Brand Viagra

Generic Name: sildenafil, pronounced as sil DEN a fil

Brand Name: Viagra

What Is Brand Viagra?

This medication is used to treat impotence (erectile dysfunction) in men. It works by relaxing the muscles found in the blood vessel walls, and therefore increasing the flow of blood to particular body areas, specifically the penis. To get and keep an erection, the medication needs sexual stimulation for it to work.

Key Information About Brand Viagra

You should know that taking this medication won’t protect you from sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea, syphilis, HIV, or hepatitis B. It is highly recommended that you still practice ‘safe sex’ during sexual activities. Better yet, consult your pharmacist or doctor.
