  • Who Can and Who Can’t Take Viagra Pills?

    First and foremost, Sildenafil Citrate being the active component of Revatio and Viagra pills is FDA confirmed substance. Few remarks should be mentioned here – Sildenafil Citrate was initially approved for treating pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Later after few clinical trials the substance was confirmed for the therapy of erectile dysfunction. Originally Sildenafil was invented by British scientists and then the patent was licensed by the U.S.-based company Pfizer and titled as Viagra.

    Who Can and Who Can’t Take Viagra Pills

    To learn more about the action of Sildenafil in your body watch the educational video:

    Despite two approved indications Viagra is usually assigned to help men who suffer from problems with erectile disorder. The medication really helps to fix the problem of weak or absent erection with proper sexual stimulation. That is why many men consider Viagra as the first choice drug for erectile disorder. The pill turns out to be quite effective for 98 patients out of 100. However, not all men with erectile disorder can actually use Viagra due to certain regulations and precautions.

    Who can use Viagra without any regulations?

    Most men aged from 18 to 65 years old can use Viagra in its recommended dose – 50mg or 100mg per 24 hrs. If you are healthy and a doctor didn’t reduce your dose of Viagra, it will be normal to take one 100mg pill or two 50mg pills of this medication 30 minutes before having a sexual intercourse. Such dose is good enough to help you sustain a stiff erection for penetration and achieving orgasm.

    Not only healthy people but men with certain medical conditions are allowed to use Viagra pills in standard dose. There are 2 groups with such conditions:

    - Depression and similar depressive disorder that impact on sexual function of men;
    – Diabetes of II type.

    In the first group men may have sexual disorder with weak erection because of the use of antidepressants and/or symptoms of depressive conditions. The study of 2003 held in the U.S. National Institutes of Health confirmed the results of the same research that was conducted in 1999. The results proved that men from this group can use safely Viagra pills in 50m or 100mg doses.

    Men from the second group who suffer from diabetes II type also can use Viagra. Sildenafil doesn’t reduce effectiveness of any diabetes medications. In fact, the other research group from Long Island Jewish Medical Centre in New Hyde Park led by Dr. Rifka Schulman proved that Viagra can improve the insulin sensitivity in the group of so-called “pre-diabetics” –people who currently have the mild form of diabetes II type or overweight men who have no this disease but still are in the risk group.

    The important notice: if you have erectile disorder along with depression or diabetes II type, you may still need to consult a doctor before taking Viagra pills.

    Who must use Viagra in reduced doses?

    There is also the group of men who can use Viagra only in reduced dose of 25mg. Such dose of Sildenafil Citrate is sufficient enough to have a finished sexual intercourse with the stable erection for 1-2 hours. The main difference is that you should take this dose at least 1 hour before sexual activity. This dose can’t be used on the regular basis – take one Viagra 25mg pill only when you actually need. The limited amount of Sildenafil Citrate is assigned only when a person can’t have a full dose of Viagra without any negative consequences.

    There are certain conditions that may influence on doctor’s decision to reduce the dose of Viagra:

    - heart problems in the past like a heart attack, failure or stroke;
    – angina, irregular heartbeat , chest ache, narrowed aortic valve;
    – experience of the heart surgery within the last six months;
    – decreased blood pressure or extremely high blood pressure that can be controlled with medications;
    – the deformed penis shape or hereditary penis disorders;
    – experience of priapism (painful erection that lasts more than 4 hrs) in the past;
    – problems with your blood cells like sickle cell;
    – leukemia , anemia, multiple myeloma;
    – retinitis pigmentosa (that is a quite rare genetic eye disease);
    – experience of the severe vision loss in the pass (including the condition NAION);
    – any bleeding problem;
    – current or past stomach ulcer;
    – liver/kidney problems or being on kidney dialysis.

    Who can’t use Viagra pills?

    When it comes to warnings prohibiting to use Viagra pills usually it is much simpler to define who can’t take this ED pill than to say precisely who can use this medications in reduced doses.

    First of all, who can NOT use Viagra under any circumstance:

    - women of any age (especially pregnant ladies) – certain studies proved the efficacy of Viagra for females but the FDA approved the other preparation for boosting sexual libido in women;
    – male children or teenagers younger than 18 years old.

    To get the full picture who can’t use Viagra listen to the expert in the following video:
