Fildena is used for treating erectile dysfunction. It is an orally taken medicine consisting of sildenafil citrate as active constituent which is a Phosphodiesterase type-5 inhibitor. This medicine is useful to treat impotence in men. It helps a man in attaining erection and maintains it for successful physical intercourse. Fildena works by blocking the enzyme phosphodiesterase in the body. In combination with sexual stimulation, sildenafil functions by helping the blood flow into the penis to achieve and maintain erection during physical intercourse.
Use the medicine in the dose similar to that prescribed by doctor. This medicine shows effectiveness in the presence of complete sexual arousal. Once taken the medicine remains effective up to 4 hours; it is recommended that the pill should be taken at least 30 minutes prior to the sexual intercourse. For better results, avoid high fat diet before you take Fildena. Sildenafil works faster when the fat content in the blood is low.
