What is sildenafil used for?

Sildenafil citrate is a treatment for erectile dysfunction, sometimes known as ED or impotence. Sildenafil helps men with ED to get an erection in response to sexual stimulation.

How does sildenafil work?

Sildenafil works by helping more blood get into your penis when you are sexually aroused. An erection is produced via a complex chain of events, involving signals from the nervous system and the release of chemical messengers within the tissues of the penis. One of the messengers released when you are aroused is called cyclic GMP.
