What is Cenforce?
Cenforce 100 mg soft tab is a past acting male erection pill. It is detectable in plasma as soon as 10 minutes after consumption. Like Viagra, it is prescribed for the problems of sexual dysfunction.
Class and Mechanism of Action
Cenforce soft tabs contain Sildenafil citrate which is a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor. Its PDE5 inhibiting action releases more of cGMP in the Corpus Cavernosum of a penis. An increased level of cGMP relaxes the smooth muscles and improves blood flow. It also stimulates the dopamine receptors in the brain. It causes dilation of the pelvic arteries and relaxation of penile smooth muscles. The improved flood flow results in an effective erection which can last up to 4 hours.
