Columbia Orthopaedic Group is happy to announce their doctors prescribe Sildenafil for their patients who experience erectile dysfunction.  This medication treats men with impotence by increasing their blood flow to the penis during sexual activity.  Impotence or erectile dysfunction is defined as a person’s inability to sustain or even obtain an erection. This condition can be very frustrating for some men as it leads to an unsatisfactory sex life.

Men suffering from erectile dysfunction should talk to their doctor about Sildenafil to see if it is a treatment for them.  This drug is heavily sought after and popular, because it is less expensive than the brand name of Viagra.  However, contrary to popular belief, Sildenafil is not a generic version of Viagra, rather it is an active ingredient in Viagra which is why people refer to it as a generic.  Regardless, Sildenafil is a proven product and ensures optimum flow of blood to the penis by blocking a chemical that reduces the flow.  An improved erection is a direct result of more blood flow.

Recommended Dosage

The recommended dosage of Sildenafil depends on a number of various factors, which should be discussed with your physician.  Before prescribing the medication with the right dosage, your doctor will take into account your age, medications you are currently on, and any medical conditions you presently suffer from. Once you are prescribed the medication, it is highly recommended not to adjust the dosage of the drug on your own.  Sildenafil must be taken at least an hour before sexual activity, though many doctors recommend dosage of 50mg to be taken between 30 minutes to 4 hours before sexual activity.

Consult Your Doctor

Before you start using and taking Sildenafil, it is imperative to talk to your doctor to make sure you are healthy enough to take it, as well as asking any questions about heart disease or heart rhythm problems.  Or if you have any health issues or a history of liver disease, blood vessel issues, high blood pressure, allergies, or any other condition that leads to erectile dysfunction. This is especially important because sexual activity can place extra strain on your heart.

Your doctor will also know if any of your medications could cause potential drug interactions.  For example, if you take any nitrate drugs for heart problems, taking Sildenafil might cause a sudden drop in blood pressure, possibly triggering a heart attack or stroke.  Therefore it is necessary to keep your doctor informed of even the non-prescription, over the counter medications such as herbal supplements, vitamins, and antacids.


It is important to choose the best doctors and pharmacy possible to discuss the possibility of taking and filling the prescription for Sildenafil.  There are many online pharmacies claiming to offer Sildenafil online, however, you must have a prescription for it.  That is why it is important to choose a reliable and reputable health care provider.  Columbia Orthopaedic Group has a lot of customer testimonials to find out the level of service and quality of drugs supplied by them.

When prescribed properly, Sildenafil can help you fulfill and satisfy your love life, making it possible to reach an erection with no struggle or strain related to erectile dysfunction.  The pill takes effect within an hour, and typically lasts around six hours.  However should you start to experience side effects such as, change in vision, ringing in ears, chest pain, shortness of breath, light headedness, or swelling in hands, ankles, and feet, stop taking Sildenafil and call your doctor immediately.

Sildenafil is a modern day medicine for impotent men that alleviates erectile dysfunction.  Contact Columbia Orthopaedic Group to discuss this option for you with one of their doctors.
