What is Nipatra and how does it work?
Nipatra contains the active ingredient Sildenafil. Sildenafil belongs to a group of medications known as phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5). Nipatra helps relax the blood vessels in your penis, which, in the presence of sexual stimulation, allows blood to flow into your penis and help with achieving or maintaining your erection.
How do I take Nipatra?
The recommended starting dose of Nipatra is 50mg. Nipatra should be taken 1 hour before intended sexual activity. You should chew one whole tablet. Taking Nipatra after food will slow down its absorption and mean it takes longer to work. You cannot take more than 1 tablet of Nipatra in a 24 hour period.
How long does it take to work?
Nipatra takes about 30 to 60 minutes to work. It will only work in the presence of sexual stimulation.
How long does Nipatra last?
Nipatra stays in the body for approximately 4 hours.
How is Nipatra different from other ED medication?
Unlike other ED medicines available on the market, Nipatra is a chewable tablet.
Can I buy Nipatra over the counter?
No. You can only buy Nipatra from some UK pharmacies after a consultation with the pharmacist. However, not all pharmacists and pharmacies offer this service.
