Since its introduction over 10 years ago, Viagra has become as recognizable a product as General Motors or Coca Cola. It is estimated that over 25 million men around the world have tried Viagra since its inception. Viagra, of course, is a drug that helps men with erectile dysfunction. After being introduced it immediately gained attention from the press and the general public. However, despite it name recognition, people are not very knowledgeable about it or the condition it is meant to treat.
The first thing to know about Viagra is that it treats what is considered to be a physiological problem. That is, it helps get blood flow to the penis which in turn helps to get and maintain an erection. This physiological difficulty is common among men between 40 and 70 years of age.
The second thing to be aware of is that an erection does not occur as a result of taking the pill. Instead, when one is sexually aroused mentally, the pill helps this arousal manifest itself in an erection by allowing for increased blood flow.
