The active constituent in Filagra is Sildenafil citrate. Sildenafil Citrate inhibits PDE5- a substance that degrades CGMP which plays a vital role in penile erection. CGMP controls the tissues and muscles of the penis. In case the CGMP is depleted, the penile muscle returns back to its relaxed state.Filagra inhibits the depletion of PDE5 – and CGMP – resulting in longer lasting erections. Sildenafil may be used for the prevention and treatment of high altitude pulmonary edema associated with altitude sickness such as that suffered by mountain climbers.
