Sildenafil is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence; inability to get or keep an erection) in men. Sildenafil (Revatio) is used to improve the ability to exercise in adults with pulmonary diese pillen arterial hypertension (PAH; high blood pressure in the vessels carrying blood to the lungs, causing shortness of breath, dizziness, and tiredness). Children should not usually take sildenafil, but in some cases, a doctor may decide that sildenafil (Revatio) is the best medication to treat a child’s condition. Sildenafil is in a class of medications called phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors. Sildenafil treats erectile dysfunction by increasing blood flow to the penis during sexual stimulation. This increased blood flow can cause an erection.

Target Students 

The AOK program seeks students on the line of barely passing or barely failing the ISTEP test and who are eager to improve their academic performance. The AOK program offers small group homework assistance and enrichment activities, not individual tutoring. Therefore, the program is not able to assist students with major academic deficits.

  • Journaling.
  • Enrichment lesson in math, language, and character education.
  • Homework assistance.
  • Other educational games and opportunities.
