Viagra is one of the most popular medications in the world for erectile dysfunction. Used in many countries to treat ED, it has a well-documented effectiveness and safety profile. But did you know Viagra also has a shelf life?

How Long Does Viagra Last?

Viagra is generally prescribed in doses of 25 mg, 50 mg, or 100 mg. Its potency remains effective for up to 4 hours after it is taken. After that, the medication’s effect will gradually decline until it is no longer effective.

Shelf Life of Viagra

The shelf life of Viagra is roughly 5 years for tablets and 2 years for other forms. That does not mean that the medication is no longer effective after the 5-year period is up; rather, it means that with time, the active ingredients can degrade, making the medication weaker or less effective.

Steps to Extend the Shelf Life of Viagra

To extend the shelf life of Viagra, there are a couple things you can do.

    • Store in a cool, dry place: Keep the medication in its original packaging, and store it in a cool, dry place. Exposure to heat, light, or moisture can decrease the active ingredients and their effectiveness.
    • Do not mix with other medications: Viagra should not be taken with other medications, and mixing it with other drugs can reduce its effectiveness or cause dangerous side-effects.
    • Check the expiration date: Because of the potential for Viagra to lose potency over time, it is important to check the expiration date when purchasing or refilling the prescription.

If you have questions about the shelf life of Viagra or need assistance managing your erectile dysfunction, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
