Medicine is the science that affects our lives more than any other. Dozens of inventions, new methods and breakthroughs help people to fight health issues they’re dealing with and guard themselves from other ones.
When it comes to men’s health, one of the most popular problems, one that every man has definitely heard of is erectile dysfunction. It has both physical and psychological consequences, since it hinders sexual activity. It can have more than one cause. Especially in our day and age, with the extremely high levels of stress people experience, it is becoming more and more frequent, even among young men.
Fortunately for patients all around the world, researchers from various pharmaceutical companies have created many drugs that can make the effects of erectile dysfunction disappear in a matter of minutes after taking a dose. One of them is Silagra.
Silagra is a medicine using the exact same active ingredient contained in the Viagra pill, sildenafil citrate. This is a cGMP-specific phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor. The PDE5 enzyme is the one responsible for the occurrence of the aforementioned sexual issues since it degrades the quantity of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP).
The normal process that is required so that an erection can be achieved is the following:
- The human body releases nitric oxide in the area of the penis called corpus cavernosum.
- The oxide binds to receptors of another enzyme, guanylate cyclase. This leads to an increase of cGMP concentration in the area, which eventually leads to an erection.
What sildenafil does is block the operation of PDE5, so that the cGMP levels remain high until the completion of the copulation.
The side effects of Silagra are the same as the ones of Viagra. Some of them are nasal congestion, flushing, sudden change in blood pressure and headaches. Once again, there have been cases of more serious side effects like greatly increased cardiac rhythm, breathing difficulties and even heart attacks.
Just like any other drug, men who choose to take Silagra must be aware of the above side effects and also the contraindications. It should not be used when the person is suffering from any type of cardiovascular issues, low blood pressure or function of the kidneys or the liver.
When all precautions are taken and rules are followed, Silagra, just like any other drug, is guaranteed to operate properly and offer the desired result to the patient, which is a pleasant and trouble-free sexual experience.
