Valif is used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in adult men, a condition which implies difficulties in getting or keeping an erection. Valif will only work when you are sexually stimulated. It reduces the action of the natural chemical in your body which makes erections go away. Valif allows an erection to last long enough for you to satisfactorily complete sexual activity.
How to take Valif
Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. The recommended dose is 10 mg.
Take a Valif about 25 to 60 minutes before sexual activity. With sexual stimulation, you may achieve an erection anywhere from 25 minutes up to four to five hours after taking Valif. Swallow one tablet with a glass of water.
Do not take Valif film-coated tablets with any other forms of Valif. Do not take Valif more than once a day.
Tell your doctor if you think Valif is too strong or too weak. He or she may suggest a switch to an alternative Valif formulation with a different dose, depending on how well it works for you.
You can take Valif with or without food but preferably not after a heavy or high-fat meal as this may delay the effect.
Do not drink grapefruit juice when you use Valif. It can interfere with the usual effect of the medicine.
Avoid alcohol consumption as alcoholic drinks can make erection difficulties worse.
Men who take too much Valif may experience more side effects or may get severe back pain. If you take more Valif than you should, tell your doctor.
