Just got prescribed viagara curious about dosage.
« on: March 25, 2019, 11:38:20 PM »

Hey there. I'm a 20ish year old male. I have to wait to see another uro for nearly a year. In the meantime I managed to get prescribed viagara and consider myself very lucky.

During sexual activities I find I'm 10-20% away from where I need to be. But I also lose the erection fairly quickly now. This was not previously as much of an issue.

I'm thinking of starting by cutting the tabs into quarters and going from there. For a dose of 12.5mg. Anyone have any experience with this? Any recommendations?

12.5 is going to be too low ... I assume you got the generic?  the pills are much better for cutting than the brand.  Start with 25 mg .... look for erection quality, should be good and stiff for penetration.  Should take about 45 minutes to kick in nicely, ideal time is 2-4 hour window after taking, but should work 6 hours or so.  A lower dose might decrease that time. 

If 25 works and side effects are tolerable you can try a lower dose, but i think you are getting sub-therapeutic much below that.  Side effects to watch for are stuffy nose and possible headache.  Vision issues can happen but are rarer.

The higher in dose you go the worse the worse the nasal stuffiness will get and the chances of a headache go up.  I also find I need to take a dump when I take viagra.  Kind of weird, and not great for wanting to get naked with a chick (or guy I guess) .. lol..

If 25 works well but you want to go lower ask you doctor to give you 20mg sildenafil tablets, its not generic Viagra, but its the same drug.  You can then try 20 mg and increase to 30 or 40 easily if you want

I never used Viagra. Didn't liked the pill at all.  Cialis is much better tolerated and the daily can be used for up to 36h. But if you have Erectile Dysfunction problems at such young age, you have to get a proper check up and diagnose.

Cialis is still much more expensive, although the price will be coming down on the generic.  Cialis also has side effects and for some they are the same as viagra, but they last longer.  It is a preference.

I would strongly recommend to anybody that suddenly finds the need for pill to get checked out and to start a cardio exercise program.  it can help immensely with blood flow ...

I agree with you on the cardio. But you mean Cialis daily? I am under the impression it's super well tolerated?

I have been taking the 5mg daily goal is for over a year and it works great. I feel like I'm in my 20's again as I can get an erection any time I want and I'm over 60.  My urologist prescribed it for me and I got it but it was really expensive and insurance won't pay anything on it, so my urologist ask me if I had any reservations about getting my goal is from Canada.  I now order and get a 90 day supply for half of the monthly cost in the good old US.

Sildenafil (generic reaction/viagra) in the US is now very inexpensive.  Check out goodrx.com.

cialis (tadalafil) now has multiple manufacturers in the US and just got very inexpensive.  If you want to get it in the US go to an independent pharmacy and talk to the owner.  You should be able to negotiate a 30 day supply of 5mg tablets for $40 or so ....
