There is a rumor that Viagra will be off patent in December, 2011. We shall see. Men in their 20s are taking Viagra, FYI. Pfizer Pharmaceuticals hit the ball out of the park.

But I digress. The usual dose is 100 mgs, some men do well with 50 mgs. Viagra is to be taken on an empty stomach which means one hour before or 2 hours after eating or drinking. It usually remains in your system for six hours. Some men do not experience side effects with the newer erectile dysfunction medications. Some men don’t experience side effects with Viagra, Cialis, or Levitra.

Caution: do not take Viagra if your doctor has prescribed Nitroglycerin for your heart.
