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.

Viagra (sildenafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I took Viagra last night for the first time. Took 50mg waited 50 minutes and nothing. Took 50 more and since last night I've had four strong erection 4x what I normally have had. Strongly recommend. Much more confidence in myself.
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!

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!

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!
