    For how long did the effects of Viagra last for you? Pfizer says sildenafil can help for upto 4 hours but what has been your personal experience.

    I know I am asking too many questions on this lately, but I am close to buying it for the first time in my life and want to just discuss this before I take the plunge.

    There's no need to apologize for asking info on these boards as it's normal when being introduced to new medication to want to know as much about it as you can, from as many people as you can.

    Pfizer says it can last up to 4 hours, which seems like the norm from all of the personal accounts I've heard of. Whatever you do, especially since it's a new drug, go with the lower dosage at first and increase it from there if needed. Sometimes the fact that you're "taking something" will have positive effects on your body.

    Do NOT take more than one dose a day, it can have very serious repercussions so only take the prescribed amount. I find that we get lax with following the instructions on medication; for example how many times have we taken a couple more aspirins or antacid over the recommended dosage.

    So please follow your doctor's advice. I know I've mentioned some of this already in a few other posts, but it would be a shame to damage your penis while taking drugs to help you get an erection, you know?

    It depends on the dosage. 100gm Viagra pill is likely to last longer than 50gm. In my case, the erection potential can last at least 6 hours after the 100gms. However, I wouldn't advice taking Viagra all the time whenever you feel like. Never mix it with alcohol, caffeine or energy drinks.

    Viagra typically lasts between 4 and 6 hours, although as mentioned, it depends on the dosage. Also, the effects usually begin to diminish after two hours or so. There are other pills such as Cialis that have the same effect but are supposed to last longer, anywhere from 14 hours to two days.

    Of course this all depends on the person taking the medication and the dosage. What and how much you eat and drink also matters.

    It usually lasts around the 4 hours they say it does, but you need to watch not to take too much of it. I've known guys who have taken Viagra in the suggested amount, waited, and when nothing happens within 15 mins, they pop another pill in. Do not do this!!!!!!! It will work and you must wait. Also report any side effects you get, because for some people it's not all roses and hot sex. A friend of mine got the 1 in 10,000 symptoms and his eyes where bloodshot for a week.

    How long viagra lasts can depend on the individual and even though they say the average is around 4 hours, depending on the circumstances that isn't always the case. I can feel the benefits even after that.

    They say it takes on average around half an hour to work, but again, that seemed to vary with me and sometimes it could take up to an hour to feel something.

    Also don't forget what viagra does. All it does is relax the blood vessels so it's easier to be stimulated, it's not a case of pop a pill and you get an instant erection in half an hour. You still have to be turned on yourself and stimulated just like you would have to have been before without it.

    Lets look at the sildenafil 100mg concentration graph submitted by Pfizer. I have broken down the graph into 2 parts to analyze the duration of effectiveness for viagra/sildenafil. One picture wouldn't fit the window in decent enough size.

    Here is the sildenafil concentration during the first 12 hours.

    sildenafil-concentration-12-hours.jpg
    The peak concentration occurs from 30 minutes to 2 hours and good levels of sildenafil persists upto 4 hours. But there is still reasonable concentrations present till 6 hours and also at 8 hours. So some may experience some help from the medication even at 8 hours.

    Sildenafil concentration present from 12 hours to 24 hours
    sildenafil-concentration-14-24-hours.jpg
    Seems like it takes almost a whole day for the sildenafil concentration to almost completely fall off. Actually even after a day there's some negligible concentrations present in most people's body.

    ItsRichardItsRichard I hope this answers your question adequately.

    It's interesting to actually see the results instead of just talking about experiences.

    What the graph shows is what we already kind of know. Take it just before your going to be sexually active and you'll get around 2 to 3 hours when its working to its optimum before the effects start to wear off.

    the effectiveness of the viagra often lasts for 4 to 6 hours. This drug starts effecting within one hour of consuming. It is my personal experience and i have noticed that the effectiveness of viagra remains for 4 to 6 hours.

    I'm a diabetic, but I've never taken viagra since I've never needed to. I know of some people who do, and what they've told me of it is that it depends on how much you take of it. Supposedly it goes by dosage, you're not supposed to take too much of course, but if you do take more, it seems to last longer than not. You would want to consult your doctor who administered it to find out a safe dosage for you, and how much and how frequently you should use it.

    In my partner's experience, the effects last for around 4 hours - though he doesn't actually "want" sex for that whole time, obviously. It can be a little tiresome actually that he's still experiencing the physical effects even though the sex is over, however it is much better for that to be the case than it is to not be able to have it at all, which is of course the other option. You do right to ask questions about what you're taking, though, as you certainly need to know plenty about anything that will affect you in this way.

    You may take it up to 4 hours before sexual activity. VIAGRA usually starts to work with in 30-60 minutes. Also it can vary from person to person. Moreover, there is no way to increase the speed of the viagara to affect on your body.

    For me, the effect of viagra lasts upto 10 hours which is much higher than what even the manufacturer claims lol. There was a time that I had intercourse at night and I woke up in the morning feeling horny and I was able to do it again. But maybe I was fully stimulated that's why the sexual urge lingered.

    Earlier this year, I used viagra 3 times (from what I remember). I had to take it at least 1 hour before the sexual encounter and to be sure, I take it earlier like 2 hours. And then I have to get busy after taking viagra for it can cause palpitation. And although my heart is healthy, anxiety would set in and I would lose my bearing as if the viagra is wasted. When I divert my mind from the viagra, I would feel normal. And when I start conditioning my mind to sex, the erection comes in naturally.

    3-5 hours is the average although some people like me experience the benefits for much longer. I will advise be sure you really need this drug before going for it. Some like me get addicted to the point they must have it before sex.

    It does depend on a few factors like height, weight, fat content etc. like any other pill or drug that is taken. It also depends on the kind of formulation be it Sildenafil or Sildenafil citrate.

    For me it worked after about 30 minutes on an empty stomach and can last anywhere from hours to days to weeks I have found it just gives me a better all-around erection even 1 to 2 weeks after. Since I've started taking this it has really has helped in every aspect. The only caveat is, make sure you to take on an empty stomach with minimal alcohol consumption and make sure to be stimulated sexually for it to work best. A true true miracle medicine.

    Erectile Dysfunction is a major problem in the USA, UK, France, Australia, and many major countries. People try various methods to try to solve their Ed problem but not solve their problem properly. Many Ed expert doctors widely suggest. Generic Viagra Cenforce Sildenafil tablet for cures Ed problem. Another drug is (Tadalafil 20mg) which famous as "Weekend pill" and "Generic Cialis" it is Vidalista. Many of my friends suggest me trusted and safest online pharmacy Generic Villa is good for ed treatment pills and I fully satisfy with this site. As per my experience do not take sildenafil and tadalafil without concern with your doctor.

    Viagra helps to maintain the erection after ejaculation and reduces the refractory time before a second erection can be obtained. Vilitra 20mg Tablet is used to treat male sexual function problems. In combination with sexual stimulation, It works by increasing blood flow to the penis to help a man get and keep an erection. This drug does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases.

    Viagra stands in the men's body for more than 6 hours, high dose viagra will stand for more than a day, but men should use the proper dose based on their body health. Before going to take this pill, men should seek doctor advice, it will help to avoid problem in the coming days.
