Updated Jun,2020

Your doctor decides what treatment is best for you. Different dosages all work the same way and last about 4-6 hours. Sildenafil (Viagra) prescriptions are available in increments from 20 to 200mg doses, with the most commonly prescribed dosage being 50mg.

What's the correct dosage of Sildenafil (Viagra)?

The dosage prescribed for you is based on your personal medical history and needs. Your doctor takes your specific needs into account and guides you on how and when to take your prescribed dosage. The amount of a dosage varies based on the strength of your dose, how much you may take in a day, and how often you may take it.

Sildenafil (Viagra) comes in tablets and prescriptions are available in increments from 20 to 200mg doses.

Below is a common prescription for an adult younger than 65:

  • Take 60mg no more than once a day. Take your dose 30 minutes to 4 hours before sexual intercourse.

What is the difference between dosages?

Whether you're prescribed the lowest dosage or the highest dosage of Sildenafil (Viagra), there's not much of a difference as they're all designed to work the same way for the same amount of time.

However there are key benefits to taking certain dosage amounts.

In clinical studies, 82% of men taking 100mg of Sildenafil (Viagra) were able to achieve and maintain an erection as opposed to 74% taking 50mg.

And those taking the lowest dosage of 20mg, experienced the least amount of side effects, such as:

  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Flushing
  • Nausea

Regardless of your prescribed dosage, it's imperative you follow the usage directions exactly as stated on the label.

  • Take the tablet one hour before you plan to have sex (for best results)
  • Take it on an empty stomach
  • Do not take more than one tablet in 24 hours
