  • Classification: PDE5 inhibitor

Overall Description of Viagra Super Active

It is a novel version of globally famous Viagra, yet, it is provided with a bunch of significant advantages:

  • It is produced in the form of soft gel capsules, which are easier to swallow.
  • Due to its pharmaceutical form, it is quicker to dissolve and start acting.
  • Its effect arrives about 10 minutes after an intake.
  • The dose of the active ingredient is high enough — 100mg.
  • It is effective for varying degrees of impotence (including severe forms).

Now, let us find out how it acts. It helps one’s body effectively respond to sexual stimulation. To be more precise, it is intended for those men whose erections are too weak or are not long enough to reach an orgasm and satisfy a partner. Its action is based on an increase in blood pressure in a penis. As a result, it makes erections harder and longer for the period when it stays in one’s body — for 5–6 hours approximately. Sure, one can have several intercourses within this period. Afterward, a man needs to administer a pill every time he wants to have sex. But, one must not take more than one dose per day. It is prohibited for the sake of safety.

As you’ve already understood, one should not take this medication daily — only before sex. It does not accumulate in the organism. Meanwhile, we must note that, in some cases, one may fail to feel any effect after the first try. Based on an individual reaction of the organism to the active substance, there may be a need for a few tries.

Safety Measures

  • Do not use this med without going through a medical investigation and obtaining a prescription. It is dangerous to utilize it without your doctor’s monitoring and guidance.
  • When discussing the use of Viagra Super Active with your doctor, be sure to warn him if you are allergic to Sildenafil or other medications or foods.
  • Mind that this active substance can be also included in other meds like Revatio. You must never combine two medicines containing Sildenafil unless your doctor approves that.
  • Do not mix Viagra Super Active with other medications for treating impotence, regardless of their dosage or composition. It is dangerous for your health and may lead to fatal consequences.
  • Do not have more than one dose of Viagra Super Active within one day.
  • Do not increase a single dose without discussing that with your doctor.
  • Remember that this medication can cause varied side effects, including dizziness and even fainting, hence you must not drive or get involved in any other activities which require increased attention and quick reaction.
  • You should not combine it with alcohol. Or you must at least strive to minimize the amount of such drinks. Alcohol may intensify such side effects as dizziness and headaches.
  • Cannabis is also forbidden. In case you need it for medical reasons, turn to your doctor for recommendations.

Probable Side Effects

Important! You must discuss such risks with your doctor beforehand and receive corresponding recommendations. In any case, you must call an ambulance if you notice any symptoms, which you believe may put your life in danger. As for other side effects, you must also warn your doctor about them.

  • Most frequent: headache, flashes, lightheadedness, nausea, pains in the back.
  • Less frequent: rhinitis, fever, problems with sleep, skin rash.
  • Most rare: angina, heart attacks, sight/hearing loss, an increase in blood sodium, a decrease in blood sugar.

We must also warn you that there is another specific side effect — priapism. This term is used for a prolonged erection, which lasts a few hours — for more than 4. Although such a condition may seem not so serious, it may lead to injuries. Thus, if you notice it, turn for medical help immediately.

Mixing Viagra Super Active with Other Meds

  • The key rule for the safe use of any medication — you should inform your doctor about all the drugs and food supplements you take on a regular basis so that he can evaluate and eliminate the risks.
  • Yet, there is a list of drugs you must avoid combining with Viagra Super Active:
  • nitrates;
  • alpha-blockers (they can be used after the dose is adjusted by your doctor);
  • Riociguat;
  • any other meds for ED, including those containing Sildenafil.

Mixing with Foods

  • In general, it is allowed to administer Viagra Super Active both prior to and after a meal. That does not influence the safety or effectiveness of the treatment.
  • Many patients who have disorders on the side of the digestive system take it with food to minimize the risk of indigestion and other similar side effects.
  • However, it is advisable to avoid high-fat and heavy food as it may slow down the absorption of the active substance. As a result, one may notice that the therapeutic effect of the drug comes later and is less potent. Besides, there is a risk that the effect will be less durable.
  • Another important warning — it is recommended to avoid grapefruits even in small quantities. There is a risk that this product will raise the absorption of Sildenafil in the blood, as a result, its levels will become extreme and provoke such severe side effects as low blood tension, dizziness, and fainting.

Usage Rules

The regimen of use of Viagra Super Active is flexible — it is up to a patient to decide when to administer it as it depends on the activeness of his sex life. According to doctors, it should be taken about 5–10 minutes before the start of intercourse. Then, a man must proceed with sexual stimulation to provoke an erection.

A standard dose of this compound is 100 mg. And that is a maximum daily dose.

As it is produced in the form of gel capsules, one should administer it orally and drink a glass of water afterward to ensure decent absorption.

Overdose: What to Do?

As a rule, an overdose manifests itself through typical side effects characteristic of this specific drug. Yet, they usually develop to an extreme degree. So, the most common signs are severe dizziness, fainting, heart problems (pains or rhythm irregularities). If you suppose that you or your partner has an overdose, do not doubt and turn for urgent medical help.
