Caverta 100 mg is the pharmaceutical brand name for the active component sildenafil citrate. To treat erectile dysfunction (ED), it is most commonly used with other drugs in the phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor class.
Caverta 100 mg is effective because it blocks the action of phosphodiesterase type 5, the enzyme responsible for breaking down cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). Increased levels of cGMP, produced in response to sexual arousal, relax penile blood vessel smooth muscles and enhance blood flow. Because of the enhanced blood flow made possible by the resulting relaxation, a man is able to get and keep an erection.
Age, overall health, and the degree of erectile dysfunction can all affect the recommended dosage of Caverta 100 mg. It is advisable to take one pill 30 minutes to an hour before sexual activity, with a glass of water. Caverta 100 mg has an impact that lasts between four and six hours, allowing for a more uninhibited sexual encounter during that time.
