Liberize is a drug for erectile dysfunction (ED) that increases blood flow to your penis. This makes it easier to get and keep an erection. Liberize is a cheaper alternative to Viagra Connect that works in almost the same way.
So if you have ED, Liberize can help you get back in control of your sex life. And unlike Viagra, you don't even need a prescription for it.
How does Liberize work?
The active ingredient in Liberize is sildenafil. Sildenafil is a type of drug called a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor (PDE5 inhibitor), so it works by blocking the PDE5 enzyme. This helps the blood vessels in your penis widen, letting the blood flow faster and easier. This helps you get an erection more easily and maintain one for longer.
For Liberize to work properly, you’ll need to be aroused. It increases blood flow to the penis, but it can’t make it happen spontaneously. So take Liberize about an hour before sex and don’t forget foreplay.
What doses of Liberize are there?
Liberize comes in 50mg pills. You should usually take one pill per sex ‘session’, for a maximum of one 50mg pill a day. If you feel this dose isn’t working for you, talk to your clinician. There might be other options that suit you better. There are also pills with the same active ingredient, in higher or lower doses.
How to take Liberize
Make sure you follow your clinician’s instructions on taking Liberize.
Swallow Liberize whole without crushing or chewing the tablet.
Drink some water with the tablet.
Try not to take Liberize around the time of a heavy meal. Eating too much at the same time can slow the absorption of the drug.
Liberize can be taken up to four hours before sex. It usually takes 30 minutes to an hour to start working.
How long does it take Liberize to work?
Liberize usually takes around 30-60 minutes to kick in. For some people, Liberize starts working even quicker. The effects can last for even longer though, so up to 4 hours after you first take it, you can still be ready for sex. That means there’s some space for spontaneity.
What should I do if I make a mistake when taking Liberize?
If you take too much Liberize, talk to your clinician. For any worrying symptoms, get medical attention now. What if Liberize doesn’t work the first time? Don’t panic. You can always try again tomorrow. Sometimes it takes a few times before the medication starts working for you. If you’ve tried a few times and it’s still not doing much, go back to your clinician.
Don’t drink grapefruit juice while taking Liberize. It raises the levels of sildenafil in your blood, which can increase the chance of side effects. Grapefruit juice may also slow the absorption of Liberize, so its effects take longer to show. You should also try not to drink too much alcohol while taking Liberize. Alcohol can make it harder to get an erection, so it might affect the medicine.
