Viagra Dosage at Maximum: 150mg and 200mg Pills Are Explained

How to use Viagra

How to use Viagra? It is a quite common question because there are brand and generic versions sold under this title or its varieties. However, all these pills despite the different contents share the same active component – Sildenafil. That is why the dosage is pretty much the same for each pill.

If the deal is about brand Viagra, the maximum strength available for a legal prescription is 100 mg. That is also the maximum daily dose for 1 person, that can be taken once per 24 hrs. Viagra is a relatively safe medication but it is not a candy after all, so it is much safer to use it according to the healthcare recommendations.

Common administration rules for the users of Viagra pills

No matter what dosage of Viagra you are taking, it is desirable to follow a few instructions: 

  1. It is recommended to take Viagra pill at least 2 hrs after a meal. But drinking a pill on an empty stomach is also undesirable. The best foods to eat before using Viagra pills are healthy snacks like fruits or veggies. The percentage of fat in meals should be no more than 30%, otherwise, Viagra may provide no effect;
  2. When choosing the time of administration, keep in mind that sexual intercourse is expected at least 60 min after the use. During this period, the drug will have time to act;
  3. The pill (or its part – depending on the dosage) must be taken with a warm soft drink – like gas-free mineral water;
  4. The pills in a blister should be stored in a dry place, according to the instructions;

Average doses of Viagra

A doctor may prescribe to take Viagra in such strengths – 25mg, 50mg or 100mg. The average dose for the first intake of Viagra is 50 mg. The results of clinical trials have shown that this amount of the drug is enough for triggering a normal erection for most men.  There is one more recommended approach to the calculation of the individual dose: start with a minimum of 25 mg and then increase until the desired effect happens.

During one day you can take no more than Viagra 100mg. Another limitation concerns the number of doses – you can’t take this dose more than once per 24 hrs.

Who can take the maximum dose of Viagra – 150mg and 200mg pills?

However, some people can increase the maximum recommended daily dose of 100 mg Sildenafil. That is why some generic versions of Viagra are accessible for sale in higher strengths per 1 pill – 150mg and 200mg. Surely, only a licensed doctor can approve the single intake of such doses for an adult man. Just like with any other dosage, you ought to be careful and cautious.

Keep in mind that a 200mg dose of Viagra will work only for a young or middle-aged person without any serious health problems, except ED. If you consider taking more than one 200mg pill per 24 hours, there definitely will be negative consequences.

By the way, did you know that it is also important the time of the day or night when you are taking ED pills like Viagra? Yes, some men react to the intake only in the morning hours. It may seem inconvenient because most intimate dates happen at night, but their bodies have different clocks for erection. Bear this in mind and consider taking different allowed doses of Viagra at different daytime or nighttime hours.

Elderly people and sick men with a history of heart attacks can’t use high doses of Viagra (150mg and 200mg) under any circumstances.

Positive effects from high Viagra doses: 150mg and 200mg

When properly taken, Viagra in strengths of 150mg and 200mg provides a safe and positive effect in males:

  • relaxes the muscle tissue of a male penis;
  • strengthens blood microcirculation within a body;
  • leads to steady and long-lasting erections;
  • inhibits the action of PDE-5 enzymes responsible for the process of ejaculation, prolonging sexual contact up to several times;

With the regular use, Viagra helps to increase testosterone levels, normalize hormonal levels, enhance semen production, reduce the risk of prostate problems and other difficult illnesses.

High doses of Viagra pills: precautions

Also, it is worth remembering what clinical tests proved – an increased single dose of Sildenafil to 200mg or 400mg per day does not enhance the effect of Viagra but causes prolonged side effects. In this case, it’s possible serious poisoning and intoxication of a body. Viagra 100 mg pills are not compatible with ethanol.

When used along with alcoholic beverages, the effectiveness of Sildenafil is significantly reduced. For example, ethanol slows down the absorption of substances and disrupts a person’s liver actively involved in the processing of medicinal components. In addition, alcohol may increase the concentration of Sildenafil in plasma – it can be dangerous due to the complication of chronic liver pathologies.

How to diagnose overdose caused by taking too many Viagra pills?

  • dizziness;
  • redness of the face and neck;
  • blurred vision;

  • increased photosensitivity;
  • nausea;
  • nasal congestion;
