What Is Sildenafil 20 Mg

What Is Sildenafil 20 Mg

Description

Sildenafil is the active component in Viagra, but it is also in another drug called Revatio; so, sildenafil is both Viagra and something else, Revatio. The Sildenafil in Viagra is made in 3 doses (25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg) and is used for the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (ED). The Sildenafil in Revatio comes only in a 20 mg dose and, in that dose, has been approved for the treatment of Pulmonary Hypertension.

Uses

Sildenafil is used to treat high blood pressure in the lungs (pulmonary hypertension). It works by relaxing and widening the blood vessels in your lungs which allows the blood to flow more easily. Decreasing high blood pressure in the lungs allows your heart and lungs to work better and improves your ability to exercise.
