Kamagra has gained some serious street reputation as a super pill to increase sexual performance. Mix that with Red Bull or any other energy drink and you will continue all night. This has been the common belief among men for years, but is it really safe to take those two together? This is what you should know.
What is Kamagra?
First things first, Kamagra has ultimately been discovered that the medication also increases blood flow to other parts of the body, including the penis. And it is commonly used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) and impotence in men, increasing blood flow down and thus obtaining and maintaining an erection when sexually aroused or stimulated.
How does it work?
The active ingredient in Kamagra is called sildenafil and the dose ranges from 25 mg to 100 mg per tablet. Keep in mind that it does not cause an erection alone. It should be taken with some form of sexual stimulation, whether visual, tactile or otherwise for an erection to occur. The effect of this pill varies from person to person, so it is the length of time it lasts in one’s system.
But in the general rule, Kamagra is intended to start working on most people around 30 minutes after taking the drug and working for 2 to 5 hours at a time.
What are the secondary effects?
Like any other pill, Kamagra has some side effects as well, although most men will not experience any. If side effects occur, they are usually mild and brief. They include the following:
- Nasal congestion
- Redness of the face
- Visual symptoms such as redness, pain, or tenderness
- Muscle pains
- Nasal blockage or discharge
- Ringing in the ears or dizziness
Is it OK to take Kamagra and Red Bull together?
There are limited studies on the adverse reaction between Red Bull and Kamagra, but the energy drink has been under scrutiny because of its potential health risks such as heart palpitations, seizures, hypertension and even death. Denmark, Norway and France initially declined to approve it for sale within their borders, citing health concerns about the high level of caffeine drink. While the ban was lifted later due to lack of evidence, the issue of Kamagra and Red Bull is still somewhat blurred to date.
If you are drinking Red Bull for the sake of energy, there are healthier sources out there and we recommend you opt for them until more scientific evidence comes up. Eat smart and exercise if necessary but do not consume the drug inappropriately.
What are the others not?
What we do know is that Kamagra should not be associated with alcohol. Alcohol is a minor vasodilator that could improve the effect of Kamagra on blood pressure, dropping it to a dangerous level. Such is also the case for those who take nitrate medications for chest pain or heart problems. Doing so could result in a drop in blood pressure, possibly leading to a heart attack or stroke.
Fatty food is great not like that. Too much fat means more bad cholesterol and abundant amounts of Omega-6 acids. This could lead to obesity which makes erectile dysfunction a reality even for sexually healthy men. Fats also significantly slow down the effect of Kamagra, making erection harder to achieve.
There is a reason why Sildenafil is a prescription drug, so of course, do not take it without your doctor’s approval. If you choose to take it routinely for recreational purposes, you may find yourself in a situation where you become dependent on the medication for an erection, eventually causing ED.
