    Hello @bigB and welcome to the community. 

    On the NHS page it lists a few reasons that it may not be effective and reminds users that "Taking sildenafil alone will not cause an erection. You need to be aroused for it to work."

    Some of the other reasons listed are:
    • you have not waited long enough after taking it before trying to have sex
    • you have waited too long after taking it to have sex
    • the dose is not high enough
    • you're not sexually aroused enough
    If you are still having problems with ED it may be worth speaking to your doctor about adjusting the dose.

    I hope that helps.

    HI @bigB most hospitals have an ED clinic now and I personally found ours very helpful.
