What Is Silvitra?
Silvitra is the trade name for sildenafil citrate and vardenafil citrate used in the same preparation for a double effects. Sildenafil is international nonproprietary name for Viagra, while vardenafil is a generic name for Levitra. Silvitra is an oral treatment for erectile dysfunction or impotence in men. Impotence is defined as an inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual activity. Silvitra helps restore erectile dysfunction by increasing blood flow to the penis. Sexual stimulation is necessary for the use and effectiveness of Silvitra. Silvitra is a treatment reserved for men.
Silvitra is a generic medication that is one of its kind. It offers the benefits of world’s two most popular pills against ED: the legendary Viagra and Levitra. While Viagra, the magical blue pill, hardly needs any additional presentation, Levitra is its somewhat under-radar follow-up drug that is considered to be the safest of all existing oral treatments for ED.
Active Substances & Action Mechanism
During an erection during sexual stimulation, there is release in the cavernous body of the penis of a substance called nitric oxide (NO). This release of nitric oxide will cause an increase in a mediator for erection.
Silvitra is an inhibitor of an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5. This type 5 phosphodiesterase enzyme is responsible for the breakdown of the mediator that allows erection. The inhibition of the phosphodiesterase type (PDE5) by sildenafil citrate therefore allows an increase of this mediator. This increase in concentration of this mediator will then allow a relaxation of the blood vessels favoring an influx of blood into the cavernous body causing an erection during sexual arousal. Sexual stimulation is necessary for there to be NO release.
Absorption is fast. The concentration of the drug is maximum between 30 minutes and 2 hours after ingestion. Sildenafil citrate is eliminated mainly by the liver. The elimination half-life (time taken by a substance to lose half of its pharmacological or physiological activity) is 4 hours.
Silvitra helps obtaining an erection sufficient to perform a sexual act.
This treatment is indicated for men over 18 years old with erectile dysfunction or impotence. It is not indicated in women. This treatment is prescribed after consulting a doctor.
Sildenafil citrate or Silvitra is an oral treatment for erectile dysfunction or impotence in men. It helps restore poor erectile function by increasing blood flow to the penis. It is prescribed after medical advice and may be contraindicated in some cases.
Active Substance Sildenafil
Sildenafil citrate, originally produced under the trademark name Viagra, is an oral treatment for erectile dysfunction or impotence in men. It helps restore poor erectile function by increasing blood flow to the penis. It is prescribed after medical advice and may be contraindicated in some cases.
Viagra is given in men over 18 years of age in the absence of contraindications. It can be taken during or outside meals. Viagra works more slowly after a high fat meal. It takes one hour before sex. It is recommended not to exceed one dose per day. Viagra is prescribed after a review of cardiovascular function by the doctor. Any sexual activity carries a cardiac risk.
Precautions for using sildenafil should be taken in patients with certain diseases such as:
- Penile deformity or Peyronie’s disease (sclerosis of corpora cavernosa)
- Heart problems. It must be assessed whether the heart can tolerate physical activity generated by sexual intercourse
- A bleeding disorder or ulcer
- A haematological disorder that can cause a painful or persistent erection called priapism
- A kidney or liver problem since the drug is eliminated by these 2 organs
he combination of sildenafil with drugs called nitrates can cause severe hypotension. Medications prescribed to relieve angina or angina contain nitrates. They should not be prescribed at the same time. It is the same for products containing nitrites such as poppers or other orgasm enhancers sold in sex shops. The effect of sildenafil may be increased if the patient takes other protease inhibitors as for HIV treatment. The dosage of viagra will then be adapted to a lower dose.
Patients treated with alpha blockers for arterial hypertension or enlarged prostate may experience vertigo under sildenafil secondary to a rapid decline in blood pressure during the transition from supine to upright.
The drug is contraindicated if:
- There is an allergy to Sildenafil or one of the components of Viagra
- There is a serious heart disease
- There is severe liver failure
- If there has recently been a myocardial infarction or heart attack, a stroke
- There is low blood pressure
- There is an intake of drugs called nitrates that can cause a fall in potentially dangerous voltage
- There is a rare hereditary eye disease (retinitis pigmentosa)
- There is a loss of view secondarily to a non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy which is an impairment of the eye characterized by necrosis of the optic nerve
Viagra can cause vision problems and dizziness. The patient must already know his reaction to the medication before taking the car. This medicine is not intended for women.
