Erectile Disfunction Medicine

Were you looking for information about Erectile Dysfunction Medication? Erectile disfunction medicine is a common variation of erectile dysfunction medication.
 
There are currently a number of medications that have been approved to treat erectile dysfunction. These drugs are available in oral or injection form.
 
In 1998, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Viagra®, the first pill to treat erectile dysfunction. Since that time, vardenafil hydrochloride (Levitra®), tadalafil (Cialis®), orally disintegrating vardenafil (Staxyn™), and avanafil (Stendra™) have also been approved for erectile dysfunction.
 
Viagra, Levitra, Cialis, Staxyn, and Stendra are examples of phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors. These oral drugs are taken one hour prior to sexual activity. While oral forms of ED medication improve the response to sexual stimulation, they do not trigger an automatic erection as injections do. Drugs like papaverine hydrochloride, phentolamine, and alprostadil are injected into the penis -- and alprostadil can alternately be inserted into the urethra in pellet form, through a system called MUSE.
