Description

Sildenafil contains the active substance sildenafil which belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE 5) inhibitors. It works by helping to relax the blood vessels in your penis, allowing blood to flow into your penis when you get sexually excited. In most men Sildenafil works within an hour and effects last for about four hours - this doesn't mean the erection lasts for four hours, rather that an erection can be produced for up to four hours after taking a tablet.

  • if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to sildenafil or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet
