Avana 50 (Avanafil) is a tablet form of Avanafil containing 50mg per tablet. It is prescribed to treat people with erectile dysfunction. The drug is known as a PDE5 (phosphodiesterase) inhibitor. It works by blocking PDES across cells of smooth muscles that line blood vessels that supply the penis with corpus cavernosum. Compared to other drugs prescribed for a similar purpose, this drug works faster because of its quicker passage through the body. The drug itself works by improving blood flow to specific body parts by relaxing associated muscles.
