Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

Basically in some patients this may not work, and this may be because of the end organ pathology such as progression of endothelial (epithelium that lines the interior surface of the blood vessels) dysfunction and diminished cavernosal smooth-muscle content which are required for this medication to work. It may also be due to low testosterone levels. Therefore before treating this symptom with medications consultation with your doctor to know the cause for this symptom, and to rule out or diagnose any pathology if present is recommended. Treating the cause if present is beneficial, and your doctor can also prescribe other medications when viagra is not working.

Take care.

Dear customer,

Thanks for your reply.

This is unlikely. However according to one study responsiveness to viagra diminishes over time. But more studies are required to know whether this is indeed true.
