Viagra - I seem to need a larger dose

Greetings

Does anyone find that they need a lot more Viagra than what most people seem to need? I find that i usually have to take 100 MGs to get it to work.
Usually I put the full 100 under my tongue but sometimes I put 50 MG under my tongue and then swallow 100. I know it is a lot but just doing 50 MG does not seem to be enough. I have tried takinbg just 50 MG under my tongue and it usually does not cause a good enough effect.

Just want to make sure I am not missing something. Any suggesstions?

Thanks.....Rob

Re: Viagra - I seem to need a larger dose

It sounds like you are taking a lot. I take 50 mg. and get very good results. You don't say how you are taking it. I have found that it works best on an empty stomach. It you are taking it after you eat, especially fat, that may be the reason you have to take such a large dose to get it to work. There must be some reason why the pill comes in the largest dose at 100 mg. Anything above that may not be safe. Good luck.

Re: Viagra - I seem to need a larger dose

I was given a script for 50mg. My doctor told me to start taking just a half of tablet to start to see if it was enough. It was great and I have not had to increase the dosage. I place it under my tongue and have to wait about 30-45 minutes for it to kick in. This is the biggest drawback. Sex should be spontaneous and not scheduled. It also slows my climax time down to the point that my wife gets tired and sore.

Re: Viagra - I seem to need a larger dose

I have found that my 50 mg. dose begins to kick in in about 10 minutes. I, too, have found that sometimes it delays my orgasm. It just seems to take longer some times and then at other times it is like it used to be without Viagra. I think it depends on how aroused I am. With Viagra you can be very hard and not be very aroused which of course delays ejaculation.

Re: Viagra - I seem to need a larger dose

RBT;

Have you had your male/female hormones tested? You may have low testosterone & high estergen E2. That will kill the sex drive & erections.

If that is the problem your doc may try hCG or a testosterone gel.

Good luck

Re: Viagra - I seem to need a larger dose

Rob,

I find I need the full 100 mg. for much of an effect. My doctor did the "Wink-Wink, break them into quarters to save money."
Yeah right, I thing more apporpriate is a good way to glue two TOGETHER.

I must say, it DOES make the bathroom a nice shade of bright blue-white for awhile!

Onwards and upwards: Cialis next!

Re: Viagra - I seem to need a larger dose

Rob and others - Tell me about placing a Viagra under your tounge rather than swallowing it. Does that make its response faster? Does it provide a bitter taste or do you not taste it? Does this technique lessen the problem of taking a Viagra on a full stomach?

It takes me 60-90 minutes after swallowing a 50mg pill to have an effect. Usually it works well but not always - last Sunday night a 50mg left me only half-way up and with a mild upset stomach . I'd like a way to speed things up. Sometimes i take a 50mg plus another half to give me a 75mg kick. Doesn't speed things up but raises the odds of success.

Re: Viagra - I seem to need a larger dose

I also seem to need a larger dose of Viagra. I have combined Cialis and Viagra and have tried two 100mg tabs of Viagra, however, my vision became blurry and a headache also. (I didn't tell my Dr. about this as rumor has it that this can be a dangerous thing to do.) Erection is achieved, but isn't lasting. I have tried rings and other devices to maintain erection with moderate result, but leaving them on for an extended period of time has caused brusing and discoloration that has lasted for days. Am also seeking advice of others experience and what may have worked for them. For what it is worth, there isn't anything wrong with my sex drive, merely a performance factor.

Was the blurry vision temporary and is your vision completly back to normal now?
