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.

Irrespective of the age of your child, it is vital for parents to offer that extra support and assistance following an unsettling event.

In comparison to adults, children are prone to getting traumatized by troubling events easily, and this makes it important for parents to help their children when the times are tough.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
