Chemical Name SILDENAFIL (sil-DEN-a-fil)
VIAGRA is a prescription medication designed to help men maintain an erection when the penis is stimulated. It works by increasing blood flow to the penis- and with sexual stimulation- results in an erection. Patients must be aware that they will not get an erection by simply taking a VIAGRA pill. It is designed to improve the ability for men to have an erection only.
Did you know VIAGRA has proven results for 80% of men who have taken it?
Take VIAGRA exactly as prescribed by your healthcare professional. They will decide the correct dose for each patient, depending on their condition and response. It is recommended to take your daily dose of VIAGRA approximately one hour before you intend to have sex. Swallow the tablet whole with a full glass of water. Do not take more than one dose daily because this greatly increases the risks of severely low blood pressure.
It may take time to see the effects of VIAGRA as it varies from person to person, but it normally takes between 30 minutes to 1 hour. Patients may notice the medication takes longer to work after a heavy meal. VIAGRA works faster when you take it on an empty stomach.
VIAGRA may not be right for you. Certain medical conditions may prevent a patient from taking this medication. Patients should discuss the following medical conditions with their healthcare professional before taking VIAGRA.
- If you are taking any nitrate medication
- Irregular heartbeat
- Coronary artery disease
- Heart attack, stroke or a history of heart conditions
- High blood pressure/low blood pressure
- Abnormal penis, including curved penis and birth defects of the penis
- Bleeding problems
- Retinitis pigmentosa
- Conditions causing thickened blood or slower blood flow, including leukemia, multiple myeloma (tumors of the bone marrow, or polycythemia, sickle cell disease, and thrombocythemia (blood problems)
- Heart or blood diseases
- Severe kidney problems or liver problems
While VIAGRA helps most patients with correcting their ED problems, it can cause some unwanted side effects. All medicines have side effects - most minor and temporary. However, some may be serious and need medical attention. Speak to your healthcare professional immediately if you do not feel well while on VIAGRA.
Some common and not so common side effects are:
- nasal congestion
- stomach discomfort after meals
- abnormal vision (blurred vision, seeing shades of colors differently than before, or sensitivity to light)
- bladder pain
- cloudy or bloody urine
- increased urination or pain during urination
- bleeding of the eye
- convulsions (seizures)
- decreased or double vision or in extreme cases blindness
- a blue tint to your vision
- prolonged, painful, or inappropriate erection of penis
- redness, burning, or swelling of the eye
When used appropriately, VIAGRA is safe and effective in treating ED in men. Before taking VIAGRA, consult your healthcare professional to see if it is right for you.

What is a Generic Drug?
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
