Remedy is a new drug in the same class as Viagra. It generally comes in a smaller dose, has fewer side effects, and delivers a faster reaction time. In studies, patients taking Remedy often has results in less than half an hour. Unlike Viagra, Remedy doesn't seem to have side effects on vision or the heart. It is believed that the drug selectively activates the target enzyme better than Viagra.
In studies, Remedy stayed active and clinically effective for an average of twelve hours in patients sixty-five years or older, and just over nine hours in younger subjects (compared to four hours for Viagra). Remedy showed to improve erections in over three out of four of men who took it. It lacks the alteration of color perception and blurred vision sometimes seen with Viagra.
In short, reaction time to Remedy is better, it lasts longer, and has less side-effects. It can still be deadly, however, if taken with nitroglycerine.
