Sounds Too Good to be True?

You know how it works. It usually is…

blue pill side effectsSimply by taking a pill 30min or so before sexual intercourse, a man will have an erection and therefore sexual intercourse with his partner for up to several hours. However, its use can also result in serious illnesses and in extreme cases even death. Such is often the case, when people want too much of a good thing.

In the UK an estimated 4-6 million men suffer from impotence. This condition involves occasional or lasting problems with erections. Worldwide the scale of this problem is as large as 140 million men.

Help for those affected is available in the form of branded, prescription potency treatments. These treatments contains active substances, which allow the erectile issue in the penis to fill with blood during sexual arousal by blocking blood outflow.

As a consequence, an erection is produced that makes intercourse possible for many hours. Many men now swear by this little wonder pill, and the manufacturer had a turnover of almost two billion dollars from the potency pill over the last year alone.

Interestingly, the patent for Viagra expired in summer 2013 so expect more and more cheaper and legal imitations to appear on the market. One such imitation is White Viagra, launched by Pfizer itself.

Potentially Dangerous Side-Effects

nasty side effectsLike every drug, this type also has side-effects and these are not to be underestimated!

It is strongly recommended that people who have previously had a heart attack or stroke immediately stop the use of this type of potency treatment.

However, even for healthy men, branded potency treatments can be dangerous. This is especially the case when people want too much of a good thing, and therefore take a higher than recommended dose.

The three most serious side effects are

  1. a persistent erection known as priapism. As well as being painful, after six hours the penile tissues can become damaged, which can result in permanent impotence
  2. vision problems such as temporary colour changes, reported by 2.7%. Complete loss of vision has also been reported.
  3. sudden and total hearing loss.

    That is not all – other common side effects include

  4. headaches, reported by 16% of users
  5. indigestion (dyspepsia), reported by 6.5% of users
  6. dizziness, reported by 2.2% of users
  7. nausea, reported by 1.2%
  8. high blood pressure
  9. muscle pain
  10. flushing
  11. tiredness
  12. increased heart rate
  13. heart attack
  14. cerebral haemorrhages

 

Side Effect Statistics

    the real side effects aren’t as funny as this one!

    One in ten men has had one or more side effects of experiencing an erection through the use of branded potency treatments, even when using the recommended dose.

  • In the USA, more than twenty mostly elderly patients have died after the use of branded potency treatments. This is a small number in relative terms, given that hundreds of millions of blue pills have been consumed over the last 20 years. Nevertheless, however small, the number is absolute.
  • More and more frequently young men use the pill to encourage libido, mostly in combination with other drugs, which reduces their ability to have an erection in the long term. More blue pills are then used in order to counteract this, which potentially sets in motion a vicious cycle. This can result in severe negative consequences for the health of young men in both the short-term and long-term.

 

Be Careful Online!

be careful when buying drugs online

watch out for marketing promises!

Beware of any pills that are freely (without prescription!) available on the internet! It is thought that up to 50% of branded potency treatments that can be purchased on the internet contain contaminants, simply the wrong active substances or in incorrect doses.

Counterfeit branded potency treatments have been shown to contain anything from none to several times the recommended level of active substance, which can be lethal. This is often because the manufacturers of these counterfeit drugs are extremely profit-driven at the expense of the consumers’ health, have little or no scientific knowledge.

In addition to this, these counterfeit drugs are often produced in extremely unsanitary conditions. Some of the substances that have been found in counterfeit branded potency treatments tablets include blue printer ink, binding agents that prevent the tablet from being broken down in your body, and antibiotics which can result in an allergic reaction, diarrhoea and vomiting.

The lack of regulation (accountability, which country and so on..) for the safety of these drugs and legal framework to protect customers can be very, very dangerous for consumers.

It is all Worth It?

In summary, only you can decide if the risk is worth the reward.

In all honesty, I once bought some bodybuilding supplements online in the late 90s. The dosages were far higher than the recommendations and I got 24 hours of uncontrolled heart racing! That is why I am not going near dodgy and cheap products ever again.

If you are willing to risk your health, wellbeing and happiness for a few hours of good sex, then do it carefully, methodically and in an educated manner.

Personally, my view is that blue pills simply mask the underlying cause of impotence. Most commonly this is a lack of quality blood circulation. Again, they work by trapping blood in the penis rather than actually helping to put it in there in the first place.

I think it is far more effective (and holistically healthy!) to naturally improve blood inflow rather than reduce blood-outflow!!
