Brief Answer:
Yes you can take it, better to have prescription

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us. I can understand your concern.

Viagra contains sildenafil. It is 5-PDE inhibitor group of medicines. It is proven drug for male erectile dysfunction. It should be used 2 hours prior to sex. It causes headache, stuffy nose nausea and gastric discomfort like common side effects. Proper physical check-up of cardiac system should be done by a doctor before starting the same. These are prescription medicines and you need to consult doctor/psychiatrist/sexologist for the prescription.
So first consult doctor, get examined yourself and take the prescription. If any side effect occurs, local doctor can help.

Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further.

Dr.Chintan Solanki.

Sildenafil or tadalafil is the best proved drug for ED for all in whom it can be prescribed. Only issue is side effect. As you are 58, care to be taken if you have any physical illness otherwise it is very good drug.

Take care.
