Viagra Strengths

Available only by prescription, Viagra® (sildenafil citrate) is a medication commonly used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). Several different strengths of Viagra are available; the one your healthcare provider recommends will depend on various factors, such as your age and other medical conditions you may have.
 
Although there are several available strengths, Viagra is typically started at 50 mg, taken one hour prior to sexual activity. However, you may take the drug anywhere from 4 hours to 30 minutes before sexual activity. Depending on how well it works or any side effects you may experience, your healthcare provider may increase or decrease your dosage. The maximum recommended dose is Viagra 100 mg.
 
Regardless of the strength prescribed, this medication should be taken exactly how your healthcare provider recommends. It can be taken with or without food, and should be used no more than once a day.
