Special Precautions And Related Warnings Of Avana 100 mg
The following warnings and precautions have to be kept in mind before administering Avanafil Tablets:
There is a potential for cardiac risk during sexual activity in patients with pre-existing cardiovascular disease. Therefore, treatments for ED, including Generic Stendra, should not be used in men for whom sexual activity is not advisable because of their underlying cardiovascular status.
Concomitant Use Of CYP3A4 Inhibitors:
Avana metabolism is principally mediated by the CYP450 isoform 3A4 (CYP3A4). Inhibitors of CYP3A4 may reduce Avana clearance and increase plasma concentrations of Avanafil.
For patients taking concomitant strong CYP3A4 inhibitors (including ketoconazole, ritonavir, atazanavir, clarithromycin, indinavir, itraconazole, nefazodone, nelfinavir, saquinavir, and telithromycin), do not use Generic Avanafil Tablets (Avana).
Prolonged erection greater than 4 hours and priapism (painful erections lasting more than than 6 hours in duration) have been reported with other PDE5 inhibitors.
In the event of an erection that persists longer than 4 hours, the patient should seek immediate medical assistance. If not treated immediately, penile tissue damage and permanent loss of potency could result.
Generic Avanafil(Avana Tablets) should be used with caution in patients with anatomical deformation of the penis, or in patients who have conditions which may predispose them to priapism (such as sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia).
Effects On Eye:
Doctors must advise patients to stop use of all PDE5 inhibitors, including Avana, and seek medical attention in the event of a sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes. Such an event may be a sign of non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), a rare condition and a cause of decreased vision including permanent loss of vision that has been reported rarely postmarketing in temporal association with the use of all PDE5 inhibitors.
Sudden Hearing Loss:
Use of PDE5 inhibitors has been associated with sudden decrease or loss of hearing, which may be accompanied by tinnitus or dizziness. It is not possible at present to determine whether these events are related directly to the use of PDE5 inhibitors or to other factors. Any patient that experiences these symptoms should be advised to stop taking Avana Tablets and seek immediate medical attention.
Alpha-Blockers And Other Antihypertensives:
Doctors must discuss with patients the potential for Avanafil to increase the blood pressure-lowering effect of alpha-blockers and other antihypertensive medicines. In certain patients, concomitant use of these two drug classes can lower blood pressure significantly leading to symptomatic hypotension (e.g., dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting).
Counseling Patients About Sexually Transmitted Diseases:
The use of Generic Avanafil Tablets (Avana) offers no protection against sexually transmitted diseases. Counseling patients about the protective measures necessary to guard against sexually transmitted diseases, including Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), should be considered.
