When famous Viagra come into the market a few decades ago, it was applauded for its positive effects on the body of men. Now, due to a lot of advancements in the field of medicine and pharmacy, there are many alternatives to it, one of which is the drug called Suhagra.
What is Suhagra?
Suhagra is often looked upon as a generic version of Viagra as they both have the same active ingredient, sildenafil citrate. The drug is primarily used by men as treatment for erectile dysfunction. Suhagra is available in the form of tablets in three different doses, namely 25, 50 and 100mg.
How does it work?
Most men who are taking Suhagra are satisfied because it effectively helps in getting and sustaining erections. Being a PDE5 inhibitor, Suhagra works by relaxing smooth muscles, which allows more blood to flow to the penis, thus resulting in a firm erection. More specifically, the drug inhibits the action of a particular enzyme (phosphodiesterase type 5) that is known to restrain erections.
Suhagra is not an aphrodisiac, so it won’t boost your libido. For the drug to start working, you need to get sexual stimulation.
Aside from being an effective ED drug, Suhagra can also be used for other purposes. Both men and women, sometimes use sildenafil with a view to boost the results of exercise. The drug has the vasodilating effect, which means that more blood flows to the muscles during a workout, thus supplying them with more oxygen and nutrients. However, this use is not officially approved.
Sildenafil is also used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension. For this purpose, the drug comes under the brand name Revatio.
What are its side effects?
Just like any other medication, Suhagra has its own set of side effects to the body. If you experience dizziness, headache, nausea, painful and/or prolonged (more than 4 hours) erections, tingling in various parts of the body, sudden vision and hearing impairment, irregular heartbeat, and swelling in hands, ankles and feet, you should seek medical attention.
It worth noting, though, that in most cases side effects don’t manifest at all. So most of those who use Suhagra have not experienced any adverse symptoms mentioned above unless they have an underlying medical condition that makes Suhagra a potentially dangerous drug for them.
Who cannot take Suhagra?
Sildenafil has some contra indications, so it is very important that you check with your doctor first before taking the drug. Generally, those who have heart disease, kidney and thyroid problems, certain diseases related to the eyes, and hypertension or hypotension should not take Suhagra as well as any other sildenafil drug.
