Questions & Answers

Viagra (sildenafil citrate) is a widely known prescription drug that's used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, or impotency in men. Men who have erectile dysfunction are unable to achieve and maintain a normal erection. Viagra helps increase the flow of blood to the penis, allowing the patient to engage in sexual relations with his partner.
