An Introduction to VigRX Plus Dosages
Unlike many other sexual enhancement products, VigRX Plus
™ is meant to be taken every single day, not just before sexual intercourse. The standard recommended dose of VigRX
Plus is one capsule taken twice daily. However, it is not known if this dose is either effective or safe.
Problems With Dosing for Herbal Supplements
For most herbal supplements, there are no precise and scientifically established dosing recommendations. Herbal supplements do not have to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As a result, the careful dosing studies that are required for prescription medications are not required for herbal supplements. Without dosing studies, not much information is available about dosing guidelines for most herbal supplements. For many herbal supplements (including VigRX Plus), there is simply not enough information to know for sure whether the "recommended" dose is safe or effective.
To complicate the problem even further, there is little regulation for the manufacturing of herbal supplements. In some cases, herbal supplements have been contaminated with various substances, including heavy metals or prescription drugs. Over the years, several supposedly natural and herbal "male enhancement" supplements were found to be intentionally contaminated with sildenafil
) or other similar drugs. Also, supplements sometimes have the problem of containing too much or, more often, too little of the labeled active ingredients.
