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!

Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I'm 46, healthy bull of a man but use high blood pressure medication for the past year. The medication has made my erections not quite as firm as I like and can remember. Viagra - wow. Made me as hard as I was when I was in my 20s. I forgot what that was like. My wife and I enjoyed the heck out of my magic blue pill.

Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: Suffered from occasional erectile dysfunction. Doctor said it was my very stressful workload. Tried the 50mg pill and results were amazing. Wife and I are in mid-30s and very active with a 3 year old. Haven't had to use the pill too much, probably once every 5 weeks or so. Highly recommend Viagra.
Review by happytimes (taken for less than 1 month):
Viagra (sildenafil): Wonderful experience. 59 years old and the first pill was 100mg- I was 20 again. Very hard erection and I experienced great sex with my wife. Cost is expensive and my insurance did not cover. On the second try I cut the 2nd pill in half and had a great time. Felt the flushing but it was a mild after effect or symptom. I want to try a different erectile dysfunction medication. I take a statin and with age my erection was diminishing. With Viagra I get a very hard erection that lasts.
sildenafil for Erectile Dysfunction: Worked great until my doc got me on blood pressure medicine (Lisinopril 10mg) then it took twice as long to take effect. I was using generic due to cost and thought it was just poor quality. Turns out its the blood pressure medicine so I stopped taking it for two days and everything works again.
Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I have been using Viagra for about 2 weeks. I previously was taking 5mg Cialis for daily use for about a year. That was great at first but firmness tended to be not as strong at times. My doctor gave me 50mg Viagra samples and my wife and I could tell a big difference! It is more expensive but you could buy the 100mg pills and cut them into halves or even quarters. I am over 50 and have great sex with my wife at least 3 - 4 times weekly. Stay away from the fake stuff.
I am very thankful to the doctors who made available these medications in my generation! When I think about it, my sex life is greater now then when I was 20!

Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: Viagra does require verbal communication about desire with my partner since it does take about an hour to be most effective. So we talk about wanting to make love later and the anticipation can build which is nice. I have found over the last 8 year a definate tolerance to the effects of Viagra where it is much less effective but that might be just getting old.
Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: Wow! After a 1 year of frustration this really worked. I got an erection after 15 minutes and was able to put on a condom without rushing or worrying about losing my erection. It was so nice.

Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I'm 48 and it makes me feel 20 again "down there". I take 25mg on an empty stomach pre-dissolved in water and it works in 10 minutes. Side effects have been very mild..
stuffy nose and an occasional light headache. Allows me to be very effective for about 4 to 6 hours with a quick recovery time. This is a great medicine, but don't overuse. Taking it everyday is not as sweet as once or twice a week.

Viagra (sildenafil): Best results for me if I take the 50 mg dose before eating anything. After a meal, I find that Viagra does not help me get an erection for hours, if at all. If taken on an empty stomach, it works fast.
I also get flushed, but this tells me that it's working. I get occasional headaches from Viagra, but the side effects are well worth it!

Viagra (sildenafil): First time I took Viagra it took 30 to 40 mins to work.
Work very well for me with no side effects. Was able to have sex more then once. My partner is also very pleased with the results. Thank you Viagra.
Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: Tried a sample from my doctor, ended up wasting 3 of the 4 due to the wife's waffling moods. The last one worked great, rock hard and lasting. Kind of a pricy gamble with the timing and such.
