Tips for Men Using Viagra

One of my journals, Mayo Clinic Proceedings,  (I read every night to keep up with the latest medical information) contained some clinical pearls that I wanted to pass on to my men readers who take medication for erectile dysfunction (ED).  They reported on a healthy 67 year old male who took 2 25mg doses of Viagra (sildenafil) but still did not get erections.  He was frustrated and inquired about other treatments for ED.

The article reported that patients often take Viagra and other phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (Cialis, Levitra) incorrectly. To be effective, Viagra must be taken on an empty stomach at least one hour before intercourse. Research has shown that approximately half of patients who don't respond to Viagra will have success when they take it properly.  The dose can go up to 100mg but there is no need to increase the medication until the patient learns how to take it.

So there you have it.  Take it on an empty stomach at least 1 hour before sex.
