More about Viagra

The ED pill belongs to the family of PDE-5 inhibitors. It has made a remarkable position in the family. For its effectiveness and the vast gained popularity, it has to stand ahead in the row. Viagra comes as a brand version of the generic Sildenafil, the active ingredient present in the ED pill.

The ED pill was first introduced as to treat heart problems or issues. But later it was seen that the pill is showing much more effective in treating the erectile dysfunction. Thereafter the pill came to be used as an ED pill.  In the year 1996, the ED pill was patent. But on March 27, 1998, Viagra was approved for treating erectile dysfunction by FDA. Henceforth, Viagra became the first oral treatment to treat impotence. This is how the ED pill has marked its beginning and is still continuing serving the purpose.

What exactly Viagra do?

All the PDE-5 inhibitors are used to treat erectile dysfunction. Viagra too works for the similar purpose.  When a person is sexually stimulated, nitric oxide is released from the nerve ending and endothelial cells of the penis. Then after an enzyme is released that converts the GTP ( guanosine triphosphate ) into the cGMP  ( guanosine monophosphate ) this helps to relax the smooth muscle cells and makes a free pathway for the blood to flow freely into the penile nerve. Thus, this makes a firm and a long-lasting erection.

Men who suffer from erectile dysfunction produce a very little amount of Nitrate Oxide. This results in the small amount of cGMP. This does not make enough blood to pass into the penile nerve, which results in impotence.

 How long does the ED pill last?

The ED pill has a half-life of around four hours. You must grab the pill 30 minutes before the sexual intercourse. But to make the pill work effectively, a person must be sexually active or must have the urge of intimacy.
