Viagra (another name: Sildenafil) is a pill used for anti-impotence therapy in male patients. Its MOA is improving the blood supply to the penile area, therefore, enabling your body to respond to sexual stimulus in a natural way, i.e. achieve an erection.

There are two different types of Sildenafil available for purchase, one of them is used for ED therapy, the other one is called Revatio, its main use is PHTN treatment.

Precautions

With every single medication in the history of pharmaceutics, there are many things you need to take into consideration before you commit to it. Viagra is well-known for its strong potency, so you have to be extra-careful. You must not take this medication if you:

  • Have active gastric ulcers.
  • Have bleeding disorders.
  • Have blood diseases, including sickle cell disease and plasma cell myeloma.
  • Have ever had issues with persistent/painful erections.
  • Have ever had issues with your eyes.
  • Have ever suffered from hypertension or hypotension.
  • Have issues with your penis, including Peyronie’s diseases, phimosis, and angulation.
  • Have previous history of cardiovascular issues, including arrhythmia, angina and congestive heart failure.
  • Have previous/underlying/current issues with your kidneys and/or liver.

The above selection is not complete. In order for you to stay totally safe, you need to undergo a complete medical evaluation conducted by a qualified specialist. Talk to your MD about this.

Dose

Here are the dosages usually prescribed for the ED treatment:

  • Common starting dosage is 50 milligrams. It may depend heavily on your age, your previous medical history, your overall well-being, along with many other factors. It’s up to your MD to figure out which starting dosage works best for you. It can be changed depending on your response to the treatment. Your MD can either up it to 100 milligrams or lower it to 25 milligrams. Important information: never change the dosage by yourself.

For the PHTN treatment:

  • The starting dosage usually is 20 milligrams, but, once again, it can be changed, and it does heavily depend on your health level.

How to Take This Drug

ED treatment: You take the prescribed dosage approximately 60 minutes before you engage in any kind of sexual activity. You must realize that sufficient sexual stimulation is required in order for this drug to work.

Food timing is unimportant. Never take this medication more than exactly 1 time in the span of 24 hours. You should also be mindful of the fact that the time it takes for Viagra to work varies heavily from person to person. In other words, patients take this pill anywhere from 15 minutes to 280 minutes before the scheduled sexual activity.

PHTN treatment: You take Revatio three times in the span of 24 hours. This method of taking of the pill may also vary heavily from patient to patient.

Food Interactions

There are two types of food that can possibly interact with this medication. You are strongly advised to avoid grapefruit juice and all other grapefruit-containing products for the duration of the treatment. Grapefruit can double the amount of Sildenafil in your body, which can possibly lead to an overdose. You are also increasing your chances of flushing and hypotension if you continue to consume grapefruit products while undergoing this treatment. Grapefruit can also delay this medication’s effect. You are also at a higher risk of experiencing side-effects after full 24 hours of taking the drug. There are many suitable substitutions for this fruit that do not cause any interactions.

You are also strongly advised to lay off fat-heavy foods. This type of interaction is not as severe, but there’s still a risk of experiencing some unwanted responses. Foods with high fat content, including something as common as cheese and nuts, they can slow down Viagra’s action. You are suggested to seek out low-fat options for the duration of this treatment.

Alcohol Interactions

One of the most frequently asked questions. There are two sides when it comes to this question. Many people say that liquor somehow improves the effects of this drug. They talk about drinking in moderation (i.e. one-two glasses) and not experiencing any adverse reactions. Some of these testimonies are true, but this varies heavily from person to person.

We are strongly advising to avoid consuming liquor altogether. There are some severe possibly interactions that you would much rather avoid, including a significant BP drop. You will experience wooziness, dizziness and will ultimately faint. There’s also an increased risk of arrhythmia. The main takeaway is this – if you can NOT drink, you absolutely need to do so. Even in moderation, liquor can be dangerous.

How to Increase This Drug’s Effectiveness

Despite being the best anti-ED option on the market, there are still some things you can do in order to increase this drug’s efficiency. They all basically relate to improving your overall quality of life, i.e. your health level. There are many root causes of impotence and these lifestyle changes can help cure them if you really commit to them. These lifestyle changes include:

  • Quitting smoking.
  • Losing weight.
  • Having a more active lifestyle.
  • Reducing your liquor consumption.
  • Finding a good diet and a good exercise plan.
  • Reducing your stress levels.

None of those changes are easy, but they are guaranteed to yield almost instantaneous results. Thanks to these adjustments, you might eradicate your erectile dysfunction for good, no matter how old or sick you are.

I’m suffering from something that you would call a “mild” ED. My urologist says it is all stress-related. Recently lost my job, so there’s that. I took 25mg, my mood wasn’t right, I was incredibly anxious. Went to sleep, woke up 3 hours later with the biggest hard-on I have had in years. Very happy with the results, now I use it in order to, you know, work around the issues I have. Still holding out hope that I will be able to do this on my own real soon. Maybe it’s gonna happen, I’m not sure. Anyway, this drug WORKS.

I took 100mg one night, got absolutely wasted and passed out before I could do anything with my newfound sexual prowess. Woke up the next morning feeling like an absolute sh**head for wasting my money by falling asleep. Regardless of me being mopey as hell that morning, I had a great passion session with my wife. Turns out, this drug’s effects can last up to god-knows-how-many hours. My wife came twice that morning. That’s the kind of experience I wanted out of this. So, to put it bluntly, this is awesome.

My urologist suggested Generic Viagra to me after I came clean about my ED issues. I’m 76 and I don’t feel awkward talking about that kinda thing, by the way. There were no issues, he just gave me a prescription for Viagra and that was it. I took the set dose (25 mg) and within approximately 23 minutes, I had a very, VERY hard erection. It was a huge relief, knowing that I can basically reclaim my manliness. Long story short: this drug works and you just have got to try it. Maybe it’s gonna work for you, as well?

I’m the type that doesn’t believe in chemicals and readymade pills, ’cause our government is totally in on it. They want to keep you poisoned. You should only take natural stuff. However, there are exceptions – I took Viagra and it worked, unlike any natural remedy that I have tried. It really depends on what kind of experience you are looking for, but I would strongly suggest you try natural solutions. Drugs are the tools of the government. They use it to make us more susceptible to their anti-gun propaganda. Tread carefully.
