HOW TO USE VIAGRA

Get in the mood

You still need to be sexually aroused for it to work, so everything needs to be exciting. You’ve got this.

Take the pill

Take a pill an hour before you want to have sex. Sildenafil starts to work within 30-60 mins and maximum erection potential happens around the 1 hour mark.

Enjoy

Sildenafil lasts for around 4 hours (sometimes longer for some men). So relax, no need to rush.

A note from our doctor

Erections really aren’t that easy. For a lot of men. About 40% of men have erection difficulties by age 40. But help is here. Sildenafil is one option for men with E.D. and lasts for around four hours. Whatever the cause, it helps for the vast majority of men.

Frequently asked

Yes, Sildenafil is exactly the same as Viagra. Sildenafil citrate is the active ingredient in branded Viagra, which you can now buy as generic Sildenafil tablets from Manual. Without the famous brand name behind it, Sildenafil is still a successful treatment for erectile dysfunction and will give you the same effects as Viagra, but without the higher price tag.

Sildenafil is a PDE5 enzyme inhibitor, meaning it works by allowing blood vessels to expand and relax. This increases blood flow to the penis when a man is aroused, which improves sexual performance for men with erectile dysfunction (ED). Sildenafil and Viagra work in exactly the same way, because the active ingredient (sildenafil citrate) is the same.

For most men, the effects of Sildenafil can last for up to 4-5 hours, although it can range from 2-6 hours depending on the individual. Sildenafil can safely be used daily, if you’re intending to have sex daily, however, the effects of Sildenafil don’t accumulate if you take more in advance. Use it only when you need it.

Sildenafil usually starts to work within 30-60 minutes. Maximum erection potential is usually after 1 hour. It’s important to remember that the pill won’t give you an automatic erection – you still need sexual stimulation to maintain a good erection. Eating a heavy meal or drinking too much alcohol before taking Sildenafil (Viagra) can also mean the drug is slower to take effect.

It’s suggested that 80% of men who take Sildenafil achieve erections strong enough for sex. In a review of 82 trials covering over 47,000 patients, Sildenafil 50mg was found to be the most effective of all other comparable medications. Hence why it's our treatment of choice here at Manual.

Sildenafil: Everything You Need to Know
Curated by Dr. Earim Chaudry, Manual Medical Director
At Manual, we are experts on erectile dysfunction. There are many causes of ED, generally split into psychological or organic causes (such as medications, hormonal, neurovascular, anatomical factors). In many patients, it can be caused by a combination of factors, and so do we advise having a GP checkup.
If you decide to treat your ED, an oral medication like Sildenafil is the most popular way to start. Some men find just knowing it’s available to help improves their sexual confidence, and 80% of men who take Sildenafil will achieve erections strong enough for sex. Those are good odds.
When and how should I start treatment?
Here at Manual, all of our medication comes from the officially accredited Manual Pharmacy. Before you buy, you will receive a consultation from one of our clinicians, who are all registered with the UK’s General Pharmaceutical Council.
Our pharmacist will prescribe you the correct dose of Sildenafil to best treat your ED. The normal dosage of Sildenafil is 50mg, and this has the desired effect for the vast majority of men who use it. It can also be taken in 25mg and 100mg forms.
When you take Viagra (Sildenafil) for the first time, the most important thing is to relax and enjoy some sexual stimulation. This will give the drug the best chance to kick in and help you get the firm erection you’re looking for. Learn more about first-time use of Viagra on our blog.
Can I buy cheap Viagra online in the UK?
Viagra is the world’s most counterfeited drug – and there are many online vendors trying to pull a fast one. So if it looks like too much of a good deal, it most likely is.
Sildenafil was first brought to the UK market by global pharmaceutical giants, Pfizer, and it was only available under their brand name, Viagra. This exclusivity meant the price tag was high and many men couldn’t afford this type of legitimate ED medication.
In 2013, however, Pfizer’s patent expired, and it became legal to manufacture the drug under its generic name, Sildenafil. In 2018, Sildenafil no longer needed a prescription to be sold. Instead, licensed pharmacists judge whether it is safe for someone to take the drugs before they sell it.
Here at Manual, we provide a digital consulting service. The recommended retail price for branded Viagra Connect is £19.99 for four tablets - equivalent to about £5 per pill. At Manual, the same Sildenafil is available for as little as £2 per tablet.
What are the common side effects of Sildenafil?
Firstly, it’s important to know that side effects are rare. However, when they do occur, the most common side effects of Sildenafil are: headaches, facial flushing, indigestion, nasal congestion, dizziness, nausea, hot flushes, vision changes (such as having a blue colour tinge, or blurred vision).
Serious side effects can become more common when Sildenafil is misused, mixed with excessive alcohol, or due to drug interactions with other medications. Although rare, Priapism (an erection that lasts for 4 hours or more) is a serious side effect that requires immediate medical attention.
Please read the patient information leaflet carefully for a full list of side effects and advice. As with any drug, if you notice any adverse effects, stop taking it and seek medical advice.
Who shouldn’t take Sildenafil?
Women should never take Sildenafil, and nobody under the age of 18 – male or female. And, of course, if you don’t have erectile dysfunction, you shouldn’t use Sildenafil.
If you’ve been told by the doctor not to have sex – perhaps due to lack of fitness or a recent acute myocardial infarction (AMI) or stroke, you should also avoid Sildenafil. And generally, men who have had other heart problems needing care. These include: low blood pressure or uncontrolled high blood pressure (pulmonary arterial hypertension); unstable angina (chest pain), irregular heartbeat or palpitations (arrhythmia); valvular heart disease; cardiomyopathy; problems causing blood flow issues.
Other conditions may prohibit the use of Sildenafil, such as anatomical deformation of the penis (e.g. Peyronie's disease); loss of vision in one eye due to non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION) or hereditary degenerative retinal disorders like retinitis pigmentosa; severe renal impairment; any of the following: sickle cell anaemia, multiple myeloma or leukaemia, or active stomach ulcers.
And you should also confirm with your GP if you’re taking nitrates (nicorandil or other nitric oxide donors e.g. isosorbide mononitrate, isosorbide dinitrate); ‘poppers’ (e.g. amyl nitrite), or recreational stimulant drugs (e.g. cocaine, MDMA); riociguat or other guanylate cyclase stimulators; ritonavir; CYP3A4 inhibitors, e.g. saquinavir; cimetidine; itraconazole or ketoconazole; erythromycin or rifampicin; diltiazem; alpha-blockers; doxazosin or tamsulosin.
Before using Sildenafil, please read the Patient Information Leaflet supplied with your medication. This provides important information.
Are there alternatives to Sildenafil?
The Sildenafil in Viagra is one of a number of PDE5 enzyme inhibitors. Alternatives include Tadalafil (Cialis), Vardenafil (Levitra) and Avanafil (Spedra) – for which you do still need a prescription.
