5 Things You Might Not Know About Viagra
US News ^ | 03/27/2008 | Lindsay Lyon

Posted on 03/28/2008 1:35:43 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

Ten years ago today, Viagra got the Food and Drug Administration's stamp of approval. Here are some facts about the little blue pill:

• Roughly 1 billion Viagra tablets have been doled out since the drug debuted.

• An average of about three Viagra tablets were dispensed each second between its launch and the end of last year.

• Thirty-five million men worldwide have used Viagra, which remains the most commonly prescribed drug for erectile dysfunction.

• The drug has been evaluated in more than 120 clinical trials involving more than 16,000 men.

• Viagra was also tested in about 3,000 women as a potential treatment for sexual arousal disorders. But the trials were "inconclusive," and Pfizer announced in 2004 that it had stopped them.

Statistics provided by Pfizer

I used to roll over and fall out of bed before I started using Viagra.

Add a tablet to your Heart Attack First Aid Kit in your wallet. It expands blood vessels. That’s not a joke. Also, you might get lucky.

You can add that chasing it with beer can cause your skin to turn a light shade of blue.

You're smurfing me!

Thats what we called the guy who did this and told us about it. Sad thing is that he told us it took him four or five times to realize the combination that was making him turn blue.

Good evening.
“Those 4-hour long erections keep the ER nurses laughing!”

Many years ago I had a customer disappear for awhile. When he returned, the poor guy looked like death warmed over.

He had just suffered through several days of priapism and told us, when we stopped laughing, that he would have gladly eaten a bullet to get rid of the pain.

The jokes became a little hollow the more we looked at his face, but it was just not possible to avoid laughing.

That's great...

Adult dosing for pulmonary hypertension is 20mg tid at 4-6 hr intervals.. Assuming avg body weight of an adult male to be 75-100kg..That works out to be 0.6mg/kg to 0.8mg/kg.(0.27mg/lb-0.36mg/lb)

If you crush and suspend 1 tab 25mg in 25ml of diluent gives 1mg/ml. Hope this helps.

What’s the big deal about 4-hour erections? I’m pretty sure I had an erection from my junior year of high school till I graduated from college.

Can't hunt anything around here after December.

Can't fish until April.

Can't smoke any tobacco product anywhere.

Can't risk going to a bar.

Can't just drive around because of the price of fuel and the only folks that seem to have an unlimited supply of fuel are the "Click It or Ticket" Nazis.

Anyone contemplating a barbecue hasn't checked the price of beef, pork, or even chicken lately.

Not a whole lot of entertainment available on TV unless you're some sort of sports fan.

That only leaves one thing............"Viva Viagra!"

We laughed so hard when one of my friends told us that I think everyone started spitting their drinks out. The Smurf named Horny jokes flew and he has yet to live it down. Sad thing is that he was late 20’s when we was using it as an enhancement, he didn’t really need it....sure, TMI.

Those 4-hour long erections keep the ER nurses laughing!

Someone mentioned that warning from the commercials the other day, "If you experience an erection lasting more than four hours seek immediate medical attention." What everyone said was if they had that happen they'd immediately go buy lottery tickets. It's obviously their lucky day!

i havent seen it in any medical book, but then again i havent looked. Guess they wont be using it in an ad campagn unless it starts out “feeling a little blue...?” and it turn out to be one of those class action lawsuit scum-sucking shark law firms.

No, actually, it’s an ad. It really is a product of the Pfizer marketing department to promote Viagra.

Just think, someday you may be sueing an ad agency for ripping off your idea. Unfortunately, their legal representation is already in the bag...

Chuck Norris doesn’t need Viagra.

Norris takes flaccidity pills.

He actually gets the ones that roll off of Jack Bauer's nightstand.

Well, way before Viagra, Harvey and Eleanor were watching the miracle-working evangelist on the T.V. After healing folks on stage of all sorts of ailments, he gave the call to join in at home while he said a prayer.

Ol’ Harvey eased up out of his easy-chair and hobbled over to the T.V. - laying one hand on the T.V., and putting the other down his pants.

Eleanor saw what was going on and yelled over - “Didn't you hear him right Harvey? He said he could heal the sick, not raise the dead!”

The part that I wonder about is how so many men end up with ED - has something happened or has this been the case for years and years? And, the advertisements seem to use younger looking men - I can understand ‘something’ happening with age to result in the need for this, but what’s the deal with younger men?
