viagra pill

The revolutionary drug Viagra also known as Revatio, that changed lives of countless number of men and women instantaneously becomes 10 year old this month.

The drug we know as Viagra was not intended and was discovered serendipitously(accidentally) by a team working in the research laboratory of the drug giant Pfizer.

They were testing Sildenafil, the main constituent(Sildenafil citrate) of Viagra, for cardiovascular diseases. Amusingly,what happened was that some of the volunteers in the clinical trial phase dint want to give the medicine back even after the clinical trial was over. The drug improved their sex lives,they were experiencing amazing (read: harder) and longer erection.

Thus the “Blue Pill” was born. The drug was patented in 1996 and FDA approved it on March 27,1998 for using it in treatment of ED(Erectile Dysfunction) or impotence. It became an instant hit, its annual sales for the period 1999-2001 crossed $1 billion.

It “induces” erection by dilating the blood carrying vessels to the penis and hence facilitates the blood flow which results in erection.

The pill is generally taken prior to eating anything and it starts working in about 30 mins and its effect last for about 4 hours. The dosage varies with prescription.

It also has common side effects like sneezing, headache, flushing, dyspepsia, palpitations and photophobia. Besides the usefulness, its enormous popularity resulted in misuses also.

Some people also dont like the idea for being “programmed” for love making!
