Excellent 9.1/10
man asking doctor how quickly viagra works

Viagra can generally start working for many people from 30 minutes after taking the drug. However, this can vary from person to person and is not a guarantee.

Before taking Viagra, it is important to consider that taking Viagra tablets alone will not result in an erection, and you must take Viagra in combination with a sexual stimulant (visual, tactile or otherwise).

There are several erectile dysfunction treatments including branded Viagra and low-cost generic Sildenafil to name a couple.

Can I speed up the effects of Viagra?

There is no way to ‘speed up’ the effects of Viagra per se; the most you can do in order to ensure Viagra kicks in as soon as possible is to take it under optimum conditions. To stop food or fats interfering with the metabolic breakdown of Viagra in the stomach and slowing down its absorption into the bloodstream, try to take your Viagra on an empty stomach. If you must eat before taking your Viagra, eat a low-fat meal rather than fast food, as foods with a higher fat content will delay Viagra’s absorption for even longer.

Make sure that when you take Viagra, you are relaxed and comfortable. It is not ideal to take Viagra while travelling somewhere, for example, but wait until you arrive and are not nervous or rushing. Try not to worry about the amount of time it will take Viagra to work, as this can also have an effect on your nerves and therefore on your ability to gain an erection.

Do not expect Viagra to give you an erection precisely one hour after consumption if you have not begun any form of sexual activity, are not thinking about sex and are not relaxed. Ideally, a combination of all three will lead to the effect you are looking for - Viagra only helps blood flow to the penis, it cannot force you to relax, feel aroused or want sexual activity.

Can I take more Viagra if the first pill does not work as expected?

No. It is important to realise that you have been prescribed a particular dosage for a reason and that Viagra may take several (separate) attempts to have an effect. You must not take more than the prescribed dose in any 24-hour period regardless of its efficacy (or lack of).

Taking more than one tablet of Viagra to try to speed up the process may lead to an overdose or unpleasant side effects as previously detailed. In this case, please contact a medical professional immediately.

How long do the effects of Viagra last? 

There are many sources of conflicting information regarding how long Viagra affects the body. The effects of Viagra may last for up to five hours, but this does not necessarily mean that you will maintain an erection for the whole time – this is a common myth. Viagra will simply improve your ability to get erect if sexually stimulated for as long as the Viagra is present in your bloodstream.
