The active ingredient in Sildenafil ratiopharm (sildenafil citrate) increases blood flow to the penis. It allows for a firmer, longer-lasting erection when you're sexually aroused.
Sildenafil does not address the underlying physical cause of your erectile dysfunction, nor does it increase your sexual desire.
Sildenafil ratiopharm treats erectile dysfunction in about two-thirds of cases. If you have eaten a large meal or drunk more than 1-2 units of alcohol, the effect of Sildenafil ratiopharm may be reduced.
It is believed that sildenafil works in two-thirds of men. However, there is a chance that it may not work the first time. We therefore recommend trying this erectile dysfunction medication up to 8 times before deciding whether it works for you or not.
Sildenafil ratiopharm 100mg / 50mg/ 25mg can be taken once a day, but you should never take more than one sildenafil tablet in a 24-hour period.
The standard recommended dose of Sildenafil ratiopharm for erectile dysfunction is 50 mg, but your doctor may prescribe between 25 mg and 100 mg.
It is recommended to take Sildenafil ratiopharm only once a day. You should not take one pill every time you plan to have intercourse more than once a day.
And if you take a pill and it doesn't work - don't double the dose. For some men, the desired effect is only achieved after a few doses.
If you take a higher dose than recommended by your doctor, you are at risk of developing serious side effects.
Because Sildenafil ratiopharm can also affect other parts of the body, such as the heart and lungs, it is important that you follow the dose and your doctor's instructions. And if the dose prescribed for you doesn't work for you, the doctor can adjust the dose to find an effective dose.
Take Sildenafil ratiopharm on an empty stomach.
Sildenafil ratiopharm can be taken with or without food. However, it works better and faster when taken on an empty stomach.
However, if you do eat something beforehand, avoid taking the drug with a high-fat meal, as this can affect the absorption of the active ingredient - and thus the speed at which it works.

There are several factors that can trigger erectile dysfunction. Often there are several factors that occur together. These can be psychological factors such as stress or physical factors such as circulatory disorders.
Sildenafil ratiopharm contains the same active ingredient as Viagra (sildenafil citrate) and is a cheaper reliable option in the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
Sildenafil ratiopharm helps you keep an erection long enough to have successful and satisfying sexual intercourse. So, it can help you keep your erection longer. We recommend that those suffering from erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation take this tablet before trying an anti-premature ejaculation drug (e.g. Priligy) as it may also improve ejaculation control. But these tablets should not be used to treat premature ejaculation unless you also have erectile dysfunction.
Sildenafil ratiopharm is a generic of Viagra used to treat erectile dysfunction and heart conditions such as pulmonary arterial hypertension.
Viagra is so popular that its name has become synonymous with the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men. However, this is only a trade name for the drug called sildenafil.
Pfizer patented Viagra before it was approved for the market. Since it was launched in 1998, it has been a smash hit. The patent expired in 2013 and several generic drugs appeared on the market.
ratiopharm GmbH (part of the Teva Pharmaceuticals group) has since been producing a generic version of sildenafil that competes with Viagra.
So is there a difference between Sildenafil ratiopharm and Viagra? There is no real difference between Viagra and Sildenafil ratiopharm. Remember that the name of the drug sold as Viagra is sildenafil. The difference in names is really just for marketing reasons. The main active ingredient is the same.
Sildenafil ratiopharm is a generic version of Viagra that is distributed and branded by another company. This means that it tends to be sold at much lower prices since it doesn't require marketing dollars to sell it.
There are also some medical reasons for differentiating between Sildenafil ratiopharm and Viagra.
Sildenafil ratiopharm is approved for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).
Viagra is currently only approved for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. It is not prescribed to treat other conditions such as PAH . The sildenafil-containing commercial preparation Revatio from Pfizer is used for this purpose.
Sildenafil ratiopharm tablets are not blue and diamond-shaped like Viagra, but white to off-white, oblong, with a bar. Sildenafil ratiopharm 100mg and 50mg has a score line on one side and can therefore be divided into equal doses. This provides opportunities for easy and convenient dose adjustment. Viagra film-coated tablets have no score line and can therefore not be divided.
In the composition of Sildenafil ratiopharm, unlike Viagra, there is no lactose. It is therefore very suitable for patients with lactose intolerance.
You can buy Sildenafil ratiopharm in 4 strengths. These are 25 mg, 50 mg, 75 mg and 100 mg. The patient thus has several dosing options for erectile dysfunction. However, recently only 25 mg, 50 mg and 100 mg are available in pharmacies. Viagra offers only 3 dosages – 25 mg, 50 mg and 100 mg.
Do you want to buy Sildenafil ratiopharm online or Viagra? Both medications are available in pharmacies on presentation of a prescription.
Sildenafil ratiopharm works in the same way as Viagra. When the dosage is the same, both drugs are equally effective.
Yes. Each tablet has a score line that allows it to be divided into equal doses. Sildenafil ratiopharm 50 mg film-coated tablets can also be divided.
Some men find psychological counseling when their erectile dysfunction has psychological causes.
If Sildenafil ratiopharm 100mg/ 50 mg/ 25 mg does not work for you, contact your doctor to discuss your treatment options. You can view all erectile dysfunction medications here.
I`ve had erection problems for about 3 years. I`ve tried a few things, but I`m not impressed with the results. The last option that the doctor recommended to me is Sildenafil ratiopharm 50mg. Frankly, I was skeptical and stopped hoping that a medicine containing sildenafil would help me. Quite unexpectedly I found that I can have fun with sex again. So far no side effects. Viagra caused me severe flatulence, no talk of having fun in bed with such a side effect.
