How does Viagra work?

Viagra uses an active ingredient called Sildenafil to widen and relax the arteries in your penis, allowing more blood to flow through upon arousal. As more blood flows in and less flows out, the penis grows to an erect state and remains erect for longer. It is important to note that an erection can only form in response to previous sexual arousal. Viagra therefore supports an erection, but does not automate it.

Although the treatment can remain in your system for up to 4-5 hours, your erection will remain for only a fraction of that time. After the climax, your penis will return to a flaccid state until the next time you become aroused within the 4-5 hour timeframe. It may reduce the recovery time needed after having sex and allow you to be intimate with your partner for longer and more often.

Dosage information

Viagra is available in three dosages – 25mg, 50mg and 100mg. Each of these treatments has undergone clinical studies to prove its effectiveness in users. During these studies over 60% of patients taking the 25mg dose reported improved erections, over 70% taking the 50mg experienced a positive outcome, while 85% taking the 100mg dose reported that Viagra had helped them to achieve a better erection.

The lowest dosage (25mg) is recommended for men aged 65 and above and those with serious liver or kidney problems. If you have never used Viagra before your doctor may start you off with the lowest dosage. Patients taking protease inhibitors, e.g. to treat HIV, may also be prescribed a low dose.

You can choose to order a 50mg or 100mg tablet if you are aged below 65, or if your body tolerates the lowest dosage and you want to improve results next time around. A 121 Doctor may only prescribe the 100mg tablet to patients who they feel can benefit from treatment without endangering their health.

How to take Viagra

Swallow a tablet with a glass of water at least 30 minutes before you intend to have sex. You should not take more than one tablet every 24 hours and always stick to the dosage prescribed to you by the doctor.

Please note that meals high in fat can block the Viagra compound from functioning properly; to achieve the best possible results you should always avoid eating large fatty meals before using treatment or if unavoidable then wait for a longer period after taking your tablet. You should also avoid drinking large quantities of alcohol as alcohol can inhibit an erection and reduce the effects of the medication.

If you have recently recovered from a heart attack or stroke, please do not use Viagra. The following conditions may also prevent you from obtaining treatment:

  • Severe heart disorder
  • Low blood pressure
  • Decreased liver function
  • Galactose intolerance
  • Lapp lactase deficiency
  • Glucose-galactose malabsorption

As always, ensure you let our doctors know of any conditions which you have had in the past or currently have which may interfere with taking erectile dysfunction treatment.

Are there side effects?

Like all prescription medications, Viagra affects people in different ways. The most widely reported problem when using this medication are headaches, which can occur for 1 in 10 users. The following Viagra side effects are known to affect between 1-10% of users:

  • Dizziness
  • Indigestion
  • Facial flushing
  • Nasal congestion
  • Visual disturbances, such as blurred vision, blue tinge to vision

The following side effects may affect between 1 in 100 and 1 in 1000 people:

  • Nausea
  • Dry mouth
  • Sleepiness or fatigue
  • Chest and muscle pain
  • Sensation of spinning and/or tinnitus
  • Palpitations of the heart and increased heart rate

The likelihood of experiencing any side effects not mentioned in the lists above is significantly low. The following side effects may occur for only 1 in every 1000 users:

  • Fainting
  • Priapism
  • Nosebleeds
  • Abnormal heartbeats
  • Sudden decrease or loss of hearing
  • Increased or decreased blood pressure

The side effects listed above may not include all of the side effects reported by Pfizer, Viagra's manufacturer. Each medication comes with a patient leaflet that explains in greater depth the risk of side effects and what precautions to take to best avoid them. For added peace of mind, you should consult your doctor to make absolutely sure you are suitable to use your chosen prescription medication.

A Viagra tablet should not be taken with any form of nitrate medication, as this can cause blood pressure to drop below normal. Side effects are also caused if nitrate medication is used during treatment. A hazardous drop in blood pressure leading to dizziness or fainting can also occur in users who are taking alpha-blocker medicines.

Ordering Viagra online

You can place an order at 121doc from the comfort of your own home, should you find it inconvenient or too embarrassing to see your doctor. After selecting a treatment you will be asked to fill out the 121doc medical consultation, and then enter your billing and delivery address, and finally your payment details. Once you have completed these three straightforward steps you will receive your order confirmation by email, or SMS if you like. None of our treatments are dispensed without a patient filling out a consultation which is reviewed by one of our doctors to ensure that you are suitable for the medication that you're seeking.

The prices of the Viagra treatments displayed include a doctor's consultation fee, pharmacy dispensing fee, and overnight delivery. 121doc accepts payment by all major credit cards.

We are regulated by the MHRA as well as the Care Quality Commission. Our doctors are fully GMC registered and have years of experience in prescribing medical treatment online. Please note that the information that you provide us remains totally confidential and will be shared with no other parties.

Preventing Viagra side effects

As well as reading the patient leaflet and consulting your doctor you can also follow these safety measures below to best ensure against potential side effects.

  • Do not exceed the recommended daily dosage.
  • If you feel dizzy or lightheaded make sure you lie down until the symptoms pass.
  • Cease treatment if you experience any sudden decrease or loss of vision.
  • If your erection lasts longer than four hours (priapism), consult your doctor immediately.
  • Swallowing a tablet with grapefruit juice may cause a modest increase in the blood level of sildenafil, which in turn, may increase the chance of experiencing side effects.

Many patients experience some form of side effect the first time they use this treatment but find the symptoms decrease over time as their body becomes accustomed to the drug.

Ordering and delivery Process

If you order Viagra today you may receive your treatment the very next day via Royal Mail. Treatment can be delivered to any postal location of your choice, including your home, workplace or hotel room.

To ensure discretion each treatment is delivered in a blank envelope with no reference to 121doc.

Our friendly customer service team is just a phone call or click away should you have a query about ordering treatment from 121doc, or the status of your order after dispatch.
