One of the medical conditions that are becoming more and more widespread is erectile dysfunction. It affects men of all ages, while a constantly growing number of young males develop it because of high levels of stress present in their daily lives. Thankfully, medicine has already developed more than a few solutions to this problem. One of them is Caverta.
Caverta is a drug created by Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd that can disable the effects of erectile dysfunction. It contains Sildenafil, an ingredient used in every medicine of this type.
The aforementioned substance belongs to a group called PDE5 inhibitors. This stands for phosphodiesterase type 5, an enzyme that is responsible for the decrease of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) in the corpus cavernosum, a specific area located in the penis.
When there are no issues that affect the erection of a man, a standard procedure is followed. First, the male body produces nitric oxide, after receiving a certain level of sexual stimulation. That produced oxide binds to guanylate cyclase receptors, thus allowing the increase of cGMP concentration in the area, which leads to a successful erection.
The presence of the PDE enzyme disrupts this procedure since it doesn’t allow the accumulation of a sufficient cGMP quantity. All Caverta does is block the operation of that enzyme. This is more than enough for the person taking it.
When it comes to the side effects of using Caverta include nausea, flushing, nasal congestion and headaches. However, there are some more serious ones which, fortunately, are rare. These are sudden changes in blood pressure, blurred vision and even a cardiovascular malfunction that could lead to a heart attack.
The contraindications are a part that every man should pay attention to since ignoring it could have a lot of dangerous consequences.
Men who have very high or very low blood pressure should not take Caverta. The same goes for men who are suffering from impaired liver or kidney function. The final group that is also not allowed to take the medicine includes men with any type of cardiovascular problems. Needless to say, it should be avoided by all males who are allergic to Sildenafil.
Caverta is another proof of the extent to which medicine is helping us improve the quality of our lives on a daily basis. This time, it is men who are benefited from this drug, one that allows them to enjoy the pleasure of a trouble-free sexual activity.
