If you are a man who has difficulty getting or sustaining an erection, you undoubtedly feel miserable. Erectile instability leads to all kinds of performance-anxiety and self-esteem issues.

No one can dispute the powerful impact of Viagra. If you can believe it, the CIA even used gifts of Viagra to win friends in Afganistan, according to a 2008 article by Joby Warrick in the “Washington Post.”

In 2010, actor Michael Douglas talked about using Viagra to keep up with his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, who is 25 years younger than he.

Make no mistake, Viagra and other ED medicines have been very helpful to millions and millions of couples.

Despite much that has been written about the possible dangers of men using and misusing Viagra, there is no doubt that for men who have erectile problems and who want to have sex, on Viagra has proved to be a blessing.

But here are three important questions to ask yourself before you use Viagra or any other ED drug.

First, have you gotten checked out by your physician?

Remember, there are multiple causes for erectile dysfunction — and even though you can probably find a way to get Viagra or other ED drugs without a prescription, you need to see your physician for an examination before you begin to medicate yourself.

Don't get Viagra on the Internet or borrow it from a friend. You could have an important physical problem, such as heart disease or diabetes, and your medical issues should be evaluated and treated first.

Second, even if they are medically appropriate, ED medicines can’t always solve the problem.
For instance, how severe is your anxiety? If it is intense, the best thing to do is talking to a certified sex therapist, then considering when or if to add ED drugs.

If anxiety is sky high, the drugs may not work initially, and this just creates more anxiety, leading to a vicious circle.

Better to get a little educated advice and help from a professional, to give the drugs the best shot at helping you.

Thirdly, if you are in a relationship, don’t take any ED medications unless you’re sure your partner wants to have intercourse with you. If your relationship has been lacking in either emotional or sexual intimacy over the last months or even years, it is quite possible that your new and improved erection will not be warmly received.
