Direct Preventive Care

Slidenafil Rx

Manage erectile dysfunction with generic Viagra, which is up to 95% less expensive than the branded version.

Sildenafil, known as generic Viagra, is the non-branded version of the drug. It is more cost-effective than branded Viagra yet equally effective at treating erectile dysfunction. The active ingredient in both Viagra and its generic counterpart is sildenafil citrate. 

Sildenafil is taken as needed to prepare for sexual activity. Here are some tips for use: 

  • Test it solo first: Experience how it affects your body by trying it without a partner. 
  • Take at least 60 minutes before sex: It remains active in your body for about 4-6 hours. 
  • Best on an empty stomach: For optimal results, avoid fatty foods and alcohol before taking it. 
  • Arousal is necessary: Sildenafil does not cause an erection without sexual arousal, so begin with foreplay for the best results. 

Common side effects reported include stuffy or runny nose, flushing, headaches, heartburn, dizziness, muscle aches, and nausea. 

Do not take sildenafil if you are using any nitrates for chest pain or guanylate cyclase stimulators like Adempas (riociguat), as this combination can cause a dangerous drop in blood pressure. 

Why sildenafil?

Stronger, longer-lasting erections

Sildenafil inhibits an enzyme known as PDE5. This action helps increase blood flow to the penis, facilitating a harder erection when sexually aroused. 

Taken before sex

This oral ED medication should be taken when you anticipate sexual activity. It generally begins to work within 30-60 minutes of ingestion. 

Lasts 4-6 hours

Sildenafil remains effective in the body for about 4-6 hours, aiding in both achieving and maintaining an erection during this period. Importantly, it does not trigger arousal on its own; you will only experience an erection when you are sexually stimulated. So, when you're ready, enhance the mood with some romance and foreplay.
