viagra side effects

We have all heard that Viagra can cause painful erections lasting for hours. What I am wondering is what is usually done for this condition.
Just wait it out or is there some kind of treatment?
MMirzaED responded:
Have you been prescribed by a physician? It's not advisable to take Viagra unless it's prescribed to you for many reasons, one of them being that ED is often a symptom of an underlying condition--and Viagra is not always the answer. The only person who can answer your question is a physician who knows your history. If you don't have one, you can find a local specialized physician at for free.

Check out this post about sleep apnea, a condition strongly linked to ED. In a case like this, Viagra isn't necessary because CPAP therapy can usually alleviate symptoms.
stathies replied to MMirzaED's response:
Thank you for your concern, but this question really came up as a couple of friends and I were watching television. We saw a commercial that listed this as a side effect and we just got curious as to how it was treated.

The only effects I've had from Viagra are a poor erection and what may be the worst headaches of my life.
