Viagra is in FDA Pregnancy Category B, meaning it’s not expected to harm a fetus, but no adequate studies have been carried out in pregnant women to prove it. Whoever told you that there was a coffee that has the same active ingredient (drug) as Viagra (sildenafil) was misinformed. There is no such thing. It’s not known if sildenafil is excreted in breast milk. Ask your doctor if it’s safe to breastfeed while taking Viagra.
The prosecution, of course, had science on their side. In the lab at Pfizer, Callanan picks up a yellow envelope and removes an evidence bag from the Hitsman case. She opens it and pulls out a box of the infamous Malaysian counterfeit Viagra. To test the drug, Callanan scratches off a patch of blue coating, then scrapes out some of the white interior.
And, as always, there’s the money. Cheapest Viagra costs roughly $10 per single dose. Oral contraceptives cost women approximately $30 for a full month. Every public dollar spent on contraceptive services prevents $4 in public expenditures on unwanted or unplanned pregnancies. Every dose of Viagra subsidized by private or governmental insurers saves men from sexual frustration and… drumroll, please… the embarrassment of hearing their wives and girlfriends say, “That’s OK, honey, it happens to every guy, once in a while.”
Currently, there are three oral medications approved by the FDA for the treatment of erectile dysfunction: sildenafil (Viagra), vardenafil (Levitra), and tadalafil (Cialis). They block the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) and belong to a class called phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors. By inhibiting phosphodiesterase, Viagra enhances the effect of nitric oxide allowing for smooth muscle relaxation and increasing blood flow to specific areas of the body in the presence of sexual arousal or stimulation.
Men who wish for spontaneity may opt for Cialis, which may allow for successful intercourse up to 36 hours postdose, even though it takes longer to reach peak effect. The considerably longer duration of effect for Cialis will likely allow less frequent dosing and greater impulsiveness between partners, but also could potentially prolong adverse effects. Michael Douglas: Back in 2005, Douglas shared his praise for the blue pill for helping bridge the 25-year age gap with his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones. “God bless her that she likes older guys,” he told the Daily Mail.
