In the salt of the drug
As mentioned above, the active pharmaceutical ingredient of Fildena 120mg is Sildenafil Citrate, the popular drug market like Pfizer’s Viagra. Sildenafil was first discovered by Pfizer in 1989 for the treatment of heart-related chest pain. It was accepted for medical use in the United States and Europe in 1998. In 2017 its patent expired and generic versions began to appear. It works by deactivating an enzyme present in our body called PDE5 or phosphodiesterase – 5 that causes an increase in blood flow to the penis and is capable of causing a prolonged and prolonged erection in men.
how the drug works
As mentioned above, Sildenafil Citrate works by increasing blood flow to the penis, resulting in a long and lasting erection. To understand the effects of this drug, let’s first understand the anatomy of the male erection. A male erection is achieved when a chemical called NO (nitrous oxide) is produced in the male penis which internally activates an enzyme called “guanylate cyclase”. This guanylate cyclase converts a natural chemical in the body called GTP into C-GMP and this C-GMP is responsible for erections. Sildenafil deactivates the PDE-5 enzyme that is responsible for breaking down GMPs. In simpler language, sildenafil breaks down the enzyme (PDE-5) that is responsible for lowering the erectile effect of another enzyme (C-Gmp). Sildenafil citrate has the highest oral absorption compared to other drugs in the same class, with up to absorbed orally. Sildenafil takes approximately 1 hour to reach its maximum effect in the human body, which decreases with the intake of high-fat food.
