Supra (Sildenafil) is a therapeutic drug for erectile dysfunction. It acts by selectively inhibiting phosphodiesterase

type 5 (PDE5), resulting in smooth muscle relaxation and inflow of blood to the penis. Sildenafil is rapidly absorbed

and it reaches the maximum plasma concentrations within 30 - 120 min. (average 60 minutes) after oral dosing in the

fasted state. The absorption is reduced when taken with a high fat meal. It is about 96 % bound to plasma proteins. It

is metabolized by CYP3A4 and CYP2C9 hepatic microsomal isoenzymes to an N-desmethyl active metabolite.

Excretion is 80% in the feces and 13% in the urine. The elimination half-life of both Sildenafil and its metabolites are

4 hours.


Supra is indicated for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.


- Adults : The recommended dose is 50mg taken once daily approximately one hour before sexual activity. The dose

may be reduced to 25 mg but should not exceed 100 mg according to efficacy and toleration .

Note : The tablet should be chewed before swallowed in case of Supra F&S chewable tablet.

- Elderly people( > 65 years): A starting dose of 25mg should be considered due to reduction of Sildenafil clearance.

- Patients with impaired hepatic function or impaired renal function (creatinine clearance < 30 ml/min):

Dose of 25 mg should be considered.

assistance to avoid the risk of penile tissue damage and permanent loss of potency .

Effects on ability to drive and use machines

Sildenafil may cause dizziness and can affect vision, so caution should be taken .


- Sildenafil clearance is reduced resulting in increased plasma concentration when co- administered with inhibitors

of cytochrome P- 450 (CYP) (such as cimetidine, erythromycin , ketoconazole and HIV protease as saquinavir and


- Single doses of antacids (magnesium hydroxide or aluminum hydroxide) do not affect the bioavailability of


- Co-administration of Sildenafil with alpha blockers may lead to hypotension.

- Rifampicin will decrease plasma levels of Sildenafil.
