Erectile dysfunction nasal sprays have been developed using pharmaceutical drugs developed for other purposes like treating depression or Parkinson’s Disease.
In general they are more suited to men who suffer from premature ejaculation, because most forms of erectile dysfunction nasal spray contain the anti-depressant Clomipramine, which is effective for men with PE because it reduces penile sensitivity, allowing men who climax too quickly to hold on for longer.
Ironically this group of drugs, the SSRI’s (selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors) have also been shown to reduce sex drive.
They are much less effective for men whose erectile dysfunction is related to age-related changes like declining testosterone or reduced penile blood flow.
And they have been used by clinics operating high pressure sales techniques to attract in potential customers who are then offered alternative more invasive treatments like penile injections when the erectile nasal spray does not work.
The UK website Netdoctor has also warned some sex clinics are using a nasal spray containing the pain killer tramadol, which is related to morphine, habit forming and can cause mental confusion and abdominal problems, so it is important to know what the nasal spray contains.
If premature ejaculation is not the problem men with erectile problems are more likely to benefit from other forms of erectile dysfunction treatment like an oral erectile drug or herbal erectile supplement like Herbal Ignite than a nasal spray.
