What is Zhewitra?
Zhewitra is recommended for erectile dysfunction and impotency in males. It is helpful when there is a failure of maintaining an erection for the entire sexual act or if there is no erection at all. It is a potent drug and should not be taken more than the prescription. It will act only in the presence of sexual stimulation.
Class and Mechanism of Action
Zhewitra contains Vardenafil as the active ingredient. It is a PDE5 inhibitor. By inhibiting PDE5, it releases more of cGMP in the Corpus Cavernosum of a penis. An increased level of cGMP relaxes the smooth muscles and improves blood flow. The improved flood flow results in an effective erection that can last up to hours.
