About sildenafil

Sildenafil (Viagra, Revatio) is a moderately priced drug used to treat erection problems in men. It is also used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension, a serious heart and lung condition. This drug is more popular than comparable drugs. It is available in generic and brand versions. Generic sildenafil is covered by most Medicare and insurance plans, but some pharmacy coupons or cash prices may be lower.

Uses

Sildenafil is used to treat male sexual function problems (impotence or erectile dysfunction-ED). In combination with sexual stimulation, sildenafil works by increasing blood flow to the penis to help a man get and keep an erection.This drug does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, hepatitis B, gonorrhea, syphilis). Practice "safe sex" such as using latex condoms. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.
