Latest research shows , that older men are not the only ones using impotence pills but rather the fastest growing segment of Viagra (sildenafil) users are men between ages 18 to 55.
The study examined Viagra use among 5 million insured males, ages 18 and older, from 1998 to 2002. The overall, use of Viagra increased 84 percent in the study group, with men older than 56 years receiving the majority of prescriptions. Researchers also observed that Viagra use for a medical reason declined in all age groups thereby implying that the increased use of Viagra was for enhancement and recreation.
Thus researchers say that prescription benefit plans of erectile dysfunction drugs vary from unrestricted coverage to no coverage, and the large increase in Viagra users could be bad for insurers.
