Effect of Medication

Generic Viagra is used to effectively treat erectile dysfunction (ED) or impotence in men.

Generic Viagra increases the body's ability to achieve and maintain an erection during sexual stimulation. It works by relaxing the blood vessels in the penis, so as sexual excitement increases, the increased blood flow stimulates an erection.

Generic Viagra is a treatment and not a cure for ED.

Generic Viagra does not protect you or your partner from sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV.

Generic Viagra does not increase your sex drive and will only work if you are sexually stimulated.
