Sildenafil is Viagra active ingredient and the reason behind its popularity and efficiency. The right dose of this medicine can be identified only by your physician. It depends on your drug tolerability, health condition, treatment duration and signs. The standard (from low to high) doses are:

  • 25mg;
  • 50mg;
  • 100mg.

How much you have to use has to be decided by your physician. After an examination he will be able to identify the general state of your health.

What are the differences between 25mg, 50mg and 100mg of Viagra?

If you want to increase the dose, you have to discuss with your physician first and only then you can do it. You have to eliminate the possibility of any negative manifestations from the drug and a thorough medical examination is the first thing you should do.

The smallest dosage is Viagra 25 mg. This is usually given when you have to take other types of medicine that is not compatible with this medicine. These may be alpha-blockers or pills that manage HIV. In order to avoid adverse effects related with hypotension and lightheadedness it is advised to use the smallest dose.

What is the normal dosage for Viagra? 50 mg is a regular dose for starters as it is advised for most men from the very beginning. It is usually enough to deal with impotence and revive the usual sexual performance. A bigger dose is not necessary if the patient responds well to treatment.

Does age has something to do with Viagra dosage?

Your age is not as important as your health condition. With age may appear certain conditions that may not be compatible with the use of such drugs, but there is no universal instruction on how old the patient has to be in order to use this medicine.

How frequently do I have to use it?

It is not suitable to be used more often than once per day. If you are having sex very often then it would be best to search for a solution that can be taken daily or simply lower the amount. The highest Viagra dose per day is 100mg. Do not exceed this limit if you don’t want to increase the probability of a negative response.

What are the manifestations of an overdose?

overdoseFollowing the instructions and prescriptions is the first thing you have to get right, especially when you are dealing with this kind of medicine. Taking less than prescribed may not help you deal with your problem. Probability of adverse effects may grow because it is directly related with the amount of medicine.

These are:

  • Blood pressure fluctuations;
  • Lightheadedness;
  • Headache;
  • Priapism or other conditions may even cause irreversible penile damage.

Get emergency medical help in case you have caused Viagra overdose by accident.

Is it possible to use Viagra in combination with other drugs for impotence?

We don’t recommend doing that as the chance of severe adverse manifestation will increase significantly. Your Viagra dosage doesn’t have to be mixed with any other medication. You won’t be able to increase the efficiency of the medication by using simultaneously drugs from the same group. If you observe that this medicine doesn’t deal well with impotence then check with your physician. He may recommend another medicine that would be more suitable for your case. Other helpful means include injections and penis pumps. Your problem may be of a psychological nature in which case counseling would be prescribed. Switching to a healthier lifestyle would also benefit your condition immensely.
