Silvitra 100/20 mg is a medication that is usually used to treat men’s sexual problems such as impotence also known as erectile dysfunction (ED). The medical condition when a man loses the ability to achieve and maintain an erection is called ED. It also may be used to treat other conditions such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), or other conditions not listed in this document. Sildenafil Citrate and Vardenafil are the active ingredients of Silvitra 100/20 mg. Despite that, it contains other inactive ingredients such as magnesium stearate, hypromellose, triacetin, lactose, microcrystalline cellulose, and others. Silvitra does not protect you or your partner from sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea, HIV infection, syphilis, and others. However, you should use dental dams or condoms during sexual activity. It is not recommended to use Silvitra without the doctor’s approval because you may experience unwanted results.
Silvitra 100/20 mg works by blocking the action of the phosphodiesterase type-5 (PDE-5) enzyme. Hence, the PDE-5 enzyme breaks down the cGMP substance that is responsible to return the penis to its normal state after sexual intercourse. That’s why an erection may last 4-6 hours. Moreover, Silvitra 100/20 mg improves the flow of blood through tissues in the penis, causing a hard erection.
The manufacturer of Silvitra 100/20 mg is Dharam Distributors.
