Treating Erectile Dysfunction

Aug 17, 2007
With the stress of day to day life, many men of today are facing different sexual problems, of which the most common is erectile dysfunction. By erectile dysfunction, it means that the man finds it rather difficult to sometimes achieve penile erection, and sometimes to maintain an erection till ejaculation. Stress is the main culprit to this; and since stress is not avoidable today, many men turn to drugs and medications to help them solve this problem. So if you are in this group of men, you need not wait longer for the happiness pill of your needs, for it has arrived.

Those who were longing for a happiness pill for sometime now need not worry as it has scarcely been a decade since the first oral drug; Viagra has been introduced in the market for men suffering from erectile dysfunctions. The chemical used in this wonder drug is sildenafil citrate, and is actually not the first drug that has been created to address erectile dysfunction.

In fact, it is the first drug that is taken orally for a cure from erectile dysfunction. Prior to its introduction, drugs were either injected into the penis, or inserted into the urethra by placing it at the tip of the penis. With the introduction of Viagra, many other companies also started launching drugs to help cure erectile dysfunction.

Some of the new drugs were vardenafil hydrochloride, named as Levitra and tadalafil called Cialis. They were introduced one after the other, and the thing they both have in common is that they have to be taken about an hour before any sexual activity has been planned. With this tablet, the chemical causes chemical reactions which give rise to increased blood flow to the penis.

However, these drugs should not be taken more than once a day. And if the person is under other medications, these drugs are not at all advised. This is because these drugs, on combining with the medications that are taken everyday may cause blood pressure problems and heart attacks.

There are other oral drugs available to cure erectile dysfunction; however, it is now being contested if the results of erection are actually due to the drugs or if it is due to the placebo effect. However, there are some medications like testosterone, when taken regularly, may have some adverse affects on the liver. This is the reason it is not actually advised to take any drugs for erectile dysfunction, unless the medication is prescribed b a doctor.

It has been found that the drugs or medication that is injected into the penis or inserted into the urethra brings about a stronger and longer erection than the oral drug. However, there have been some side effects with these types of drugs like aching, priapism (which means persistent erection), scarring, bleeding, etc. So with the rapid pace that research is advancing today, it is actually better to wait it out for a better drug to help solve erectile dysfunction.
