For Erectile Dysfunction: “Having struggled for about 12 months to maintain an erection my Dr recommended Viagra. Wow minimal side effects occasional headache but that's because blood is rushing away from my head. The erections are like when I was 20. Takes effect after about 30 minutes and my wife only needs to look at me and I get hard not lasting any longer but the beauty is I can get hard 4 or 5 times over 3 to 5 hours and again in the morning. We are late 40's but we feel like 20 year Olds.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “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.”

For Sexual Dysfunction, SSRI Induced: “A strong pill for erection but with some side effects. 12.5mg works great (strong erection) 30 min-1h before and lasts for 3h-4h. Its easy to recover erection but can be lost sometimes. Side effects (0h-4h): - Stuffy nose Side effects (4h-12h): - Stomach discomfort, indigestion - Sleepiness, trouble sleeping Tried Levitra, not strong as Viagra but some side effects. I'm now trying Avanafil (25mg) and by now no side effects (maybe because it PDE5 highly selectivity) but lasts only 2h.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “At 96 I use it when my wife will let me, if you know what I mean! I my age I will only buy 10 pills at a time. Don't want to leave any behind when I go! Works better before a meal or early in the morning. Have had headaches and loss of vision but I'm on my last lap any how.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I am 46 and found that I was not consistently staying hard after prolonged sex or masturbating. My recovery time after orgasm seemed like days. I am not on any other medication, very active, and eat healthy. I also do not smoke or drink alcohol. I decided to bring it up and get a sample. I was pleasantly surprised! I did get a flush feeling that went away. Also, I might get a slight headache the next morning but can be cleared up by taking something. However, the benefits were solid erections when turned on. It also lasts, like others mentioned, into the next day but not as strong. Again, you must be turned on for this to work. If you are not attracted, in the mood, or desensitized/overworked then it may not work well.”

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.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I'm a 28 year old guy with erection difficulty, mostly I think from performance anxiety and just life anxiety too. I've taken Viagra when I need it for over a year now and it is AMAZING. It will give you firm and lasting erections an hour before taking it..I take 50 mg but find sometimes I take 75 mg if I know I'll have a longer night with the girlfriend ;) Now, it is expensive...even with insurance it costs about $30 per 100 mg pill. So splitting it would be $15 per 50 mg dose but it is SOO worth it being happy with my girlfriend..it has improved confidence in my sex life immensely..not always worrying if I can get and maintain an erection. The side effects for me (but manageable): stuffy nose, headache, bloodshot eyes, heartburn.”

Ant · Taken for 1 to 2 years October 2, 2018

For Erectile Dysfunction: “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!!!”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I gave it a 7 only because I have friends that have used it and it worked really well. I have been taking this 25mg and does absolutely nothing. I've had bloodwork all levels are fine however I do take a list of medications that could be stopping it from working. I'm 49 and not sure what is next I even took 4 (100mg) one night at the same time and nothing.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “Viagra has been an absolute miracle for me. For a while before I started taking it I was having trouble getting and maintaining strong erections. The best I could manage was a "semi" where my penis would get to around 60% hardness. Erectile dysfunction is difficult to deal with for men of any age, especially so when you are in your 20s (I'm 24) and are supposed to be at your peak sexually. I'm using the 25mg Pfizer tablets and they work amazingly well. No side effects. I now have very strong and rock hard erections. I'm a much happier and relaxed man now. It is quite expensive but they are worth every penny.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I take 100mg Viagra on a regular basis and it is wonderful. My erections are not as good as they once were although they are still firm enough for penetration and stay firm enough for a "quickie" When we want a longer and more vigorous session I take 100mg Viagra and this ensures that my erection is very firm as I was long ago and I can maintain the erection for as long as is required. My wife loves it and often gives me a pill when she is wanting a really good time.”

