Q. What is generic Viagra®?

A. The term "generic" Viagra® (or generic Sildenafil Citrate) is sometimes used to refer to a form of Viagra® that is either a re-branded Pfizer Viagra®, a Herbal Viagra® alternative, or a Viagra® compounded substitute. The brand name Viagra® is registered to Pfizer, who have a world patent on this medication.

The reputable pharmacies use genuine Viagra® formulations. These products are tested and approved to the required FDA standards. We request you consider only the authentic Viagra® from any pharmacy.

Occasionally unknown pharmacies, usually from Asia, with no authentication offer very cheap and untested generic sildenafil citrate formulas. They have no documented scientific support. Therefore the chemical compounds these pharmacies use have not been investigated for potential harmful effects or residual irritation. Please exercise extreme caution with products that sound too good to be true - generally they are.

Genuine Viagra will give you proven performance and when correctly prescribed by reputable pharmacies it is safe to use. Why risk total enjoyment with a safe product, just to save a couple of dollars? An old saying is often true "you get what you pay for."

In place of genuine Viagra®, a Herbal Viagra alternative or supplement may be just right and more suitable for you. Herbal products are often used as a supplement to a Viagra® prescription and will give you that extra vitality and energy. These products do not mislead you by pretending to be a Viagra® equivalent. NB. Herbal Viagra alternative products do not require a prescription.

Q. How effective is Viagra ®?

Over 21 studies have been done to evaluate the efficacy of Viagra®. Evaluation of drug activity was most often done using a self-assessment questionnaire. During a 6-month open labeled study, Viagra® was found to improve sexual function in 88% of those treated. This included frequency, firmness, and maintenance of an erection; frequency of orgasm; frequency and level of desire; frequency, satisfaction and enjoyment of sexual intercourse; and overall relationship satisfaction.

Q. How does Pfizer Viagra ® work?

Pfizer Viagra ® (sildenafil citrate) enables many men with erectile dysfunction (ED) to respond to sexual stimulation. When a man is sexually aroused, the arteries in the penis relax and widen, allowing more blood to flow into the penis. As the arteries in the penis expand and harden, the veins that normally carry blood away from the penis become compressed, restricting the blood flow out of the penis. With more blood flowing in and less flowing out, the penis enlarges, resulting in an erection. Please understand that sildenafil citrate is not a hormone or aphrodisiac, it works only when a man is sexually stimulated.

Q. Will Viagra ® work for me?

A. Viagra® works for about 80% of men that try it. Consuming large quantities of alcohol and eating a meal that is high in fat will cause Viagra® to be less effective.

Q. When should I take Viagra ®?

A. Viagra® should be taken 30 minutes to 1 hour before intercourse, giving you ample time to become more acquainted with your partner.

Q. How long does Viagra ® last?

A. Viagra®, taken as prescribed, will remain in your system for 4 to 8 hours, providing more than enough time for those "not so timely" events.

Q. Will Viagra ® stop working when I ejaculate?

A. As long as you are sexually stimulated within the 4 to 8 hour time frame, Viagra® will still be working for you.
