Should you watch what you eat after you take erectile dysfunction medication?

ANSWER

Sometimes eating a big meal right after you take an erectile dysfunction drug may not always be the best idea. If you swallow sildenafil (Viagra) with a high-fat meal, such as a steak dinner, it may take longer for it to work. You can take other ED drugs with or without food.
