The way of action is next – the drug helps to produce Nitric Oxide (NO). It is natural component that products during the physical activity in blood vessels. In such way controls the capacity of blood vessels. Bigger amount of NO means wider vessel, less amount of NO makes vessel narrow.
Adding the stimulator of production NO to the blood we artificially make vessels wider and help to train practically without any fatigue – the oxygenation is on the high level.
Positive property of this mechanism is in the better oxygenation of blood. It has positive influence to the heart, decreasing the load.

An overdose of sildenafil may be accompanied by rare cases of vision loss. According to the results of studies, the drug at a microscopic level damages retinal cells responsible for color perception. As scientists have proved, the picture of damage was similar to that observed with genetic retinal disorders (eg, color blindness). Also, according to studies, it has been shown that people with genetic disorders of the retina are at higher risk for vision problems after an overdose of sildenafil. In addition, even the recommended dose of sildenafil can cause fogging, increased photosensitivity and changes in color vision, with a side effect lasting no more than one day. However, the case described in a report published in the journal Retinal Cases shows that loss of color vision and other disorders can last up to a year or more.
