Following the prescription of a doctor will save you from serious side effects related to Sildenafil treatment. As taking the medicine appropriately decreases the risks to health, men should use the correct dose of the medicine and take other precautions.
Unfortunately Viagra is not a treatment for all men. Some of the males with erectile dysfunction must not use this medication.
Sildenafil citrate is a mild vasodilator with the properties to reduce the blood pressure to a certain extent. For most men who use Viagra this effect of the medicine is not actually dangerous and for some of the individuals can even be beneficial, but not for the men who use nitrate –based medications.
Your doctor should be well aware of your medical history and if you have angina and use nitrates, the use of Viagra for you is contraindicated. The reason for this is based on the fact that nitrates significantly reduce the blood pressure. With a nitrate medicine Sildenafil can dangerously abate the blood pressure level. There may be a marked relaxation of the muscles that control the vessels with a great drop in blood pressure.
Patients, who have mixed Viagra with nitrates for chest pain or so called recreational drugs containing nitrates, suffer from serious side effects including fainting, heart conditions related to drop in blood pressure.
Nitrate in combination with Sildenafil can even lead to fatal conditions.
These drugs react with one another and are proven to be harmful in case you take them in combination. Always check with your doctor before you buy and take Viagra. Identifying a nitrate medicine today is not simple. There is a great number of prescription forms of nitrate drugs. With so many, it is nearly impossible to remember all of them. If you are uncertain about your medicines, please ask your doctor.
Persons who are using medications containing nitrates must not take Viagra.
Since sexual activity or exercise can provoke a heart attack in patients with angina pectoris, the use of Viagra and nitrates is not safe.

Do not be worried about any discomfort of visiting a doctor. It is a common health problem and a doctor is a person who will give you advice and recommendations.
Once you decide to visit a doctor, get ready to answer some questions about your general health and medicines you may use. It is important that your doctor knows about the following things:
• Medicines you have recently used, medicines you regularly use, medicines you are using at the moment;
• Allergic reaction history – it may be a history of allergic reactions to certain drugs, foods, chemical substances;
• Diseases and conditions you may have, esp. heart disease, hypertension, kidney or liver disease, any other serious condition or disorder;

Viagra is high –standard medicine produced with respect to safety and efficacy, if used properly and with doctor’s advice, it does not have any negative effects on health, but contributes to ED condition improvement.
Nowadays there are sufficient additional methods for ED treatments. They are vacuum constriction devices, intraurethral alprostadil suppository or intracavernous injection treatment and sex therapy.
Vacuum pumps comprise a plastic tube, in which you should place the penis. The pump may be operated manually or with batteries, it creates a vacuum that will make blood flow into your penis and it will erect. You should place a rubber ring to the bottom of the penis in order to keep it erect. You are not recommended to use a vacuum pump if you suffer from a bleeding disorder or take anticoagulant medications.
Alprostadil is a hormone medication that actuates the blood flow to penis, and may be taken in two different ways:
- By intracavernosal injections – whereby the medicine is injected into the penis
- By intraurethral application – whereby an alprostadil granule of 1.6mm in diameter and 6mm long is placed into the urethra by means of a urethral stick.
Alprostadil is usually used if the patient can not be treated by other medications, if you do not want to take oral medications or try vacuum pump method. The health consultant usually gives training how to inject or insert alprostadil.
