Impotence Treatment with Drugs

men around the globe - Impotence Treatments - DrugsCountless men around the globe have had their sex lives forever changed by the arrival of impotence drugs in the late nineties. Traditionally, it was assumed almost all impotence was mental in origin, making drug treatment seemingly pointless. And while psychological factors can indeed be common contributors to impotence, it’s now generally accepted that around 75-90% of all impotence is largely physical in origin. So while for some men basic lifestyle changes and counselling may be of some help, for the majority some sort of comprehensive treatment that targets the underlying physical causes of impotence is really needed as well. And it’s for this reason that the impotence drug market has really exploded over the last decade, from humble beginnings to the lucrative multi-billion dollar industry we see today. To think it all began with one little blue pill!

Impotence Drugs – Viagra

Viagra. The little blue pill that started everything, way back in 1998…little blue pill - impotence treatments - drugs The very first oral impotence drug, Viagra had a huge cultural impact in terms of men’s sexual health when it hit markets in the late nineties. Suddenly, the hitherto taboo topic of erectile dysfunction was on everyone’s lips, from doctors to the evening news to blokey banter at local pubs. Originally developed as a medication for hypertension or high blood pressure, Viagra’s active ingredient, Sildenafil, belongs to a class of drugs called PDE-5 inhibitors. PDE-5 Inhibitors in a nutshell work to relax smooth muscle tissue and improve bloodflow to the penis and thus erectile function as a result. Of course, there’s a bit more to it than that, but the full erectile process is complex enough to warrant a full page in its own right. Viagra only works to improve penile bloodflow, and does nothing to improve sex drive itself. As such it will not work if you are not sexually aroused!

Impotence Drugs – Levitra

Impotence is common amongst Aussie men—more common than you might think! Most Aussie blokes tend to pass the buck on the issue though, whether playing it down or downright denying the issue. Research suggests however that about 40% of Aussie men in their forties are affected by some degree of impotence, and by age seventy this figure is closer to 70%. Some experts even suggest that all men will eventually experience some degree of impotence, if they live long enough. Levitra has quickly become one of the most popular impotence drugs in Australia, due in part to its competitive price on the local Aussie market. Its active ingredient is Vardenafil, a PDE-5 inhibiting impotence drug similar to Viagra’s Sildenafil.

Impotence Drugs – Cialis

Cialis is another PDE-5 inhibitor impotence drug popular in Australia. Its main appeal as an impotence drug probably stems from its extra-speedy action: Cialis can take effect in as little as fifteen minutes, and last up to a whopping thirty-six hours! Hence its popular nickname ‘the weekend impotence drug’. It’s important though to remember that like all PDE-5 inhibiting impotence drugs, Cialis does not increase libido, and neither does it solve relational issues! Good sexual health is of course about more than just erections. Cialis’s active ingredient is called Tadalafil, and owing to its especially long lasting effects, it’s the only PDE-5 inhibitor based impotence drug offered as a once-daily medication as well as a ‘taken as needed’ drug.

Impotence Drugs – Stendra and Zydena

Stendra and Zydena are relative newcomers to the international impotence drug market. Both based on PDE-5 inhibitors, Avanafil and Udenafil respectively, the manufacturers hope these new impotence drugs will have far less side effects than the big three. Initial trials seem to provide some support for this assertion. At this stage however, research data is still insufficient to draw any hard conclusions. As at the time of writing, neither has yet been approved for the Australian market.

Impotence Drugs – Side Effects and Cautions

All PDE-5 inhibiting impotence drugs are available only with a prescription and doctor’s consultation, and for good reason. They come with a fairly long list of potential side effects, interactions with other drugs, and sometimes severe consequences if not taken strictly as directed. One of the most common issues is alcohol consumption. Viagra users should avoid alcohol completely, and whilst Levitra and Cialis are fine to take with moderate levels of alcohol, it’s been found that high levels may cause severe side effects in some Aussie men.

Cautions for PDE-5 inhibitor impotence drugs:

Any of the following may cause severe problems in conjunction with PDE-5 inhibiting impotence drugs, and any deliberate or accidental combination is to be avoided. If you suspect any of these may apply to you and are unsure, it is vital you advise your doctor before beginning any course of impotence drugs.grapefruit - impotence treatments drugs
