Viagra (sildenafil) works by increasing blood flow to your penis. It’s a reliable treatment for men who cannot achieve an erection, as well as those unable to maintain an erection. If you’re experiencing erectile dysfunction, this might be the right ED med for you.
So what exactly does Viagra do? This medication works by improving blood flow to your penis when you’re sexually aroused. The active chemical in Viagra, sildenafil citrate, is still used under the name Revatio to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension or elevated blood pressure in the arteries that carry blood from your heart to your lungs.
Viagra is a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor (also called a PDE-5 inhibitor), which means it promotes blood flow to your penis by blocking the effects of the PDE enzyme. Most men who experience sexual arousal after taking this med can achieve and maintain an erection hard enough for sex.
Don’t worry—you won’t get a spontaneous erection just from taking a pill. You have to be sexually aroused after taking these meds to get an erection. And you can take Viagra up to 4 hours before sexual activity.
Viagra is the most popular branded medication on the market to treat erectile dysfunction and has helped many men with ED. Need help figuring out which is the right ED med for you? Schedule an easy online appointment with a member of our medical team right now.
