What is the correct dose of Viagra Connect?

Although Viagra has been around for over 20 years, there are a lot of misconceptions how to take it correctly. One of the most crucial aspects of taking Viagra - or its over the counter version, Viagra Connect - is making sure you have the right dose.

Like all medicines, if taken incorrectly, Viagra can do serious harm. Side effects can vary from the inconvenient - blue tinted vision - to the dangerous - experiencing a priapism. It’s important to make sure that you’re taking the correct dose. If you find that the medicine is not having the desired effect, the answer isn’t necessarily to increase the dose.

One of the main differences between Viagra and Viagra Connect is the doses that both are available in. Viagra Connect, which you can buy from your pharmacist, is only available in the most common starting dose - 50mg. On the other hand, standard Viagra tablets, which are only available with a prescription, are available as 25mg, 50mg and 100mg doses.

How do I know what dose is right for me?

If you’re taking Viagra Connect, you only have the option of taking the 50mg option - you should never take two tablets in 24 hours.

If you’re taking Viagra, the recommended starting dose is 50mg. If you find you’re experiencing strong adverse side effects, such as back pain or tinted vision, your doctor may suggest that you take a lower dose of 25mg instead.

Not everyone finds that Viagra works for them the first time they take it. This is totally normal, and some men find that it can take up to eight attempts for Viagra to work for them - that’s why we recommend that your first purchase should be an eight pack of tablets. Remember that when you’re taking Viagra, you shouldn’t take more than one pill in a 24 hour period in an attempt to increase the effect.

What is Viagra doesn’t work for me?

If you find that after trying Viagra on eight different attempts, the 50mg tablet is not effective, you should speak to your doctor. They may recommend that you take the 100mg tablet instead, but this isn’t for everyone. You should only take 100mg of Viagra if you are given it on a prescription from your doctor.

If after several attempts you find that 100mg of Viagra is not having the desired effect, your doctor may recommend another type of treatment for you.

Viagra contains the active ingredient sildenafil, which is a type of chemical known as a PDE5 inhibitor. There are other kinds of PDE5 inhibitors, sold under the names Cialis, Spedra and Levitra. Your doctor may advise that one of these alternatives is better for you to take, as not everyone responds Viagra.

If you are unsure what dose to take, speak to your doctor. The starting dose is 50mg, and you should not take more than one tablet in any 24 hour period to try to improve the effect.
