I know my best reaction to Viagra is on an empty stomach. However, if I am having sex about an hour after a meal, should I take the pill before the meal (i.e., about two-three hours before having sex) or after the meal?
This question has also been asked and answered here: Cialis vs Viagra - What's the difference between them?
Someone once ask me what he was supposed to do while he waited for the viagra to work, I told him one word, foreplay. If you're all ready as soon as you're done eating, I can guarantee you she isn't. I wouldn't suggest you take it before the meal, then eat. The time it takes you if you take it half an hour after you eat, gives you time to be a little romantic.
Clinically speaking, you should take VIAGRA about one hour before you plan to have sex. If you take VIAGRA after a high-fat meal (such as a cheeseburger and french fries), the medicine may take a little longer to start working. You will have to experiment on what your additional timeframe is after a meal. I hope you know how to use the additional time.

Here is what works for me.
A lite meal on date night.
Wait 1 hour after dinner before taking viagra.
Wait 1 more hour before beginning love making.
Sometimes I will add a extra 10 mg to the 50 mg I normally take.

A scientific study in 2007 found that "No significant loss of efficacy occurs when sildenafil is taken shortly before or with a meal. The duration of action for sildenafil may exceed 10 hours."
In other words, food may not have any major affect.
The best solution I've come up with is to take Viagra on an empty stomach (4+ hours after last food intake), wait at least 45 minutes after taking it, then eat a light meal, and have sex anytime (within a couple of hours) after that light meal. I know it sounds like a hassle, but it's worth it. Anyway, that's my $0.02 -- Rod
