What You Need To Know About the Purported Benefits of ExtenZe For Erectile Dysfunction

ExtenZe is a brand name of Viagra which was developed by Pfizer Inc., New York City, USA. Its active ingredient sildenafil citrate (Viagra) is a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor approved for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED).

The main side effects associated with Viagra include: increased blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, and death. However, there are other possible side effects such as: dizziness; nausea; headache; muscle pain or weakness; nervousness or anxiety; insomnia; blurred vision or double vision; decreased sexual desire or performance.

Some studies have shown that taking Viagra may increase the risk of developing certain types of cancer including prostate cancer and lung cancer.

It is not known whether these risks apply to men taking other drugs that act similarly to Viagra.

In addition, some patients taking Viagra experience sexual dysfunction. These symptoms include difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection lasting longer than 3 hours, problems during penetration (painful sensations), and loss of interest in sexual activity. Some patients do not report any side effects at all while others develop severe side effects such as depression, suicidal thoughts, psychosis or even death. For this reason, it’s important to consult a physician before taking the medication.
