  • 15 Most Important Questions about Viagra Professional

    Viagra Pro is a short form of Viagra Professional, which in its turn is a powerful ED fighter containing Sildenafil Citrate as the key ingredient of both genuine Viagra and its cost-effective generic counterparts. Viagra Professional is a lifestyle drug that helps men struggling with an inability to reach or maintain a quality erection by affecting the response to sexual provocation. The main component of this drug has an influence on the penile blood vessels, causing them to relax and expand allowing the blood to rush to the erectile tissue what results in a hard erection. Since Viagra Pro is not as widely known and accepted as brand Viagra, patients often ask many questions about this ED treatment. So let’s answer the most frequently asked ones.

    For all sorts of interesting facts about the drug and how to use it go to the article written by Canadian Health&Care Mall specialists canadianhealthmall.com/viagra-professional. The author decided to elaborate on many interesting aspects of the drug and its possible medical applications.

    15 Most Important Questions about Vi Pro

    How does Viagra Professional work?

    Viagra Professional is indicated for the management of erectile disorders in men over 18. The physiology of erection involves a surge of nitric oxide (NO) in the erectile tissue during the sexual excitement. The release of nitric oxide initiates the production of guanylate cyclase. Together, both chemicals give an increased concentration of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), leading to the relaxation of the blood vessels walls in the erectile tissue (corpus cavernosum) providing for a greater blood inflow. The active ingredient of Viagra Professional amplifies the action of nitric oxide by blocking the effect of phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5), which inhibits the enzyme cGMP in the penis to bring all body chemicals to the normal balance. Interestingly that Vi Pro has no effect without sexual stimulation because it is exactly the sexual provocation what causes the local release of nitric oxide which then ignites an erection in a chain-reaction style.

    Is there any risk of taking Viagra Professional?

    Patients with preexisting cardiovascular conditions who are advised to refrain from the sexual activity should not take Viagra Professional or any other medicament with Sildenafil Citrate. Since the drug has a vasodilatory property, men with blood pressure conditions should also avoid taking it. A decreased vision was reported in people with underlying eye diseases after taking Sildenafil Citrate. Individuals with blood cell diseases should not use any PDE5 inhibitors including Viagra Professional.

    Does Viagra Professional interact with other drugs or products?

    Alcohol has a vasodilatory property – so does Viagra Professional. The combination of both can lead to a life-threatening drop in blood pressure. Grapefruit is reported to increase a level of Sildenafil in the body and delay its action.

    There are other drugs which have major interactions with Vi Pro:

    • Nitric Oxide Donors;
    • Alpha-blockers;
    • Amlodipine;
    • CYP3A4 inhibitors;
    • Antibiotics;
    • Antifungal medicine;
    • HIV/AIDS medications;
    • Drugs which treat prostate disorders;
    • Drugs which treat pulmonary arterial hypertension;
    • Other male enhancers.

    How is Viagra Professional used in specific populations?

    How is Vi Pro used in specific populations

    Viagra Professional is not meant to be used in women, pregnant women or children under 18. There are no restrictions for geriatric patients provided they have no underlying conditions with which the use of Sildenafil is not advisable. Mild to moderate renal impairment does not require any dose adjustments with Viagra Professional. Patients with a severely impaired renal function should take the drug only after consulting a doctor. Men with a compromised liver function should also consult a specialist prior taking Viagra Professional.

    Which adverse reactions may happen after taking Viagra Professional?

    Unfortunately, an enhanced erection is not the only reaction which can be triggered by this ED drug.

    Undesirable events associated with this generic include:

    • Abnormal vision;
    • Anemia;
    • Bleeding events;
    • Blood pressure swings;
    • Cough;
    • Dizziness;
    • Facial flushing;
    • Headache;
    • Insomnia;
    • Pain in different parts of the body;
    • Prolonged and painful erection;
    • Rapid heartbeat;
    • Rhinitis;
    • Skin redness;
    • Stomach upset, nausea, vomiting.

    How should I take Viagra Professional?

