Filagra is the generic version of the original Viagra medication which contains the active ingredient Sildenafil Citrate. Filagra is prescribed for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. It is also indicated for pulmonary arterial hypertension. This medication relaxes muscles in the penis and increases blood flow in it, thereby helping men to achieve and maintain an erection. Sildenafil Citrate does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases. Filagra is contraindicated in patients taking another medicine to treat impotence or using a nitrate drug for chest pain or heart problems.
This medicine should not be taken by women and children as well as in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any component of the tablet. Usually drug interactions occur when it is taken with another drug or with food. Before you take a medication for a particular ailment, you should inform the health expert about intake of any other medications including non-prescription medications, over-the-counter medicines that may increase the effect of Filagra, and dietary supplements like vitamins, minerals and herbal, so that the doctor can warn you of any possible drug interactions. Like other medicines, Filagra can cause some side effects. If they do occur, the side effects of Filagra are most likely to be minor and temporary. However, some may be serious and may require the individual to inform the doctor or visit the nearest hospital immediately. It is pertinent to note that side effects of Filagra cannot be anticipated. If any side effects of Filagra develop or change in intensity, the doctor should be informed as soon as possible. Filagra can cause side effects such as back pain, upset stomach, stuffy nose, headache, blurred vision, and flushing in your face, neck, or chest. This is not a complete list of all side effects. Do concur with your doctor and follow his directions completely when you are taking Filagra. Before you start taking Sildenafil, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies.
Aged people may be more sensitive to the side effects of the drug.
Also, tell your prescriber or health care professional if you are a frequent user of drinks containing caffeine or alcohol, if you smoke, or if you use illegal drugs. These may affect the way your medicine works.
