Delayed ejaculation after Sildenafil 50 mg


I'm male, 46 and was suffering from mild ED for some time.The physician prescribed 50 mg Sildenafil (Viagra).

It's very effective and has worked well for me.I'm able to maintain a hard erection but I'm experiencing delayed ejaculation.

My doctor told me the delayed ejaculation is common with 50 mg dosage of Sildenafil  and he said that Sildenafil 25 mg should be adequate and will not lead to delayed ejaculation.

I don't smoke and have no other major health problems. Is it useful to have intercourse 3-4 hours after taking the pill (25 mg), to slightly reduce the effect of the pill on ejaculation ?

Appreciate any advice related to this, thanks in advance !

Have you followed the doctor's advice and tried the 25 mg?  That would be what I'd do.  This may solve the problem quite easily.

Thanks, I haven't tried yet but will soon. Any idea if its better to wait until the effect of the pill wears off.....which might induce ejaculation and make it easier?
