What does Sildenafil Citrate treat?
Sildenafil Citrate is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. This is also used in the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). It works by relaxing muscles found in the walls of blood vessels and increases blood flow to the penis. This helps achieve and maintain erection. However, it does not provide protection against sexually transmitted diseases.
