    Silditop 100 contains sildenafil citrate, which is primarily used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). Like any medication, sildenafil can interact with other drugs, potentially causing adverse effects or altering their effectiveness. Here are some common interactions to be aware of:

    Nitrates: Taking sildenafil with nitrates, often prescribed for chest pain (angina), can cause a dangerous drop in blood pressure. This combination can lead to fainting, dizziness, or even a heart attack.

    Alpha-blockers: When taken with alpha-blockers used to treat high blood pressure or prostate enlargement, sildenafil can also cause a significant drop in blood pressure. The combination can lead to dizziness, fainting, or even a stroke.

    Antifungal medications: Silditop 100antifungal medications, particularly azole antifungals like ketoconazole or itraconazole, can increase sildenafil levels in the blood. This might increase the risk of sildenafil’s side effects.

    Antibiotics: Certain antibiotics like erythromycin can also increase sildenafil levels in the blood, potentially increasing the risk of side effects.

    HIV medications: Protease inhibitors, used to treat HIV/AIDS, can increase sildenafil levels in the blood, increasing the risk of side effects.

    Other ED medications: Combining sildenafil with other ED medications like tadalafil or vardenafil can increase the risk of side effects and complications.

    Riociguat: Taking sildenafil with riociguat, used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension, can cause a significant drop in blood pressure.

    Grapefruit juice: Grapefruit juice can increase sildenafil levels in the blood, increasing the risk of side effects. It’s best to avoid grapefruit juice while taking sildenafil.

    These are just some potential interactions. Always inform your doctor about all medications, supplements, and herbal products you’re taking before starting sildenafil or any new medication. Your doctor can help manage potential interactions and adjust your treatment plan accordingly.
