Sildenafil Citrate

Sildenafil is used for the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction in Men.

Erectile Dysfunction or Impotence is a condition in which the penis is not able to get or keep an erection firm enough to take part in sexual intercourse. Sildenafil belongs to the category of medications called PDE-5 Inhibitors. PDE-5 enzyme is responsible for the decreased blood flow in the penile veins causing Erectile Dysfunction. Sildenafil blocks the action of this enzyme and helps increase the blood flow in the penile veins, helping the penis to get an erection. Sildenafil usually comes in the form of oral pills, which are meant to be taken orally with the help of water. The pills can be taken with or without an empty stomach. The medication should be taken around 30-60 minutes before taking part in sexual intercourse, and the effects of Sildenafil are known to last for around 4-5 hours. It is crucial to consult with a doctor before the use of this medicine to make sure the user has a safer experience using this. It is also not advised to use the medicine more than once in 24 hours because that can lead to overdose. Overdosing on Sildenafil can lead to experiencing side effects. Seek medical help immediately if the side effects do not go away with time and in case of severe side effects.
