Helleva (Lodenafil Carbonate) is a PDE5 inhibitor indicated for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. It works by helping to improve the flow of blood into the penis so as to help achieve and maintain an erection. Erectile dysfunction is a common condition affecting many men, often leading to distress and other emotional issues. This medicine aims to treat the symptoms by inhibiting the action of phosphodieterase type 5.
Phosphodiesterase type 5 is a chemical present in the body which breaks down another substance called cyclic GMP (another chemical that plays a key role in the process in which an erection occurs). Because the breakdown of cyclic GMP is prevented, it is possible for the blood vessels in the penis to remain dilated for a longer period of time, allowing for a better flow of blood into the penis. This helps the patient maintain an erection.
Dosage and Administration
Helleva (Lodenafil Carbonate) comes in the form of 80mg tablets which are taken by mouth. If you have been diagnosed with erectile dysfunction by your doctor, and treatment with this medicine has been recommended, it will be necessary to ensure that you comply with the dosage instructions given by the doctor. Adult men are sometimes directed to administer 1 tablet roughly 20 to 30 minutes before intercourse. Do not take more than this, even if it does not work.
