Viagra: "The Magic Blue Pills" for Erectile Dysfunction? 


Generic Name Sildenafil

Brand Name: Viagra 

VIAGRA 100 MG TABLETHow does Viagra work for erectile dysfunction? 

Viagra belongs to a group of medicines that actually delays the enzymes referred to as phosphodiesterases from working too quickly.  The penis is one of the areas of the body in which these enzymes work. Viagra is used to treat men with erectile dysfunction or what is frequently referred to as sexual impotence. 


By controlling this enzyme, Viagra helps maintain an erection that is produced when the penis is stimulated.  Without stimulation of the penis such as occurs during sexual intercourse, erection will not occur or be maintained. 

Has Viagra ever been used for anything besides erectile dysfunction? 

Viagra has been used to treat the symptoms of pulmonary arterial hypertension.  This is a form of high blood pressure that occurs in the main artery that carries blood from the right side of the heart (the ventricle) to the lungs.  When the smaller blood vessels become blocked somewhat or are resistant to blood flow, the right ventricle has to work harder to pump enough blood through to the lungs.  Viagra helps by increasing the blood flow to the lungs and subsequently reducing the burden or work load of the heart. 

In what form is Viagra available? 

This medicine to help with male impotence is only available with your doctor's prescription in the following dosage form: 

Oral: Tablets (US)
