Staxyn Uses

How Does Staxyn Work?

When a man is sexually aroused, the body releases certain chemicals that relax the muscles in the penis. Normally, these muscles are constricted so that blood cannot flow into the penis. When the muscles relax, large amounts of blood are able to enter the penis, causing an erection.
An erection is reversed when an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type-5 (PDE5) breaks down the chemicals that caused the penis muscles to relax in the first place. As the penis constricts again, the blood leaves the penis and the erection goes away.
Staxyn works by blocking PDE5. When PDE5 is blocked, the chemical that caused the penis muscles to relax cannot be broken down. Therefore, these muscles stay relaxed, blood stays in the penis longer, and the penis stays erect.

Does It Work Without Sexual Stimulation?

No -- Staxyn will not work without sexual stimulation. This is because the chemicals that cause an erection are released only when a person is aroused. Staxyn has no effect on these chemicals being released. It only keeps the chemicals in the penis longer.

How Long Does It Take for Staxyn to Start Working?

The amount of time it takes for Staxyn to work can vary. For most men, it will likely begin to work in under an hour. Therefore, it is generally recommended that you take Staxyn an hour (60 minutes) before sexual activity.

Can Children Use It?

Can Women Use Staxyn?

Staxyn is not approved for use in women, as it has not been adequately studied in women.
