How to use Viagra? 3 tips that will help you

Medical experts agree that men who suffer from erectile problems should look to Viagra for treatment. For the last 15 years, Viagra has been the most purchased medication related to treating the dysfunction. However, even the best medications have their flaws. Today we will be talking about that flaw and how to lessen its effects on you and your partner.

Viagra - how to use

Sex is one of the most unpredictable actions two people can do.

Attempts to schedule sex usually end up in frustration and sometimes even anger from both parties. Viagra’s glaring flaw is essentially this. It forces men to create a schedule around their sex lives. Women in South Africa were asked what the worst thing about their partner’s medication. Over 75% of the women in that poll said the timing of the medication! Most of those women said when the mood hits them, they don’t want to wait an hour or more to get down to business. On many occasions by the time their partners are ready to go, the mood has long passed.

So what’s a man to do? We can only work with the tools we have right?

Yes, but we can change how we use those tools. The first thing we need to do is understand what causes erectile and second, how Viagra treats it. The cause of impotence in 90% of cases is a lack of blood flow to the penis. It’s not something that suddenly strikes but builds up over time. Viagra works by opening up blood vessels in the body to increase your blood flow. When this happens, men are able to for natural erections again. Now that we know what the cause of erectile problems and what the medications we take do. How do we increase Viagra’s effectiveness? Simple, follow these three steps.

The first thing you should consider is digestion. All medications are absorbed into the body easier if you are on an empty stomach. When there is no food in the tank Viagra’s 60 minute wait time can be cut down to as little as 15 minutes. Also, keep in mind this doesn’t only apply to Viagra, this is every other medication too. When you have that nasty headache that won’t go away, make sure you take a painkiller before eating. You’ll be surprised at how fast the medication starts to work. If you have to eat, try to have something light or fast digesting. Foods like fruit, eggs, chicken, and even bread would work just fine.

The second thing you should do is work on your blood pressure. Poor circulation will result in longer waiting times when it comes to medication taking effect. Light exercises on a daily basis can be the difference between a 60 minute wait time and a 30 minute wait time. You don’t need to run a marathon or lift a ton of weights to get the blood flowing. In fact, all you need is a good five minutes of consistent movement to get the heart pumping.

The third thing you should consider is your diet. Limiting the amount of junk food you eat will vastly improve the absorption time of Viagra. In fact, it will improve efficiency as well. Men who have a better diet and take Viagra have reported having larger and stronger erections than men who tend to eat whatever is available. Skip the fast food and get yourself some watermelon, oranges or even some dark chocolate. Your partner will thank you in more ways than one!

Viagra Frequently asked questions.

How long does Viagra take to work?

The effects of Viagra will vary from person to person. As a general rule, Viagra is thought to start working in most people from around 30 minutes after taking the drug.

It is important to understand that taking Viagra tablets alone will not cause an erection. Viagra must be taken in combination with some form of sexual stimulation (visual, tactile or otherwise) in order for an erection to occur.

How long does Viagra last?

The length of time Viagra lasts for will also vary from person to person, but it has been known to work for up to 5 hours at a time, when used alongside sexual stimulation. Most men will find, however, that the effects of the pill will start to wear off 2-3 hours after first taking it.

There are certain factors that will contribute to how long Viagra will last for in your individual situation, and you should always discuss your full medical history and details of any medicines you are currently taking before starting a course of treatment with Viagra.

Which factors will affect how long Viagra lasts for?

The effectivity of Viagra, or how long Viagra will last for, depends on a number of things. These can include:

    • Age. Men over 65 years of age will find that the tablet stays in their body for longer because the body’s metabolic system tends to slow down with age. Essentially, this means that Viagra’s effects can last longer the older you are.
    • Diet. Having a large meal with a high fat content just before you take your Viagra pill can delay it from working as your body will be working hard to digesting the food. By taking it on an empty stomach, the effects will work more quickly.
    • Alcohol. Drinking alcohol decreases the blood flow to the penis making it harder to get and keep an erection. A glass of wine or a single beer is usually fine, but more than 2 units of alcohol will increase the risk of negative side effects and will make it much more difficult to maintain an erection.
    • Dosage. Viagra comes in tablets ranging in dose from 25mg to 100mg. As a rule of thumb: the higher the dose, the more effective and long-lasting the effects will be, but your prescribing doctor will decide which dosage is appropriate in your situation.
    • Health. If you have liver or kidney problems, Viagra’s effects could last for longer. This is because the tablet will take longer to be broken down by your body, so you must always tell the doctor if you suffer from any of these.

Drug interactions.

Certain medicines can alter how long the effects of Viagra will last. This includes medicines such as the antibiotic rifampicin (used to treat tuberculosis). Always discuss your full medical history and any medicines you are currently taking with your prescribing doctor so that they can ensure it is safe for you to take Viagra.

How long does Viagra stay in your system?

If Viagra is broken down normally by the body the effects usually do not last more than four hours.

Always follow the instructions given to you by your prescribing doctor to avoid negative side effects and do not exceed the recommended dosage.

Can Viagra have any long-lasting effects?

In extremely rare cases, often when Viagra has been taken in combination with other medication or illegal drugs, a condition called ‘priapism’ can occur. Priapism is the name for a painful erection lasting for longer than 4 hours.

This is a serious medical condition that can be painful and lead to long-lasting damage to the penis. If you have an erection that is painful or lasting longer than 4 hours, you should seek immediate medical attention”
