Sildenafil (Pfizer) 25mg Quad Pack 4 x 8 Tablets is a treatment for adult men suffering from erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence. This means that the man cannot achieve, or keep a hard, erect penis suitable for sexual activity.
This medicine contains the active substance sildenafil (as citrate), which belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. What it does is helping the blood vessels in the penis relax, allowing blood to flow into the penis when sexually excited. Therefore, the pills will help you achieve an erection only if you are sexually aroused.
