I am in my 40s and get erections effortlessly but lately find them hard to sustain. Recently my urologist suggested I take Viagra and it worked. Actually its effect remained for more than 24 hours. My concern: will it be harmful in the long run? Or can you suggest something different?

  • Michael Castleman says:

    If there’s no medical reason that would prevent you from taking Viagra, it and the other erection drugs are pretty benign. You might experience headache or nasal congestion, but Viagra has been approved since 1998, and if there were any awful side effects, given the number of men who have tried it, they certainly would have shown up by now. So, no, Viagra is not harmful in the long run.

    However, its effects usually last four to six hours. If you’re feeling effects at 24 hours and don’t want that, you might ask your urologist about reducing your dose. Or you might try Levitra, the other short-acting erection drug.
