Headaches

Headaches or migraines are the most common side effect of Sildenafil. They can be mild or severe in some rare cases depending on the dosage and how your body reacts to the drug. Clinical trials show that up to 10% of men that use Viagra will experience a slight headache, but it usually goes away after some short time.

Blurry Vision

In some cases, men report sudden changes in the sense of vision in one or both eyes after taking Viagra; however, this happens in very rare instances. Blurry vision can be a sign of a serious eye problem that the medication might have triggered. So if this side effect manifests, you should stop taking the drug and consult your doctor.

Priapism

An erection that does not go away for hours is another side effect that one can get from using the pills. The scientific term for this condition is priapism. Any erection that lasts for more than four hours qualifies to be called priapism. If your erection lasts for that period of time, you have to seek medical attention as soon as possible because it can cause some permanent damage to your penis.

Some people have an allergic reaction to different kinds of medications. According to statistics, allergic reactions are also a common side effect of Viagra. The symptoms may include things like dizziness, itching, swelling and rashes. If you notice any of these symptoms after taking Viagra, you should get medical help because some of allergic reactions are known to be dangerous.

Hearing impairment

In some rare cases, men will have a temporary decrease or even loss in hearing. Sometimes one can also have a ringing in the ears after taking Viagra. Although there have been various studies on this side effects, most of them are not conclusive about the reason behind it.
