Sildenafil is mainly known as an impotence treatment, and treats the inability to get or maintain an erection. Sildenafil is taken only before intercourse, with the understanding that its effects only last a few hours.

How do PDE5 inhibitors work?
Sildenafil does not cure impotence but only treats the symptoms.
Sildenafil is from a group of drugs called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. These drugs limit the action of phosphodiesterase enzymes, which break down cyclic guanosine monophosphate. It is a type of molecule that relaxes smooth muscle tissue in the body, such as those in the blood vessels that allow the penis to erect. Taking sildenafil improves blood flow by helping the arteries relax enough to more easily fill with blood.
Sildenafil is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, reaching a maximum concentration in about an hour for most users. Generic Viagra, like other PDE5 inhibitors, can cause a drop in blood pressure.
If you take medication to control blood pressure or are prone to low blood pressure, ask your doctor if it is safe to use sildenafil.
Sildenafil does not cause an erection by itself, and in most patients it does not increase libido. Sexual stimulation is still required. However, for most healthy people, sildenafil can make it easier to get an erection.
A 4-year study published in 2007 found that sildenafil is generally safe for long-term use. Other data pulled from clinical trials in 2016 indicated that sildenafil was effective without serious side effects regardless of age.
