Question Ways to take Viagra

I'm new here, found this forum with a search engine, but it brought me to the old site. Had heard you could cut the pills. Was researching why Viagra had the enteric coating to begin with (which gets the pill past the stomach into the small intestine to disolve) Wasn't sure if it was to protect the stomach from the drug or the drug from the stomach acids. Anyway, there was a lot of discussion in the older version of this site from guys cutting the pills down to smaller doses with no problem, and even crushing it then putting it under their tongues or mixing it with juice for faster response. All these discussions were two years old. Was wondering if anyone was still taking it that way with good results since there wasn't recent discussion about it here now. Just trying to make sure some unforseen problem didn't come up with using it that way that I should know about.

According to the website, they do not recommend that you split the pills. They must want to keep the coating intact while in the stomach.

However, I split a pill and did not notice any difference in effectiveness.

Thanks for the response. Guess I should have made the subject line different, only getting a small number of viewers. I got an email response back from an "Ask the Pharmasist" type site, he said he'd followed Viagra since it came out 5 years ago. He said it originally didn't have the coating, but due to complaints of headache and indigestion on 50mg and larger doses, the coating was added, and the 25mg was still available in film caoted form. So he confirmed cutting them didn't effect the action of the drug. On the old board, some guys going by Bob, Genie, and Ray talked alot about crushing portions of the tablets and letting it disolve under the tongue, were leaning towards smaller doses getting satisfactory short term results. Was hoping some of them would still be out here, would like to know now, two years later if they're still doing it that way, or if they experienced any problems over time. I tried it that way once, didn't get much of a response, just ended up with a nasty drug taste in my mouth.
