How Safe is Viagra?

The use of certain drugs to fend off impotence is no longer a big issue. In fact, this occurrence is already a constant in the lives of many males. Among the more popular among these pills is Viagra.

Viagra is the first oral pill to treat impotence.

Some people claim that Viagra is indeed a wonder pill that has helped them manage their impotence. Others, however, are more skeptical. They raise their eyebrows in amusement and critique the pill, saying that it is not safe and should not be bought over the counter. The latter group of people brought out our curiosity and thus we ask ourselves: how safe is Viagra?

Studies and experiences of men in the United States report that Viagra, indeed, is not a safe pill. In fact, it is known to cause blindness. Apparently, there is a certain ingredient used by the manufacturers that is called Phosphodiesterase or PDE, which increases the blood flow in the eye area, causing temporary blindness. Oftentimes, another case wherein the decrease in the blood supply to the optic nerve may also cause another devastating condition: permanent blindness.

The manufacturers of the said drug stand by their own product, asserting the fact that the drug has nothing to do with the cases of blindness that are attached with the said drug. However, it would be wise not to use the drug unless more studies prove or disprove whether it is indeed safe to use or not.
