The dose of Viagra should be gauged by a healthcare provider, and we cannot stress this enough. Self-administration is highly unadvisable, or you are asking for trouble. However, for general educational purposes we’ve prepped a hands-on guide on how to know you made-to-measure Viagra dose. So here’s the drill.

Generic Viagra 25 mg

Who is it for: Generic Viagra 25 mg is the minimal dose of sildenafil citrate, and as such it is the very first step you take in your therapy. Whether or not this will be escalated as you hitch closer to your tailored posology scheme is a question of many factors and combinations thereof. The important adage is that you start off by taking those baby steps and see what your body thinks of the new drug.

The trick: What you should know about the minimal dose is that you are not likely to really feel the efficacy of the drug at its fullest with the first few pills; not because the dose is ineffective, but rather because of sildenafil nature. You might say that sildenafil is the opposite of addictive – it builds up and improves responsiveness of your body over time, so that diminishing dose is not such a rare scene in many patients. Make sure you give it some time before you discard generic Viagra 25 mg as inefficient and move on to the medium dose. You might want to stay on this dose in case your case of ED is mild.

The caveat: In order to save yourself from a pitfall, do not increase your dose of Viagra without your practitioner’s approval. A reasonable prescriber will move on to the next dose, which is sildenafil 50 mg, so as not to provoke severe adverse events.

Generic Viagra 50 mg

Who is it for: Generic Viagra 50 mg is considered to be the medium dose which is repeatedly reported to be effective in 81% of patients aged between 42 and 56, according to Massachusetts Institute data. It is also the next step from the minimal dose should 25 mg fails to provide the desired effect.

The trick: Viagra 50 mg is a universally effective pill and a legitimate bestseller. It is used in men with partial inability to achieve and maintain erection. As has been alluded to above, over time your body will build up increased responsiveness towards the effects of sildenafil, which may translate into the absence of necessity to take stronger doses of the drug. Many patients find it practical (and easier on their liver) to break Viagra 50 mg tablet in two and have each half on a separate occasion. The effects will still last for around 4 hours, but this is a way to make Viagra less taxing on both your body and your budget.

The caveat: Although considered a medium sildenafil dose, generic Viagra 25 mg is on the higher side, dose-wise, and therefore should not be treated lightly when it comes to double-dosing. Take it as an adamant rule: no matter how low your maximal recommended dose is, don’t ever go overboard.

Generic Viagra 100 mg

Who is it for: Generic Viagra 100 mg is a high-end pill that is used in men with full impotence, in whom ability to achieve erection in a non-medicated state fails in 80% of cases and above. Viagra 100 mg should not be used in senior citizens or patients with increased sensitivity towards the drug and its ingredients.

The trick: The dose of generic Viagra containing sildenafil 100 mg is what most specialist see as maximally allowed concentration of the drug in plasma established for 24 hours’ period. The drug’s effectiveness is increased proportionally to the dose augmentation, which makes pills containing sildenafil 100 mg successful in producing optimal results even in men with complete ED.

The caveatSildenafil 100 mg is a rather heavy-duty dose. Please make sure that you have no health condition that would backfire when you load with this much of Viagra. Caution should be exercised in patients of older age, as well as those suffering from unstable blood pressure.

Those were the classical types of Viagra available as both brand and generic editions. If you don’t feel like following a traditional protocol, you have the types of generic Viagra alluded to earlier in this instalment, and those have an elevated content of sildenafil, as a rule. Read more about them below.

Generic Viagra 150 mg

Who is it for: The empowered formula of generic Viagra 150 mg can be used in men with severely affected erectile function, who experience complete inability to achieve erection in the first place. In such patients, generic Viagra 150 mg restores the ability to respond with hard and controllable erection to sexual stimulation and achieve several erections with minimal refractory time.

The trick: The dose of sildenafil 150 mg is only available in generic Viagra types. The specific trait of the drug is its excellent performance no matter how badly the erectile function is affected. Sildenafil 150 mg is also reported to be longer-acting and having a positive impact on endurance as a bonus effect.

The caveat: Viagra 150 mg should be used in caution, since the content of sildenafil in it surpasses what most specialists see as maximally allowed. Always start off by minimal dose and increase it by one step under your prescriber’s supervision.

Generic Viagra 200 mg

Who is it for: Generic Viagra 200 mg is intended for the use in men with full ED or those in whom lesser doses of sildenafil were proved to be ineffective, or else the effects were unsatisfactory after several consecutive doses. This dose of Viagra should not be applied in older citizens.

The trick: Viagra 200 mg promotes increased sensitivity to sexual stimuli, restores erectile ability and breaks down the time lag required for sexual recharge between erections. More controllable and harder erections are available with Viagra 200 mg. This dose of sildenafil is only available in generic Viagra types.

The caveat: This is the absolutely maximal dose of sildenafil recommended for a single use. Do not take the drug unless you have been gradually stepping up your Viagra therapy with smaller doses having proven safe in your individual case.
