Viagra dosage

The right Viagra dose

The Viagra dose to be taken is adjusted by the attending physician to the individual needs of the patient. Only in this way can an optimal effect with the least possible side effects be guaranteed.

Which patients should take the lowest dose of Viagra 25mg?

Usually sildenafil is prescribed in the middle dose of 50mg. If a patient's ability to metabolize sildenafil in the body is reduced, treatment with Viagra 25mg may be more appropriate.

Also, for patients who experience strong side effects when taking a higher dose, a lower dose is preferable. If you are not sure which dosage is best for you then contact our doctor. Through your personal account you can contact our doctors.

As a rule, treatment with the low dose of sildenafil is recommended for the following patients:

  • Patients with severe renal insufficiency
  • Patients with impaired liver function
  • Concomitant treatment with CYP3A4 inhibitors (e.g., ketoconazole, erythromycin)

To whom does the doctor prescribe the standard dose of Viagra 50mg?

When treatment with sildenafil is usually started with the median dose of 50mg. In the absence of a treatment success, the dose may possibly be increased after consultation with the attending physician. However, before you take a higher dose, you should make sure that there are no other reasons for the lack of effect. Increased alcohol intake, heavy eating and mental pressure can reduce erectile dysfunction.

Usually, by avoiding these negative influencing factors with the aid of the standard dosage, the desired result can already be achieved. Nevertheless, if no success occurs, the dosage can be increased in consultation with a doctor.

If you suffer from severe side effects after taking the standard dose, a reduction in the amount of active ingredient must be considered.

In more than 70 percent of men treated, sildenafil 50 mg treatment results in treatment success.

Who should take Viagra with the dosage 100mg?

The highest commercially available dosage of sildenafil is 100 milligrams. This is usually taken by patients for whom treatment with a lower dose has not achieved the desired results. Sildenafil 100mg can also be used to treat young patients or those with particularly severe erectile dysfunction.

Among the various doses, however, the most frequent side effects occur with this starch, which is why, if possible, therapy should first be carried out with a lower dose. More information about the side effects of sildenafil can be found here.

What factors can reduce the usual dosage?

There are reasons that can reduce the effects of sildenafil. Be sure to follow your doctor's instructions and avoid alcohol and a large meal before taking it.

Consuming alcohol and foods that are difficult to digest may slow down the uptake of the erection-enhancing agent into the bloodstream and prevent an erection.

In addition, the feeling of being under pressure to perform at a certain level can make the drug unable to achieve its desired effect. In this case you should try to relieve the mental pressure and relax. By no means should you increase the dosage by hand.

Which daily maximum dose should not be exceeded?

The maximum daily dose of sildenafil is 100mg. Taking more than 100 mg sildenafil per day is said to be an overdose. An overdose does not increase the efficacy of the drug, but more often it can cause side effects that can be more severe. The most common side effects include headache, flushing, diarrhea and indigestion, but also a permanent erection, which must be treated promptly and represents a medical emergency.

Sildenafil is a prescription medicine and its use in children and adolescents under the age of 18 is expressly prohibited.
