As with all prescription medications, Viagra is not always appropriate for every patient. This is why taking the necessary precautions is very important. Some people will not be eligible to take the medication due to underlying health conditions or other medications they are taking.

When you have an online consultation with a doctor, you should disclose any information about your health so that we can ensure the medication will be safe and effective for you to use. Here are some of the factors that may affect the safety of the medication for you.

Before taking Viagra

There are a number of precautions that must be taken before you consider the use of Viagra for impotence. You should be sure that your condition is not a symptom of an underlying medical problem and that the erectile dysfunction is physical, rather than psychological. During your medical consultation you will be asked a series of questions to ensure that Viagra is the most appropriate treatment for you.

You will also be asked to disclose any other information regarding your health, as prescription and non-prescription medications can interact with the active ingredient in Viagra (sildenafil) to make it less effective.

It is also very important to ensure that you are in adequate health for sexual intercourse, as some men with heart conditions will be advised to abstain in order to limit the risk of suffering from a heart attack. In this case, you will not be prescribed the medication.

Risk groups: Contraindicated:
  • The elderly
  • Men who suffer from a decreased or damaged liver function
  • Men who suffer from a disease that effects the heart or blood vessels
  • Men suffering from bleeding disorders such as haemophilia
  • Men with an active peptic ulcer
  • Men who have a physical abnormality to the penis
  • After recently suffering from a heart attack

When taking Viagra

When taking Viagra, be sure not to take any medications that you have not mentioned to your doctor. It is also important that you don't increase the dosage that has been prescribed to you without first consulting a physician. Do not take Viagra tablets that have passed their expiry date, and ensure you store the tablets in a cool place out of reach of children.
