Description of the drug Cenforce-FM
Cenforce-FM is one of tablets knows as the “female Viagra”. It contains 100mg of the active ingredient Sildenafil citrate. Sildenafil citrate helps treat erectile dysfunction in men but this drug was specifically formulated as a sexual enhancer to provide sexual satisfaction for women and to help with problems of women called the Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (FSAD).
Some studies suggest that this drug helps increase sexual desire in women during sexual activity. It works by also increasing blood flow to a woman’s genitals, making the clitoris and surrounding area of the vagina sensitive to stimulation. Although the exact mechanism on how it enhances sexual desire is not yet established. Some studies also suggest that this drug also increases vaginal wetness in post-menopausal women.
One tablet of Cenforce-FM must be taken orally, as needed, 1 hour prior to sexual activity. The effect of this drug may start in about 45 minutes after taking it, and the effect may last for about 4 to 6 hours.
The dose may be adjusted, either decreased to 25mg or increased to 100mg, depending on efficacy and tolerability per individual. The maximum dose of Cenforce-FM is 100mg per day. It is important to note not to exceed the maximum daily dose. Consult a healthcare provider prior to making dose adjustments.
Cenforce-FM may be taken with or without food, but the effect might take longer if taken with food.
