Should I Take Sildenafil Tablets with Food?

What many people don’t know is that the active ingredient in Viagra is a generic chemical called Sildenafil; Viagra is just the brand name. Sildenafil tablets are marketed as a separate product to Viagra but they work in exactly the same way.

Erectile dysfunction medicines can vary and different treatments often have to be taken in different ways including whether or not you can take them with food or alcohol and how soon before any sexual activity they should be administered.

Sildenafil tablets can be taken with or without food but you may find that a heavy meal delays the effect of the drug so it starts working more slowly – usually, a light meal is better.

How does Sildenafil work?
Sildenafil belongs to a class of drugs called Phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. It works by relaxing the blood vessels in the penis and thereby increasing the blood flow. Sildenafil tablets do require a level of sexual stimulus and excitement, they cannot work completely on their own. You might not think food or alcohol would affect the outcome with medicine or not but alcohol can certainly affect libido and excessively rich, heavy or fatty meals will interfere with the effectiveness of Sildenafil tablets.

Sildenafil tablets will work more quickly on an empty stomach although they can be taken with food but this will interfere with the response time quoted by the manufacturer. Swallow the tablet down with just water around one hour before you plan any sexual activity, avoid grapefruit juice and also alcohol.
