What dose of Viagra should I take?

Viagra is a medication you might have heard of as ‘the little blue pill’. It is a little blue-diamond medication containing the active ingredient Sildenafil. Viagra is effective at treating erectile dysfunction. Sildenafil is a PDE-5 inhibitor (Phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor), created to help with high blood pressure, but now has found a new use in the medical field. 

PDE-5 inhibitors work by blocking an enzyme called cGMP-specific phosphodiesterase type 5. This enzyme plays a key role in regulating the blood flow to various areas in the body including the penis. Blocking this enzyme not only allows men to get an erection more easily but also to maintain it.

Erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is the inability of someone to achieve and maintain a penile erection during sexual activity. ED occurs more often than people think and the incidence of ED does increase with age. Most men can experience ED at some point in their life and this can be a result of anxiety, stress, or even exhaustion. Men with erectile dysfunction can take Viagra to help maintain an erection.


How much Viagra should I take and can you take half a Viagra?

Viagra dosage varies from 25 mg to 100 mg. The recommended dose for Viagra is 50 mg. This is a good starting dose for most men as it will allow you to monitor your reaction to the medication. If you notice the 50 mg Viagra dose does not have the desired effects, you can increase the dose to 75 mg or 100 mg. Alternatively, if 50 mg is too strong or causes undesired side effects, you can lower it to 25 mg. 


You might think, why don’t I just take the highest 100 mg dose? Well yes, the efficacy of Sildenafil will be higher at 100 mg as it will have a more profound effect on the body than the lower doses, however, the side effects can be stronger at higher doses. The common misconception people might have is that the medication has longer-lasting effects at the higher dose but this is not true, the effects last the same amount of time it is just more potent.


You can definitely take half a Viagra. You can split the 50 mg pill into two and take a 25 mg dose. Try not to take half of 25 mg as it might not be effective. 


Taking Viagra

Viagra is usually taken at least half an hour before sexual activity. Viagra also works better when it is taken on an empty stomach. For Viagra to work and to see its effects, you will need to be sexually aroused. Viagra can last from minutes up to 4 hours. If your erection lasts more than 4 hours, please get medical attention. If you are over 65 years old, it is best to seek medical advice before taking Viagra.
