Fildena 100mg (Sildenafil)Fortune Healthcare Pvt. Ltd.
Fildena 100 is an oral tablet that contains 100mg of the active ingredient Sildenafil Citrate.
Fildena 100 tablet is used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men. Erectile dysfunction is a medical condition where men are unable to produce or maintain an erection. Along with sexual stimulation, Fildena helps fill the penis with blood by relaxing the muscles in blood vessels and increasing blood flow to the penis which then leads to an erection. Note that this drug will not produce an erection without the help of sexual stimulation.
Fildena is manufactured by Fortune Healthcare Pvt. Ltd.
An initial dose of 50mg Fildena is recommended, taken orally about an hour prior to sexual activity. The dose may be adjusted, either lowered to 25mg or increased to 100mg, depending on its efficacy and tolerability for every individual.
The maximum dose of Fildena is 100mg per day.
Fildena may be taken with or without food. But if taken with food, especially with foods high in fat, the onset of efficacy may be delayed.
Men should always begin with a lower dose of Fildena if:
- Age is older than 65

This medication is recommended to be taken by men aged 18 above with erectile dysfunction and not for children and women. This medication is not an aphrodisiac and does not protect individuals from sexually transmitted diseases.
