental disorders, and the drug will help you get off to a quick and easy start. Of course, it can’t cure your head. Viagra is just as powerless if you have problems with your urogenital system or internal vascular walls. In other cases, Viagra can meet your expectations.
