Used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED), Sildenafil belongs to a group of medicines called PDE5 inhibitors. These drugs prevent an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type-5 from working too fast. In turn, this makes it easier to get and maintain an erection during sexual stimulation. Note that any patients suffering from cardiovascular disease should consult a physician before using this treatment or related medicines.
Why choose Sildenafil?
ED can be a distressing problem and it may have a negative impact on your self-esteem and your relationships. Sildenafil offers a reliable and effective treatment. It contains the same active ingredient as Viagra (sildenafil citrate), but it is a cheaper alternative. The drug is effective within one hour and its positive effects can last for up to six hours.
What dose should I choose?
The treatment comes in tablet form and you should never take more than one within a 24-hour period. For further information on dosages, you can speak to your doctor or consult one of our knowledgeable healthcare professionals at Europa.
How should I take Sildenafil?
The drug usually works best when taken an hour before sexual activity. It is most effective when consumed on an empty stomach and without alcohol, and it can carry on working for between four and six hours.
How does Sildenafil work?
The medicine works by relaxing the muscles in the veins that carry blood to the penis. By doing this, it promotes increased blood flow, making it possible to get an erection during sexual excitation. Contrary to popular belief, the treatment does not cause spontaneous erections or have any effect on your sexual desire. You must be sexually aroused to get an erection using Sildenafil.
It is important to be aware that PDE5 inhibitors do not treat the underlying causes of ED, which can include physical problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure, and psychological issues like anxiety and depression. Because of this, it is important to seek medical advice to find out why you are experiencing ED.
What are the side effects of Sildenafil?
As with all medicines, there are potential side effects to consider. The most common include headaches, heartburn, flushed skin, nasal congestion, indigestion, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. Also, note that the treatment should never be taken with nitrates because it can cause a serious and potentially fatal drop in blood pressure.
