Product Description

Active Drug Information

Vardenafil, the active component present in Filitra belongs to a class of PDE-5 inhibitors. It is an almost colorless, solid substance having a molecular weight of 579.1 g/mol and water solubility of 0.11 mg/ml.

Chemically, it is piperazine, 1-[[3-(1,4-dihydro-5-methyl-4-oxo-7-propylimidazo[5,1-f][1,2,4]triazin-2-yl)-4-ethoxyphenyl]sulfonyl]-4-ethyl-, monohydrochloride. It is selective cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP)-specific phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor.

Mechanism of Action

The action of this medication can be observed as early as 10 minutes, while its effect lasts for a duration of five to seven hours on an average.

Vardenafil present in Filitra inhibits the action of PDE-5 enzyme, which is present in abundance inside the penile region. This inhibitory action of PDE-5 enzyme stops the degradation of the endogenous chemical substance known as cGMP. The role of cGMP is the relaxation of smooth muscles and dilation of the penile arteries. More amount of blood passes through the arteries located inside the penile region. This improved blood supply produces a firm and strong penile erection required for satisfactory sexual intercourse.
