Causative factors include stress, concomitant illness and many more. It highly affects the relationship with spouse or partner. VILITRA contains vardenafil as active ingredient. It is also sold under the name LEVITRA. Following sexual stimulation, vardenafil acts by augmenting blood flow to the penis in order to attain and keep an erection. This medicine does not provide protection against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, gonorrhoea, syphilis).  Always use condoms during intercourse. VILITRA is not a sexual stimulant. It is a prescription drug; should be used only when prescribed by doctor.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

VILITRA 40mg is used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction by inhibiting PDE5 (phosphodiesterase5) present in the erectile tissue of the penis, walls of blood vessels and eyes (retina). PDE5 is an enzyme which carries out the disruption of cGMP. Nitric oxide and endothelial cells stimulate cGMP production which causes relaxation of vascular smooth muscles and enhances blood flow to various tissues of the body. VILITRA increases the amount of cGMPs in tissues by constraining PDE5. Increased cGMP cause vasodilation of blood vessels of the penis resulting in attainment of erection
