Sildenafil Citrate 20 Mg

sildenafil citrate 20 mg

what is sildenafil citrate 20 mg?

Sildenafil is used to treat men who have erectile dysfunction (also called sexual impotence). Sildenafil belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. These medicines prevent an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type-5 from working too quickly. The penis is one of the areas where this enzyme works.

Erectile dysfunction is a condition where the penis does not harden and expand when a man is sexually excited, or when he cannot keep an erection. When a man is sexually stimulated, his body's normal response is to increase blood flow to his penis to produce an erection. By controlling the enzyme, sildenafil helps to maintain an erection after the penis is stroked. Without physical action to the penis, such as that occurring during sexual intercourse, sildenafil will not work to cause an erection.

Uses

Sildenafil is used orally as vasoactive therapy to facilitate attainment of a sexually functional erection in males with erectile dysfunction (ED, impotence). Sildenafil also is used orally or IV to improve exercise capacity and delay clinical worsening in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). The FDA and manufacturer state that use of sildenafil, particularly chronic use, is not recommended in children with PAH because of an increased risk of mortality.
