Can I Split a Chewable Viagra Pill?

I bought some sildenafil from some generic lab, it’s from the local pharm so they are legit. Anyway I noticed on the box it says you are supposed to chew and not swallow it. Never used this one before. My question is, can I divide the pill? I only need 25mg, so I need to cut the 100mg pill in 4. It comes in an anoying shape as well but whatever, i’ll try to get symmetric pieces. I just want to ask if I can split them since they are supposed to be chewed and im not sure if the compound isn’t compressed as the regular pills you have to swallow with water that I can split fine.

Example, “take the sildenafil pill with an empty stomatch”. Does this mean 1 hour after eating? 2 hours? 4 hours? this was never clear to me. I mean it probably means on the amount, let’s say a breakfast, some bread, some protein like cold turkey, some fats so add some cheese, orange juice… when do I take the sildenafil after that?

There is so many variables to this but il go off of you eating a “normal” meal. In which case most medical literature will say between 1.5-2 hours… Or you can take an hour before meal… Idk how long that stuff takes to work never used it… Might be uncomfortable sitting thru dinner with a raging boner tho

Well it’s like one hour before it starts working but i’ve read chewable ones are very fast like 15 minutes?

Anyway can I split the chewable pill?

Why not?

The only difference will be half the mg of the effective ingredient. so I guess

I was just wondering because I have never tried chewable ones, so I was scared that if I split it the compound will be a powder that is lost when I split the pill. The ones that u swallow with water are compressed so u can break them, im not sure about this chewable material.
