Overview 

Sildenafil is a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction in men. It works by increasing blood flow to the penis when sexually stimulated, resulting in a firmer and longer-lasting erection. Sildenafil is the generic version of the popular erectile dysfunction medicine, Viagra. It acts in the same way as viagra, but is cheaper. Sildenafil is one of the most popular treatments of erectile dysfunction. In 2013, the patent for Viagra expired. This has allowed other companies to produce and distribute Sildenafil, the active ingredient within Viagra. This has allowed a much more affordable price for Sildenafil, which works in the same way as Viagra. Sildenafil is a PDE5 inhibitor and is taken daily when required, 1 hour before sexual intercourse, at a dose of 25mg, 50mg or 100mg.

How does sildenafil work?

Sildenafil is taken when required, 60 minutes before sexual activity and it works by increasing blood flow to the penis, which helps to achieve and maintain a firmer and longer-lasting erection. It is important to know that in order for sildenafil to work, sexual arousal and stimulation is still required, without this you will not achieve an erection even if you have taken sildenafil. 

Sildenafil Dosage and effectiveness

Sildenafil comes in 3 different dosages, 25mg, 50mg and 100mg. 50mg is the recommended dose for people that have not used sildenafil before, as it is a sufficient strength for most people suffering from erectile dysfunction. Sildenafil may not be effective the first time you take it, your body may need time to adjust to the treatment, so it should be tried at least 8 times to allow for sildenafil to reach its full effect before trying a different erectile dysfunction treatment.

If sildenafil 50mg has proven to be ineffective, increasing the strength to 100mg may work better at treating erectile dysfunction. If you have experienced unwanted side effects from sildenafil 50mg, decreasing the strength to 25mg may reduce the side effects. Although sildenafil 25mg is a lower dose, it has still proven to be effective in treating erectile dysfunction.

Sildenafil remains effective for 4 to 6 hours after taking it.

If you would prefer an alternative erectile dysfunction treatment to sildenafil 25mg, 50mg or 100mg, there are many other options available here at Ashcroft Pharmacy. This includes:

FAQ

  • Is branded Viagra better than generic sildenafil?

    Both medicines contain the same active ingredient, which is sildenafil, so technically no Viagra is not better than sildenafil. They are equally effective. However, personal preference is also a factor, therefore some people may prefer Viagra to sildenafil and vice versa.

  • Is tadalafil/Cialis daily better than sildenafil/Viagra?

    Sildenafil vs Tadalafil

    Both drugs are similarly effective in treatment of erectile dysfunction. The better drug must be decided by personal preference.

  • Can tadalafil/Cialis daily and sildenafil/Viagra be taken together?

    No, taking them together is not advised as they can interact with each other and cause unwanted side effects.

     

  • Sildenafil 25mg vs 50mg vs 100mg

    There are 3 strengths available, 25mg, 50mg and 100mg. We recommend that first time users use 50mg sildenafil and adjust the dose accordingly if 50mg is not working.

  • How long will sildenafil take to work and how long will it last?

    Sildenafil becomes effective approximately 60 minutes after taking it, however some men experience effects 20 minutes after taking it. Sildenafil can be effective for 4 to 6 hours after taking it.

  • How often can I take sildenafil?

    You can take one sildenafil tablet per 24 hours, however we recommend that you do not take one more than 4 times a week.

  • Can I take sildenafil for sexual enhancement without experiencing erectile dysfunction?

    No. You should only take sildenafil if you suffer from erectile dysfunction. Sildenafil will not work for the purpose of sexual enhancement.

  • Can I take sildenafil with my other medication?

    This depends on which other medications you are taking. Before you can buy sildenafil, you will have to complete our online consultation where we will check that your other medications do not interact with sildenafil, before we prescribe you it.

  • Can I drink grapefruit juice if I have taken sildenafil?

    Grapefruit interacts with sildenafil, which may increase your chances of getting side effects, therefore grapefruit should be avoided whilst taking sildenafil.

  • Sildenafil is not working for me, what should I do?

    If sildenafil is not working for you, you should speak to your doctor about alternative treatments. The doctor may recommend an increase in your sildenafil dose, or change the drug completely.

  • Can I take 2 sildenafil tablets at once?

    No. The maximum sildenafil dose is 100mg, instead of taking two 50mg tablets, it is recommended to switch to the 100mg tablet and only take one. Taking higher doses than the maximum dose will not help you achieve a better erection, it will increase your chances of experiencing dangerous side effects.

  • Can I drink alcohol if I am taking sildenafil?

    Yes but only in small quantities. Too much alcohol whilst taking sildenafil may increase your chance of experiencing side effects and also make the erectile dysfunction worse.
