Sildenafil was first released by Pfizer under the well-known brand name Viagra; the ‘blue pill’ that has become iconic in the treatment of impotence. Once the patent on Viagra expired in 2013, generic treatments could be produced by drug manufacturers at a significant discount.
Sildenafil 50mg tablets are the starting dose for patients who have not taken Sildenafil or other erectile dysfunction treatments before. Sildenafil 50mg is normally sufficient strength to treat most cases of ED however, as with all ED medicines, Sildenafil isn’t always successful the first time you take it; it can take a few attempts for your body to get used to the treatment. It is recommended to take Sildenafil at least eight times to allow it to build up a full effect before trying a different erectile dysfunction treatment.
Sildenafil 100mg tablets are the highest dose for patients who have tried Sildenafil or other erectile dysfunction treatments before, without achieving satisfactory results. If you have tried Sildenafil 50mg, increasing the strength to 100mg can improve symptoms where 50mg is ineffective.
Sildenafil 25mg tablets are the lowest strength of Sildenafil/generic Viagra available. Sildenafil 25mg tablets are normally used in patients who have experienced side effects from Sildenafil when taking the starting dose of 50mg tablets. Although they are the lowest strength treatment, Sildenafil 25mg tablets can still successfully treat ED in many patients. Sildenafil 25mg tablets should, for those for whom the 50mg strength is unsuitable, resolve the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. Even if the root ED cause is psychological, its effect can help to break the cycle of anxiety associated with being unable to achieve and maintain a satisfactory erection.
Why is Sildenafil cheaper than Viagra?
Sildenafil citrate is the name of the drug contained in the branded medicine Viagra. Now that the patent on Viagra has expired other companies may make ‘generic’ versions of the drug, however, they still must receive a product license from the MHRA ensuring their safety. Due to increased competition, ‘generic’ Sildenafil is available at a much lower price but still has the same effect and quality you would expect from a branded medication. Another generic ED treatment is now also available; Tadalafil 10mg & 20mg tablets are available as of November 2017 as a generic alternative ED treatment to the branded Cialis tablets.
When you buy viagra online, it’s important that you get your pills from a reputable online pharmacy. As Viagra is not sold over the counter in the UK, you will always need to undertake a short, free medical consultation.
Sildenafil tablets are even cheaper than the new over-the-counter ED treatment, Viagra Connect.

Pharmacist tip: Sildenafil should be taken 30 minutes to 1 hour before sexual intercourse. It lasts for 4 – 5 hours and you should try to avoid high-fat meals around the same time as it may reduce the effectiveness of Sildenafil.
