Erectile Dysfunction Home > VigRX

VigRX is a popular herbal "male enhancement" supplement. Since it is not an FDA-approved medication, there is really no evidence that it is indeed effective for penis enlargement or treating impotence. The supplement is meant to be taken every single day, much like a multivitamin (not just before sexual intercourse). Potential side effects include dry mouth, dizziness, vomiting, and insomnia.

What Is VigRX?

VigRX™ is a popular "male enhancement supplement." Because it is not an FDA-approved medication, the manufacturer of VigRX cannot directly claim that the supplement increases penis size or helps treat impotence (also known as erectile dysfunction, or ED). However, the advertisements for this product strongly imply that VigRX is intended as a penis enlargement or impotence treatment product.

Since VigRX is not an FDA-approved medication, there is no real guarantee that it actually contains the ingredients listed on the label (in the labeled amounts).
 

Is It Effective?

No studies have been done to see if VigRX really works in humans. Most of the ingredients in the product have little scientific evidence to suggest that they have any effect on sexual function. However, one active ingredient, ginseng, might help improve erectile dysfunction, although much more research is necessary to confirm this claim (see Does VigRX Work? for more information).
