Cutting Viagra pills in half

I've been taking Viagra for about four years now and it works fine for me. I buy 100 mg. pills, then cut them in half with a pill cutter, and 50 mg. seems to be just the right dosage for me. I have noticed from time to time, however, that the potency is less on occasion; consequently, I don't get as good and as long an erection as I do other times. Could it be that the drug is loaded somewhat unevenly in some pills; therefore, I will get a "weak" half once in a while? Would I perhaps be better off buying the 50 mg. pills? I know that they are about the same price as the 100 mg. pills, so this would be much more expensive, but if it were more consistent, then it would be worth it to me. An alternative, I suppose, would be taking the entire 100 mg. pill and see how this worked.
Thanks.

Re: Cutting Viagra pills in half

My prescription for Levitra 10 mg gives the option of taking half of a pill. I have also taken whole pill but would consider cutting them in half if I got the 20 mg max dose version.

Levitra 10 mg is the equivalent of Viagra 50 mg. Give the 50 mg dose of Viagra a try. I realize the greater expense but maybe this could be the way to get the most consistent results. Viagra does offer the buy 3 get the 4th free.

Re: Cutting Viagra pills in half

I cut the 100mg Viagra in half.
Seems to be consistent and it is pharmacy issued. Not bought on-line.

Re: Cutting Viagra pills in half

Thank you for the replies. As an experiment, I took the whole 100 mg pill the other day and although my erection was incredibly hard and long (my wife loved it), I felt very flushed and my heart was racing quite a lot faster than with the smaller dosage. That part of the event was not too pleasant. Think I'll go back to the old method of using only half of the 100 mg pill. I get the Viagra at the pharmacy as well, not online. As others have said on this forum, it does help to take Viagra on an empty stomach. It could be that the few disappointments I've had with taking only half of 100 mg pills were due to my having eaten too recently or too much before ingesting the vitamin V.
FYI, on days that we decide to have sex, I usually take Viagra at about 4:30 PM, have sex at 5:30, have drinks, dinner, watch TV or read, then go to bed kind of early, like at about 9:45, and the Viagra is still potent enough for me to achieve another very effective erection. I know, that's not very spontaneous, but it's still a heck of a lot of fun! And my wife's not complaining.

I haven't experienced that pleasure yet but might have to give it a try!! I figured once & done!

Re: Cutting Viagra pills in half

Dave, I highly recommend this use of Viagra, that is, if you want a doubleheader so to speak. I have to say, though, that if you take the dosage at 4:30 or so, the latest it could be effective would be 10 or 10:30 that evening, not later. I've tried taking it earlier in the afternoon, like around 3 PM and although it worked fine at 4 or 5, when my wife and I went to bed at 10 or so that night, things weren't really looking up for me if you know what I mean. I had read earlier that the most you could expect the potency to last is 4 to 6 hours, and I guess that's about right from my own experience.
Good luck.
