Sildenafil

Description

Sildenafil, often sold as Viagra, is a pill used to treat both impotence and or erectile dysfunction in men. By increasing blood flow to the penis, men can enjoy fuller and longer-lasting erections. At least two-thirds of men have seen improved erections after taking the medicine.

  • It can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes for Sildenafil to kick in. However, you can take it up 4 hours before sexual activity.
  • For Sildenafil to work, you need to be somewhat sexually aroused. It won’t cause unprovoked erections on its own.
  • Make sure you let us know what other medications you’re using before getting started on Sildenafil. Combining the medication with nitrates, often used for chest pain, can cause a dangerous drop in blood pressure.
  • Full Drug Facts

    This drug does not prevent STD’s and safe sex should always be practiced.

    Always listen to the dosage instructions of your urologist or doctor before starting Sildenafil.

    To treat erectile dysfunction, take the drug by mouth directed by your doctor, usually as needed. To make the most of the medicine, take it at least 30 minutes, but no more than 4 hours before sexual activity. One hour tends to be the most effective time to take it. Never take Sildenafil more than once daily, and avoid mixing alcohol and other medications.

    Eating a high-fat meal may delay how quickly the drug works.

    The dosage will always be based on your particular medical condition, response to treatments, and other medications you may be taking. Always notify your doctor or urologist of any other drugs or medications you may be taking – herbal, nonprescription, or otherwise.

    Contact your doctor if conditions do not improve or worsen.
