Suhagra 100 from the pharmaceutical company Cipla is a drug for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men. The drug is produced in tablets for oral consumption that contain the active ingredient sildenafil citrate. Sildenafil is what is known to be a type 5 phosphodiesterase inhibitor (PDE 5). Inhibition of PDE5 can relax muscles and increase blood flow to specific areas of the body.
Efficacy of Sildenafil
This Cipla drug has the same active ingredient found in the more commonly known erectile dysfunction drug called Viagra. This generic version acts the same way.
Erectile dysfunction is classified as the inability to get or maintain a stable erection. Sildenafil helps relax the muscles in the genital area by expanding the blood vessels which increase blood flow to the penis. This helps to encourage stiffening of the penis, but only when there is sexual arousal in the body.
Recommendations for use
Sildenafil should be taken 30-60 minutes before any planned sexual activity to experience the peak of the drug's effects at the perfect time. The effects of the drug will last around 4-6 hours or potentially even longer if sexual arousal is present. Try to avoid taking more than 1 tablet (100 mg) for 24 hours and avoid chewing the tablet before swallowing. The drug can be taken with or without food, but ideally it should also be taken on an empty stomach. This ensures that you receive the maximum possible effects from the drug.
