Viagra Tablets

Viagra® (sildenafil citrate) is a prescription drug used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). This is a medical condition characterized by a repeated inability to maintain an erection that is firm enough for sexual intercourse. Viagra comes in tablet form and is taken as needed before sexual activity (but no more than once a day).
 
The usual starting dose of these tablets is Viagra 50 mg; this amount may be increased if the medication is not working as well as you and your healthcare provider expect, or it may be decreased if you experience bothersome side effects.
 
When taking Viagra, it is important to take it exactly how your healthcare provider recommends -- this ensures a safe, effective treatment process. This medication can be taken with or without food, and is typically taken an hour before sexual activity.
