Viagra is not a recreational drug

Posted in Erectile Dysfunction 08 Mar, 2011

Doctors are concerned that far too many men treat Viagra as though it was a recreational drug; a magic pill that will instantly give them a fantastic sex life.

This perception of what the drug can do is worrying. Not to mention potentially dangerous. Viagra is a prescription medication that is intended to treat erectile dysfunction. It helps to open up blood vessels leading to the penis and therefore increases a man’s ability to obtain an erection. It does not, in itself, induce arousal or heighten sexual pleasure. It should only be viewed as a serious treatment.

Men need to be medically checked before taking Viagra. This means having a registered doctor ensure that high blood pressure or heart conditions are not present.

Most worrying of all is ‘secstacy’: the combination of Viagra with the illegal street drug Ecstasy. Doctors say the combination is potentially fatal.

If you are suffering from erectile dysfunction then Viagra can help you. Otherwise there is no need to take the drug. If your sex life needs a boost then there are many other ways in which you can reinvigorate this aspect of your health!
