Reviews for Sildenafil

"I agree with what "back in the game" said 10/26/2018. If you can enter a condom you can enter a woman. A condom is extremely difficult to apply without a full erection. Test sildenafil on a condom first. I have also had luck trimming the bush. Don't know if this is psychosomatic or what, but it works, or at least helps. Makes me look bigger/feel bigger. I feel fuller and firmer. Also, my erections don't wilt right after sex. Sildenafil stays in my system. Can go again within the hour if needed. Don't always ejaculate a 2nd time, but that is ok. Have had no over-the-counter that worked at all. "

Viagra (sildenafil): "I'm 72 years old and first used sildenafil 7 years ago after a family tragedy 'killed' my libido for about a month. On restarting sex only a soft erection was possible and no penetration. I got prescribed sildenafil 50mg and right from first use it was very successful and took away the anxiety. Have used this ever since and am always very hard and capable of any penetration. Facial flushing/slight headache only side effects. Now use 75mg dose and wait 90mins to make sure if had some alcohol."

"I’m 61 years old and was experiencing mild ED so now I take three 20mg sildenafil tablets about and hour before doing the wild thing and amazing things happen like they did when I was in my 20’s. My wife has said “OH MY GOD!” more times in the last month than in the previous 5 years. Makes us feel young again."

"I began having problems with ED in my early 40’s but it became progressively worse as I aged (I’m 48 now). I finally had “the talk” with my Doctor last week and he prescribed Sidenafil and the results have been better than I could have hoped. My wife and I made a game out of it. I took it and after about 30 minutes I could feel it coming on. We had sex 3 times in the next couple of hours. She and I both loved it. I got the same results last night. In fact, I’ve even had great sex when I hadn’t taken it. The only side effects I’ve experienced is mild flushing. As for advice? If your having problems with ED go to your doctor, I waited WAY too long. And keep your partner in the loop, they’ll be in for a for a few “long nights” anyway!"

"Just tried 40 mg of Sildenafil and it worked great. I'm 52 y/o male with very minor ED issue. Took it around 11 PM and was ready to go right away. We fooled around for a while and I was erect, then we went to sleep (no longer erect), then around 8 AM the next day when I needed it the medicine was still working (got erect right away). Dr. advised that it works for up to 24 hours and it seemed to be the case! So far, so good! I should have got them sooner!"

"Sildenafil is amazing I took 80mg the first time and my wife and me could not believe how hard It was after the third time my wife said it felt to hard and asked me to start taking less of them. So it’s working great for me I’m only got 30 but might have the doctor prescribe me more. I got slight head ache but worth it"

"I'm 68 years old I get semi hard and can still climax but not hard enough for penetration . My Dr prescribed Sildenafil Citrate 100mg. I first I tried a half pill 50mg no luck didn't work. A few days later tried the whole pill 100mg no go. This doesn't work for me. I've only taken 2 pills so far and will no longer use it as it's a big waste of money."

"I don't necessarily need this medication each time I have intercourse but when I do use it I have fantastic results. Feel like a teenager again (LOL). This med has worked every time and the girls I've been with, young and old, have never been let down with the erections I get with this medication. It seems it work for many hours for me. A++"

"Sildenafil did not work for me at all, not even the 100 MG pill. This drug is a total waste of my money for me. You can't contact the manufacture to try to get answers about it."

Viagra (sildenafil): "I am 37 with ED problem. When I first got 25 mg doses it didn't work for me. I then tried the 100mg dose and it worked. So it's just the perfect dose. It varies from person to person and their medical conditions."

"So I’m younger then a lot of the posts on here, but for whatever reason for the past couple years I had never been fully hard, and recently I wasn’t able to get hard at all. A lot of anxiety came with that when it came to sex and I think it just made it worse and worse (I stress pretty easily) got all the tests done on prostate, testosterone, etc. everything looked pretty good, my doctor recommended this. I took 60mg and 45 minutes in I could tell it was working. I told my wife to meet me in the room, and we had amazing sex. I came before her but was still rock hard so was able to keep going until she did (and was still hard after that) such a great feeling to be able to do that. I think I’m gonna try 40mg next time cause I probably could’ve gone 3 more times haha. I highly recommend, and apparently there’s a lot of younger guys with this issue, you’re not alone!"

"I am 75 years old in good health and have been taking generic Viagra 100mg for 5 years with great results. Side effects are flushing, headache, vision (everything seems brighter and whiter). Alcohol is a definite no! I can achieve erection up to 24 hours after taking the medication. I have tried Cialis which works equally as well but has additional side effects such as pain in the thighs and back. Definitely recommend taking Viagra for a fulfilling sexual experience!"

"Recent increasing softness and then failure to maintain my erection....then a vicious cycle of anxiety that it would reoccur caused it to reoccur. Called my PCP office and they phoned in the script...wish I had done so earlier, it was that easy. $19 for 30 20mg pills. Took two early the next morning and they worked like magic once foreplay began - standing at attention, after an hour or so wait. Next opportunity, took one with the same effect. A nice side benefit is that my wife and I now need to actually talk about our sexual relationship - the wait time does make things less spontaneous. But at 65cents a pill, I can take one "just in case" she's in the mood...they do require desire and stimulation so without that it's not like I'm walking around with a stiffy in my trousers! I'm very happy with generic sildenafil, and am lucky - no side effects!"

