Brief Answer:
Used for IUGR.

Detailed Answer:
Hello there and Welcome To HCM.
I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
Seleg 25 contains SILDENAFIL which vasodilates the myometrial arteries and is used in females with Intrauterine Growth Retardation (IUGR) complicated pregnancies.

It is relatively considered safe to use but should be used cautiously in females suffering from Cardiac issues.

SILDENAFIL on initial use causes headache, flushing , nasal stuffiness. But the side effects are transient and resolves with ongoing treatment.

I hope this informations will be of your help .
If you have any further query, please ask me.
