10 tips on how to avoid side effects and get the best from Viagra

Although Viagra is one of the most effective drugs for erectile dysfunction and improved sexual stamina, it comes with several side effects and a good number of the cases where side effects occur is due to wrong administration.

For maximum output and to also reduce the chances of side effects occurring, here are some important tips for administering Viagra or any other Sildenafil-based drug.

It should be administered once in a day

Viagra should be taken at most once in a day. Taking more than that is overdose and it could lead to side effects. If you take it and do not see the effects, there must be a reason for it. Consult your physician.

Maximum dose is 100mg

No matter the intensity of your erectile dysfunction, the human body cannot comfortably take more than 100mg at once. Remember, it takes different time before the drug starts working in different individuals. So, don’t let impatience push you into taking more than 100mg of Viagra at once. You may not like the outcome.

Never break a pill into two

You must either chew or swallow a pill all at once. It is more effective that way.

Don’t take it with other medications

Sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra can react fatally when it comes in contact with other drugs in the body. So, you should never take Viagra when you are taking other drugs, especially drugs that contain nitrates.

Don’t eat much before taking Viagra

Actually, Viagra works best on an empty stomach so it should be taken on an empty stomach. However, you also need to understand that you may not be able to “rock and roll” for long on an empty stomach. Long sexual intercourse requires a lot of strength. So, it is better to strike a balance between having an empty stomach for Viagra effectiveness and needing energy for sex. This is why you should eat but don’t eat much. You are better off with only some snacks.

Drink a lot of water after taking the pill

It is believed that taking at least a glass of water after taking the pill helps to mitigate its side effects, so you should take as much water as possible.

Never take it with alcohol

Alcohol reduces rate of Viagra’s absorption and it makes its side effects worse. So, never take Viagra with any alcoholic drink.

An-hour window period is necessary

It takes at least one hour for the effect of Viagra to get to the maximum. So, you need to take it at least an hour before sexual intercourse. If she suddenly gets into the mood and requires sex, you can quickly excuse yourself to take the pill and try to delay the main activity with lengthy foreplays.

Viagra does not give sexual arousal

Viagra is not an aphrodisiac, so it won’t arouse you. It only gives strong erection. If your problem is lack of libido, you may need to consult your doctor as Viagra is not the solution.

Stay relaxed to avoid anxiety

Viagra works best when you are calm and your mind is relaxed. Anxiety hinders its efficacy so you should be relaxed each time you want to take it.

With all the tips above, you will not only reduce the chances of seeing any side effect, you will also make the best use of the drug.
