Avanafil (generic Stendra) is a drug whose action is aimed at combating erectile dysfunction and the treatment of impotence.
Avanafil is a second-generation drug. This means that the use of this drug side effects do not occur almost never. In addition, the medication has a faster and more delicate effect on the body of a man.
The drug begins to fully act within 10-15 minutes after taking the pill. For comparison, the previous generation of drugs gave effect only after 30-40 minutes. It is very pleasant that despite such a quick effect, the product so gently affects the whole body as a whole.
Avanafil is a drug that does not have a negative effect on the body, but at the same time effectively supports potency.
The penis increases at the time of sexual arousal due to the filling of the cavernous bodies of the organ with blood. However, in moments without excitement this does not happen. Why? The process is controlled by a special compound – an enzyme of specific phosphodiesterase of the 5th type.
This enzyme is found in the body of every man. But only for those who suffer from impotence, its level is almost always the same. In a healthy man, at the moment of excitation, this enzyme is blocked and it is neutralized, which makes it possible to have an erection and sexual intercourse.
With erectile dysfunction, this enzyme does not block. Avanafil is aimed at temporarily artificially blocking this compound. As a result, an erection occurs, and the man does not feel discomfort.
The disadvantages of Avanafil include the fact that the duration of exposure to the drug is relatively small. It reaches only 6 hours after taking the pill. Although some other potency-enhancing drugs last 6 times longer, a shorter period can also be considered an advantage. This is true for those who suffer from any problems with the cardiovascular system. Thanks to the rapid elimination of drugs from the body, blood vessels and the heart are minimally affected.
Side effects and contraindications
