Generic Viagra (sildenafil) is prescribed to treat erectile dysfunction (ED), the inability to get or maintain an erection, as a result of impotence. ED is common in men, characterized by complete or intermittent inability to get and maintain an erection for sexual activity. Viagra is not for use by women or children.
Generic Viagra requires a prescription. You can get a prescription for generic Viagra (sildenafil) at Blink Health, including online doctor visit and refills. All generic medications sold through Blink Health Pharmacy are FDA-approved.
How Viagra works
Viagra is a phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitor, increasing blood flow to the penis during sexual stimulation to help achieve erection. Viagra does not cure ED, increase sexual desire, prevent pregnancy, or protect against sexually transmitted diseases (including HIV).
Viagra is most effective if taken 1 hour before sexual activity, but can be taken up to 4 hours prior. Do not take more than one dose every 24 hours. People with certain health conditions may need to limit Viagra doses; discuss with your doctor how often to take it.
Viagra vs Sildenafil

Also, sildenafil is available in 20mg dosage. Viagra comes in diamond shaped blue pills and sildenafil comes in white or blue tablets. Both are equally effective for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Common side effects of Viagra

Viagra dosage information
Viagra pills come in dosages:
Your doctor may start you at a lower dose, monitor for side effects and effectiveness, and increase dosage as appropriate.
Viagra was the first PDE5 inhibitor approved to treat ED. Pfizer originally developed it to treat hypertension and angina pectoris, but clinical trials revealed that it was more effective at inducing erection. It was FDA approved in 1998, and by 2008 hit almost $2 billion in sales.

How to Take Viagra
Before taking generic Viagra (sildenafil), be sure you fully understand your licensed medical professional's instructions for using it. In addition, when you receive your generic Viagra, read the Patient Information Leaflet that comes with it. A licensed medical professional can answer any questions you have after reading this leaflet.
To treat erectile dysfunction (ED), take generic Viagra orally as directed by your licensed medical professional, usually on an as-needed basis. You should take generic Viagra at least 30 minutes, but no more than 4 hours, before sexual activity (1 hour before is the most effective). Do not take it more than once daily.
Keep in mind: Consuming a high-fat meal can delay how quickly the medication begins to work.
The dosage is based on your medical condition, response to treatment, and other medications you may be taking. Be sure to tell your clinician or pharmacist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products).
If your condition does not improve after using generic Viagra, talk to a licensed medical professional.
Viagra Side Effects
It's important to be aware of possible side effects before you start taking a medication.
Here are the listed side effects for this drug:
Dizziness, headache, flushing, or stomach upset may occur. Vision changes such as increased sensitivity to light, blurred vision, or trouble telling blue and green colors apart may also occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
To reduce the risk of dizziness and lightheadedness, get up slowly when rising from a sitting or lying position.
Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

Rarely, sudden decreased vision, including permanent blindness, in one or both eyes (NAION) may occur. If this serious problem occurs, stop taking sildenafil and get medical help right away. You have a slightly greater chance of developing NAION if you have heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, certain other eye problems ('crowded disk'), high blood pressure, if you are over 50, or if you smoke.

Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: heart problems (such as heart attack or life-threatening irregular heartbeat in the past 6 months, chest pain/angina, heart failure), stroke in the past 6 months, kidney disease, liver disease, high or low blood pressure, a severe loss of body water (dehydration), penis conditions (such as angulation, fibrosis/scarring, Peyronie's disease), history of painful/prolonged erection (priapism), conditions that may increase the risk of priapism (such as sickle cell anemia, leukemia, multiple myeloma), eye problems (such as retinitis pigmentosa, sudden decreased vision, NAION).

During pregnancy, sildenafil should be used only when clearly needed. Since high blood pressure in the lungs is a serious condition that can harm both a pregnant woman and her unborn baby, do not stop this medication unless directed by your doctor. If you are planning pregnancy, become pregnant, or think you may be pregnant, talk to your doctor about the benefits and risks of using sildenafil.

When used with nitrates, sildenafil can cause a serious drop in your blood pressure. This can lead to dizziness, fainting, and, rarely, heart attack or stroke. Do not use sildenafil with any of the following: certain drugs used to treat chest pain/angina (nitrates such as nitroglycerin, isosorbide), recreational drugs called 'poppers' containing amyl nitrate, amyl nitrite, or butyl nitrite.
If you are taking an alpha blocker medication (such as doxazosin, tamsulosin) to treat an enlarged prostate/BPH or high blood pressure, at the same time you're taking generic Viagra, your blood pressure may get too low which can lead to dizziness or fainting. Your doctor may start treatment with a lower dose of sildenafil to minimize your risk of low blood pressure.

Examples of these medications include azole antifungals (such as itraconazole, ketoconazole), macrolide antibiotics (such as clarithromycin, erythromycin), HIV protease inhibitors (such as ritonavir, saquinavir), hepatitis C virus protease inhibitors (such as boceprevir, telaprevir), mifepristone, rifampin, among others.
