The use of this medication is restricted for patients who have drug allergies and should be taken only under medical supervision. To purchase Viagra if you are taking nitrate drugs for heart problems or chest pain is absolutely forbidden. This includes nitroglycerin, isosorbide mononitrate, isosorbide dinitrate or some recreational-type drugs such as amyl nitrate or nitrite, also known as poppers. You should also let your doctor know about all the prescription drugs and over-the-counter meds that you normally use, in order to avoid serious side effects of Viagra. This includes herbal products, mineral, vitamins and drugs prescribed by other doctors or physicians. You should never begin taking a new medication without telling your doctor first.

 

Moreover, you should avoid drinking lots of alcohol beverages, which might increase some of the side effects of Viagra. Do not use other drugs to treat erectile dysfunction without first consulting to your doctor. Get Viagra exactly and only as it was prescribed for you. Do not take it in larger doses or for a longer period than it was recommended by your doctor at the beginning of your treatment. Follow the directions on your prescription label to avoid unwanted problems. Finally, you can start enjoying a renewed, healthier and more satisfying sexual life without worries about eventual generic Viagra side effects!
