Recreational Viagra Isn’t a Thing

If you take Viagra and you don’t have erectile dysfunction, you won’t notice any results from taking “recreational” Viagra. Because that’s not how Viagra works.

Viagra works by stopping the chemical process that lets blood leave your erect penis. It doesn’t spontaneously cause erections. So the idea of a “raging uncontrollable boner” after popping the little blue pill just isn’t how Viagra works. Especially if you don’t have erectile dysfunction.

There’s just no such thing as “recreational Viagra.” If you take Viagra and you experience positive results—like a stronger, longer lasting erection, guess what?—you may have ED. And Viagra is working to help overcome issues with your blood flow or PDE5 levels.

Real Viagra Isn’t Like the Movies

Talk to a doctor if you notice results from taking Viagra without a prescription. Because erectile dysfunction can often be the first sign of more serious health issues like:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Nerve damage
  • Low testosterone
  • Depression

Also, never take Viagra without a prescription. Viagra has the potential for serious side effects and can have negative interactions with both prescription drugs and common over-the-counter medications and even natural supplements. Always talk to a doctor before taking Viagra.
