WHAT IS SILDENAFIL?

Sildenafil is a medication used to treat erectile dysfunction. You may know it as the brand name ‘Viagra’, but the active ingredient is sildenafil which works by increasing blood flow to the penis to quickly improve your ability to get and maintain an erection.

Sildenafil is just as effective as Viagra and it is FDA approved to treat erectile dysfunction. It doesn’t matter if you experience erectile dysfunction in your twenties or when you are over 40, it’s hard work made easy.

HOW DOES
SILDENAFIL WORK?

Sildenafil works by improving blood flow to the penis to help men get a firmer and longer-lasting erection. You will need to be aroused for the drug to work. Sildenafil will not resolve the underlying physical cause of your ED.

HOW TO TAKE SILDENAFIL

Sildenafil should be swallowed whole with a little water about an hour before sex. Sildenafil should be taken on an empty stomach. If you take the tablet on a full stomach or if you eat a particularly fatty meal before taking the medication, it may take longer to work and be less effective. The usual starting dose for most men is 50 mg. Do not take sildenafil more than once in 24 hours and don’t combine with other ED meds.

HOW LONG DOES SILDENAFIL LAST?

Sildenafil is formulated to last up to four hours, but most men say they experience the effects for about two to three hours.

How safe is Sildenafil?

Sildenafil is generally a very safe medicine, however it is not recommended for use by women or children. Sildenafil can have side-effects ranging from minor – like a runny nose or a headache – to more serious. If you experience sudden vision loss, ringing in your ears, dizziness or an erection that lasts longer than four hours, seek medical advice by contacting us or your doctor immediately.

You must be sexually aroused for the medication to work. If you feel that your medication is not working for you, contact our doctors who may increase your dosage or prescribe an alternative ED treatment. We do recommend trying sildenafil up to 6 times before seeking an alternative.

What is generic Viagra?

Sildenafil is the medical name for Viagra and is sometimes called ‘generic Viagra’. Viagra is the brand which was marketed by Pfizer in 1998, however, the active ingredient in Viagra is sildenafil. When the patent for Viagra expired in 2013, other drug manufacturers were able to copy the medication and sell it as sildenafil or generic Viagra for a lower price. This made sildenafil a popular and more affordable ED treatment.

HOW LONG DOES SILDENAFIL TAKE TO WORK?

It usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes for sildenafil to work. You should take sildenafil at least half an hour before you want to have sex, but it can be taken up to 4 hours before sexual activity.

HOW MUCH SILDENAFIL SHOULD I TAKE?

Sildenafil is available in 25mg, 50mg or 100mg strength tablets. The usual starting dose for men is 50mg, which can be adjusted depending on how your body responds to the medication. Our doctors will determine the correct dosage for you.

What should I do if sildenafil doesn't work for me?

On some occasions, your body may not respond as well to the medication. If you have eaten a big meal or drank a large amount of alcohol, sildenafil can be less effective. You also must be sexually aroused for the medication to work. If sildenafil doesn’t work, you should try again (after 24 hours) with the same strength tablet. If the medication continues to not work for you, contact our doctors who may change your dosage or prescribe a different ED medication.

CAN I USE SILDENAFIL WITH ALCOHOL?

Drinking 1 – 2 units of alcohol shouldn’t impact the effectiveness of sildenafil. However, drinking more than this can reduce your ability to get and maintain an erection. Alcohol can also make it more likely that you will experience certain side effects including dizziness and headaches.

CAN I TAKE SILDENAFIL MORE THAN ONCE A DAY?

You should not take more than one tablet a day. Taking more than 1 tablet will increase the risk of side effects and possibly their severity.

Is it safe to take sildenafil daily?

Sildenafil is safe to be taken daily, however, the medication should not be taken more than once in 24 hours.

Can I take sildenafil with other ED medications?

No, taking sildenafil with other ED meds can increase the risk of overdose and can potentially lead to dangerous side effects. You must wait at least 24 hours between taking a sildenafil or Levitra tablet, or 48 hours after taking Cialis. Can I take sildenafil with other ED medications?

WHAT SHOULD I AVOID WHEN TAKING SILDENAFIL?

Do not take the product with grapefruits or grapefruit juice as this can increase the levels of the drug in your body and may affect how the medicine works. If you are taking a standard release formulation of alpha-blockers such as alfuzosin, doxazosin or tamsulosin you should wait at least six hours to eight hours before taking those and sildenafil. You should NOT take sildenafil if you are taking nitrates or nitric acid donors. You must tell our doctors about any medications you are taking including any prescriptions, over-the-counter medicines, supplements or recreational drugs.

What should I expect when taking sildenafil?

Sildenafil will help you get and maintain an erection, but you will need to be sexually aroused. To help, you and your partner could engage in some foreplay to give the tablet time to work and to help you become sexually stimulated. It’s important to relax.

Sildenafil may not always work the first time you try to use it. For most men, the tablets are more effective after the second dose. If you are unsuccessful, wait 24 hours and try again. Remember, you can’t take more than one tablet a day. If it has been a while since you had an erection, it may take your body a few doses before you start to respond and see the benefits.

Do not take more than one tablet a day, even if you feel the drug is not working for you. If you take more tablets than you should, you increase the risk of experiencing serious side effects. If you feel the strength you are taking is too weak, then you should talk to our doctors who may recommend a higher dose for you. It is important to manage any increase in dose and monitor your response after each change in dose.

Sexual activity can put further strain on the heart, so it is important to check with your doctor first if you get very breathless or feel any chest pain when you partake in light to moderate physical activity, such as climbing the stairs or taking a brisk walk.
