What is sildenafil?

Sildenafil relaxes muscles found in the walls of blood vessels and increases blood flow to particular areas of the body. Sildenafil under the name Viagra is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. Another brand of sildenafil is Revatio, which is used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension and improve exercise capacity in men and women. Do not take Viagra while also taking Revatio, unless your doctor tells you to. When Pfizer lost its UK patent for the drug in June 2013 it made way for generic manufacturers to produce sildenafil, or ‘generic Viagra’. It costs a fraction of the price of Viagra, and has made the treatment more accessible to a wider range of patients. You can now choose to buy Viagra, Pfizer’s branded drug, or sildenafil, the generic version.

What is sildenafil and how does it work?

Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra. Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, and generic sildenafil are all part of a family of drugs called PDE-5 inhibitors. These drugs are used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). Erectile dysfunction medication works by preventing the chemical process that lets blood leave an erect penis. Basically, PDE-5 inhibitors tip the chemical balance in the penis to favor getting and maintaining an erection.

Dosage

For most patients, the recommended dose is 50 mg taken, as needed, approximately 1 hour before sexual activity. However, Viagra may be taken anywhere from 4 hours to 0.5 hour before sexual activity. Based on effectiveness and toleration, the dose may be increased to a maximum recommended dose of 100 mg or decreased to 25 mg. The maximum recommended dosing frequency is once per day. Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Viagra.

Storage

Store Viagra at 77 degrees F (25 degrees C). Brief storage at temperatures between 59 and 86 degrees F (15 and 30 degrees C) is permitted. Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep Viagra out of the reach of children and away from pets.
