No one will argue against the fact that sex as an activity is one of the necessities in life. These days, sexual intercourse is not only regarded as a means for reproduction. It is also a stress relieving and satisfying act especially for men. Almost all men have heard about the wonders of Viagra, one of the wonder drugs that hit the market.
Why is the drug so popular? Since its popularity increased in 1998 following its market launch, this medication has been part of modern pop culture. It is usually associated with increasing men’s sexual prowess. There is a running joke that the drug is the best friend of men who are experiencing difficulties in getting and maintaining penis erections usually due to old age. But on a serious note, it is more than that. It can also be the best friend of younger men or even adult men in all ages.
Interestingly, the medication’s development as a treatment for erectile dysfunction was an accident. It is not an urban legend that its maker, Pfizer, first tested the substance as a medication for angina pectoris, a type of heart disease, and hypertension. During the clinical trials, it was observed that most men who took the drug had firmer penis erections. The company then studied the potential of the formulation as a treatment for erectile dysfunction. The rest, as they say, is history.
In no time, Viagra has become one of the most successful and sought after drugs of all time. The controversy it drew was enough to make it not just a flash in the pan but also a household name. Now, most men are aware of erectile dysfunction and the potential of the medication to treat the condition. However, the treatment strictly requires physician’s prescriptions to ensure overall safety especially if a man is taking other medications and is suffering from specific health conditions.
Everything about the drug drew curiosity. Perhaps, it can be considered as the most successfully marketed drug in history. The design of the pill (diamond shaped) is unique. The blue color is not exclusively associated with the product. It even comes in various dosages to meet different requirements of different men. The drug can be bought and taken in dosages of 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg.
And who could ever underestimate what the treatment can do? Erectile dysfunction is a serious medical condition especially for men who want to continue enjoying their sex lives. Aside from helping achieve and maintain ideal penis erection, it can bring about a host of positive psychological and emotional effects. First, self esteem rebounds. Second, overall confidence is regained. Third, sexual relationships between couples are rekindled. And lastly, a man feels complete once again despite having erection problems due to various factors.
Moreover, Viagra has little or controlled side effects. Some men attest that they do not experience any unwanted side effects at all. There is no need to take the drug regularly as it should only be taken when the need arises. The effect can be felt and observed in as fast as just less than 20 minutes after taking the pill.
