Sildenafil 100mg and Viagra 100mg contain the maximum dose of sildenafil citrate for ED. Whilst you may think that the strongest Viagra pill is a good starting point to get your erections back on track, this isn’t the case.
The maximum dose of Viagra is not prescribed to first timers. The decision to increase the dose of sildenafil citrate to 100mg is usually suggested by the prescriber. But only after the smaller dose of 50mg has been trialled by the patient and found to be lacking.
If you think you need a strong Viagra dose, because the lower dose hasn’t worked how you were expecting, then you should consult your prescriber.
Is Viagra 100mg more effective?
In fixed dose studies the 100mg dosage of Sildenafil was found to improve erections for 82% of patients . This is slightly higher than the 50mg dosage (74%) and the 25mg dosage (62%).
Although the 100mg tablet is more potent and the most likely to be effective in giving erectile firmness, because there’s more of the active ingredient in it, with sildenafil 100mg side effects can be more likely. And the risk of these is higher for some men than others, depending on their tolerance of the drug.
So if a man who doesn’t need to take a dose as high as 100mg, decides to ‘go nuclear’ and takes 100mg, the increased side effect risk could detract from the overall effectiveness rate. (If you get cumbersome side effects on a drug, then you could say it’s less effective for you overall.)
A man who only needs to take 50mg will keep their side effect risk low by taking the 50mg (thus enjoying a more effective use of the drug).
If you aren’t happy with your erections when taking the 50mg dosage, speak to your prescriber.
Is 20mg Cialis equal to 100mg Viagra?
They’re the two most well known ED drugs, so it’s common for men to compare Cialis and Viagra when trying to decide what will work best for them. The strongest dose of Cialis is 20mg while the strongest Viagra pill is 100mg. Cialis contains the active ingredient, tadalafil whereas Viagra contains sildenafil citrate. Both drugs are from the PDE5 inhibitors category of medications and work in the same way.
Cialis is also generally well tolerated and has good outcomes rates for patients.
If your erections do not improve after you have tried Viagra, your prescriber may recommend an alternative oral ED treatment, such as Cialis.
Can I take Viagra daily?
Viagra should only be taken when you’re planning to have sex within the next hour. Only one Viagra pill should be taken in a 24 hour period.
If you’re looking for an ED pill that will cover you every day, for example if you want to have sex on a more spontaneous basis, then Cialis Daily may be a better option for you. The Cialis Daily pill allows those who take it to obtain a strong erection at any point within the 24 hours of taking it. As with all ED pills, sexual stimulation is still required for an erection to form.
