WHAT IS THIS MEDICATION
Cenforce 100mg is a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor medication which
is primarily used to treat impotence in adult men suffering from erectile
dysfunction. It is also used for the treatment of pulmonary hypertension. Erectile
dysfunction is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection long enough to
perform sexual intercourse. Phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) enzymes, which are
present in the penis, cause the erection of the penis. Any stage of the
erection process can experience issues that result in ED.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