Active Substance Vardenafil
The action of vardenafil is analogous to that of sildenafil, since it belongs to the same class of drugs called PDE5 inhibitors. The physiological mechanism responsible for erection of the penis involves the release of nitric oxide (NO) into the cavernous body during sexual stimulation. Nitric oxide (NO), via an enzyme, increases concentrations of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), inducing a relaxation of the smooth muscles of the cavernous body, promoting the inflow of blood into the penis.
Phosphate-specific phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) in the cavernous body is responsible for its degradation. When the NO / cGMP pathway is activated as a result of sexual stimulation, inhibition of PDE5 by vardenafil results in increased cGMP levels and thus increased blood flow to the penile tissues.
Sexual stimulation is necessary for the PDE5 inhibitory drugs to produce their beneficial pharmacological effects.
Medical Applications: Silvitra In Solving Sexual Health Problems
The prescription of Silvitra is intended to allow the patient to have satisfactory sexual intercourse again. The drug does not affect user’s libido, but it restores the natural mechanism of developing erection in response to sexual stimulation. Alongside with that, Silvitra benefits sexual health in a number of other ways, by:
- providing a stamina boost
- augmenting virility
- decreasing recovery time
- alleviating performance anxiety
- giving better control over duration of the sexual act
- increases erectile hardness multifold
- fortifies sexual constitution
Dosage & Posology
Silvitra is taken by mouth with a sufficient amount of water, preferably in a fasted state or after a light meal. Foods high on fat content can slow down and inhibit the health outcomes of the drug. Alcohol consumption is best avoided when you are taking Silvitra, but according to the original manufacturer of sildenafil, Pfizer, small amount of alcohol are admissible during the therapy.
Take 1 tablet of Silvitra 40-60 minutes before engaging sexually. Sexual stimulation is required for the drug to work.
Do not take more than 1 Silvitra tablet during 24 hours.
Silvitra In PE & ED
Silvitra is used to address erectile issues, but it can be individually prescribed as a solution for PE (premature ejaculation). The drug is not a first line defense against PE, but it is reported to indirectly improve the clinical picture in patients suffering from shortened IVL (intravaginal latency) time. The mechanism of its action is rather that of a placebo, since the use of Silvitra helps to let go of anxiety associated with the fear of performing badly during sexual act, which causes some men to climax prematurely. To this point, since Silvitra improves control over erection, it automatically help to last longer during sexual act.
Silvitra Or Viagra?
There is no one-size-fits all answer to this question, both drugs being effective, safe and with a patient-year history that goes way back. Since Silvitra and Viagra share the same active ingredient sildenafil, their action coincide almost fully, with but a slight difference and more impactful efficacy skewed in favor of the former.
There are, however, cases when the use of Silvitra is not recommended and even associated with certain health risks. This adage holds true for special groups of patients: men with other health conditions that require smaller doses of sildenafil and senior citizens.
One should keep in mind that Silvitra is a very powerful medication aimed at restoring erectile function in individuals with severely compromised to full ED (complete inability to achieve penile hardness), and therefore its use is not justified in patients affected moderately.
Silvitra is a generic pill that is not available in the drugstore chains locally, due to the policies of brand drug distribution. More expensive original medications are given all the shelf space, helping large pharmaceutical companies win back the money invested in drug development, as well as earn significant revenues.
Generic drugs like Silvitra can be ordered online, but one should be cautious when placing an order at a new pharmacy. The rule of thumb is to check peer reviews, contacts of the drugstore, paying attention to physical address and landline phone number (the absence of those is not a good sign), secured connection (look for”http” in the address field or a padlock in the upper right corner of the page) and other credentials that help telling a reliable e-commerce participant from rogue pharmacies.
The price for Silvitra online is significantly lower than that of brand medications, with its safety and benefits being superior, which makes ordering the drug on the Internet a highly economical and practical solution.
The most common side effect is headache. Other fairly common side effects may occur such as:
- Redness in the face
- Digestive disorders
- Vision disorders such as light sensitivity, color perception disorder, visual acuity decrease
- Dizzying sensations
- Stuffy nose
- Silvitra like all medicines can give allergic reactions
- Silvitra can cause prolonged and painful erections. In this case, the doctor must be consulted urgently.
- Other serious but rare side effects have been reported:
- Hypotension or hypotension with fainting
- A cerebral vascular accident
- A loss of hearing
- Heart arrhythmias
