19 Simple Tips for Getting the Most Out of Viagra

  1. Consult a doctor. You need to ensure that you need Viagra. It is very important to consult a specialist if you want this drug to be effective and safe. Tell your doctor if you are allergic to medications so that your doctor can determine if you will tolerate blue pills. Tell your doctor about all the medications, including the herbal preparations, that you are currently taking;
  2. Do not use Viagra if you do not have erectile dysfunction. “Blue pills” are only effective if you have erectile dysfunction. Viagra may not work with endocrinology problems, systemic diseases. If you have complexes, psycho-traumas, psychological restraint, you need to see a psychologist;
  3. It’s not recommended taking Viagra “just in case”. Only if it’s necessary! The drug does not cause physical dependence but can cause psychological (when sensations from sex will seem pale and uninteresting without pills);
  4. Do not take several pills at once! This will help you avoid many side effects;
  5. Do not combine Viagra with medicines, which contain nitrates, alpha-blockers, donators of nitric oxide, inhibitors of other types. These substances reduce the effect of sildenafil, increasing its concentration in plasma;
  6. Take the drug 30-60 minutes before sex. This drug is most effective when taken in advance and precisely 30-60 minutes before sexual intercourse since it takes so much time for the active substance to prepare the body for the upcoming sexual intercourse. However, there are cases when the pills were taken 4 hours before intercourse and everything was fine;
  7. Do not expect instant results from this drug. In most cases, tablets take effect in 40-60 minutes;
  8. Take Viagra in a prescribed dose. The recommended dose is 50 mg, although you may be advised to take higher or lower doses. The maximum recommended dose is 100 mg. Taking a higher dose is dangerous;
  9. Know the signs of side effects. Some people who use this medication have mild or moderately severe side effects, which are not dangerous and do not serve as a reason to consult a doctor. This is only a signal from the body that it makes sense either to reduce the dose or to stop using these pills. These side effects include redness and heat in the neck and face, headache, nasal congestion, memory problems, pain in the upper abdomen or back;
  10. If you use Viagra frequently, it is recommended to use 25 milligrams of Sildenafil once every 24 hours. When using medications containing vasodilators, it is necessary to use the minimum dose of Viagra (up to 25 milligrams per day), after consulting a doctor;
  11. It is not recommended to take this drug more than once a day, especially if the total dose exceeds 100 mg during repeated administrations;
  12. Older men and those suffering from chronic pathologies of the liver or kidneys should reduce the daily dose of sildenafil to 25-50 milligrams (depending on their state of health). With regular use of the product (more than twice a week), one should also reduce the daily dose of the active substance;
  13. Do not swallow medication lying down. They may begin to decompose in the esophagus, leading to heartburn, nausea and vomiting;
  14. Do not chew pills. The shell provides the “delivery” of the drug to the destination – in the gastrointestinal tract. The shell provides a slow release of the drug and cannot be damaged;
  15. Boiled water at room temperature is the best “drinker” for most tablets;
  16. Do not mix Viagra and alcohol. Alcoholic beverages reduce the effectiveness of sildenafil significantly. Ethanol slows down the absorption of substances and disrupts the liver. In addition, under the influence of alcohol, the concentration of sildenafil in plasma increases, which is dangerous due to the complication of chronic liver pathologies;
  17. Do not drink grapefruit juice if you are using Viagra since this drink might boost blood levels of the drug;
  18. Before starting the treatment, you need to exclude a number of contraindications;
  19. Avoid fatty foods. The fatter the food, the slower the medicine will act. Accordingly, do not load the stomach and avoid fatty foods, in particular, red meat, fried foods, etc. You’d better prefer fruits, vegetables, lean meat and fish.
