viagra doesn't work

Viagra is one of the most popular drugs for the treatment of erectile dysfunction which shares with Cialis leading rankings by sales volumes. The effectiveness of the drug is very high and varies depending on the dosage, usually the more the higher, but not much. This means that the dosage of 50 mg is not necessarily worse than 100 mg.

However, there are men who administer Viagra does not get the desired effect. What could be the reasons for the ineffectiveness of the drug and what to do if you are faced with this situation?

The Reasons Why Viagra and Sildenafil-Based Drugs Don’t Work

  1. Insufficient dosage. Sometimes 25 mg is sufficient, while in other cases a minimum of 100 mg is needed to achieve the effect.
  2. “Immunity” to the drug. For some unknown reasons, some people have a tolerance to Viagra tablets. However, this may be due to the fact that the patient has a problem not with erection but with libido (see point 4 below).
  3. Fake medications. Some illegal websites sell products with low dosages of sildenafil or without the proper active ingredients. Naturally, if you take such “drugs” you won’t get anything.
  4. Very low libido. This means that the medicine can provide its effect, but it cannot do this, because a patient is not excited, hence his natural erection mechanisms cannot be activated.
  5. Performance anxiety (fear), relationship difficulties. As might be expected, blue pill is unlikely to be able to help in such situations.

What to Do if Viagra Does Not Work?

You have several options, depending on the reason.

If you, for example, took a dosage of 25 or 50 mg and did not get the desired effect, you can increase the dosage to 50 or 100 mg, respectively (provided you have no side effects, such as severe headache, severe muscle pain or serious face redness). Perhaps the medicament will work with increasing dosage. But be careful, don’t increase the dose without consulting a doctor if you suffer from serious cardiovascular illnesses.

If you think that you have a tolerance to the pharmaceutical substance (even the maximum allowable dosages do not work for you), try changing the drug by choosing another one from the class of PDE5 inhibitors. According to reviews, some men receive a beneficial effect from Cialis but Viagra do not work for them, and vice versa. Keep in mind that Cialis in lower dosages can be taken on a daily basis and the effect in such occasions is not achieved immediately, it takes a few days. Perhaps this option would be suitable for you.

There are other alternatives for those who cannot get any effect from PDE5 inhibitors. These are vacuum constriction devices (however, they are cumbersome and take some practice), intracavernous injections (may be painful), medicated urethral system for erection (may cause irritation). Penile implants are a last resort and are used in highly severe cases.

If you think you have purchased fake drugs, do not use them. Signs of fakeness may be suspicious packaging, uneven names on the packaging, the lack of instructions for use, the dubious appearance of the tablets.

If you take Viagra but you do not want sex and accordingly you do not get an erection, you may have problems with testosterone levels, which led to a decreased libido. This can also mean you have some problems with your sexual relationships. Unfortunately, Viagra is not able to increase libido and solve your personal psychological problems, it only contributes to the natural mechanisms of arousal. You need to treat the underlying problem which have caused the condition, perhaps the doctor will prescribe you hormone therapy which allows you to defeat testosterone deficiency in the body. In case of relationship issues and/or performance anxiety, counseling and sex therapy may be helpful.

Final tips

Do not forget about the natural mechanisms of the disease with erectile dysfunction. Exercise, correct your diet (consume more protein, minimize fast carbohydrates, eliminate unhealthy fats), fight with excess weight, because, as research has shown, it is one of the causes of impotence in men. Be healthy!
