Kamagra Gold 100mg (Sildenafil)
Kamagra is an oral tablet that contains 100mg of the active ingredient
Sildenafil citrate which is used to help men that are unable to get and
maintain erections. This tablet also contains the following inactive
ingredients: microcrystalline cellulose, calcium hydrogen phosphate,
croscarmellose sodium, magnesium stearate, hypromellose, titanium
dioxide, lactose, triacetin, and indigo carmine aluminum lake.
Erectile dysfunction is due to inadequate blood flow to the penis. Kamagra helps by increasing the blood flow as a result of sexual stimulation. Nitric oxide is released in the erectile tissues of the penis through sexual stimulation. This chemical then activates an enzyme called guanylate cyclase which in turn increases levels of another chemical called cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) which is responsible for blood vessel relaxation, allowing more blood flow to erectile tissues to produce an erection. An enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) is also present but breaks down cGMP thus leading to loss of erection due to blood flow prevention. Kamagra specifically inhibits the action of PDE5 to allow the activation of cGMP to produce an erection.
Kamagra 100mg is manufactured by Ajanta Pharma
One tablet of 100mg Kamagra is taken orally with or without food, about an hour before sexual activity. If Kamagra is taken with food, its effect might take longer. Kamagra’s effect may be achieved within 30 minutes after taking the medication and may last about 4 hours provided there is sexual stimulation. Note that this medication will not work without any sexual stimulation. The maximum dose of Kamagra 100mg is one tablet per day on an as needed basis only.

Warnings and Precautions
Erectile dysfunction may be an effect of other medical conditions and medications. Prior to taking Kamagra, it is best to check with a healthcare provider if one is healthy enough to take the medication because it may aggravate some medical conditions. For instance, Kamagra is not advisable to patients with angina because sexual activity may precipitate angina.
Advise the doctor for the following medical conditions aside from those listed above:
- Blood problems
- Deformed penis or Peyronie’s disease
- Stomach ulcers
- Other medications
- History of vision loss
Kamagra can also interfere with other medications, as it can lower blood pressure, hence the medication can potentiate the hypotensive effects of alpha-blockers and other hypotensive drugs.
Kamagra must not be taken with other treatments and instruments that help produce erections.
Kamagra and Alcohol
Taking Kamagra with alcohol may cause undesirable effects as both can cause lowering of blood pressure.
