Review by lonely in town (taken for 1 to 6 months):
sildenafil for Erectile Dysfunction: I am 75 and have diabetes and high blood pressure both under control. I have been inactive sexually for 5 years and recently met someone who wanted to be intimate. I got a prescription for Viagra 100 mg and found it not very successful in resolving my erectile dysfunction. May be I've been inactive too long or my diabetes and blood pressure complicated my condition.
Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: Hi. I am 49 years old. Two years ago I was promoted to a senior management position. The extra stress at work was all to much and this has contributed to my ability to maintain an adequate erection for sex. I spoke to my Doctor and he suggested "Viagra 50 mg" for my problem. It takes around 40 minutes to work and is worth the wait and the money! I find the effects of this medicine lasts for around 12 hours and is best taken without alcohol and on an empty stomach. The first three times I used Viagra, there were the side effects of a stuffy nose, some minor heartburn and diarrhoea the next day. By the fourth pill the side effects were all but gone! My wife is not aware that I take Viagra and she comments how good our sex has become. Thanks V

Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I am 63 yrs young, a veteran with some health issues which causes some problems due to pain. The pain is so distracting that I wasn't able to achieve
and maintain an erection. My Doctor suggested Viagra 100mg. While I still experience pain I am able to perform , enjoy myself and my loving wife is very happy. It's been a real blessing.

Review by Daughter of PAH patient (taken for 1 to 2 years):
Revatio (sildenafil) for Pulmonary Hypertension: My father has been on Revatio for 20 months. His quality of life is greatly improved from the standpoint of adverse side effects he was experiencing while on another PAH medication. His breathing issues are still well controlled and there are no side effects. As for high insurance copays, Pfizer( manufacturer of Revatio) has a terrific Patient Assistance Program that is based on income. Apply online at Pfizer.com. The form is available there and must be completed by patient and prescribing physician. There is no reason not to ask for financial help when it is available for your medications. Most manufacturers have assistance programs so do a little bit of research and ask your doctor if he/she knows of any assistance.
Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: Was struggling to maintain an erection for 3 months, took 50mg of Viagra, worked in under an hour and it worked, despite the fact I was very anxious. Only tried it 3 times but it works every time. Its gold and my erections where rock hard. My girlfriend said I was better then ever. Thank you Viagra for saving me. Side effects, headache but only once.

Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: Just used Viagra 50mg tablet for the first time. I'm 43 and during sex my erection can soften. Results were amazing, hard erection all night and in the morning, wife and I very happy, had slight flu like symptoms later on. No headache and nothing serious. Would recommend and advise to buy branded tablets. I took Pfizer.

Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: My partner has ED occasionally. He was advised to try Viagra. It was effective after about 2 hours when he achieved a really veiny, stiff erection. This was a great improvement and lasted as long as we needed and again the next morning, however, the side effects were unpleasant flu like symptoms ( ie. headache, sore throat, blocked nose etc.) which lasted for many days after. For this reason and due to the high expense we will only use this on 'special occasions' from now on, until we find an alternative.

sildenafil for Erectile Dysfunction: I am 70 years of age and for the first time have suffered erection problems. One dose of 50mg gave me an erection like I was 40 years younger and my confidence was boosted immeasurably. I will be taking it for while now so cannot recommend it highly enough
Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: Recently my wife commented that my erections were not as firm as they had been and that part way through sex I lost the erection. I'm 58 and we are a very active couple. I decided to try 50 mg Viagra. The Viagra was excellent and my erections have been really firm every time I have used it. I take it an hour before sex and it allows me to achieve a really good erection that lasts as long as we want to make love. My wife and I are really pleased with the results. If we use it at night I wake with an erection which again is really firm. Both my wife and I really recommend Viagra as it has improved our sex life a great deal.

Review by Best thing ever! (taken for 6 months to 1 year):
Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I was having erectile dysfunction problems with my new partner, tried Cialis to no effect then was prescribed 100mg Viagra. Although expensive it was well worth it! I now get erections like I did when I was 20 (I'm 47)!. If you have erectile dysfunction get to your doctor, and get them prescribed, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

Review by Backwoods (taken for less than 1 month):
Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I'm 71 and still love sex with my wife. Some times I get distracted and loose partial erection so I tried Viagra for the first time last night. This was after seeing my physician. OMG. We had drinks and dinner before going to bed. Took Viagra and thirty min. later was hard but only after being stimulated. I lasted until after I wore her out, not bragging, and I was able to make love again 30 min later. During the night after going asleep I would get close to my wife and would get hard. I experienced this maybe 4 times during the night. I experienced some stuffiness and slight headache but it was all worth it. Wow!

Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: My husband suffers erectile dysfunction occasionally, which is mainly due to his anxiety. He was prescribed Viagra and takes 12.5mg with water and on an empty stomach. After about 1 hour he gets a great erection which lasts about about 45 minutes. This is great for both of us. The side effects he experiences are a mild headache and nasal congestion, which lasts for about 6 hours. I would highly recommend this medication but would suggest taking time to find the best dosage to suit the individual needs. We will continue with our current low dosage as this works very well for us.

sildenafil for Erectile Dysfunction: Viagra is the best medication I've ever had in my life. I was having problems with erection so I went to my doctor who gave me a 25mg to try. I went two hours and half non-stop. I didn't tell her the secret so she kept asking "but why is it extremely strong today sweetheart?" This has improved my sex life and my confidence.
Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I'm 51 years old. It has been difficult to maintain an erection for a long time, especially if we switch positions frequently.
I tried Viagra for the first time, last night, and all that I can say is, I'm sold! I got a nice, firm erection that was ready to do battle for at least 4 hours. I have no idea, beyond that, because I was tired and went to sleep. What was surprising was that some 8 hours after taking it, upon waking, I was ready to go at it again with a moments notice, just as firm as the night before. That was fantastic. My doctor prescribed 100 mg; however, after reading this forum, I cut the pill in half. 50 mg was the perfect dose! My partner loved it! She was very happy.
I was able to get a coupon to try 3 pills for free.

Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: All I can say is thanks to my doctor for Viagra!
I'm only 48 but had been suffering occasional issues with not getting or keeping an erection and it was becoming an issue. As any man knows...once you think too much about how important it is to get the erection, it's not going to stay or happen!
Doctor recommended trying Viagra 50mg to get back into the swing of it after the usual checks. He actually said probably cutting the 50mg pill in half would work, but I popped in the 50mg anyhow at the end of a meal out and gave myself the recommended 1 hour. Amazing results, lasted 30 mins on this! Poor wife had to take a breather halfway but she loved it! Half a pill next time, had slight headiness. Repeat prescription for us!
