The effects of Sildenafil (Viagra) can vary from person to person. Ideally, Sildenafil should be taken 60 minutes before it is required, and can last for around 4 hours. But, generally the effects will start to wear off after 2 to 3 hours.
How Long Does it Take to Get an Erection from Sildenafil?
Sildenafil should start to show its effects 30 minutes after consumption. However, this can vary from person to person. Sexual stimulation is usually required, in addition to Sildenafil to achieve an erection. When you first start taking Sildenafil, you may not experience the desired results; however, if you continue taking Sildenafil once every day, for a few days, you may find that your results improve.

What factors affect the longevity and dosage of Sildenafil?
The medication dosage and effects of Sildenafil can vary from person to person. Some factors which may influence the effects of Sildenafil are as follows:
Which treatments last longer?
When exploring treatments for erectile dysfunction (ED), duration of effectiveness is a key factor for many. While Sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, typically lasts for 4-6 hours, there are other ED treatments available that offer extended performance.
Tadalafil, known by its brand name Cialis, stands out with its long-lasting effects of up to 36 hours. This length of duration can offer a more spontaneous experience for men who don’t want to time their medication.
Another option is Spedra (Avanafil) with a quicker onset but a similar duration to Sildenafil.
