INTIMAX-100 offered by us is also known as Sildenafil Citrate that enables many men with erectile dysfunction (ED) to respond to sexual stimulation. But it is not a hormone or aphrodisiac, it only works when a man is sexually stimulated. It does not directly cause penile erections but affects response to sexual stimulation. The drug acts by enhancing smooth muscle relaxant effects of nitric oxide, which is a chemical that is normally released in response to sexual stimulation. This smooth allows increased blood flow into certain areas of penis that leads to an erection.
INTIMAX-100 film-coated tablets are blue, with rounded-diamond shape. It works by helping to relax blood vessels in the penis, thus allowing blood to flow into penis when a person gets sexually excited.

Pack: Strip of 4 Tablets
Drug Class & Mechanism : INTIMAX-100 is a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor and works by helping blood flow into penis to achieve & maintain erection during sexual stimulation.
How INTIMAX-100 Works :
Part of physiological process of erection involves release of nitric oxide (NO) in corpus cavernosum
This then activates enzyme guanylate cyclase that results in increased levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (CGMP), which leads to smooth relaxation in corpus cavernosum, thus resulting in increased inflow of blood & erection
Sildenafil Citrate is potent & selective inhibitor of cGMP specific phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) that is responsible for degradation of cGMP in corpus cavernosum
This means that with Sildenafil Citrate of Intimax-100, normal sexual stimulation leads to increased levels of CGMP in corpus cavernosum that leads to better erections
Without sexual stimulation & no activation of NO/cGMP system, sildenafil citrate does not cause an erection
Sildenafil citrate is metabolised by hepatic enzymes & excreted by both liver and kidneys
