Viagra Professional (Sildenafil): An Improved Solution To Male Impotence

  • Drug Class: PDE5 inhibitor
  • Indication: for controlling the manifestations of erectile dysfunction in men above 18

General Description

This product is an improved and strengthened version of the well-known blue pill, which enjoys the loyalty and trust of millions of men across the globe. Namely, it stands out due to an increased dose of Sildenafil — 100mg. As a result, this innovative formulation is potent enough to take under control erectile dysfunction of any degree (from mild to severe). Furthermore, patients report that, with Viagra Professional, the therapeutic effect starts quicker and lasts significantly longer.

As for its action, it intensifies a response of an organism to sexual stimulation. By blocking an enzyme, which is involved in blood flow regulation, it increases blood tension in the penis, which pushes its erection. This drug is aimed at helping those males who experience problems with a too weak or short erection. The duration of its effect depends on one’s individual metabolic peculiarities. However, on average, it lasts for about 5 hours — enough to enjoy a couple of intercourses in a row.

As a rule, it is capable of normalizing one’s sex life from the very first tablet — one does not have to wait for a cumulative effect. However, depending on the individual peculiarities, one’s organism may need a few tries to adjust to its action and respond appropriately.
