    Filitra (which contains vardenafil) works to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). When a man is sexually stimulated, the release of NO from nerve endings and endothelial cells in the erectile tissue of the penis triggers a cascade of events that lead to the relaxation of smooth muscle cells in the blood vessels of the penis. This relaxation allows these blood vessels to dilate, increasing blood flow into the penis and resulting in an erection. Filitra belongs to a class of medications called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. These drugs work by inhibiting the enzyme PDE5, which is responsible for breaking down cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) in the smooth muscle cells of the penis. cGMP is a molecule that plays a key role in the relaxation of smooth muscle cells and the dilation of blood vessels in the penis. By inhibiting PDE5, Filitra helps to prolong the action of cGMP, leading to increased relaxation of smooth muscle cells and enhanced blood flow into the penis, which ultimately results in an erection. Nitric oxide is essential in this process because it initiates the production of cGMP, which Filitra helps to preserve by inhibiting its breakdown. Therefore, nitric oxide acts as a key mediator in the mechanism by which Filitra facilitates erectile function.
