Sildenafil takes effect within an hour of being consumed. It should then be effective in helping you to get and maintain an erection for 4 to 6 hours. However, the speed and efficiency of Sildenafil does depend upon how much food you have had to eat, as well as your alcohol consumption. For best results, take it without food (or with a low-fat meal) and without alcohol, and allow an hour for it to take effect.

How does Viagra work?

Viagra functions increasing the flow of blood to the penis whenever a man experiences sexual arousal, thus helping to attain and maintain an erection. Alternatives to Viagra include Cialis, Levitra, Spedra and Sildenafil which all work in a similar way.

Whenever a man is sexually aroused, his brain sends signals to the muscle cells in his penis to relax. This advances the flow of blood to the penis which produces an erection. Erectile dysfunction occurs when this process is disrupted.

Viagra temporarily ensures that the procedure works normally. It causes the muscle cells in a man’s penis to relax which advances the blood flow, thus increasing the likelihood of getting an erection. However, Viagra is not an aphrodisiac and still requires sexual arousal to work.

How do I take Viagra?

  • Viagra should be used one hour before sex on an empty stomach (consuming dinner with a high fat content could make Viagra act slower)
  • The results of Viagra last from four to five hours, and you should not take it unless you intend to have sex.
    You should not drink multiple or two units of alcohol as this may make Viagra less effective and increase the danger of side effects.
  • You must never take multiple Viagra tablet at any given time without consulting your doctor.
  • Viagra shouldn’t be used within 24 hours of taking Sildenafil, Cialis or Levitra.

How long does Viagra take to work?

How effective is Viagra?

Viagra has been shown to be effective in 75% of men with erectile dysfunction. How a particular man responds to Viagra greatly is determined by the underlying cause of his erectile dysfunction, the severity of any underlying cause and their education of sexual stimulation he experiences.

If Viagra does not improve your erection the very first time you take it, don’t give up. The cause of this might be due to any number of factors, and certainly not that Viagra is an ineffective treatment option. In most circumstances, it is preferred that you do not try an alternative treatment or older dose until you have tried Viagra at least eight times.

Are there any side effects?

When you have any worries about the side effects of Viagra, please consult our guide on Viagra side effects, contact one of our pharmacists, or talk to your GP.

What if I am taking other medicines?

If you believe that you will need to take Viagra, it’s important that you inform us about some other medicines you’re taking.

Medicines to avoid:

Nitrates: You should not take Viagra if you are taking nitrates. These are some medicines to take care of certain health conditions, particularly ones within the cardiovascular system.
Recreational drugs: Several recreational drugs also contain nitrates, such as ‘Poppers ‘, ‘Aromas’ and ‘Room Odourisers ‘. Not only can the nitrates mix badly with Viagra, but another substance in them might not react well with the human body either.
Alpha-blockers: if you are taking alpha-blockers for hypertension, make certain there’s at least a six-hour gap between taking them and taking Viagra.

If you begin taking any new medicines then please seek guidance from our doctors by sending an email via your Patient Record.

Does Viagra treat the underlying causes of erectile dysfunction?

Viagra will not be able to treat the underlying reasons for erectile dysfunction, and sometimes it can be a sign of more severe health problems. Therefore, you should have regular check-ups for heart and hormone problems as erectile dysfunction may be among the early outward indications of these conditions.

It is very important to set up an annual:

  • blood pressure test
  • blood sugar test for diabetes
  • blood lipid test for raised cholesterol
  • blood test to measure your testosterone, thyroid and prolactin levels

This includes alpha blockers, medicines for heart attacks or strokes, nitrate based medicines or medicines which treat liver or kidney failure.
