Taking Viagra for the First Time: How to Get the Best Results

Taking Viagra for the First Time_ How to Get the Best Results

Viagra (sildenafil) is a popular drug for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, which allows a man to live normal sex life.

It has a strong effect on the body: it provides the necessary blood flow to the penis. Therefore, you cannot take Viagra without control and should special attention to the first dose. This is necessary to assess the body’s response to the drug and not harm health.

Features of the first use

Although Viagra can be purchased without a prescription – both in a pharmacy and on the Internet – it is recommended to take pills only after consulting a doctor – when diagnostic studies confirm that the cause of sexual dysfunction is in deviations from the norm of blood circulation in the pelvic area. In other clinical cases, taking tablets at best will be useless, at worst – it can be harmful to health (if there are contraindications).

Before use, you need to make sure that the tablets do not worsen the state of health. Therefore, you should:

  • carefully read the instructions for the drug, paying special attention to the sections “Dosage”, “Contraindications”, “Side effects”;
  • make sure that the drug has not expired;
  • start with a minimum dosage (this will help prevent possible complications and help you choose an individual amount of sildenafil to achieve a lasting and strong erection);
  • study drugs incompatible with Viagra;
  • if you have any doubts, consult a doctor.

The main rule that will save health in case of negative reactions (they are rare but still happen!): If you feel worse, you should not take another dose of the drug. Such cases should be considered with a doctor who will give medical advice or help you choose an alternative to Viagra.

Contraindications

There are a number of diseases, pathologies and health features in which taking “blue pills for men” and drugs with a similar effect can lead to negative consequences:

  • Hypertension that cannot be controlled. Sildenafil directly affects blood circulation, increasing blood pressure;
  • Pathologies of the heart muscle, for example, narrowing of the aortic valve;
  • Disruption of the heart: failure, arrhythmia, angina pectoris, etc.;
  • Pulmonary hypertension;
  • Oncological diseases;
  • Glaucoma (increased intraocular pressure) and retinitis pigmentosa (RP);
  • Hemophilia and low blood coagulability in general;
  • Renal failure;
  • Serious mental disorders;
  • Hepatitis of various nature with fibrosis;
  • Deformation of the penis;
  • Recent surgical intervention.

This is not a complete list of contraindications – the doctor should make a verdict based on the medical history of the man, the characteristics of the body and its condition. The use of the medication is also prohibited to minors.

Instructions for use

Before you take Viagra for the first time, you need to understand that this drug will only help achieve an erection in the presence of sexual stimulation. Therefore, before the first administration, it is important to be in a good mood, pleasant atmosphere and be psychologically prepared for sexual intercourse.

You should also know that the active substance of the drug – sildenafil – begins its work immediately after it enters the bloodstream, where it is absorbed from the digestive tract. On average, a man achieves an erection 30-60 minutes after administration of the drug and the action lasts for 4-6 hours. This is quite enough for several sexual intercourses.

To achieve the best result for taking this drug, you should follow some general rules:

  • It is recommended to take the pill 2 hours after eating. The active substance is absorbed into the blood from the stomach, so if it is filled with food, the effect will be weaker. But taking the pill on an empty stomach is also undesirable. You’d eat “light food” in advance, such as vegetables and fruits. The fat content of the products should not exceed 30%;
  • The optimal time of administration is 1 hour before sexual intercourse. During this period, the drug will have time to act properly;
  • The pill (or part of it, depending on the dosage) should be washed down with warm soft water or mineral water without gas;
  • Store the remaining pills in a dry room in accordance with the instructions.

Dosage

The doctor may prescribe sildenafil at a dosage of 25, 50 or 100 mg tablets. The average dose for the first dose of Viagra is 50 mg. The results of clinical studies have shown that this amount of the drug is sufficient for a normal erection for most men. Depending on the reaction, the dosage is left unchanged or adjusted. This is required to achieve the optimal result for each patient. There is another approach in calculating the individual dose: start with 25 mg, and then increase the dose until the desired effect occurs.

You can take no more than 100 mg of Viagra per day. Experiments have shown that exceeding the daily dosage leads to discomfort, an increase in the number and strength of side effects. Therefore, taking risks is strongly discouraged. Another limitation concerns the number of doses: you cannot take the drug more often than 1 time in 24 hours.

Important nuances

Any medication should be treated with care. And Viagra is no exception. A man who decides to use this remedy to treat erectile dysfunction should also know about other nuances:

  • Any medications, including herbal remedies, can interact with sildenafil. Pay special attention to medicines that affect blood pressure, antibacterial and antifungal agents. Any combination should be discussed with a physician;
  • Although ethyl alcohol does not affect the content and activity of the active substance, doctors warn: Viagra and alcohol are incompatible. Experiments can lead to disastrous results and certainly negatively affect the quality of sexual intercourse. The use of alcohol-containing drinks introduces an imbalance in the cardiovascular system, so the risk of side effects and the unpredictable reaction of the body increases several times. The maximum that a man can afford is a pair of glasses of quality wine or 0.5 beer.

If the drug doesn’t help…

If you took the pill for the first time but did not feel the expected effect, then:

  • Be sure to take the next dose as directed (on another day);
  • Be sure to exclude alcohol consumption, which not only reduces the effectiveness of the drug but also increases the risk of side effects;
  • Try to increase the dose (gradually, on the following days);
  • Try another ED drug (for example, Levitra, Cialis, Stendra). Sandel Center offers a wide range of drugs to treat erectile dysfunction, as well as other quality medical products from reliable manufacturers, so it won’t be difficult for you to find a good alternative for traditional “blue pills for men”.
