If there is one medication that has revolutionized the medical world more than any other discovery or invention in the last few decades, it is certainly Viagra. It is the brand name of the drug containing the salt Sildenafil that works to increase blood flow around penile area to give a hard erection of a man who has been experiencing erectile dysfunction. The inability to get erection has been there for thousands of years but earlier afflicted old men only and soft erections were characteristic of old age. But today, the problem has taken epidemic proportions shattering the confidence of men in their thirties and forties also.
Generic Sildenafil is a drug that inhibits PDE5 enzyme, specifically one around the penile area that breaks down cGMP. Now it is a known fact that cGMP is a chemical that helps in dilating blood vessels which is a prerequisite for increased blood flow to have hard erections. A patient suffering from ED has active secretion of PDE5 enzyme that keeps on breaking cGMP making a person unable to achieve hard erections. When the salt Sildenafil reaches in the bloodstream it works to inhibit PDE5, thereby creating conditions ripe to let erection take place as soon a person is aroused.
Sildenafil therefore allows more blood flow around the penis by stopping or preventing degradation of cGMP through PDE5 enzymes. 1998 was the year when Viagra was launched in the markets worldwide, and since then it has been one wonder drug to treat Erectile Dysfunction (ED) that has been in high demand despite cheap alternatives like Tadalafil and Vardenafil being made available in the market.
The main thing to remember with Generic Sildenafil is that it is not a permanent cure to erectile dysfunction and it only allows a man suffering from ED to have penile erection by creating favorable conditions. It is not that a man eating Generic Sildenafil will have an automatic erection. It is only when a man is sexually aroused that increased blood flow to the penile area translates into a hard erection. Another myth that goes with Sildenafil is that increases sexual desire or libido. There is nothing to suggest or prove this statement and people who have taken Generic Sildenafil to treat Erectile Dysfunction say that they are happy to have an erection alone.
For most men, the recommended starting dose is 50 mg.
