Everything elderly men should know about taking Viagra pills.

It’s not a secret that with age, men are more likely to suffer from such health disorder as erectile dysfunction. At the same time, medical advances lead to a gradual increase in life expectancy, and mature people try to live those extra years fully. They want to work, travel, play, and, of course, love! The heart wants what it wants, and love can occur at any age.

Is it contrary to nature?

According to one view, erection problems late in life are a kind of defensive reaction, a mechanism against excessive loads, since having sex is rather a hard work requiring considerable physical effort. Just to get an erection is not enough, men need more force to exercise frictions and maintain a certain posture. Moreover, the very process of arousal takes their bodies to a higher level of energy consumption. Yes, Viagra will ensure men great erection, but still it’s not worthwhile setting demanding requirements to their bodies: for example, practicing repetitive or too lengthy sexual acts, having sex in positions where a man has to make a great physical effort, having sex with several women per day, exceeding the dosage of Viagra, or combining it with large doses of alcohol. A few cases of death after taking Viagra among older men are usually caused by just such a barbaric attitude towards their health. It was not Viagra, but related stress that led to death in those cases.

Will Viagra help elderly men?

An elderly man whom the doctor prescribes Viagra (effective remedy for curing erectile dysfunction), is usually concerned about two issues:
– Will Viagra help me, or maybe I should use another drug?
The answer is: in most cases, Viagra is helpful. The effectiveness of Viagra in a dosage of 100 mg is 82% and its efficiency among the elderly men is the same as among those who are younger.
– Can I take “Viagra” at my age?
The answer is: one should pay attention to the overall health rather than the age. However, health and age are closely related and incidence of chronic diseases, including heart disease, among elderly men increases. Therefore, they should take care of themselves.

If your medical record contains coronary heart disease or cardiac angina, be especially careful when taking Viagra. Remember that it cannot be combined with nitroglycerin or other nitrates. Otherwise, blood pressure may decrease dramatically, and a heart attack will not be blocked. Apart from a physician or a urologist who has prescribed Viagra consult with a cardiologist. Even stroke and heart attack are not absolute contraindications; however, a patient should be examined by medical professionals.
If the diagnosis of coronary heart disease has not yet been confirmed, but a man often feels a stabbing pain in his heart during intense physical activity (walking, jogging, having sex) he has to make an appointment with a cardiologist to find out whether he can take Viagra. If sex is not contraindicated, he may spend the evening with a charming woman, and the blue pill will definitely help him.
So, Viagra may provide an active sex life at the old age, if men mind their actual health condition.
