Erectile dysfunction is where a man could not achieve or maintain an erection for sexual intercourse. It is caused by poor blood flow to the penis due to some illnesses, medications, too much alcohol intake or tiredness. It can happen to men at any age. While getting older play a role in this condition, it is however not a cause of erectile dysfunction – it will only increase the risk of having the condition. Erectile dysfunction only needs treatment if it is an on-going problem.
Vega Extra 120 is a tablet containing 120mg of Sildenafil citrate used for treating erectile dysfunction in men. Following sexual stimulation, it works in helping men get and maintain an erection by causing blood vessels to widen or relax in order to have enough blood flow to the penis.
Vega Extra 120 is manufactured by HAB Pharmaceuticals and Research Ltd.
