Tablets for erectile dysfunction

Friday, 18 July 2014 04:59 by Leo March

The first tablet available for erectile dysfunction, Sildenafil Citrate, has been largely responsible for helping to bring the topic of erectile dysfunction out into the open. Similar medications — Tadalafil and Vardenafil — are now also available, and have a similar mechanism of action to Sildenafil Citrate, though there is some difference in their duration of action.

These treatments help in the process of gaining and maintaining an erection by working on the biochemical mechanism of an erection. They belong to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. These treatments work by stopping PDE5 from breaking down an erection-producing chemical called cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). cGMP helps to relax the smooth muscle cells in the penis's erectile tissue, allowing more blood to flow in to the penis to cause an erection.

Medications such as Sildenafil CitrateTadalafil and Vardenafil will work only if you are sexually stimulated. They are not aphrodisiacs and won’t increase your sex drive.

Side effects of these medications can include headaches, flushes, indigestion and, in rare situations, a distortion of vision or change in colour vision.

PDE5 inhibitors cannot be taken by all men, so your doctor will need to evaluate your suitability before prescribing either of these medications. Men with certain heart problems or those taking nitrates for angina, for example, should never take Sildenafil Citrate, Tadalafil and Vardenafil. Check with your doctor to find out if this type of medication may be suitable for you.
