Newer medication belonging to a class of medication known as PDE5-I can help with erectile dysfunction. Another well known medication is The Blue Pill. The medication helps those suffering with erectile dysfunction.


How does it work?

The medicine acts on the smooth muscle of the blood vessels within the body of the penis allowing increased blood flow to the region. Increase in blood leads to an increase in turgid pressure resulting in stronger, longer lasting erection.

What is the dosage?

There are two strengths available, 5mg and 20mg. The more common 20mg dose is used 1 hour before sexual activity and is effective for up to 36 hours. Please note this doesn’t mean the erection lasts this long! This is just how long the medication is effective in your system.

The 5mg dose is taken once daily at the same time to build up a steady level in your system. This is more costly but works best for some men as it doesn’t require time planning prior to sexual intercourse. This lower dose can also be used for men experiencing symptoms of prostatitis.

Any side effects?

The most common side effect is a headache. If this occurs we recommend using a half tablet next time.
