What is Cenforce 100?

  • October 22, 2023 10:44 PM PDT

    Cenforce 100 mg is a medication used to treat impotence in men. It works by boosting the flow of blood to the penile region of the body. This aids men in gaining and maintaining an erection. It's one of a class of drugs called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE 5) inhibitors. 


    Researchers accidentally discovered the ability of PDE 5 inhibitors to improve erectile dysfunction in men while examining its potential use for hypertension and angina.


    You can take it on an empty stomach or with a meal. You should take this medicine as prescribed by your doctor. Take it approximately an hour before any sexual activity. Although working time varies from person to person, it usually takes between 30 and 1 hour. 


    Once you are sexually stimulated, this drug will assist you in acquiring an erection. However, this medicine will not help without any sexual stimulation. Do not take this drug more than once a day. If you are using ED tablets for the first time, start with a lower dose, such as  25 mg or 50 mg, and gradually increase to 100 mg of Cenforce.


    Cenforce 100 pills are not for females. Taking it alongside nitrate-based medicines can be harmful (often given for chest pain or angina). Avoid taking this medicine if you have serious heart or liver issues, recently had a stroke or heart attack, or have hypotension (low blood pressure). Avoid driving after taking this medicine, as this medicine can make you dizzy. While taking this medicine, avoid consuming alcohol since it raises the risk of adverse effects.


    What is the use of Cenforce 100 mg?

    This medicine is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence). Erectile dysfunction is a sexual dysfunction in men who cannot gain an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. 


    This drug is a PDE 5 inhibitor that blocks PDE 5 enzymes that cause the penis to go flaccid. It relaxes the blood vessels, improving the blood flow to the penile region.


    How does Cenforce 100 mg work?

    Cenforce 100 mg blue pill has an active compound called Sildenafil Citrate. Sildenafil treats erectile dysfunction by inhibiting the activity of phosphodiesterase type-5, a substance that is naturally present in the penis. 


    While engaging in sexual activity, Sildenafil Citrate assists in widening (relaxing) the blood vessels. Consequently, there is an increase in the volume of blood flowing through the penile area of the body. This mechanism assists men in getting and maintaining a solid erection.



    This medicine's dosage will vary depending on the patient. Follow your doctor's orders or label's instructions. Only the average dosages are included in the following information. If your dose differs, do not alter it unless your doctor instructs you to.


    For oral administration (tablets):


    Adults up to 65 years of age- Take this drug once a day, 1 hour before sexual intercourse, as a single dosage. The drug can also be administered 30 minutes to 4 hours before sexual activity. If necessary, your doctor may change your dosage by increasing or decreasing the strength of the medicine.

    Adults above 65 years of age- Usually, a smaller dose is given to patients above 65 once a day, 1 hour before sexual intercourse. Your doctor may advise you to take Cenforce 100 mg or a weaker version of this medicine based on your health conditions. The drug can also be administered 30 minutes to 4 hours before sexual activity. If necessary, your doctor may alter your dosage.

    It is not suggested for children or teens to use. 


    If you suspect that you might need a more potent dose of Cenforce, you can increase your dose to 120 mg, 130 mg, 150 mg, or 200 mg. However, thoroughly consult with your doctor before increasing the strength of the medicine. 


    Food and beverage interactions:

    Alcohol - Cenforce 100 mg can potentially lower your blood pressure, and alcohol can enhance that effect. Taking alcohol with Sildenafil can be problematic for you, increasing the side effects. Therefore, while taking this medicine, avoid alcohol at all costs. 

    Grapefruit - If you're using Sildenafil, you should avoid eating or drinking excessive grapefruits or grapefruit juice daily. Grapefruit might raise the levels of sildenafil citrate in your body, causing the medicine to take longer to act. Do not change the quantity of grapefruit products in your diet without consulting your doctor beforehand.
