WHAT IS VIAGRA?

Viagra is a prescription drug used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED), which is when a man can’t get or maintain an erection that’s hard enough for sex. It works by increasing blood flow to the penis. Viagra is the brand name of a medication which contains the active ingredient sildenafil citrate.

HOW DOES
VIAGRA WORK?

Viagra works by relaxing the blood vessels in the penis, allowing blood to flow into it more easily, helping it get erect. The active ingredient is called sildenafil, which is a PDE5 inhibitor. PDE5 inhibitors increase blood flow to the penis when a man is sexually aroused. Viagra won’t give you an automatic and instant erection. To get an erection you need to feel the sexual desire in the first place, Viagra will then make it more likely that the desire will result in a lasting erection. Viagra will not treat the underlying physical cause of your erectile dysfunction.

HOW TO TAKE VIAGRA

Viagra is taken as a pill, which should be swallowed with water. It comes in three strengths, 25mg, 50mg, and 100mg. The usual starting dose for most men is 50mg, however, our doctors will tell you how much to take. Viagra can take 30 to 60 minutes to work and should be taken around half an hour before you plan to have sex. Viagra is most effective on an empty stomach. You must be sexually aroused for Viagra to work.

HOW LONG DOES VIAGRA LAST?

The effects of Viagra typically last for two to four hours. This varies from man to man, as everyone reacts differently to medication, and it depends on how much you take. You may get more than one erection in this time frame, but again, this varies from person to person. Do not take more than one Viagra tablet within 24 hours.

How safe is
Viagra?

Sildenafil, the active drug in Viagra, has gone through extensive clinical trials and has been approved by government health agencies around the world. It’s effective and safe for most men. Like any medication though, Viagra can have side effects, but in most cases, they are relatively mild and short-lasting, such as headaches, hot flushes, and indigestion. More severe side effects can be felt, however. Viagra should not be taken in combination with certain other medications too, such as nitrates. And if you have severe heart problems you shouldn’t take Viagra.

Other common questions

Who is Viagra for?

Viagra can help you get and maintain an erection, however, it will not treat any underlying physical causes which can include diabetes or heart disease.

What does Viagra do?

Viagra causes a type of muscle tissue in the penis to relax, opening up the blood vessels in the penis, allowing it to fill with blood (the penis filling with blood is what causes an erection). It won’t give you an erection without sexual stimulation however. You have to want to have sex and have sexual desire for Viagra to give you an erection.

How long does Viagra take to work?

Viagra usually takes 30 to 60 minutes to work. This will vary by person though and will depend on how you react to the drug, as well as how much you take.

There may be occasions when Viagra won’t work for you. If you have eaten a heavy meal or drank a large amount of alcohol before taking Viagra, you might find that it doesn’t work. You also need to be sexually aroused for Viagra to work. Certain underlying causes of ED may require more specialist treatments such as psychological counselling.

What Viagra dosage should I take?

The usual starting dose for men is 50 mg. This can be adjusted depending on how your body reacts. If you feel that the 50 mg dose doesn’t work for you, you may need the 100 mg dosage. Of if you find any side effects are too strong, your dose can be lowered to 25 mg. We do recommend trying the same dosage a few times before seeking to increase it as there may be factors such as anxiety or stress at play, which can limit Viagra’s effectiveness. Speak to our doctors if you feel that you need a different dose.

Is Viagra affected by food?

Viagra can be taken with food, but it may take longer to work if you take it with a heavy meal or one that’s high in fat.

When to take Viagra?

What do I need to know when taking Viagra for the first time?

We understand that it can sometimes be a little bit nerve-wracking or stressful when trying Viagra for the first time. Unfortunately, this can impact the effectiveness of the treatment. Try not to put too much pressure on yourself, and remember to relax and enjoy the experience with your partner.

What happens when you take Viagra?

You should take Viagra 30 to 60 minutes before you plan to have sex. The exact timings of what happens next will differ by person and by dose taken. As long as you feel sexual desire, and have enough sexual stimulation, you may get an erection in as little as 12 minutes, although it most often takes from 30 to 60 minutes. It can take longer though, so don’t panic if it does. The effects usually last up to four hours, and you may be able to get more than one erection during this time.

How long does Viagra stay in your system?

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

If you feel that Viagra is not working for you please contact our doctors. They can consult with you and determine whether to change your dosage or try an alternative ED treatment. You shouldn’t try and change your dose yourself, and never take more than one Viagra tablet in 24 hours as this can increase the risk of serious side effects.

Does Viagra have side effects?

Viagra is generally very well tolerated by most men. However, like all medications, side effects can be experienced. The most commonly reported side effects include headaches, facial flushing, indigestion, dizziness, congestion and changes to vision. These tend to be mild and go away after a few hours.

If you experience more serious side effects such as chest pain, loss of vision or a painful erection that lasts for several hours, you should seek immediate medical attention.

For more information on the potential side effects of Viagra, please read the patient information leaflet.
