Overdosing on Viagra may sound like a joke or something from a comedy show, but the reality of it is not so funny. As with many drugs, it is possible to overdose on Viagra if you do not use it wisely. If you are using drugs for problems with erectile dysfunction then do follow the instructions given with the pack and those explained to you by your doctor.
But my dosage is very low – will it really matter if I take more than one?
This is not recommended. Whatever strength of pill your doctor has prescribed, he will have done so for a reason. Yes, the drug you are taking, such as Viagra, does come in a varying degree of strengths but if you need a higher dosage then your doctor should be the judge of this and not you. If you take more pills than you should, the side effects and repercussions could be unpleasant and even potentially dangerous.
What might an overdose of Viagra do to me?
All you need to do is go onto your favourite search engine like Google or similar, and type in ‘Viagra overdose’ to get some shocking examples what too much Viagra can do! Whether these stories are all true is another thing, but horror stories of penis amputation and painful erections lasting for days are only too common.
Of course, many of these cases have occurred when people have purchased Viagra (Sildenafil) online without a prescription. Very often drugs purchased in this way do not come with dosage instructions and what they actually contain is anybody’s guess. In less extreme cases, you may still experience a feeling of sickness, pains in your chest and an irregular heartbeat. Put all of this together and you have all of the ingredients for a very scary and dangerous situation.
What should I do if I mistakenly take too much Viagra?
An accidental overdose may result in unpleasant symptoms and a feeling of being unwell. If this happens, or if you have an erection which is just not going away, consult a medical expert as soon as you can. A long-term erection (priapism) left untreated for over 24 hrs. can potentially result in permanent damage to the penis or even failure to achieve a normal erection afterwards.
So as you can see, overdosing on Viagra is no joke. All drugs need to be treated with respect and Viagra is one such example. Because it deals with such a sensitive and delicate part of the body, any mistreatment by over indulging on Viagra or indeed any similar drug is definitely a no-go area.
If you are thinking about taking Viagra but have not seen your doctor, do make an appointment. It makes no difference whether you intentionally overdose on Viagra or do so unintentionally – the results are the same. The internet is full of websites offering Viagra with fast shipment and at very cheap prices but don’t be fooled; the chances of this being the identical safe and trusted drug as the one given by your family doctor are slim.
Whether you visit your G.P. at your local surgery, consult a specialist at a Sexual Health Clinic or even attend hospital as an emergency patient if you have overdosed, get advice and get it fast. You cannot afford to take chances with your health no matter how much you think large doses of Viagra are the thing for you.
