When should I take Viagra for best results?

Viagra is a medication of choice in the treatment of the erectile dysfunction. Nowadays, it is one of the most effective products to improve the potency. However, to achieve the best results, it is necessary to read the instruction and strictly follow all recommendations.

Viagra does not act instantly. At first, the pill goes to the GIT, and it is absorbed into the systemic blood flow in the intestine, and then the active ingredients reach the required area through the blood. This process takes at least an hour, and therefore if you want to be ready for the sexual intercourse, take Viagra about 60 minutes before the sexual activity.

But to achieve the best results, it is necessary to follow several rules:

  • Viagra should be taken on an empty stomach, it accelerates the onset of the effect
  • Do not take the pills after food, because it may slow the onset of the action by 20-30 minutes, and Cmax by about one hour1
  • Take the pills with a full glass of water for better digestion

But in order to be in the best shape, it is recommended to take Viagra 90 minutes before the sexual intercourse. The peak of the Sildenafil concentration in the blood plasma is achieved in 1-1,5 hours after the use of the pills. The maximal dilation of the blood vessels and the maximal blood flow to the penis happen at this moment. Due to this, your erection will be hard as a rock and you will be able to have sex even during the severest type of the erectile dysfunction.

Bear in mind that Viagra acts for 4 hours, and this period should be controlled before Sildenafil loses its pharmacological properties.
