    Fildena CT 100 is a medication containing sildenafil citrate, a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor, used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. When taken, sildenafil citrate works primarily in the erectile tissue of the penis to improve erectile function. Here’s how it works:

    Relaxation of Smooth Muscle: In the erectile tissue of the penis, there are smooth muscle cells lining the blood vessels known as the corpus cavernosum. During sexual arousal, nerve signals trigger the release of nitric oxide (NO) in the erectile tissue. Nitric oxide then activates an enzyme called guanylate cyclase, leading to an increase in cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) levels.

    Increased Blood Flow: Elevated levels of cGMP cause the smooth muscle cells in the blood vessels of the corpus cavernosum to relax, allowing the blood vessels to dilate (widen). This relaxation and dilation facilitate increased blood flow into the penis, resulting in an erection.

    Inhibition of PDE5: Sildenafil citrate, the active ingredient in Fildena CT 100 works by inhibiting the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5). PDE5 is responsible for breaking down cGMP, thus reducing its levels in the erectile tissue and leading to the relaxation of smooth muscle cells.

    Enhanced Erection: By inhibiting PDE5, sildenafil citrate prolongs the effects of NO-induced cGMP in the erectile tissue, allowing for sustained relaxation of smooth muscle cells and increased blood flow into the penis. This leads to improved erectile function and the ability to achieve and maintain an erection sufficient for sexual activity.

    In summary, Fildena CT 100 acts primarily in the erectile tissue of the penis by inhibiting the enzyme PDE5, which enhances the effects of nitric oxide (NO), leading to increased blood flow and improved erectile function. It’s important to note that sexual arousal is still required for the medication to be effective, as sildenafil citrate alone does not cause an erection; it enhances the natural erectile response.
