Sildex SX (Generic Viagra, Sildenafil Citrate) is a PDE-5 (phosphodiesterase type 5) enzyme inhibitor and is manufactured by Sciroxx. Sildex stops the activity of the enzyme which allows the muscles of the blood vessels of the penis to relax creating an increased flow of blood. When combined with physical or psychological sexual stimulation, Sildex helps men to achieve and maintain an erection.
Warnings and Precautions
It is important to get a physical examination before taking Sildex. Tell your doctor your complete medical history and all of the medications you are taking; this includes prescription, over-the-counter, vitamins, and herbal remedies. Certain drugs can have an adverse reaction when combined with Sildex. Sildex should not be taken if you have or are:
allergic to Sildenafil Citrate or any of its ingredients
chronic bladder infections
Sildex may cause dizziness; do not drive or operate machinery until you know how Sildex affects you. If you experience an erection that is painful or lasts for more than four hours, seek medical attention immediately. A prolonged erection can cause permanent damage to the penis.
