Udenafil is used to treat erectile dysfunction (inability to achieve erection) in men.
How it works
Udenafil is a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5, an enzyme that normally degrades nitric oxide (NO) in the body). Udenafil acts by blocking the action of PDE5 enzyme, and increasing the blood levels of NO, which in turn increases the inflow of blood in penis, causing erection.
