Kamagra (Sildenafil) Overdose Risks: What Happens When You Take Too Many Pills
Kamagra (Sildenafil) helps men struggling with erectile dysfunction. The pills treat erectile dysfunction (ED) by increasing blood flow to the penis. However, taking more pills than prescribed can cause permanent, painful erection and other potential health risks.
Kamagra/Viagra is a popular medication for treatment of sexual dysfunction in older men. According to the Pfizer research, the age of Kamagra/Viagra’ users ranges from 40 to 50 years. Men are likely to use blue pills because they consider their sexual performance as a high priority. A desire to enhance sexual performance can lead to abuse of medications and overdose. You have to remember that in case of Kamagra/Viagra the golden rule says: “Less (blue pills) is more” if you want to keep healthy sexual function.
Sildenafil acts on the penis and other parts of the body. Too many pills can cause a priapism, an uncomfortable and disproportionately large erection that lasts for more than four hours. A prolonged erection can lead to permanent damage to the tissues of the penis.
The pill works by inhibiting an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5), making the penis muscles relaxed and allowing blood to flow in and produce an erection. However, the overdose will cause too much blood running into the penis, which will make it painfully swollen. In such case, a minor surgical procedure may be necessary to draw the blood to reduce the erection.
Sildenafil is a drug that contains nitric oxide, which is a vasodilator. It can lower blood pressure, and the overdose can lead to increased cardiovascular risks such as fluctuations in blood pressure and irregular heartbeat. Other common symptoms include blurred vision, decrease or loss of hearing, accompanied by dizziness and ringing in the ears, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Kamagra has gained popularity among men suffering from ED and men who do not need the drug at all. The latter takes it for confidence.
Men taking high doses of Kamagra are more likely to overdose. Remember, like other drugs for erectile dysfunction; Sildenafil stays in the blood up to 24 hours. Therefore, doctors recommend taking only one pill per day
