Pfizer did what no other pharmaceutical company could do. In a matter of days millions of satisfied couples could not thank Pfizer enough for the magic blue pill called Viagra.
Viagra was the first approved prescription pill for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). Pfizer patented Viagra in 1996 and the FDA approved it in 1998. The latent qualities of Sildenafil citrate were discovered accidentally when in one of the clinical trials, some of the impotent men achieved erection upon consuming Sildenafil – which was till then unsuccessfully used to treat angina.
The discovery unleashed a revolution in the medical fraternity, which so far considered ED as untreatable by oral pills. The ease with which people got treated made it an instant hit in every part of the globe. The success of Viagra prompted other pharma majors to invest great amounts in further improving the ED-treatment. Levitra and Cialis have added charm in the bullish market.
The sexual health never had it so good. The attention that it got in the recent years has led to the belief in permanent cure of the disease.

With the success of Viagra, there is an increasing trend of counterfeit and fake drugs being supplied to the gullible patients, who are confused like a baby who is just given five ice creams in one go. The latest fad to join the list is the trend of online pharmacy. These pharmacies lure the users with attractive prices. Online Viagra is also available at drastically reduced prices. Before you buy Viagra online, a reality check about the pharmacy and the laws of your country is always advised. Don’t get conned in the dot com world!
