Uses of Alphagra Superb
Alphagra Superb is used to achieve and maintain erections and delay premature ejaculation in men. Alphagra Superb contains the active substance Sildenafil (as citrate), which belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. It works by helping to relax the blood vessels in your penis, allowing blood to flow into your penis when you get sexually excited. This medicine will only help you to get an erection if you are sexually stimulated.
Alphagra Superb also contains another active substance called Dapoxetine Hydrochloride. Dapoxetine is is used for the treatment of premature ejaculation (PE) in adult men aged 18 to 64 years. Dapoxetine should only be prescribed to patients who meet all the following criteria: An intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT) of less than two minutes and Persistent or recurrent ejaculation with minimal sexual stimulation before, on, or shortly after penetration and before the patient wishes and Marked personal distress or interpersonal difficulty as a consequence of PE and Poor control over ejaculation as well a history of premature ejaculation in the majority of intercourse attempts over the prior 6 months.
Alphagra Superb tablets should be administered only as on-demand treatment before anticipated sexual activity.
Alphagra Superb Tablets - Mechanism of Action
The medical effect produced by Alphagra Superb tablets is due to it's two components: Sildenafil Citrate and Dapoxetine Hydrochloride.
Dapoxetine Hydrochloride is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) with a short duration of action. Dapoxetine leads to a delay of the ejaculation reflex and extends the IELT (intravaginal ejaculatory latency time).
Dapoxetine works by inhibiting the serotonin transporter, increasing serotonin's action at the post synaptic cleft, and as a consequence promoting ejaculatory delay.
Sildenafil Citrate is a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor, and it works by helping the blood flow into the penis to achieve and maintain an erection during sexual stimulation. Sildenafil enhances the effect of NO by inhibiting phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5), which is responsible for degradation of cGMP in the corpus cavernosum. Sildenafil has no direct relaxant effect on isolated human corpus cavernosum. When sexual stimulation causes local release of NO, inhibition of PDE5 by sildenafil causes increased levels of cGMP in the corpus cavernosum, resulting in smooth muscle relaxation and inflow of blood to the corpus cavernosum. Sildenafil at recommended doses has no effect in the absence of sexual stimulation.
Take Alphagra Superb tablets 1 to 3 hours before sexual activity. Do not take more than 1 tablet within 24 hours. i.e. At least 24 hours should pass before you take the next dose.
Drinking alcohol reduces the effect of Alphagra Superb.

- Before starting treatment, a careful medical examination including history of orthostatic events should be performed by the physician. An orthostatic test should be performed before initiating therapy (blood pressure and pulse rate, supine and standing). In case of a history of documented or suspected orthostatic reaction, treatment with Alphagra Superb should be avoided.
- Orthostatic hypotension has been reported in clinical trials. The prescribing doctor should counsel the patient in advance that if he experiences possibly prodromal symptoms, such as lightheadedness soon after standing, he should immediately lie down so his head is lower than the rest of his body or sit down with his head between his knees until the symptoms pass. The prescriber should also inform the patient not to rise quickly after prolonged lying or sitting.

Effects On Ability To Drive And Use Machines
Alphagra Superb (Sildenafil Citrate and Dapoxetine Hydrochloride Tablets) has minor or moderate influence on the ability to drive and use machines. Dizziness, disturbance in attention, syncope, blurred vision and somnolence have been reported in subjects receiving dapoxetine, a component of this medicine in clinical trials. Therefore, patients should be warned to avoid situations where injury could result, including driving or operating hazardous machinery.
Alphagra Superb (Sildenafil Citrate and Dapoxetine Hydrochloride Tablets) and Alcohol
Drinking alcohol decreases the blood which stays within your penis, which makes it harder for you to get an erection. In addition, alcohol and Sildenafil can interact. Sildenafil Citrate lowers your blood pressure, as does alcohol.
Combining alcohol with Dapoxetine may increase alcohol-related neurocognitive effects and may also enhance neurocardiogenic adverse events such as syncope, thereby increasing the risk of accidental injury; therefore, patients should be advised to avoid alcohol while taking Alphagra Superb tablets.
Alphagra Superb Overdosage
During studies with healthy volunteers of single doses up to 800 mg of Sildenafil Citrate, adverse effects were similar to those seen at lower doses but incidence rates and severities were increased. The overdose effects due to Sildenafil can cause prolonged erections, known as priapism, nausea, chest pains and irregular heartbeat. In case priapism is not treated within 24 hours the penis may become permanently damaged, leading to difficulties achieving an erection in future.
In general, symptoms of overdose with Dapoxetine Hydrochloride are somnolence, gastrointestinal disturbances such as nausea and vomiting, tachycardia, tremor, agitation and dizziness.
In the event of Alphagra Superb overdose, standard supportive measures should be adopted as required. Renal dialysis is not expected to accelerate clearance as Sildenafil is highly bound to plasma proteins and it is not eliminated in the urine. Due to high protein binding and large volume of distribution of Dapoxetine Hydrochloride, forced diuresis, dialysis, hemoperfusion and exchange transfusion are not likely to be of any benefit.
