The Original Viagra – The first ever in market


Viagra Original is the first drug to hit the market in last 30 years for the treatment of ED or impotence. Erectile Dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is a condition characterized by the inability to maintain an erection firm enough for sexual activity. It is one of the common sexual dysfunctions in men of all age groups; under the age 40 experiencing it more.  As per the World Health Organization, over approximately 15% of men, each year are affected by ED.


Viagra is brought into market by the pharmaceutical company Pfizer. It is a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor drug used for the treatment of ED or impotence. Sildenafil citrate is the active ingredient in Viagra. Sildenafil citrate relaxes the smooth muscles present in the wall of blood vessels, increases the flow of blood to the penis, and enhances the erection enough for the sexual activity. Viagra is highly effective and safe. Viagra works effectively if the underlying cause of ED is physical, psychological, or both. Again, in psychological cases, the effectiveness of the drug depends on the severity of the condition. In both cases, it is important to undergo psychological counselling to achieve the best results (along with the standard treatment – Original Viagra Tablet).
Viagra tablet could also be used for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension. It is generally not recommended for use in women and children. But for conditions like pulmonary arterial hypertension in women and in children aged more than 1 year, the treatment with Sildenafil could be considered.

What are the causes of Erectile Dysfunction?

The causes for ED include:
  •  Insufficient blood flow in the penis.
  • Damaged nerves in the penis.
  • Stress or emotional disturbances
  • Smoking
  •  Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Lacking physical activity
  • Chronic health conditions such as atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.

Sometimes, drugs used to treat other health conditions can have a negative impact on erection.

How does Viagra Work?

During sexual activity, nitric oxide that enables the production of cGMP is released into the penis. cGMP is mainly responsible for the blood flow into the penis and for the firm erection of the penis. The longer cGMP enzyme sustains during the sexual activity, the longer will be an erect penis. In men with ED, an enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) destroys cGMP. Sildenafil citrate, the active ingredient of Viagra that belongs to the class of PDE5 inhibitors, stops the activity of PDE5. Viagra 100 mg tablet relaxes the smooth muscles present in the wall of blood vessels and increases the flow of blood to the penis for a longer time.

What is the Recommended Dosage?

Viagra Original comes in the form of blue diamond shaped tablet in the doses of 25, 50 0r 100 mg. It is taken orally with water. The maximum recommended daily dose of Viagra is 100 mg. If the patient is taking the tablet for the first time, usually the dosage should be limited to 50mg. The dosage can be adjusted based on the response to the dose.
The tablet is taken at least 30-60 minutes before sexual activity. The effect is observed within 30 minutes of administration of the dose and lasts up to 4 to 6 hours.
