The drug udenafil, marketed under the trade name Zydena, is within the PDE5-inhibitor class (which also includes avanafil, sildenafil, tadalafil, and vardenafil). Used, like other PDE5 inhibitors, to treat erectile dysfunction, undenafil was developed by Dong-A Pharmaceutical.[1] With action of fairly rapid onset (peak plasma concentration after 1 to 1.5 hours) yet long duration (plasma half life of 11 to 13 hours), udenafil's pharmacokinetics allows once-daily dosage (in addition to on-demand use).[2] Typical doses are 100 and 200 mg. Udenafil is available in Korea, Russia, and the Philippines;[3] in the United States, it has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
