News Story Article Report: Viagra & Modern Medicine In An Age Of Medical Miracles!

This is what The UK Medix medical team had to report: We truly do live in an age of medical miracles. Modern medicine has evolved to the point at which it is finally possible to remedy health challenges that have plagued Mankind, literally since our earliest days as a species.

One of the most significant of these achievements has been the discovery of a treatment for sexual impotence in males, clinically referred to as Erectile Dysfunction (ED). In 1998, after extensive research and clinical testing, the Federal Drug Administration approved the Pfizer company’s application to market an ED treatment drug named Viagra (sildenafil citrate).

Just as Botox (Allergen, 2002) is now commonly used to treat facial wrinkles and Minoxidil (Upjohn, 1984) and now Propecia and Finasteride prescription drugs has become an accepted treatment for baldness, Viagra is the drug-of-choice for treating impotence. All three are excellent examples of how science can redress signs of aging. However, while hair loss and creases on the forehead might be considered unattractive and undesirable, ED can have a major, very negative effect on a man’s life.

The loss of intimacy and the damage that can do to a man’s self-confidence can be nothing short of devastating. As intimacy wanes between a man and his partner, it strains the relationship in its entirety.

Worse yet, the man knows there is no point in looking into forming a new relationship with someone else, because the problem will still be there and the outcome will be no different. The emotional pain can be literally too much to bear (many scholars believe that Ernest Hemingway committed suicide because he could not come to grips with his own impotence).

Before the discovery of Viagra, it was generally accepted that with advancing age, sooner for some and later for others, sexual performance (but not the desire to engage in sexual activity) would diminish and eventually vanish. That no longer has to be the case.

Viagra makes it possible for many men (even those more than 60 years of age) to achieve an erection when desired. Moreover, they can often maintain that erection for far, far longer than they could when they were in their teens and twenties. Hundreds of thousands of relationships have been saved (and probably more than a few ruined) by men who suddenly have the ability to perform for hours whenever the urge strikes them.

To understand how Viagra works, one first has to understand the mechanics of how an erection develops. The process starts when specific hormones cause the body to release Nitric Oxide (chemical symbol – NO) into an area on the underside of the penis called the corpus cavernosum. The Nitrous Oxide activates an enzyme named Guanylate Cyclase, which then creates locally increased levels of Cyclic Guanosine Monophosphate (cGMP) producing smooth-muscle relaxation.

This process allows blood to fill the corpus cavernosum with blood and the penis then becomes erect. Viagra acts to specifically inhibit the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5), which enhances the normal interaction of NO/cGMP. In short, Viagra simply facilitates normal processes in the bodies of men whose bodies are either producing too much PDE5 or too little NO.

Viagra is available in 25mg, 50mg and 100mg dosages by prescription only. It is unlikely to be available over-the-counter (OTC), meaning without a doctor’s prescription, at any time in the foreseeable future because of the dangers of possible side-effects. Known minor side-effects include headache, flushing, nausea, stuffy or runny nose, urinary tract infection and diarrhea. A small number of men, about 3%, have reported the loss of sight in one eye (non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy, acronym – NAION), caused by the sudden loss of blood supply to the optic nerve.

A similar number of men reported the “seeing blue” phenomenon, in which they said they saw everything with a blue tint and sometimes experienced an accompanying sensitivity to light. Men who are at increased risks for these side-effects include those who have heart disease, are over 50 years old, have diabetes, have high blood pressure, have high cholesterol, smoke and or have certain eye problems.

It is especially important that patients have extended and frank discussions with the prescribing physician to review ALL of the other medications the patient may be taking and any recreational drugs that may be involved, especially Amyl Nitrate (aka “poppers”).
