Uses Of Sildenafil Citrate 20Mg

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.(See Cautions: Pediatric Precautions.)

How long does sildenafil citrate 20mg take to work?

The effects of Viagra will vary from person to person. As a general rule, Viagra is thought to start working in most people from around 30 minutes after taking the drug.

It is important to understand that taking Viagra tablets alone will not cause an erection. Viagra must be taken in combination with some form of sexual stimulation (visual, tactile or otherwise) in order for an erection to occur.

Side Effects

  • Mortality with pediatric
  • Hypotension
  • Vision loss
  • Hearing loss
  • Priapism
  • Vaso-occlusive crisis
  • flushing stuffy nose

Drug Interactions

In drug-drug interaction studies, sildenafil (25 mg, 50 mg, or 100 mg) and the alpha-blocker doxazosin (4 mg or 8 mg) were administered simultaneously to patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) stabilized on doxazosin therapy. In these study populations, mean additional reductions of supine systolic and diastolic blood pressure of 7/7 mmHg, 9/5 mmHg, and 8/4 mmHg, respectively, were observed. Mean additional reductions of standing blood pressure of 6/6 mmHg, 11/4 mmHg, and 4/5 mmHg, respectively, were also observed.

Overdoses

In studies with healthy volunteers of single doses up to 800 mg, adverse events were similar to those seen at lower doses but rates and severities were increased.

In cases of overdose, standard supportive measures should be adopted as required. Renal dialysis is not expected to accelerate clearance as sildenafil is highly bound to plasma proteins and it is not eliminated in the urine.

Contraindications

REVATIO is contraindicated in patients with:

Concomitant use of organic nitrates in any form, either regularly or intermittently, because of the greater risk of hypotension Concomitant use of riociguat, a guanylate cyclase stimulator. PDE5 inhibitors, including sildenafil, may potentiate the hypotensive effects of riociguat.

Known hypersensitivity to sildenafil or any component of the tablet, injection, or oral suspension. Hypersensitivity, including anaphylactic reaction, anaphylactic shock and anaphylactoid reaction, has been reported in association with the use of sildenafil.
