Viagra tablets are consumed by millions of men across the globe. Pixabay

Erectile dysfunction has affected millions and millions of men all over the world and most of these men turn to drugs like Viagra to help. However, what people don’t know is that when they pay for that price tag, they’re paying for the brand name and the costs that come with it. Why pay your hard earned money for marketing and branding, when you can switch to an option that is more cost-effective and doesn’t compromise your treatment?

This is where Sildenafil comes in. The generic variant of Viagra, Sildenafil has the same active chemical compound and, therefore, has the same results as you would expect from the brand name. To help you out, we’ve prepared this little informational blog on Sildenafil, its effects, and side effects.


Physiological Impact

The active chemical compound in Sildenafil, sildenafil citrate, works by increasing the blood flow to the penis, that helps achieve an erection. It also relaxes the muscles in the groin area, which allows you to sustain your erection for a longer time. It should be noted that the pill won’t automatically give you an erection when you take it and neither does it cause sexual arousal. After taking the drug, you’ll have to be sexually aroused naturally, which is when the pill kicks in to help achieve an erection.

Sildenafil is not only used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Due to the physiological impact it has on the body, it is also used to find relief from symptoms of an enlarged prostate. For example, because it relaxes the muscles in the groin area, it helps you achieve a better stream of urine.

Side Effects

The side effects associated with Sildenafil are the same as those associated with Viagra. One of the physiological impacts of the drug is that it increases levels of nitric oxide in the body and, that combined with the sudden changes in the blood flow, headaches can be an occurrence for some users. However, you can curb it quite easily by increasing your water intake and taking a light meal half an hour before consuming the tablet. These blood pressure changes can also cause slight dizziness, but such symptoms would subside as your body becomes acclimated to the tablet.

Apart from headaches, few have also reported digestive problems, such as indigestion and diarrhea. However, if problems like this persist, consider making dietary changes such as replacing caffeine with water. On the rarest of occasions, visual changes have also been reported. Such changes are a serious problem and you should consult with your doctor immediately if you experience such symptoms.

Conclusion

Considering Sildenafil has all the same properties as Viagra, it definitely is better to save money and buy the generic version rather than spend on a brand name.

Before you start taking Sildenafil, you should not do so without a doctor’s consultation, especially if you have any medical history related to the heart, kidney, or liver, or if you are a diabetic. It is important to properly discuss your history with the doctor and set the dose accordingly just to be on the safe side.

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
