Aurogra Side Effects

Aurogra®, containing sildenafil, helps with erectile dysfunction but can also cause side effects. Common ones include headaches, feeling flushed, indigestion, and a stuffy nose. Some people might also experience dizziness or changes in vision, such as seeing things with a blue tint. These side effects are usually mild and often go away on their own. However, it's important to pay attention to how your body reacts after taking Aurogra®.

Aurogra® precautions

Before using Aurogra®, it's crucial to talk to a healthcare professional, especially if you have certain health conditions or are taking other medications. Sildenafil can lower blood pressure, so it's important to be cautious if you're already on blood pressure medication. Also, if you have a heart condition or a history of stroke, Aurogra® might not be safe for you.

Does Viagra expire? Yes, like all medications, Aurogra® has an expiration date, and using it past this date could be less effective or unsafe. Always check the packaging for this information and store the medication as advised to ensure it remains effective.

Aurogra® contraindications

There are specific conditions and medications that make using Aurogra® unsafe. For example, taking sildenafil with nitrates, often prescribed for chest pain, can cause a dangerous drop in blood pressure. People with severe heart or liver problems, recent stroke or heart attack, or low blood pressure should avoid Aurogra®. Additionally, if you're allergic to sildenafil or any other ingredients in Aurogra®, you should not take it. We have arranged the most common side effects by the body system in the table below:

System Contraindications
Cardiovascular System
  • Use of nitrates: Medications for chest pain or angina, such as nitroglycerin, because combining these with sildenafil can lead to a severe drop in blood pressure.
  • Recent heart attack or stroke: Especially within the last 6 months, due to increased risk of heart strain.
  • Severe heart problems: Such as unstable angina or severe heart failure, where sexual activity is inadvisable.
  • Severe low blood pressure (hypotension): Blood pressure significantly below the normal range can be further lowered by sildenafil.
Hepatic and Renal Systems
  • Severe liver impairment: Reduced liver function can affect the metabolism of sildenafil, leading to increased risks.
  • Severe kidney (renal) disease: Especially those requiring dialysis, may have altered drug clearance.
Neurological System
  • Hereditary degenerative retinal disorders: Including retinitis pigmentosa, since sildenafil can affect PDE6, an enzyme present in the retina.
  • History of non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION): A condition that causes loss of vision due to damage to the optic nerve, possibly increased risk with sildenafil use.
Allergic Reactions Allergy to sildenafil or any components of its formulation, including inactive ingredients that can cause allergic reactions or other problems.
  • Peyronie's disease or other conditions that predispose to priapism: Such as sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia, due to the risk of prolonged erections.
  • Concomitant use with other ED treatments: The safety and efficacy of sildenafil when used in conjunction with other erectile dysfunction treatments have not been established.

The most common side effects of sildenafil include headaches, facial flushing, and indigestion. Some individuals might experience a stuffy nose, dizziness, or changes in vision. These side effects are similar across sildenafil products, including Aurogra®. While most side effects are mild and temporary, severe reactions, like an erection lasting more than 4 hours (priapism), sudden vision loss, or hearing loss, require immediate medical attention.
