How to take Viagra?

The men who made the decision to overcome the symptoms of erectile dysfunction with this legendary drug all have a common question: how to take Viagra? In this article, we will answer you in detail.

How to choose the right Viagra dosage?

The drug is available in standard dosages: 50 and 100 mg. It is a mistake to think that the more tablets you take, the better the effect.
Only an individual and appropriate dosage of Viagra will provide the maximum result. This is especially important when you are taking the medicine for the first time.

The pill is taken on an empty stomach and swallowed with plenty of water.

Do not take Viagra with alcohol , with foods saturated in fat or with grapefruit juice, as the latter changes the concentration of the drug in the blood.

Sildenafil dosage in case of erectile dysfunction

  1. ” If needed “

If you need a powerful result only once, you should take a 100 mg tablet of Sildenafil. Such a dosage will allow you to have sex, even if you are not ready at all for several reasons. However, such a scheme is practically not suitable for prolonged daily treatment with this drug.

  1. ” Initial “

For the first time, it is better to take the drug in 50 mg tablets. In 80% of cases, this amount is enough to restore a stable erection for about 4 hours.

In addition, depending on the strength of the effect and the body’s reaction to the active component, the dosage can be adjusted if necessary.

  1. “Editable”

Another way to take Viagra is to start using it with a minimum dose of 25 mg and gradually increase this dose until the desired therapeutic effect is achieved.

The individual norm of the drug depends not only on the therapeutic effect obtained, but also on the condition of the patient’s body. The dose can be adjusted in the following cases:

  1. Kidney failure . Only in the event of severe renal insufficiency (creatinine Cl <30 ml / min), the daily absorption of Viagra must be reduced to 25 mg.
  2. Liver failure . In the initial stage of pathology, adjustment of the dose is not necessary. In case of severe hepatic insufficiency (class C with Child-Pugh score): the effects of Sildenafil on the body have not yet been studied enough.

Since under such conditions (especially in cirrhosis), normal elimination of the drug is difficult and the initial dose of Viagra should be reduced to 25 mg per day in patients with hepatic impairment of any severity .

It should be understood that all treatment regimens in the presence of concomitant diseases are better coordinated with a specialist who will choose a personal dosage of Sildenafil which does not represent a health risk.

What is the maximum dose?

The maximum permissible daily dose of the drug is 100 mg, which is equivalent to one tablet. This standard is safe even for older men who adhere to the admission rules and who have no contraindications.

With a correct calculation of the daily dose, long-term treatment does not reduce the effectiveness of the drug. In addition, a reliable effect occurs after 3-4 doses of the drug.

The main thing is to avoid overdose, in order to avoid side effects .

Dose modification according to age

The manufacturer does not plan to change the dose based on age . However, men over the age of 65 are often susceptible to various diseases of the cardiovascular system, as well as the liver and kidneys. This is why we recommend starting to take Sildenafil at a rate of 25 to 50 mg per day.

The use of this medication is prohibited for adolescents under 18 years of age. The ban applies for any dosage!

Dosage in patients taking other drugs

When combined with ritonavir , the maximum single dose of the drug should not exceed 25 mg and the frequency of use should be 1 taken every other day.

When combined with inhibitors of the cytochrome CYP3A4 isoenzyme (erythromycin, saquinavir, ketoconazole, itraconazole) the initial dose of Viagra should be 25 mg.

To minimize the risk of developing postural hypotension in men taking alpha blockers , Viagra should only be taken when hemodynamic stabilization is achieved in the patient. See this article to find out with which other drugs Viagra is contraindicated .

Viagra does not work. What to do ?

Of course, each person has individual characteristics and therefore, all drugs work differently. Therefore, if these pills do not work the first time, you should not despair. In a number of exceptional cases, to get the desired effect, you must repeat taking Viagra.

If for a long time you do not get the expected effect, we recommend that you take into consideration drugs for the treatment of erectile dysfunction that contain another active component. For example: Cialis , Levitra or generic with an improved formula which are in no case lower than their analogues, such as Kamagra , Viagra Generica , Cialis Generic .

summary

The Viagra is the drug most studied and most reliable family of PDE inhibitors 5. Its efficiency reached 83% and is virtually not reduced in the presence of concomitant diseases. Thus, in severe pelvic lesions with destruction of the urinary tract, treatment with Sildenafil 50 mg is effective in 61.5% of cases  .

However, if the patient follows the instructions for using Viagra  , all the rules and conditions, but the drug did not have the desired effect, taking a double or triple dose is very dangerous for health, in particular with pathologies of the cardiovascular and urinary system.

If you are not satisfied with the therapeutic result, contact the specialists at our pharmacy or consult your doctor to find a solution to your problem.
