Viagra (sildenafil) is a phosphodiesterase-type 5 (PDE-5) inhibitor. Blocking PDE-5 allows for opening of blood vessles in the penis to help create an erection.

However, Viagra may be taken anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours before sexual activity. This helps for a firmer erection. Based on effectiveness and toleration, patients may increase to a maximum of 100 mg or decrease to 25 mg

Viagra is a drug that lives up to all the hype, lifting the hopes and self-esteem of up to 80 percent of men suffering from non-organic impotence. Others with mild to moderate organic impotence also respond to Viagra. Additionally, Viagra also seems to enhance sexual performance and enjoyment and reduce the “latent period” between erection even in men who have no dysfunction. Vascular smooth muscle (VSM) cells surround arteries and arterioles, contracting and relaxing the arteries to regulate blood pressure. The given state of smooth muscle cells, and their effect on blood pressure, understandably have a profound effect on the male sexual organ. Good luck and I hope it works well for you!
