What is Viagra With Duloxetine?
The combination of Viagra and duloxetine is a powerful medicine to address the issue of male impotency. It is prescribed to treat erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. It is sometimes prescribed for pulmonary arterial hypertension.
Class and Mechanism of Action
Viagra contains Sildenafil as an active ingredient. It 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. Duloxetine is a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. It inhibits serotonin reuptake, thereby increasing its amount exponentially in the blood. It’s action at the postsynaptic cleft increases thereby preventing premature ejaculation.
