When the patient returns to collect their medication, what other advice can you offer him?

Looking at the other sections in the monograph, you see in the ‘patient and carer advice’ section that the effect can be delayed if taken with a meal, so you counsel the patient on this (6). You tell the patient that they should take their medication one hour before sexual activity and explain some common side effects using the information in the side effects section. You explain that there is a potential drug interaction and suggest that he starts on 25mg because of this, with the option to increase this to 50mg.
