  • NOM(S) DE MARCA COMUNS - Revatio

USOS: Sildenafil is used to treat high blood pressure in the lungs (pulmonary hypertension). It works by relaxing and widening the blood vessels in your lungs which allows the blood to flow more easily. Decreasing high blood pressure in the lungs allows your heart and lungs to work better and improves your ability to exercise.

This medication is not recommended for use in children. Discuss the risks and benefits of this medication with the doctor.

Sildenafil can cause a serious drop in your blood pressure when used with nitrates. A serious drop in blood pressure can lead to dizziness, fainting, and rarely heart attack or stroke. Do not use sildenafil with any of the following:

  • certain drugs used to treat chest pain/angina (nitrates such as nitroglycerin, isosorbide)
  • recreational drugs called “poppers” containing amyl nitrate, amyl nitrite, or butyl nitrite.

If you are also taking an alpha blocker medication (such as doxazosin, tamsulosin) to treat an enlarged prostate/BPH or high blood pressure, your blood pressure may get too low which can lead to dizziness or fainting. Your doctor may adjust your medications to minimize your risk of low blood pressure.

Other medications can affect the removal of sildenafil from your body, which may affect how sildenafil works. Examples include:

  • azole antifungals (such as itraconazole, ketoconazole)
  • macrolide antibiotics (such as clarithromycin, erythromycin)
  • HIV protease inhibitors (such as ritonavir, saquinavir)
  • hepatitis C virus protease inhibitors (such as boceprevir, telaprevir)
  • cobicistat
  • mifepristone
  • rifampin, among others

Do not take this medication with any other product that contains sildenafil or other similar medications for erectile dysfunction-ED or pulmonary hypertension (such as tadalafil, vardenafil).
