Tác dụng
Description: Vardenafil is a potent phosphodiesterase inhibitor with the greatest selectivity for PDE type 5, which is responsible for the metabolism of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) in the smooth muscle. Inhibition of PDE type 5 causes smooth muscle relaxation and increased blood flow into the corpus cavernosum of the penis during sexual stimulation, thereby producing an erection.
Onset: Approx 60 minutes.
Absorption: Rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Food, particularly high-fat meal, decreases rate of absorption. Bioavailability: Approx 15%. Time to peak plasma concentration: 0.5-2 hours.
Distribution: Widely distributed in the tissues. Volume of distribution: 208 L. Detected in the semen. Plasma protein binding: Approx 95% (parent drug and metabolite).
Metabolism: Metabolised in the liver primarily by CYP3A4 as well as CYP3A5 and CYP2C via desethylation into active metabolite.
Excretion: Mainly via faeces (approx 91-95%, as metabolites); urine (approx 2-6%). Terminal half-life: Approx 4-6 hours.
