Basic Rules to Increase Viagra's Efficiency

There is a maxim in some cultures, saying that there are three things every man should perform during his life – to plant a tree, to build a house and to give rise to a son.

In spite of seeming simplicity and easiness of those tasks, it usually takes the whole life for a man to reach these goals. The way is not so easy because of different obstacles and trials, prepared by Destiny.

One of such trials is erectile dysfunction (ED) - sexual disorder, disabling millions of men around the world from performing their reproductive function.

Happily, people invented Viagra, blue diamond-shaped pills, restoring erectile functionality of the penis and bringing vividness and plenitude of feelings back to a man's life.

150 millions of written prescriptions, 700 000 physicians, recommending Viagra as the treatment option for ED and a world-fame status are the results of the first 7 years of Viagra’s presence on the market, since it was approved by American Food and Drug Administration in 1998.

The recent studies showed that 91% of men treated with Viagra had successful sexual intercourses. 51% of them became ready for love game as soon as 20 minutes.

Though these figures are very encouraging, there are still cases when people are not completely satisfied with Viagra treatment. There are several basic rules in using Viagra, which are crucially important for ensuring the highest results and efficiency.

1) Stimulation – Viagra is the medication, which increases the blood flow into the penis, thus ensuring its erection, in response to sexual stimulation. So, taking a pill of Viagra and sitting in front of TV, watching latest news is not a good idea to get an erection. Viagra works only in combination with sexual stimulation, like love foreplay, kissing and caress.

2) Persistence – this issue is important not only when fighting with erectile dysfunction. Every goal requires certain efforts to reach it. Sometimes, especially when a man suffered from ED for years, it may take some time to prepare his body and soul for normal sexual activity again.

3) Food and alcohol – Viagra's producers say that it works with or without food and alcohol. But the highest efficiency Viagra demonstrates when taken on empty stomach or after low-fat meal.

4) Dose optimization – Viagra is available in 25-, 50- and 100-mg doses. It helps physicians to make a prescription of Viagra dose, taking into account age, health condition, chronic diseases, nature and causes of erectile dysfunction in every particular case.
