Aurogra is a generic medication used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. It contains the active ingredient Sildenafil Citrate, which belongs to a class of drugs called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. Aurogra works by increasing blood flow to the penis, allowing for a firm and long-lasting erection. It is manufactured by Aurochem Pharmaceuticals and is available in tablet form.
Aurogra is contraindicated in the following situations:
- Hypersensitivity to Sildenafil Citrate or any other component of the medication
- Taking medications containing nitrates, such as nitroglycerin, isosorbide dinitrate, or isosorbide mononitrate
- Severe liver or kidney disease
- History of heart attack, stroke, or life-threatening arrhythmia within the past 6 months
- Uncontrolled high blood pressure
Managing Side Effects
Common side effects of Aurogra may include:
- Facial flushing
- Nasal congestion
If these side effects persist or become bothersome, it is advised to consult a healthcare professional. Additionally, rare but serious side effects such as priapism (prolonged erection lasting more than 4 hours) or sudden vision loss may occur. In such cases, immediate medical attention should be sought.
Aurogra should be taken as directed by a healthcare professional. Typically, it is advised to take a single tablet approximately 1 hour before sexual activity. The tablet should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. Aurogra may be taken with or without food, although consuming a high-fat meal before taking the medication may delay its onset of action.
If a dose of Aurogra is missed, it should be taken as soon as remembered. However, if it is nearly time for the next scheduled dose, the missed dose should be skipped and the regular dosing schedule resumed. Doubling the dose to make up for a missed one is not recommended.
An overdose of Aurogra can increase the risk of experiencing serious side effects. If an overdose is suspected, immediate medical attention should be sought. Symptoms of an overdose may include severe dizziness, fainting, or prolonged and painful erections.
Aurogra should not be taken concomitantly with the following medications:
- Nitrates such as nitroglycerin
- Alpha-blockers like doxazosin or tamsulosin
- HIV protease inhibitors
- Antifungal medications
These medications can interact with Aurogra and cause a significant decrease in blood pressure, leading to dizziness, fainting, or even a heart attack or stroke. It is important to inform a healthcare professional about all current medications, including over-the-counter drugs and herbal supplements, before starting treatment with Aurogra.
