Sildenafil 50mg tablets are prescribed to help men tackle erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence. This is when a man cannot obtain or maintain and erect penis suitable for sexual activity.
The active ingredient is 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 the increased flow of blood if you are sexually stimulated.
Please note that Sildenafil will only work if you are sexually stimulated.
