Viagra is a brand-name prescription drug that’s approved to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). With ED, you’re unable to have or maintain an erection. Viagra is approved for this use in males ages 18 years and older.

Viagra contains the drug sildenafil. It belongs to a class of drugs called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. (A class of drugs is a group of medications that act in a similar way.) Viagra works by increasing blood flow to your penis, which helps you have and keep an erection. But this drug only works if you’re sexually aroused.

Viagra comes as tablets that are taken by mouth. In most cases, it should be taken about an hour before sexual activity, but it can be taken 30 minutes to 4 hours beforehand. Viagra is available in three strengths: 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg.

Tramadol on the other hand is a centrally acting analgesic with a multimode of action. It acts on serotonergic and noradrenergic nociception, while its metabolite O-desmethyltramadol acts on the µ-opioid receptor. Its analgesic potency is claimed to be about one tenth that of morphine.

Tramadol is used to treat both acute and chronic pain of moderate to (moderately) severe intensity. Tramadol monotherapy does not usually provide adequate analgesia. In chronic non-cancer pain, there is little evidence for the use of tramadol for more than three months. Tramadol is considered to be a relatively safe analgesic.

 

Can tramadol last longer in bed?

Men with premature ejaculation (PE) may benefit from taking tramadol off label; however, these individuals live “on a knife’s edge” and are exquisitely sensitive to develop other sexual dysfunctions. According to a study published in the Indian Journal of Psychological Medicine tramadol is an effective treatment for PE, resulting in a significant prolongation of Intra-vaginal ejaculation latency time that showed clinical improvements in satisfaction with sexual intercourse and control over ejaculation, and decreases in ejaculation-related personal distress and interpersonal difficulty.

Tramadol can make you last longer in bed although the safety and efficacy of tramadol in the treatment of premature ejaculation has been a controversial subject. Most people abuse the drug because on its own tramadol can stop premature ejaculation.  However, even though tramadol can stop you ejaculating it can also cause impotence. According to a new study the administration of tramadol 60 mg/kg three times per week for 45 days statistically reduced the serum testosterone level accompanied by an increase in the serum prolactin level. Excess prolactin interferes with secretion of gonadotropin-releasing hormone, resulting in decreased testosterone and erectile dysfunction.

 

Can I Use Tramadol and Viagra?        

Tramadol oral tablet can interact with other medications, vitamins, or herbs you may be taking. An interaction is when a substance changes the way a drug works. This can be harmful or prevent the drug from working well. To help avoid interactions, your doctor should manage all of your medications carefully. Be sure to tell your doctor about all medications, vitamins, or herbs you’re taking.

It is not advisable for you to use tramadol and Viagra or Vega 100 another brand of sildenafil together because of the risk of  priapism an abnormal persistent erection of the penis. Priapism is a medical emergency that needs to be treated right away. If it’s not treated, the condition can damage the tissues in your penis and cause irreversible erectile dysfunction (ED). If you have an erection that lasts longer than 4 hours, go to the nearest emergency room or call 911.

Viagra  can also temporarily lower your blood pressure after you take the drug. In clinical studies, less than 2% of people who took Viagra had low blood pressure after taking the drug. It’s not known how often low blood pressure occurred in people who took a placebo (no active drug).

But keep in mind that a sudden drop in your blood pressure could be dangerous if you have certain heart conditions. Sudden low blood pressure may also be dangerous if you’re taking certain other medications.

For example, you shouldn’t take Viagra if you take nitrate medications to treat chest pain. You should also avoid taking Viagra if you take a drug called riociguat (Adempas). Taking Viagra with these medications can cause a dangerous drop in your blood pressure that leads to heart attack or stroke.

If you have low blood pressure, taking Viagra could make you feel dizzy or lightheaded, or cause you to faint. You’re also more likely to have these problems if you take Viagra with certain drugs used to treat high blood pressure or enlarged prostate. If you feel dizzy or faint after taking Viagra, lie down until this feeling passes.

If you have a heart problem or low blood pressure, talk with your doctor about whether Viagra is safe for you. To find out how tramadol might interact with something else you’re taking, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. SEE: Does Tramadol Show Up On A Drug Test
