Recreational Viagra (sildenafil): Although not recommended to be taken without a doctor's approval, these drugs are very safe except when taken with nitrates such as Nitroglycerin or amyl nitrate(poppers). The most you will probably notice is flushing of the face, headache, stuffy nose, or blue visual changes. I don't recommend taking them if you don't need them.

If you take Viagra and you are not sexually stimulated nothing may happen.For Viagra to be effective you need to be stimulared,either by a partner or through masturbation,sometimes you may get spontaneous erection but without stimulation it will not last long

About 20 minutes.: Viagra (sildenafil) does not begin to work immediately, it has to be absorbed from your stomach, enter the blood stream and reach the penile blood vessels. This usually takes 20 - 30 minutes.
