Sildenafil is an active ingredient of Viagra and similar medication used to treat erectile dysfunction. According to NHS, It is effective, but it does require a prescription to use. Medication containing sildenafil comes in various forms including chewable tablets, tablets to be swallowed, and a liquid you drink.
Takbok #meerhoring does not contain sildenafil and requires no prescription, making it a very safe alternative for many men. Scroll down to read why.
In this article we dive into the details of sildenafil and offer alternative suggestions if you cannot, or don't want to, use products containing sildenafil.
How does sildenafil work
From NHS: Sildenafil belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors.
It temporarily increases blood flow to the penis when aroused, to help you get and maintain an erection. It typically takes 30-60 minutes to work. Like Takbok capsules, it requires stimulation to work.
Who can take sildenafil
Typically, men over 18 can take sildenafil. However, there are many men that cannot take it - and it doesn't play well with some medications. Anyone with a prescription can take it, because a medical doctor has cleared them to use it. You cannot buy it off a shelf or over the counter.
