Viagra Side Effects

While Viagra is a very popular and advantageous medicine in men, it does not come without side effects. Some may be minor and go away with usage while some may require medical attention. Most common side effects reported by the usage of this medicine are skin rash, dizziness, nausea, pain in the back, flushing and excessive sweating, and fever.

Cardiovascular Side Effects

Uncommon side effects, which affect 0.1% to 1.0% of users include increase in heart rate, palpitations or fluttering of heartbeat, and regulation in normal blood pressure. Very rarely users have also reported heart attack and cardiac death.

Blood-related and Metabolic Side Effects

Anaemia is the most common side effect of Viagra haematologically. On the other hand, retention of fluids and water-based bloating are the common metabolic side effects of Viagra consumption.

Psychological Side Effects

Due to increased blood flow, many people experience a feeling of anxiety and loss of sleep. Viagra imposes similar side effects as caffeine or energy drinks, leaving the user hyperactive.

Precautions

Viagra is sold illegally and is sometimes consumed by men at parties for entertainment. While Viagra is marketed by pharmaceutical suppliers as a treatment, some misuse it, and these individuals are often the ones who experience the most side effects. A popular misconception is that Viagra enables a man to have a pleasurable experience for a very long time and let the men “last all night”. This entices men into using the drug inappropriately, often overdosing on the medication.

It is very important to keep in mind that unnecessary usage and overdosing increases the risk of side effects. Before using any medication, it is advisable that the user seeks out medical consultation first. A doctor who is aware of your medical history knows what is best for you and will always suggest the best treatment options.
