What Sildenafil is and what it is used for
Sildenafil contain the active substance sildenafil, which belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. The action of Sildenafil is to assist the enlargement of the blood vessels of the penis, which facilitates its blood filling in sexual arousal.
