Viagra Soft

What is it used for?

Viagra Soft is an oral drug used to restore erectile ability in men affected by ED. The drug is based on sildenafil, but thanks to its chewable tablet form, its absorption and consecutively the onset of effect occurs faster than it does for the classical Viagra pills. The drug’s effects last for the ensuing 4 to 5 hours.

Viagra Soft contains sildenafil citrate, and by ordering the drug from our pharmacy you confirm that you know what this substance is, what the correct doses are and how to use take it without risks for your health. You should always seek advice of your pharmacist or doctor before taking Viagra Soft. In case of side effects that are persistent or bothersome, seek medical help without delay.

Pharmacy drug characteristics

Viagra Soft is an oral agent enabling men with confirmed ED to achieve and maintain penetrative erection that is stable, controllable and lasting. Sildenafil, the active substance in Viagra Soft, is a vasoactive drug that promotes blood circulation in the penile area by inhibiting the enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5 (abbreviated PDE5). This enzyme is found mostly in the corpora cavernosal smooth muscles of the penis, but can also be traced in insignificant amounts in the eye retina, hence occasional vision changes reported as side effects of the drug use.

Blocking PDE5 releases nitric oxide (NO), which promotes the relaxation and expansion of blood vessels. They absorb the maximal amount of blood whenever sexual stimulation occurs, and keep it “trapped” within during all the time leading up to climaxing.

Use and dosing instructions

Viagra Soft should be taken 20 to 30 minutes before sexual activity is supposed to happen. The drug is taken by mouth; it is a chewable tablet whose intake should not necessarily be followed up by water, which adds a layer of convenience and discreetness.

Viagra Soft can be taken on an empty stomach or after a light meal. Excessive meals or alcohol consumption can inhibit and delay the effects of the drug.

Viagra Soft is available in doses 50mg and 100mg, subject to doctor’s appointing based on tolerance and efficacy. The lower end of the dosing spectrum is usually the initial step.

Drugs Viagra Soft should not be taken with

Viagra Soft should not be taken in combination with other nitrate donors, drugs metabolized by CYP3A4 enzyme, alcohol and grapefruit / grapefruit juice.

Warnings and precautions

Viagra Soft should not be taken with grapefruit or grapefruit juice. If you have heart problems, you should ask your doctor’s opinion as to whether or not sexual activity is safe for you to engage in. Viagra Soft is taken in its lower dose in persons with decreased clearance rate, as well as in geriatric population.

Symptoms of Viagra Soft overdose

The symptoms of sildenafil overdose are similar to those of side events, but are more intense or persistent in their nature. If you suspect that you have been exposed to a toxic dose of Viagra Soft, seek medical help without delay. In order to avoid the risks associated with sildenafil overdose, always adhere to medicine instructions received from your prescriber.

Missing a dose of Viagra Soft

You cannot miss a dose of Viagra Soft as long as you take the drug as needed, that is before sexual intercourse. Taking an increased dose of Viagra Soft will not speed up the effect onset, but will expose you to adverse effects of the overdose. Take a pill as soon as you remember to and allow for 20 to 30 minutes to pass before you engage in sexual activity.

Storage

Store Viagra Soft at room temperature in places protected from heat, moisture and direct sunrays, where minors and pets do not have access to it.

Toxicity potential

As any other drug, Viagra Soft can have toxic effects when taken in doses higher than prescribed. Seek medical help if this happens.
