A survey conducted by Pfizer found that most Viagra pills sold online are counterfeit. Although the best way to buy genuine prescription medications is to buy from a local pharmacy, it is also possible to buy Viagra online from trusted sources.

Almost anything can be bought online these days, including some prescription drugs like Viagra. This prescription drug is also known as Sildenafil, which is used to treat impotence or male sexual dysfunction.

As easy as it sounds, buying Viagra online is a convenient way of acquiring the drug in a discreet manner in the privacy of one’s home.

However, many people wonder if it is safe to buy Viagra online, considering that dispensing the drug without a prescription is illegal.

Viagra for Erectile Dysfunction

Chronic erectile dysfunction affects up to 25% of men aged 65 and above and about 5% of younger men. However, it is common for most men to experience an inability to achieve an erection occasionally. If this happens about 20% of the time, no treatment is usually necessary. On the other hand, failing to have an erection more than 50% of the time indicates that treatment may be necessary.

There are many factors that can cause problems with erection. Stress, anxiety, and depression are common factors that can cause occasional erection problems. Chronic illness such as diabetes and heart disease, as well as medications for these illnesses can also cause men to lose their ability to achieve an erection. An injury to the penis that leads to scar formation, nerve problems and hardening of the arteries are among other possible causes of erectile dysfunction.

Viagra or sildenafil citrate is a pill prescribed by doctors to men who have problems with penile erection during sex. It enables men to respond to sexual arousal by helping the penis get filled with enough blood, causing an erection. The erection goes away after sex is over.

Users must be informed that Viagra does not cure erectile dysfunction, it merely helps one achieve an erection when sexually stimulated.

Ordering Viagra Online

The best way to obtain Viagra is to first consult a doctor who will evaluate the cause of your erectile dysfunction and prescribe a suitable treatment. Sometimes, treating the underlying cause of the problem, such as diabetes or chronic stress will help improve sexual dysfunction.

If using Viagra is part of the management of your problem, it is advisable to get a prescriptionfor the drug from your doctor who will advise you on the proper way to use it and the precautions you need to take when using it.

The safest way to obtain Viagra is to purchase it at your local pharmacy with a reputable pharmacist.

Some people would opt to buy Viagra online to maintain their privacy and for the convenience of having their medications delivered to their doorsteps. The internet is an attractive means of obtaining many products, including drugs. Some websites promote cheap Viagra for sale while others sell it without asking for a prescription. Other sites also offer overnight shipping, free shipping, and online doctor consultation. These offers sound very tempting to many men who would rather not go to a doctor for consultation and lab tests, or to go back for a refill of their prescription. Others who are embarrassed to let anyone know about their problems would rather obtain their medications in the privacy of their home, trusting that online pharmacies are as legitimate as a local pharmacy.

The question is, it really safe to buy Viagra online?
