Caverta is a generic product of sildenafil Citrate. Caverta is manufactured by Ranbaxy Laboratories Limited (A division of Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.). Caverta is used in treating erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men, regardless the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Caverta can help many men who have erectile dysfunction get and keep an erection when they become sexually excited (stimulated) but Caverta cannot cure impotence or erectile dysfunction. Caverta is the citrate salt of sildenafil, a selective inhibitor of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cgmp)-specific phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5).
Caverta tablets are available in strengths of 25 mg, 50 mg and 100 mg and each caverta tablets contains 25 mg, 50 mg or 100 mg of sildenafil citrate as the active ingredient. Caverta does not stimulate sexual arousal and erection but enhances penis erection when one becomes sexually stimulated. Sildenafil is available in various forms like tablets, chewable tablets, effervescent tablets or oral jelly.
How Caverta Works
Caverta work to enhance erection of the penis involves the release of nitric oxide (NO) in the corpus cavernosum during sexual stimulation. The nitric oxide (NO) released then activates the enzyme guanylate cyclase, which results in increased levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cgmp), producing smooth muscle relaxation in the corpus cavernosum and allowing inflow of blood. sildenafil has no direct relaxant effect on isolated human corpus cavernosum but enhances the effect of nitric oxide (NO) by inhibiting phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5), which is responsible for degradation of cgmp in the corpus cavernosum. When sexual stimulation causes local release of nitric oxide (NO), inhibition of PDE5 by sildenafil causes increased levels of cgmp in the corpus cavernosum, resulting in smooth muscle relaxation and inflow of blood to the corpus cavernosum. That is to say that sildenafil citrate widens the blood vessels; this lowers the blood pressure and increases blood flow to the penis which helps the penis become erect during sexual intercourse.
Caverta dosage and Administration
The recommended dose for Caverta is 50 mg daily. Caverta should be taken with a full glass of water, approximately 1 hour before sexual activity. However, Caverta may be taken anywhere from 0.5 hours to 4 hours before sexual activity. Based on effectiveness and toleration, Caverta dose may be increased to a maximum recommended dose of Caverta 100 or decreased to Caverta 25 mg. The maximum recommended dosing frequency is once per day. Meanwhile, do not eat a high fat meal before taking Caverta tablet, Caverta may take a little longer to start working if taken after eating a high fat meal.
Caverta precautions and Side Effects
The safety of Caverta is unknown in patients with bleeding disorders and patients with active peptic ulceration. Caverta should be used with caution in patients with anatomical deformation of the penis (such as angulation, cavernosal fibrosis or Peyronie’s disease), or in patients who have conditions which may predispose them to priapism (such as sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia). The safety and efficacy of combinations of Caverta with other treatments for erectile dysfunction have not been studied. Therefore, the use of such combinations is not recommended.
