How Does Avanafil (Generic Stendra) Work?
Avanafil (Generic Stendra) works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax. This increases the blood flow into your penis, helping it stay hard and erect when you get sexually excited.
Avana does not cure erectile dysfunction (ED). It is important to note that Generic Avanafil only works if you are sexually stimulated. You and your partner will still need to use foreplay to get ready for sex -just as you would if you were not taking a medicine to help you.
Generic Avanafil Tablets (Avana) and Alcohol
Patients should be informed that both alcohol and PDE5 inhibitors including Generic Avanafil act as vasodilators. When vasodilators are taken in combination, blood-pressure-lowering effects of each individual compound may be increased.
Therefore, doctors must inform patients that substantial consumption of alcohol (e.g., greater than 3 units) in combination with Avana may increase the potential for orthostatic signs and symptoms, including increase in heart rate, decrease in standing blood pressure, dizziness, and headache
Single doses up to 800 mg of Avanafil tablets have been administered to healthy subjects, and multiple doses up to 300 mg have been given to patients.
In cases of overdose, standard supportive measures should be taken as required. Renal dialysis is not expected to accelerate clearance because Avanafil is highly bound to plasma proteins and is not significantly eliminated in the urine.
Avana Tablets Contraindications
Avana tablets are contraindicated in patients with a hypersensitivity to Avanafil or any inactive ingredient present in Avana tablets.
Administration of Avana to patients using any form of organic nitrate is contraindicated. Administration of Avana tablets along with guanylate cyclase (GC) stimulators, such as riociguat are also contraindicated.
