How Does Vilitra 20 mg Work?
Cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) plays a crucial role in achieving an erection as it increases the vasodilation of the penile muscles, which in turn increases blood flow.
However, PDE-5 is an enzyme that breaks down cGMP and causes a weak erection. The main ingredient of Vilitra, called Vardenafil, works by acting like cGMP and blocking the PDE-5 enzyme.
It is structurally similar to cGMP, allowing the PDE-5 enzyme to bind to Vardenafil instead of cGMP. An increase in cGMP concentration in the blood leads to increased blood circulation in the penis, helping to attain or retain a firm erection during sexual activity.
It is important to note that cGMP is activated only when NO (nitric oxide) is released in the corpus cavernosum, the erectile tissue in the penis. NO is released only in response to sufficient sexual stimulation. Therefore, Vilitra 20 mg will not work in the absence of sexual stimulation.
Uses of Vilitra 20mg
Vilitra 20 mg is commonly prescribed for the treatment of the early stages of erectile dysfunction, helping to attain and maintain an erection during sexual activity.
Recommended Dosage for Vilitra 20
If taken occasionally, as per your need, taking one pill 30 minutes to an hour before sexual activity is recommended. If taken as per your doctor’s advice, follow their instructions, usually one pill per day. Do not take more than the recommended dosage of one tablet per day unless stated otherwise by your physician.
It is recommended to avoid taking the pill more than four hours before sexual activity, as its potency begins to reduce after that time. You can take it with or without food, but it works faster without food.
If taken on an as-needed basis, there is no missed dosage. For those taking it daily, if you missed a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is close to the time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take only the next one. Do not take two pills within 24 hours without consulting your physician.
It is not safe to take more than 20mg of Vilitra as research has shown that the highest tolerable dose of Vardenafil is about 80 mg. Overdosing may cause side effects like nausea, dizziness, and myalgia, which are usually rare and of low intensity, to become more intense. It may also cause severe back pain. Contact your doctor if you have accidentally taken more than the usual dose.
