Viagra & Blindness Warning

by: Jags Parker
Viagra & Viagra is synonymous with popularity. Its sales are increasing in leaps and bounds with each passing day. Ever since its existence, it has been able to lure millions of people world wide under its trap. A large number of people are attracted to its efficiency in treating an important sexual ailment – erectile dysfunction (ED). 

Though this wonder drug has witnessed immense popularity, but in recent times it was also surrounded by a number of controversies. A small number of its users have turned blind after consuming the wonder pill. All of them suffered from a swelling of the optic nerve within 36 hours of taking Viagra for ED. 

The condition, known as non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), causes a rapid reduction of vision and in the most serious cases, leads to blindness. NAION is considered one of the most common causes of sudden vision loss in older people. Its risk factors include diabetes and heart disease, which are also two of the leading causes of impotence. 
But Pfizer, the makers of the blue magic drug which has been used by more than 20 million men since its launch in 1998, said the cases were a coincidence. They’ve termed these accusations as baseless. According to them, the popularity of Viagra is due to its immense health benefits. It has been able to cure millions of ED patients worldwide and brought their sexual life back on track. 
But in spite of all these, some consumer advocacy groups are asking government to add serious warning labels on Viagra and other ED drugs for the benefits of its users. This positive step can keep its abusers at a distance. It will help in warning its users about its side effects and prove immensely beneficial for its genuine users. 
So, the proper usage of this drug can revive the dull and uneventful life of aged people forever.

  1. Viagra, the FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) approved anti-impotence drug is composed of specific inactive ingredients such as anhydrous dibasic calcium phosphate, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate et al and altogether the medicine contains sildenafil as the chief component. But the erectile dysfunction medicine viagra would yield effective results only when taken in accordance with the instructions of the doctor.

  2. Impotence - What’s Love Got To Do With It?

    Was it Woody Allen who said “love is like playing bridge, if you’re no good at it you had better have a good hand?”
    That may well be true for a small percentage of the population, but for the 20% plus of all men who suffer erectile dysfunction, a good hand is not much use when you cannot get wood, Woody.
    It is a racing certainty that not all sufferers are as forthright as Mr Allen and many simply suffer in silence. Embarrassed by the machismo their peers express whenever the issue of love making arises. These age old jokes made at the expense of impotent need to be addressed.
    It would be unrealistic to expect the ignorant to just stop because they should. Even if they suffer themselves they probably blame the drink or the wife’s looks or sit up all night in front of the TV rather than face an inconvenient bedtime truth.
    Well, not all is lost even for those that cannot gather the courage to visit the doctor and get prescription medications that give improved performance for 50% of those that take them. There is now a health supplement that is clinically tested and has proven successful for 84% of all those who took it- Butea Superba. Never heard of it? Well now you have, so pass it on.
    Available under the brand name HealthyED, Butea Superba has exactly the same effect on men as prescription blue pills. The big difference being it is a natural herb which you take as a daily supplement and it works all the time rather than in short bursts, unlike the chemically enhanced drugs contained in the main commercial pills promoted so heavily by the big drugs companies.
    You can read all the clinical trial information on the HealthyED site along with details of how it works and why.
    The most important thing about Butea is that you tell a friend or as many friends as you can. Maybe you will be helping someone who is just too embarrassed to help themselves. www.healthyed.co.uk
