How it works

How do I take Sildenafil?

Most patients take Sildenafil by mouth about 1 hour (or at least 30 minutes to up to 4 hours) before sexual activity. Take sildenafil exactly as it was prescribed for you by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets.

What is Sildenafil?

Sildenafil is a PDE5 inhibitor that is most commonly used for erectile dysfunction (ED). Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra and the name for the generic form of Viagra. Sildenafil is also the active ingredient in a medication for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) in a drug called Revatio.

How does Sildenafil work?

To get an erection, the body uses chemical signals that tell the vessels to open up and flood blood into the penis when mentally stimulated. Normally, the body then almost as quickly uses an enzyme (PDE5) to break down those blood flow chemicals, causing blood to leave and the erection to go down. Sildenafil works by blocking the breakdown enzyme (PDE5), to help maintain the blood flow and erection.

Frequently asked questions

What is Generic Viagra?

Sildenafil is the generic form of Viagra. Generic medications are required by the FDA to be bioequivalent to the brand medication, meaning that they act the same way in the body and have the same active ingredients. Generic medications also tend to be less expensive than the brand medications and most medications sold in the U.S. are generic.

How long does Sildenafil take to work?

Most patients will start having a response from Sildenafil 20-30 minutes after taking their dose, although full effects may take longer. Eating a high-fat meal just before taking your dose may delay the time it takes for Sildenafil to work.

How long does Sildenafil last?

In most people, the effects of Sildenafil last about 2 hours. Even after the effects of the medication have worn off, the medication is still in your system for up to a day after dosing - so do not take more than one dose daily. If you find your dose lasting 4+ hours, seek medical attention as this is considered priapism and could have damaging effects on the tissues.

What should I tell my doctor before starting Sildenafil?

Before taking Sildenafil make sure your doctor knows about any of the following health conditions: Heart conditions, liver, kidney, eye conditions, bleeding disorders, or penile deformities. Also make sure your doctor knows about all of your current medications, supplements, and any other conditions.

What should I avoid while taking Sildenafil?

Drinking alcohol with Sildenafil can cause side effects including low blood pressure or dizziness. Grapefruit may interact with Sildenafil and lead to unwanted side effects. Avoid the use of grapefruit products. Avoid using any other medicines to treat impotence, such as alprostadil or yohimbine, without first talking to your doctor.

What are the common side effects of Sildenafil?

The common side effects of Sildenafil are: flushing (warmth, redness, or tingly feeling), headache, dizziness, heartburn, nausea, or upset stomach, abnormal vision (blurred vision, changes in color vision), runny or stuffy nose, nosebleeds, sleep problems (insomnia), muscle pain, back pain. For a full list of possible side effects see the important safety information.

What if I take too much Sildenafil?

Taking too much Sildenafil can increase adverse side effects of the medication including severe side effects including extremely low blood pressure or having an erection for longer than 4 hours (priapism). If you have taken more than prescribed by your doctor, or you took the directed amount but you are still having these side effects, seek emergency medical attention.

How long until I may see an effect from Sildenafil?

Most patients will start having a response from Sildenafil 20-30 minutes after taking their dose, although full effects may take longer. Eating a high-fat meal just before taking your dose may delay the time it takes for Sildenafil to work.