Ficky taggi April 14, 2017

For Erectile Dysfunction: “Viagra found working for me after 2 hours and last up to 16 hours. It is better to take it half an hour before dinner it will digest before you take dinner and doesn't get mixed with food for better results. For the first I have taken before 30 min of scheduled intercourse and nothing happened later I have experienced good results when taken before night dinner. Time can be flexible as it last for 6 hours as per manufacturer and for me its up to 26 hours . Best to take 2 hours before bedtime and don't worry about erection it will not automatic. Erections happen only after stimulation. Great pill thanks for restoring my sexual life.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I was curious about Viagra for a few years every time my doctor asked if "everything is still working". I finally asked for a prescription, and wish I had asked sooner. My wife and I are in mid-60s and Viagra is making me totally dependable in the bedroom again, several times per week. Wife cuts 100 mg pills into quarters, which makes the cost bearable. Planning a session ahead of time adds to the excitement. It is great to be rock-hard again, and my climaxes are more intense. No side effects, except increased sensitivity to sunlight and a bluish tint. I highly recommend it to any guy who thinks he needs help.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “In my late 50's erections had become unreliable during intercourse. As erections became more difficult to maintain anxiety grew. Talking to my doctor made me realize I was not the only man suffering from this at this age. Viagra was prescribed. I use the 50 mg. and am now able to have great sex again and maintain a great erection. Side effects - hot, flushed skin, a little blurry vision - for a short while - worth the benefits. If taken at night by the next morning it still has an effect - with stimulation you can again enjoy again! My wife was amazed at how hard and long lasting erections are. We totally enjoy using Viagra and our sex life is back!”

Side effects, headache but only once.”

Anon wife · Taken for 1 to 6 months July 22, 2013

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.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I took Viagra 50mg tonight for first time. I was able to get an erection and maintain it to orgasm but still experienced some softness during intercourse. Not sure if I should ask the doctor to up my dosage. I did experience facial flushing and some sensitively to light but so far that's it.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I'm 78. Been on Viagra for one and a half years. Started on 50mg and reduced to 25 mg which still works great, no failures! Hard erection for at least 30 minutes. Wonderful for a long foreplay session. Powerful orgasms and a morning hard-on to remind you of a great time. No side effects. Highly recommended.”

Hard AS · Taken for less than 1 month December 12, 2016

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I turned 50 and found I had difficulty in obtaining a good erection, the wife suggested we give Viagra a try and was prescribed 50mg tablets. Tried one the first night and within 45 minutes felt flushed and very excited, went to the bathroom and after a little coaxing came out with the biggest erection I had for years much to my wife's pleasure. Climax was very intense and was able to get erect again shortly afterwards. Used three tablets in the two weeks and satisfaction to both myself and my wife every time.”

Pete · Taken for 6 months to 1 year May 3, 2018

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I'm 71 and been using viagra or sildenafil for about a year. It is an wonderful drug but getting the dosage right is critical. I can still get an erection without help but it had become a bit unreliable. I started off taking half a 50mg tablet . It certainly worked but I felt it was just a bit too much. I now cut tablet into 4 and find a quarter of a tablet makes all the difference and barely gives me any side effects. The half tablet dose was too much for me. It gave a very strong erection but reduced the sensations and gave me a slight headache . So I reckon it's worth experimenting to find the minimum dose you can get away with. (NB the low dose works better on a reasonably empty stomach)”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “Viagra is the only medicine I have taken long term , ie more than 2 years , it has really been a help for me , without it my erections are much softer , unreliable and short duration , Wife couldn't be happier , only problem was cost , I live in Australia but travel a lot for work in south east asia on one of my business trips to Thailand , I got severe food poisoning and had to go to a local doctor , he asked me if I was taking any medication which might effect the medicine he was prescribing me and I just said the only thing I take is Viagra , he laughed and said you must be rich guy , he asked me if I want to try Thai Viagra called sidegra , it's really cheap here , so from that day forward I've been using sidegra and buying it online.”