"I am 54 years old with ED. I recently tried Sildenafil 20 mg for the first time. It is amazing how well it works for me. My erections are like they were when I was much younger. It enables us to have intercourse again. The strange part is it does not cause and erection on it's own. You have to be aroused. The erection goes away after ejaculating. I am only mad that I waited so long. The only side effect I noticed is a dull headache. Not bad, and well worth it."

"Stuff is amazing. I have a really high sex drive and my wife is 10 years younger. I'm 48 and have regular erections but not like I did in my 20s. Honest to God this stuff makes me feel 20. I take 3 of the 20mg pills about 1.5 hours before sex. Omg I can go forever rock hard multiple positions you name it. I do get the flushing of the face and a headache but don't notice it during sex. I feel it afterwards but who cares"

"I am 63 and have experienced mild ED symptoms for a couple of years. Usually just occasional inability to maintain an erection. Finally tried sildenafil a couple of times. Honestly I was amazed at the difference. I assume my ED has been encroaching for a while now without me being aware. I guess I didn’t really notice the decline until it became a problem. After 2 times taking one 20mg tablet I am sold. Only took it 30 minutes prior. This was the best sex I can remember having in the last 20 years. Really hard erection. It was like being a teenager but actually knowing what I’m doing. Lasted much longer but incredible orgasm. Side effects were minimal. Both times I woke up a few hours later with a mild headache and a stuffy nose. Took ibuprofen and a Benadryl and all was good. This was something that I wish I had tried years earlier."

"I have read multiple experiences on here, but not one word re putting on a condom. First comes the condom, then comes the penetration. Think how embarrassing it is to not be able to get a condom on in the first place. Maybe someone has mentioned the condom situation on here, but I sure didn't see it. After taking sildenafil that was a huge plus for me, finally I was firm enough for the condom! I take 40mg 30 minutes before on a fairly light stomach (haven't eaten much). Once the condom easily goes on, think how much that boosts your confidence. Penetration a piece of cake after that. Hope this helps. Oh, and I pay 50 cent per 20 mg tablet. My sexual activity is not constant (not in a marriage or relationship). It fluctuates due to dating circumstance. Too much information?"

"50 yrs old. ED started mid 40's. Tried Cialis - sometimes worked. Got this and WHAM! Took a test dose of 60 mg and did not tell my g/f because that night - I wanted to make sure it worked. 2 hours later BAM! I stopped her from making dinner and led her in the bedroom. Haven't had that stamina since I was in my 20's! Need less to say we are both smiling and glad a generic form of Viagra is now available. YAY!!!!! is all I can say. I was about to give up and live a life of no sex - which was not an option for me."

"I have diabetes and as a result I had not been able to have a sexual experience with my wife. I have tried various tablets. I was so pleased that we found sildenfil ranbaxy, and on prescription and I am pleased that now my wife and I can have a full and active sex life"

"tried lower doses but the 100mg seems to be amount needed for me. Main issues for me are the side effects of stuffy sinus and dull headache. I take a antihistamine for the nose and a couple of advil for the head ache and does the trick."

Viagra (sildenafil): "I'm 48 and I dont have any problem getting an erection, I still fancy my wife very much. This issue I have is maintaining it, then it became a psychologically problem. Been on this amazing drug now for over a year and it works very well for me. In fact I love the intense erection it gives me. yes I get facial flushing and a slight headache but ibuprofen sorts that out. If nothing else, I oddly like the flushing now. It makes me feel ready.... I started on 50mg and then took myself up to 75mg as I felt it was not as intense as it used to be. For me personally, it tales about 1.5 hours to kick in. I love it!!!"

Viagra (sildenafil): "This is an absolutely fantastic medication, has vastly improved intimacy and sex with partner, self confidence and self esteem. I was hard enough to penetrate but would lose erection and this, while partner was fully supportive and patient would cause upset and tension, sex was not a pleasant experience. Now, fantastic, having fun with my partner again have a fully hard and lasting erection. Can sometimes delay climax but not to the point of becoming a problem. Have had minor headaches and flushing but nothing major, I can find it difficult to organism as I mentioned above but again its just being patient. My relationship is fantastic now and I feel like a proper man again. As I didn't before. Don't want to have to use this forever though but will continue to use this for a few months. Can be a little frustrating in the sense that you don't always know when you and your partner are going to have sex as obviously unplanned sex is more fun rather than being "planned" which can be a little strange."

"Started having a problem with unreliable erections a year or so ago. Went to my doctor and he wanted to try "T" injections first, with some success. The "T" shots put LOTS of ammo in the gun, but again unreliable erections made it frustrating. Went back and asked for Viagra meds and he said, "no problem, it's 2018, we can fix that problem!" Tried my first pill last weekend, took the pill on a full stomach, so it took a little longer to work, but when it did, WOW! Strong orgasms! Face and ears felt hot for while. Like others, the erection ability carried over to the next morning. Great meds make it seem like 1969!!"

"My husband (44) takes 20mg an hour or so before we ‘get busy’. Works amazing. Makes him erect with hardly any effort, last longer and bigger than before. I’m just sorry we didn’t discover this years earlier."
