Female Viagra

What is it used for?

Female Viagra (sildenafil citrate) is the first oral drug with a clinically confirmed efficacy in fighting the symptoms of Female Sexual Arousal Disorder, age-related difficulties associated with sexual desire in women in menopause syndrome, difficulty in reaching orgasm, and other issues linked to female sexuality.

Female Viagra contains sildenafil citrate. By placing an order for Female Viagra at our store, you confirm your awareness of what sildenafil is, how it is used, what the correct doses and safety instructions are. Medical advice is required prior to the therapy commencement. In case of developing side effects and unwanted reactions, report to your prescriber or any other healthcare provider.

Female Viagra drug characteristics

The medicinal effect of Female Viagra (sildenafil citrate) is achieved thanks to inhibition of the enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5 that is mainly released in the genitalia. When PDE5 is blocked, the normal blood flow is restored in the vaginal tissues thanks to the release of the precursor of nitric oxide (NO), cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). NO is a chemical that boosts vascular elasticity and promotes blood absorption by the vessels in the genital tissues, which further stimulates the work of Bartholin glands responsible for lubrication during sexual arousal. Sexual arousal is also boosted thanks to the improved blood circulation in the small pelvis, and this is the main difference in the pharmacodynamics of Female Viagra and the classical Viagra for men.

Dosing and drug uses

A pill of Female Viagra contains sildenafil citrate 100mg; it is the maximal recommended dose. Your prescriber might start you on ½ of the tablet in the initial stages of the therapy to make sure that you display a good tolerance of the drug. Lower doses of Female Viagra are required in women with decreased clearance rate and individuals over the age of 65.

In case your doctor advises you against any physical activities based on the cardiovascular findings, note that sexual activity is also off limits to you, hence you should abstain from the use of Female Viagra.

Drugs Female Viagra can interact with

Sildenafil contained in Female Viagra expands blood vessels and thus lowers the blood pressure; it therefore cannot be taken in combination with other drugs featuring a hypotensive characteristic. Those are the drugs prescribed against angina (chest pain), high blood pressure (alpha-blockers, organic nitrites) and other substances with vasoactive characteristics. Alcohol belongs to the same class of substances; while its intake does not affect Female Viagra health outcomes, it increases the hypotensive action of sildenafil, therefore be sure to limit the alcohol consumption to 3 units when taking the drug.

Female Viagra cannot be taken with drugs against fungal infections, HIV/AIDS, grapefruit and grapefruit juice, and other drugs / substances inhibiting CYP3A4.

Note on a safe use

Do not take Female Viagra if your doctor’s recommendations to avoid physical activity include sex. Be cautious if you have known allergies towards drugs; start with the minimal dose before you learn how your body tolerates sildenafil. Be advised that Female Viagra contains lactose as one of its excipients.

Kidney and liver insufficiencies are grounds to ask your prescriber revise the dose of Female Viagra.