    The drug is available in the strength of 100 mg. If you have any preexisting conditions, your doctor may advise you to split that pill into two or four doses – the drug will not lose its effectiveness. Make sure you read the patients leaflet and understand everything it tells you. Always follow the given recommendations. Use the drug on an as-needed basis. Viagra Professional usually starts working in 30 minutes after intake and preserves its action up to 4 hours. The medicine is only effective when sexual stimulation occurs. Never exceed the prescribed dose to avoid the overdose symptoms.

    Will Viagra Professional enhance my drive for sex?

    Sildenafil Citrate, the main component of Viagra Professional, is an official drug for an erectile disorder, it has nothing to do with improving your libido. If there is no catalyst such as sexual excitement, the remedy will not help with producing an erection.

    I heard that drugs like Viagra Professional protect against sexually transmitted diseases. Is it really so?

    The use of Viagra Pro does not protect against STDs. Always use protective measures to fend off sexually transmitted diseases.

    What happens if a woman takes Vi Professional?

    What happens if a woman takes Vi Pro

    Though the drug is not indicated for women, curious females often break this rule. If a woman takes a pill of Viagra Professional, chances are that she will experience the same side-effects as a man. But wait, there is more. There were numerous studies investigating the influence of Sildenafil Citrate on women. It was found out that the key ingredient of original and generic Viagra can treat the female sexual arousal disorder and help women achieve an orgasm. Above that, such a drug increases her chances to conceive by aiding blood supply to the uterus and increasing the thickness of the uterine lining.

    Can generics like Viagra Professional really work?

    It is a popular question stemming from those old times when generic Viagra was illegal in most countries and many pharmaceutical companies producing cheap drugs were often considered unreliable. Today the situation is absolutely different owing to the fact that the Pfizer’s patent for Viagra has expired in many countries (Canada, UK, and more) and many unknown manufacturers could at last hit the market changing the game forever. Many pharmaceutical companies like Teva or Mylan use Sildenafil Citrate to produce legal and cheap male enhancement drugs. It all means that such drugs work pretty in the same way as originals but never ruin your budget.

    Is Viagra Professional addictive?

    Some ED sufferers avoid taking ED drugs believing that it all can lead to an addiction and that without such a drug, they will not be able to get horny. Viagra Professional and other of its kind develop neither addiction nor some mental attachment. Still, it is a popular misconception suggesting that PDE5 inhibitors can treat erectile dysfunction. No, they cannot. Such meds can only temporary remove impotence as a symptom of some underlying condition or some mental disturbance.

    What is the link between drugs like Viagra Pro and abnormal vision?

    The active ingredient in Viagra Pro can cause a visual disturbance in men with inherited eye conditions like retinitis pigmentosa. This is so because the active component can block the PDE5 enzyme and partially affect the retina enzyme PDE6 which is responsible for transmitting signals from it to the brain.

    Why is it bad to mix Viagra Professional with alpha-blockers and anti-hypertensive drugs?

    Viagra Professional and alpha-adrenergic blocking agents both have a vasodilatory effect, meaning they both can make blood vessels expand. The extension of blood vessels leads to the blood pressure drop. If you use two vasodilators simultaneously, it causes an additive effect on the blood pressure, resulting in significant hypotension.

    I have type 2 diabetes. Is Vi Pro safe for me?

    I have type 2 diabetes

    The drug is pretty safe but diabetics should always consult their doctors before applying to a new remedy. Diabetes involves taking different drugs to support the function of the heart, and you know that there may be serious drug-to-drug interactions. The good news is that medications containing Sildenafil Citrate like Viagra Professional not only help men cure their erectile disorder but also improve insulin sensitivity in such patients while reducing the risk of kidney and heart diseases. What is more, Sildenafil can also lower the level of albumin in the urine – the first marker that there is an underlying risk for kidney and heart diseases.

    Does a higher dose of Viagra Professional mean a better quality erection?

    The higher the dose is the more severe the side effects are. The recommended dose of Viagra Professional is 100 mg not oftener than every 24 hours. If you take, say, 200 mg, you will hardly notice improved efficacy but will likely have more serious side effects.
