Viagra is a phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor. Phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors have no direct relaxant effect on isolated human corpus cavernosum, but enhance the effect of nitric oxide by inhibiting phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5), which is responsible for degradation of cGMP in the corpus cavernosum. When sexual stimulation causes local release of NO, inhibition of PDE5 by sildenafil causes increased levels of cGMP, resulting in smooth muscle relaxation and inflow of blood to the corpus cavernosum.

The physiologic mechanism of erection of the penis involves release of nitric oxide (NO) in the corpus cavernosum during sexual stimulation. Nitric oxide then activates the enzyme guanylate cyclase, which results in increased levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), producing smooth muscle relaxation in the corpus cavernosum and allowing inflow of blood.

If you are experiencing erectile dysfunction due to prostatitis you can try Viagra and see. Highly likely that it will be effective.
