About drug salt
It was the first drug of this category invented to cure male impotence problem. It works by deactivating an enzyme present in our body called PDE5 or phosphodiesterase - 5.

- Pulmonary Hypertension
How a drug works
As mentioned above, Kamagra contains sildenafil citrate salt which is responsible for men getting an erection. To see how this drug works, let's first understand the anatomy of the male erection. A male erection is achieved when a chemical called NO (nitrous oxide) is produced in the male penis, which internally activates an enzyme called "guanylate cyclase". This guanylate cyclase converts a naturally occurring chemical in the body called GTP into C-GMP and this C-GMP is responsible for erection. Sildenafil deactivates the enzyme PDE-5, which is responsible for breaking down GMP. In simpler terms, Sildenafil breaks down the enzyme (PDE-5) responsible for reducing the erectile effects of another enzyme (C-Gmp).
Sildenafil is associated with some major and minor side effects:
The main side effects are: -
- Prolonged and painful erection

For any of the above indications, consult the doctor immediately and limit the prescribed dosage.

Missed Dose: This drug is used as needed, so missing a dose is less likely to cause erectile dysfunction. However, if you miss a dose when treating pulmonary arterial hypertension, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. The dose can be skipped if it is almost time for the next scheduled dose. Do not double your dose to make up for the missed dose.
