What Viagra is used for
Viagra is used to treat erectile dysfunction, more commonly known as impotence, in men. This is when a man cannot get, or
keep, a hard erect penis suitable for sexual activity.
Viagra belongs to a new group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors.
It works by relaxing the blood vessels in your penis when you are sexually excited. This allows blood to flow into your penis,
allowing you to get an erection in the natural way.
Viagra will work only if you are sexually excited.
Viagra will not increase your sex drive
Viagra is not approved for use in women.
This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.
