Can I Take Viagra Every Day?

Large blue pill.

Viagra, Pfizer’s iconic little blue pill, is a medication that should be taken only as needed.

Pfizer, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, designed Viagra as an on-demand erectile dysfunction medication to be taken 30 to 60 minutes before the anticipated start of sexual activity. The drug’s label warns that Viagra should not be taken more than once in a 24-hour period.

Viagra, along with Levitra, Staxyn, and Stendra, are all on-demand ED drugs, meaning that they should be taken only when sexual activity is expected to begin within a short period after the drug is taken. The effects of these drugs usually wear off within four to six hours. The original formulation of Cialis, introduced in 2003, is also an on-demand drug, although it differs from the others in its extraordinarily long duration of effect — up to 36 hours. It is perhaps the best choice for a man who’s planning a romantic weekend.

There’s a Better Drug for Daily Use 

Men who suffer from the symptoms of ED but want to be able to achieve and maintain an erection whenever it’s needed are probably best advised to take Cialis for daily use. Tadalafil, the active ingredient in both formulations of Cialis, has the longest half life of any of the active ingredients in ED drugs. If it is taken daily for a period of a few consecutive days and then continued on a daily basis, you should be able  to get an erection suitable for intercourse whenever it might be appropriate, according to Cialis.

It’s worth noting that Viagra’s duration of effect — also known as its active half life — extends for roughly six hours in most users. So taking the drug every day still wouldn’t guarantee that you could get an erection whenever you wanted to.

Taking Drug Daily Could Be Costly

Technically, you could take Viagra once every 24 hours, but the cost to do so would be prohibitive. Also, unless you’re a newlywed or otherwise very active sexually, daily Viagra would probably provide you with more erectile function than you’re likely to need.

Although the side effects of Viagra are generally mild, they can be a bit bothersome and not something you’d want to expose yourself to unnecessarily. The most common side effects of the little blue pill — and its generic equivalents — include abnormal vision, back pain, dizziness, facial flushing, headache, muscle pain, nausea, rash, runny or stuffy nose, and upset stomach.

Some Side Effects Are More Serious

The drug also has some more serious side effects, and it’s conceivable that one of these is more likely to occur if one is taking the medication on a daily basis. These more serious side effects include the partial or total loss of hearing and/or vision and an erection that lasts for more than four hours. Such a protracted erection, known medically as priapism, could permanently damage your penis’s erectile tissue and render you impotent for life.
