What is sildenafil citrate?

Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra and it is therefore often referred to as generic Viagra. It works in the same way as Viagra and it can cause the same side effects. It first became available in 2013, after the Viagra manufacturer Pfizer’s patent for the drug expired, allowing other pharmaceutical companies to produce their own versions of the medication. It is also known as sildenafil citrate.

How are sildenafil tablets taken?

Take the sildenafil tablet with a drink of water. You need to take it at least 30 minutes to 1 hour before sex to allow time for the medication to take effect. Having food or a fatty meal with your tablet may slow down the absorption, which means that it may take longer for the drug to work.

You mustn’t take sildenafil more than once a day and it is important that you follow your doctor’s instructions carefully. Do not take more sildenafil than you have been prescribed.
