Effects of Viagra

Viagra has been studied in men with diabetes, spinal cord injuries, or high blood pressure. These studies have shown the medication to be effective, regardless of the severity, cause, or other medical conditions. In long-term studies, up to 88 percent of men reported improved erections when taking Viagra. Effects have also been demonstrated in men who have undergone open heart surgery, radical prostatectomy, or transurethral resection of the prostate.

An Introduction to the Effects of Viagra

Viagra® (sildenafil citrate) is a prescription medication used to treat erectile dysfunction, which is also known as impotence or ED. This medication has been studied extensively in thousands of men who have erectile dysfunction due to various reasons. In all studies, Viagra has been shown to help men with this condition engage in sexual activity.
 

Specific Effects

To gain knowledge about the effects of Viagra, researchers asked men a series of questions about the ability to achieve erections and the ability to maintain an erection after penetration. They were also asked questions about orgasms, desire, satisfaction with intercourse, and overall sexual satisfaction. Improvements in erections were somewhat based on the Viagra dosage, with 63 percent of men on 25 mg, 74 percent of men on 50 mg, and 82 percent of men on 100 mg reporting an improvement. One-third to one-half also reported successful intercourse during a four-week period. In other long-term studies, up to 88 percent of men reported that Viagra improved erections.
 

Is Viagra Effective for Men With Diabetes?

Research has been conducted to determine the effects of Viagra on men with diabetes as well as erectile dysfunction. These studies also looked at the ability to achieve erections and the ability to maintain an erection after penetration. Men took either 50 mg or 100 mg of Viagra. Similar to the results of other studies, in men with diabetes, 57 percent reported improved erections, and 48 percent of intercourse attempts were successful.
