Viagra is a well known and commonly used drug around the world. Viagra is used to treat erectile dysfunction as well as pulmonary arterial hypertension. Common side effects are sometime seen in people in the form of headaches or heartburn. Overall the drug is very safe if used correctly and for the right purpose. It has been around for years and has worked wonders for couples all over the world.
In South Africa, unlike some other countries, you can actually buy the drug online. It is only about 10-12 dollars per pill. They ship fast and have guaranteed delivery. This is great for the people of South Africa as the availability of this safe drug is very good. Apparently as well, the drug is used a lot by underage kids and young adults as a recreational drug. They like the effects it has on them and like to abuse them. They really should not be doing this because they do not really know what they are really getting themselves in to. Drugs should never be abused for any reason, but you could say that this is a side effect of the drug having those wanted effects.
The fact that it is available online so easily and affordably in South Africa makes this an even more dark subject. Teens and young adults alike can simply log on to the web and purchase these viagra pills in bulk or by their own in small quantities. These drugs then get easily abused. I think if they were behind the counter like in most other countries, things would be better, at least in terms of stopping abuse by teens and young adults. Overall though it is a great drug and its great that it is available in South Africa (SA) online. Viagra works by expanding blood vessels in your body. This allows each blood vessel on its own to independently expand its ability to carry and move blood around the body. As a result this stops erectile dysfunction because it allows more blood to reach all of your organs, one of those being the penis. If an erection ever lasted longer than four or so hours though, you are supposed to contact a doctor, as this could be a serious and possibly life threatening problem.
This is not a huge problem in south Africa though because people tend to use it with drinking. This causes many of its own serious problems of course though, and something needs to be done to look more into how Viagra should be handled. If you were to go to South Africa anytime soon, I would advise against buying any amount of the drug, unless of course your old and you actually have some form of erectile dysfunction or pulmonary arterial hypertension, which you might and should talk to your doctor very soon you know. I think that with proper follow up and a lot of work, the abuse will stop. Other than all of that however, Viagra is not a problem in other countries because you can not buy it online. So this needs to be fixed in order to combat these problems.
