Question:

After diagnosing me with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction recently, my doctor prescribed Viagra — 50-milligram tablets — to be taken 30 to 60 minutes before sex. I have heard varying accounts of how long Viagra lasts and would like to have an expert opinion on this question.

And does the drug’s duration of effects count from the point when it begins to take effect or from the moment the drug itself is taken?

    Answer:

    Your doctor’s prescription of 50-milligram Viagra tablets is the recommended starting dose and can be adjusted upward or downward as needed. However, given your diagnosis of mild to moderate ED, a 50-milligram tablet should be adequate.

     

    As to Viagra’s duration of effects, it varies depending on the sensitivity of individual patients and the severity of their ED symptoms. Generally speaking, Viagra lasts for three to four hours after the pill is taken, although some men report that it continues to work for them for up to five hours and even slightly more.

     

    If your ED symptoms tend to be more mild than moderate, you may well find that you can get the desired results from Viagra with a dose of 25 milligrams. Although you can take Viagra with or without food, it generally goes to work faster and lasts longer if it is taken on an empty stomach.

     

    And taking it after a heavy meal, particularly one high in fat content, can significantly delay its onset of action.
