Treating erectile dysfunction with sildenafil
Stronger, longer-lasting erections
Sildenafil blocks an enzyme called PDE5, which makes it easier for blood to flow to the penis for a harder erection.
Take before sex
Sildenafil is an ED medication that’s taken orally as needed. When used as directed it works within 30-60 minutes.
Lasts 4-6 hours
Sildenafil stays in the body for 4-6 hours, during which time a person has an easier time getting and maintaining an erection. But don’t worry, it doesn’t cause arousal, so you’ll only get erect when you’re in the mood. That means when the time is right, turn up the romance (and foreplay!).

Using sildenafil for erectile dysfunction
How to use sildenafil
Take an hour before sex
For best results, take sildenafil (Generic Viagra) 30-60 minutes before sex because your body needs a little bit of time to absorb the medication.
Take on an empty stomach
If you eat a high-fat meal right before, it can take away from sildenafil's effectiveness. Taking sildenafil on an empty stomach can maximize its effects.
Skip the alcohol for best results
To get the best results, only drink alcohol moderately when you're about to take sildenafil. That means fewer than two drinks per day (one drink is equivalent to a 5oz glass of wine, a 12oz glass of beer or a 1.4 oz shot).

What is generic Viagra?
Generic Viagra® is also known as sildenafil, and it is the non branded version of the drug. It is cheaper than branded Viagra, but no less effective for helping to treat erectile dysfunction. Sildenafil citrate is the active ingredient in both Viagra® and generic Viagra®.
Sildenafil citrate is a type of medication known as a PDE-5 inhibitor. Viagra® and generic Viagra® are available in 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg tablets. While the manufacturer of the medication and the appearance of the pills may differ, the active ingredient works the same way in your body.
What is sildenafil?
Sildenafil citrate is the chemical name of the active ingredient in Viagra®. When sildenafil is sold in 25, 50, or 100 mg dosages, it’s either brand name Viagra® or the generic version. Ro offers both generic and branded sildenafil, and if prescribed, you can get sildenafil online through Ro.
Who is sildenafil for?
Sildenafil is approved to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) in men age 18 years and older. Some men with pre-existing health conditions or men who take certain medications can’t take sildenafil. Your Ro-affiliated healthcare provider will decide if sildenafil is right for you after you submit a free online evaluation.
Are there benefits to using sildenafil over Viagra?
Choosing between sildenafil and Viagra® largely comes down to cost. Generic Viagra®, which is available up to 90% cheaper than branded Viagra®, acts the same way in your body and produces the same results as the branded version.
