Patients using Cobra (Sildenafil Citrate) regularly report successful intercourse and generally continue to use the treatment. The effective treatment time of Cobra (Sildenafil Citrate) is 4 – 6 hours, however many doctors report longer effective times.
The active ingredient of Cobra is Sildenafil Citrate. It belongs to the PDE-5 family of vasodilators. These drugs work by dilating the blood vessels in the body — particularly around the genital area. This allows stronger blood flow to enable an erection to take place. Sildenafil Citrate is now one of the standard treatments for erectile dysfunction.
Cobra (Sildenafil Citrate) is not an aphrodisiac and stimulation will be required to develop an erection
The safe indicated dose of Cobra (Sildenafil Citrate) within a 24 hour period is 120mg (1 tablet). This medicine will become effective within 30 to 60 minutes. Effective treatment time is 4 – 6 hours. Always take this medicine with a large glass of water.
Avoid large or fatty meals close to when you intend to take the medicine. Additionally, avoid the regular consumption of large amounts of grapefruits and grapefruit juice. Grapefruit can raise the levels of Sildenafil Citrate in your body and delay the time it takes for the medication to work.
Alcohol will also reduce the effectiveness of this medicine. Sildenafil Citrate can lower blood pressure, and combining it with alcohol may further increase this effect. You may be more likely to experience symptoms such as dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, flushing, headache, and heart palpitations. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with Sildenafil Citrate, and use caution when getting up from a sitting or lying position.
