Theraputic Sildenafil Citrate (Viagra) increases blood flow to fine capillaries. It was use for impotence was actually discovered by accident. During medication trials as an aid for people with heart disease, almost every male in the test group came back after taking the medication and commented on the fact that it really increased or enhanced erections. Eureka!! The reason one takes it nightly is to maintain blood supply to the fine tissue while you are healing. The pump does the additional work, so its recommended you do the two together. Once in the morning and once at night, sounds like a lot of work I know but you get into a routine. Funny but I do it while brushing my teeth, always have been a multi-tasker.
Sildenafil Citrate is not covered under any insurance I have found. The most economical way to acquire the medication is have your Dr prescribe 100 mg tablets, then purchase a pill cutter from your pharmacy and divide into four pieces. That way your are getting the dose of 25mg daily.
You can also purchase the medication through Canadian Pharmacy on the web for about 1/5 you pay in the US.
