Treatment of Erectile Dysfunction with Cobra 120 mg: A Patient's Guide

Men with erectile dysfunction (ED) might find that Cobra 120 mg helps them. It is a drug used to treat impotence and contains sildenafil citrate as the active ingredient. This medicine is also sold under its generic name. Because Sildenafil Citrate is a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor, it stops the enzyme from doing what it normally does.

Action Mechanism

Sildenafil Citrate, the active ingredient in Cobra 120 mg, makes it work. Sildenafil Citrate belongs to a group of drugs called phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5) and this group of drugs is responsible for the way the product works. In the body, cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) is broken down by an enzyme called PDE5, which is responsible for this process. cGMP is an essential part of the chain of events that leads to and maintains an erection.

When a man is sexually aroused, his brain sends a chemical message to the blood vessels in his penis. This chemical message is called nitric oxide (NO). Because of this, the blood vessels relax and become more voluminous, allowing more blood to flow to the penis. An erection occurs when more blood flows to the penis. This causes the spongy tissue in the penis to fill with blood, which is an erection.

When a sexual encounter is over, the body begins to break down cGMP. As a result, the blood vessels in the penis shrink to their normal size and the erection disappears. The PDE5 enzyme is responsible for how cGMP is broken down.

But Cobra 120mg works to stop the breakdown of cGMP by stopping the PDE5 enzyme from doing its job. This means that it suppresses the breakdown of cGMP. Because of this, cGMP can build up in the body, causing the smooth muscle of the penis to relax. This improves blood flow, which in turn causes an erection.
