The Risk of Taking Viagra When You Don’t Have Erectile Dysfunction | Santa Monica Male Enhancement Doctors 855-930-2771
Viagra, an erectile dysfunction medication, has been abused by men for years. And unfortunately, there are consequences over the long-term using medicine when your body does not medically need it. So before taking this oral medication, it’s best to consult your doctor. Below, our Santa Monica Male Enhancement doctors discuss the risks of using this erectile dysfunction drug.
What is Viagra?
Viagra is known on the streets as the “little blue pill” because of its color, and, in its generic form, it’s called the “little white pill. Although other medications on the market work similarly to treat ED, Viagra is the most known and popular medication.
How does Viagra help with ED?
Viagra works by making the chemicals responsible for erections stay in your body a little longer.
A protein called phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) breaks down the chemicals that block blood flow to the penis needed for an erection. Viagra works by using inhibitors to block the protein and its effects. This allows for more blood flow to the penis and improves erections. But you’ll only experience this effect if you’re aroused.
Who is it approved for?
If you speculate that you may have ED, it’s best to consult with your healthcare provider so that you can decide what treatment plan is best for you. For example, you may not need the total dosage of Viagra.
Is Viagra safe to use if you don’t have ED?
You can purchase Viagra at a legal pharmacy if you have a prescription. Although, people use Viagra as a recreational drug and purchase it through illegitimate online pharmacies. It can be risky to use Viagra if you don’t have ED, primarily through an online pharmacy or questionable source. The pills could be contaminated with other unknown substances that are often illegal. The Little Blue Pills are the most popular counterfeit medication. It is not recommended.
What happens if you take Viagra when you don’t need them?
Taking medications, in general, come with side effects. However, if you mix those side effects when your body doesn’t medically need them, you may feel or experience intense side effects.
Common side effects include:
- Upset stomach
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Back pain
- Changes in vision
It is essential to consult with your doctor before taking Viagra, especially if you are on other medications. Mixing two or more chemical compounds could result in secondary effects.
Taking Viagra can also cause priapism- an erection lasting over four hours which could cause permanent damage. You must seek medical attention immediately if you can’t get your erection down.
As mentioned above, using recreational drugs from illegal or questionable sources risks your health. You don’t know what the pills are contaminated with. Often counterfeit medicines are laced with commercial paint, printer ink, or the wrong quantity.
How recreational Viagra affects sexual performance
No definitive studies claim that recreational Viagra improves sexual function; however, some men report it. However, men with erectile dysfunction who take Viagra claim sexual performance improves. Even though Viagra can help maintain an erection, recreational use may affect your sexual performance down the road. Studies have shown that recreational Viagra increases the risk of higher ED. In addition, it can negatively impact sexual function.
