People with erectile dysfunction due to the use of antipsychotic drugs for the treatment of schizophrenia and similar other mental disorders have reasons to cheer, as Viagra is established to be an effective medicament to overcome the dysfunction. According to a press release in the American Journal of Psychiatry, the use of Viagra (sildenafil) can effectively improve the erection of an erectile dysfunction patient with history of antipsychotic drug use.
The study was conducted by a team of medical scientists led by Dr.Rajesh Gopalakrishnan in the renowned Christian Medical College, Vellore, India. Dr. Rajesh and his colleagues closely studied the effect of Viagra on 32 married men with erectile dysfunction caused due to the use of antipsychotic medicines, in a placebo-controlled situation. The study gave very interesting and encouraging results for the ED patients.
The study found that the patients who were given Viagra had an incredibly significant improvement in terms of their erection, as they were able to increase the frequency of their erection, and the duration too. And the patients could have a more satisfying sexual intercourse than before. Further clinical assessment and a deeper examination of the study revealed that Viagra (sildenafil) can triple the chances of a successful erection and a fulfilling sexual enjoyment in antipsychotic-induced erectile dysfunction patients.
Another startling fact that came of the research was the great tolerance level of Viagra in the patients. The report also said that there were no incidents of discontinuation during the course of the treatment. Other than the commonly occurring mild side effects like headaches and a stuffy nose, no serious side effects of Viagra use could be seen in the patients too.
The recent finding is quite akin to other published reports and studies on the use of Viagra in the treatment of patients with erectile dysfunction caused due to mixed reasons. Say, it is not very different from the study of Viagra use in a patient, who has spinal cord injuries and diabetes as the causes of ED.
Erectile dysfunction due to the use of antipsychotic medicaments can often lead to a number of problems because of its poor medical conformity. However, the path breaking research has given a new impetus to the treatment of erectile dysfunction patients with mental disorders like schizophrenia, giving a ray of hope to the patients.
What is Generic Viagra?
Generic Viagra is an effective treatment for male erectile dysfunction, or ED. This is also known as impotence. Generic Viagra is a little blue pill you take only when you want to have sex. Generic Viagra helps men consistently get and keep an erection when they become sexually stimulated.
How does Generic Viagra work?
Generic Viagra enables men with ED to respond to sexual stimulation. When a man is sexually excited, the arteries in his penis relax and widen. This allows more blood to flow into the penis. The increased blood flow causes the penis to become hard and erect. The veins that normally carry blood away from the penis then become compressed. This restricts the blood flow out of the penis. With more blood flowing in and less flowing out, the penis enlarges, resulting in an erection. Sometimes the nerves or blood vessels that are part of this process don’t work properly. If this happens, a man may not be able to get or keep an erection. Generic Viagra increases blood flow to the penis, so that when a man is sexually excited, he can consistently get and keep an erection. When he is done having sex, the erection goes away.
