Sildenafil Citrate (Generic Viagra)

Sildenafil Citrate is a prescription medicine that is used for the treatment of a common male sexual disorder called Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Originally, it was meant for the treatment of pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs). During clinical trials, scientists found that Sildenafil Citrate was helping men to achieve harder and durable erection. Since then, it is predominately prescribed for treating erectile dysfunction.

Sildenafil Citrate, under the brand name Viagra, is used to treat erectile dysfunction, or sexual impotence, in men. Another brand of this medicinal drug is Revatio, which is used to manage the symptoms of pulmonary hypertension. However, it is now available in various generic potencies and versions (Generic Viagra), which are available at relatively reasonable price.

Pharmacological Action

Sildenafil Citrate belongs to a group of drugs called phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) inhibitors. By inhibiting the secretion of PDE5, the drug allows the body to release a chemical called nitric oxide. Elevation in nitric oxide increases the blood circulation throughout the system. The muscles in the walls of the arteries and the blood vessels dilate so that the blood flows flawlessly into the spongy erectile tissues for an erection. This way an erection is possible on sexual stimulation.
