How Long Does it Take for Sildenafil (Viagra) to work?

It’s no secret that one of the most effective and famous medications for treating erectile dysfunction is Viagra which is the brand name and Sildenafil is the active ingredient. Since Sildenafil does all the work, it’s only right that it should be in the forefront in this group of articles as we attempt to unravel the question of: How long does Sildenafil take to work?

From ingestion to viral action

Medical experts, manufactures and users alike have come to a consensus that the first 30 to 60 minutes is the time lapse for Sildenafil to get into action from the time you ingest it into your system.

It would make sense therefore that if you plan to engage in sexual activity, you’d be doing it right if you take Sildenafil a full one hour before having sex. That’s simple enough to do, but it doesn’t fully address the question because other factors have to be taken into account.

Your see, whatever you ingest into your system along with other factors have to be factored in before you can determine how long it would actually take for the Sildenafil treatment to kick in. Several of these factors include:

  • Sexual stimulation – this may perhaps be the quickest means of getting Sildenafil to kick in faster than you realize. Some people believe that the mere taking of the 50mg or 100mg pill will automatically give you an erection but this is simply not true.

For the Sildenafil to function properly, it needs to be attracted to the spot where stimulation is being applied, for example, to the penis.

  • Alcohol consumption – in order to induce a relaxed and stress free composure prior to engaging in sexual activity, drinking a glass of wine is perfectly fine and it may actually help surge the flow of blood to the penis once stimulation is applied.

Taking a lot more alcohol than this would render Sildenafil less effective. In fact excess consumption of alcohol will compromise the attainment of an erection even if you have or did not have an erectile dysfunction or ED.

  • Cuisine – the consumption of any type of food is another factor that can slow down the effectiveness of Sildenafil to help you attain an erection.

In particular the ingestion of fatty foods into your digestive system will make it more difficult for Sildenafil to enter the bloodstream and do its revitalizing job.

It’s more desirable that you take your Sildenafil pill when you have not eaten anything. This does not mean that you go on a fast. You simply need to refrain from eating anything else for 2 hours after your recent meal, to take your Sildenafil pill.

It’s very important to use Sildenafil according to what has been said above and those that follow, otherwise you’ll only be wasting your time waiting for an erection that just won’t happen as you expect. So it would be wise to follow these basic guidelines:

What is the best way for Taking Sildenafil?

It’s crucial that you take a Sildenafil pill either on an empty stomach or a good 2 hours after you’ve eaten a big meal. The time lapse will allow Sildenafil to enter your bloodstream faster than if you take it immediately after eating a big meal.

You should avoid drinking too much alcohol before taking your Sildenafil as the alcohol will negate the effectiveness of Sildenafil

For how long does Sildenafil remain efficacious?

The answer is generally believed to be about 4 hours so the wise thing to do is not to take Sildenafil early in the morning if you plan to engage in sexual activity with your partner sometime in the evening.

This is common sense since the effect of your pill would have dissipated by evening time and it may become an embarrassing situation for you being the man of the house.

How many Sildenafil pills should I take?

There’s no harm in taking your Sildenafil pill every day as long as you don’t take more than one pill within a 24-hour period. This applies whether you are taking a 25 mg, 50 mg or 100 mg dosage.

If you find that the pill you’re taking doesn’t give you results don’t simply take a different pill dosage without consulting your health provider. Likewise, never take Sildenafil with any other ED treatment. Always talk to your doctor before doing something different with your Sildenafil dose.

How efficacious is Sildenafil in treating ED?

Results show that Sildenafil has been very effective on 79% of all men suffering from erectile dysfunction. As already said, the effectiveness of Sildenafil may drop if you take your pill straight after a heavy meal or just after you’ve been drinking lots of alcohol.

Once again, the reminder that taking a Sildenafil pill on its own will not enable you to achieve an erection. Stimulation of the target area such as the penis must take place before Sildenafil can help you achieve an erection.

Other points to ponder include the cause and seriousness of your erectile dysfunction and your ability to respond positively to the Sildenafil treatment. You shouldn’t be too anxious or worried if you get no results the very first time you use Sildenafil.

Your doctors will tell you that this is a common occurrence and in fact they recommend that you should use Sildenafil on a trial basis at least eight times before you decide to change to a higher dosage or to look for other treatment for your ED condition.

How does Sildenafil really function?

For detailed information on how Sildenafil really works, you are encouraged to refer to this page, but basically what Sildenafil does is to relax the muscle cells of the blood vessels that supply the penis with blood.

It’s this free flowing blood that engorges the penis with blood (especially when being manipulated), with such quantity and force that the penis becomes erect and firm ready for sexual activity.

Conclusion

The information in this article has attempted to answer the question of how long does Sildenafil take to work. It would appear that the normal time for the treatment to kick in and produce an erection is from about 30 to 60 minutes. However, other factors come into play and prevent Sildenafil from working properly against erectile dysfunction. We should ensure that these factors don’t interfere with Sildenafil in its work of curing erectile dysfunction.
