Sildenafil (Viagra) works by inhibiting the chemical reaction that causes blood to flow out of an erect penis that returning it to its flaccid, normal size and state. 

Keeping this little detail in mind is the key to unlocking the best out of sildenafil.

Sildenafil blocks an enzyme known as PDE5 – which causes blood to flow out of the penis. When this enzyme is blocked, it prevents this outflow of blood from the penis, allowing blood to flow freely into the penis to produce and keep an erection.

Nevertheless, PDE5 inhibitor drugs like sildenafil don’t work as soon as you take them. You need to be in a state of sexual arousal to be able to achieve an erection. Therefore, the first step to enhancing your sildenafil experience is to make sure you’re in the mood to “get it on.”

The success and effectiveness of sildenafil and how fast it works all boil down to several factors. We’ve listed four tips to help sildenafil do its magic.

 

1) Refrain from taking sildenafil after a heavy meal.

 

Sildenafil may take longer to work if you take it after consuming a heavy, fat-and-carb-heavy meal.

That means it might take longer for your body to absorb sildenafil up to an hour, meaning its effects may come on later than the usual 30 minutes to one hour. It may also mean that your erection may be less firm or less longer-lasting than you expected. The solution? Be mindful of when you take your sildenafil to get the most out of it.

 

2) Avoid alcohol or recreational drug consumption.

 

Yes, you might not feel any tangible difference in effects when having a drink or two with sildenafil. But the more you drink, the harder it will be for you to produce a consistently strong erection. You’ve probably heard of “whiskey dick” – and nothing can kill your erection faster than too many drinks hanging on the end of it. Alcohol is ultimately a depressant that interferes with many of your body’s systems, including the ones that are all-important for you to achieve an erection.

Alcohol and recreational drugs like cannabis may exacerbate erectile dysfunction. Chronic, long-term drinking also causes long-lasting damage to your heart, liver, and nerves, apart from lowering your testosterone – which may cause ED and interfere with sildenafil’s effect.

 

3) Get the timing down pat and only take sildenafil as recommended.

 

Sildenafil is ideally taken around 30 to 60 minutes before engaging in sexual activity to experience the best results. Taking it too close before you have sex may take it longer or make it a bit harder to get a full-strength erection.

On the other hand, taking it too soon – like taking it in the morning but plan to have sex in the evening – may also diminish sildenafil’s effects. Sildenafil’s window of effectiveness ranges from four to six hours after taking it, so taking it too soon may leave you disappointed. You may want to try sildenafil alone for the first couple of times and do some solo play to experience its effects. Doing so will also help you get your timing down right. This will ease any nerves when you play with your partner.

If you’ve tried sildenafil and have had disappointing results, consult your doctor about trying a higher dose or switching to another PDE5 inhibitor drug like tadalafil (Cialis). They will help you make the right adjustments as regards the dose or type of ED drug you take.

4) Get healthy.

 

Erectile dysfunction is often a cardiovascular issue. After all, optimal blood flow is a key component of erections. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that sildenafil works best when your body is firing on all cylinders. Anything that diminishes blood flow makes it harder for your body to produce an erection – even when you’re taking sildenafil. 

The best way to overcome ED is to get enough cardiovascular exercise, maintain a healthy weight, avoid or quitting smoking and recreational drug use, refrain from alcohol consumption, and avoid medicines that may cause or worsen ED (consult your doctor if you’re taking depressants or other medicines before going on an ED medication).

That said, there’s no better way to get fuller, firmer, and longer-lasting erections than by enhancing blood flow, reducing blood pressure, and keeping your testosterone levels in order.

Ultimately, sildenafil works at its best when your body is at its best. A healthy heart is your best chance to prevent and overcome the symptoms of erectile dysfunction that stop you from achieving the sex life and satisfaction you crave.
