Sildenafil helps the user achieve an erection by dilating blood vessels in the penis and increasing blood flow to that part of the body. After you’ve taken the pill, it should be much easier to get an erection once sexual stimulation occurs. Three Sildenafil strengths are available, let’s take a look at the differences.

Is it safe to take 100mg of Sildenafil?

For most men the recommended dose of Sildenafil is 50mg, but 100mg pills are available for those who have developed a tolerance to the drug or can’t seem to get the desired results on a lower dosage.

Taking too much Sildenafil increases your risk of side effects, so it’s very important that you only take what you’re prescribed. Fainting can be caused by low blood pressure when you take too much at once, and you can also increase the risk of priapism, which can cause permanent damage to your penis. If you think you’ve taken too much Sildenafil, you should seek medical assistance.

Sildenafil is also available in a 25mg dosage, which you might be prescribed if you’re taking certain types of medication such as alpha blockers, which are designed to lower blood pressure. Taking viagra and alpha blockers at the same time can cause dizziness and bring your blood pressure to dangerously low levels, but using the 25mg pill should ensure you don’t experience these side effects.

How long does it take for Sildenafil to take effect?

Sildenafil can be taken anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours before sexual activity, but it normally starts to work within 30 – 60 minutes. Sildenafil should only be taken once in a 24 hour period. You can be take Sildenafil with or without food, but if you take it after a high-fat meal it may take a little longer to start working.

It’s a good idea to avoid drinking too much alcohol if you’re going to take Sildenafil, mainly because alcohol can be a major contributor to instances of erectile dysfunction. Sildenafil can also make some people feel dizzy or lightheaded, so it’s best not to add alcohol to the mix as well.

Remember, you won’t get sexually aroused just by taking Sildenafil, you need to do the sexual activity bit too!

Will Sildenafil make me last longer?

Only in the sense that it should stop you from losing your erection during intercourse. Sildenafil makes it easier to get erections, but it doesn’t change the sensitivity of your penis or affect how and when you orgasm during sex.

Sildenafil should be used with caution when taking premature ejaculation medication such as Priligy. As it is with alpha blockers and Sildenafil, taking these medications together can cause your blood pressure to drop. Therefore we would always advise consulting with a qualified prescriber before taking ED medications such as Viagra (Sildenafil), Cialis (Tadalafil), Levitra (Vardenafil) and Spedra (Avanafil) with Priligy.

Viagra and Sildenafil contain the same active ingredient

Should I choose Sildenafil or Viagra?

Viagra and Sildenafil contain the same active ingredient. Viagra is a brand name for the Sildenafil produced and sold by Pfizer, and Sildenafil is also sold as a generic drug, which is medically identical to Viagra.

Up until June 2013, Pfizer held the patent to produce the branded version of Viagra. Once this patent expired, many other pharmaceutical manufacturers started to produce UK licensed, generic versions at a lower price. An example of a few companies that manufacturers UK licensed Sildenafil include Teva, Sandoz, Mylan, Dr Reddys and Actavis.
