Sildenafil is the generic version of the brand name drug Viagra and is used for treating erectile dysfunction (ED).

How does Sildenafil work?
Sildenafil citrate belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE 5) inhibitors. It works by helping to relax the blood vessels in your penis, which allows blood to flow into your penis when you get sexually excited. Sildenafil will only help you get an erection if you are sexually stimulated.
How do you take Sildenafil?
The recommended starting dose is 50 mg. One tablet should be taken one hour before sexual activity. It takes 30-60 minutes for Sildenafil to work. Sildenafil can last up to 4 hours.
Do not exceed one tablet per day.
Heavy meals or food may slow down the absorption and the action of Sildenafil.
