In New Zealand, sildenafil is categorized as a no-prescription drug.

Drug characteristics

Viagra Oral Jelly belongs to the class of drugs called PDE5 inhibitors. PDE5 stands for phosphodiesterase type 5, which is an enzyme that interferes with the production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). Inhibition of PDE5 boosts the release of cGMP and consecutively, the release of nitric oxide (NO), the substance penile blood circulation is dependent on. Once the blood circulation in the penis is restored, so is the entire erectile mechanism.

How to choose the right dose

Viagra Oral Jelly is available in a single dose of 100mg. Be advised that this is the maximal recommended dose of sildenafil, and it should not be taken by individuals with kidney or liver problems. If you develop side effects that are bothersome or would not go away and an adjustment in dosing is recommended, you should opt for an analogous product containing sildenafil citrate, as halving the content of a sachet containing Viagra Oral Jelly does not guarantee a dosing precision.
