Yes, well, my doctor prescribed it when I questioned her about trying that aid they advertise on TV for women. When you read the package insert it does explain that you may not feel results the first time, but not to be discouranged. The doctor told me take 1/2, nothing twice then I took a whole one. I have low blood pressure in comparison to the norm, and viagra was originally meant to be a med for high blood pressure!!! So, when I took it I did feel a bit light-headed. (Imagine that, hey doc, I don't know about the high blood pressure part, but guess what I can do again?!!) lol
What the viagra does is simply increase the flow of blood to the genital area, causing us to become more sensitive, as the doc put it, "like when we were teenagers" My problem wasn't lack of desire, it was lack of response. it says it will work about 20 mins after taking it and last 4 hours. For me, it's between 1/2 to 1-1/2 hours window of effectiveness,
Try again and good luck.
