If A [Healthy] Teenage Boy Or Young Man Took Viagra (Don't Need Answer Fast)

If a teenage boy or young man (say, under 30), otherwise healthy and certainly without any form of ED, took a Viagra, what would happen? My guess is that his dick would get rock hard and his boner would go away after he rubbed one out.

Am I on the right track here, or is taking a Viagra when you don't need it a surefire way to get a priapism?

When Viagra was first released (twenty years ago?) I asked my doctor about recreational use. He gave me a few samples to try, said he had and it was harmless.

I was harder than Chinese algebra, but then got a nasty headache.

It's somewhat popular in the club and chemsex scenes to make boners easier to get and easier to keep. Obviously there are risks with taking any drug without appropriate medical supervision but it's not gonna just make your dick explode or something. I'd avoid it if only because you can develop a tolerance for it and it would suck if you get ED problems in your golden years and viagra stops being effective because of misuses in your 20s.

Apparently some men do take viagra and similar drugs so that they can have longer erections. I'm an engineer and not a professional medical person by any stretch of the imagination, but my understanding of it is that one use isn't all that bad for you. You'll get a longer lasting boner and that's about it, though all of these drugs do have potential side-effects.

Long-term use though is a whole different ball game. An otherwise healthy young man who did not have any sort of erectile dysfunction before taking viagra/cialis/etc can develop erectile dysfunction as a result of taking the drug. They can also develop a resistance to the drug, which means that now that they have erectile dysfunction, the drugs used to treat that erectile dysfunction no longer work to treat it.

Additionally, long-term use brings with it a much greater risk of side effects, like heart problems, vision problems, hearing problems, seizures, allergic reactions, etc. along with a greater risk of priapism and the possible permanent damage to Mr. Happy that goes along with that.

It also helps things work if you've had a lot to drink.

The people I know who did that just said it made them harder for longer. I did have one guy claim he lasted longer than 4 hours, and was worried. However he ended up fine (no idea how long he was erect).

These were college age people.

Back in my grocery store days, a very young technician who was probably a virgin at the time asked me, "Why do you always put a 'Do Not Drink Alcohol' sticker on Viagra?" and I replied, "Renders it worthless." She answered, "Oh, yeah, you're right."

More than once, I had young men, as in guys in their 20s, drop off a prescription for it, usually for two tablets, and the first question would always be, "Can I drink with this?" My reply was the same; it wasn't my job to judge them on their excessive alcohol and/or drug use.

Priapism is unlikely with Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis (yep, that's "the erection lasting more than 4 hours) but it was a very common side effect with Caverject. (Don't Google THAT on a work computer; trust me on this.) Interestingly, it seemed that most of the reports of priapism came from men who got partially used Caverject syringes from other men and decided to use it themselves to see if it would turn them into all-night sex machines. You DO NOT want to know how priapism is treated, either.

Funny anecdote: My first job out of school was at a mail order facility, and one of the other pharmacists was a 40-something guy who had a desk job, and was almost completely bald. EVERY.SINGLE.TIME he heard the word "Caverject", his head would turn red, and people would say it while walking by his desk just to witness this. It never stopped being funny.

When I was a teenage boy that would happen to me frequently without any Viagra.

Same here. Once, in college, I spent two-days walking around with a stiffy,* wanting to bone anything that moved. If I'd known about priapism then, I'd have probably gone to the ER.

*OK, so I'm being hyperbolic when I say my boner lasted for two days. But there were definitely hours-long periods of having a chubby.

This is one advantage to being female.

This is yet another reason why people should not share needles.

I also believe that male erections are one bodily function that should NOT be interfered with unless it's absolutely necessary.

(Separate post because I probably won't make the edit deadline)

The grocery store where I now get my prescriptions has an enclosed consultation room that is now used mostly for flu shots. It was built because they had hired a pharmacist who had sold his independent store to this grocery store, and a significant portion of that store's practice was from the sale of penis pumps, because that pharmacy shared a building with a urologist who specialized in treating impotence. He was NOT going to do training on this if anyone else could see or hear him. p.s. They did not demonstrate the pumps there; he simply counseled them on its use, with a partial mannequin. The urologist did, ahem, "that".

He's since retired. I would have liked to have had a room like that a few times for things like talking to teenage girls who thought they might be pregnant.
