Mechanism of action:
The penile erection is caused because of the engorgement of the penis with the blood that occurs with the help of blood vessels that carries blood to the penis and increases the delivery of blood. Again, these blood vessels take away the blood from the penis and thus decrease the removal of the blood. Due to sexual stimulation, nitric oxide is produced and released in the penis. This nitric oxide is responsible for activating the enzyme guanylate cyclase that is known for the production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). cGMP plays a vital role and is responsible for the erection. This cGMP is known to affect the amount of blood that blood vessel carries and then remove from the penis.
In addition to this, Sildenafil is responsible for the inhibition of the phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) that destroys cGMP. Therefore, this generic medicine works by preventing the destruction of cGMP and also it is because of the medicine that cGMP accumulate and remain for long time. The longer stay of cGMP is essential for engorgement of penis for long time.
