Clinical Effects

Stendra has been studied in clinical trials involving men with erectile dysfunction. In these studies, more men who took Stendra were able to get and keep an erection than men given a placebo (a "sugar pill" that does not contain any active ingredients). Specifically, in one study, up to 57.1 percent of men who took Stendra were able to maintain an erection long enough to have successful intercourse, compared with 27 percent of the men who took the placebo.
In another study, Stendra was evaluated in men with diabetes who had erectile dysfunction. In this study, up to 40 percent of the men taking Stendra were able to keep an erection long enough to have successful intercourse, compared with 20.5 percent of the men taking a placebo.

When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Stendra include the following:
  • Stendra comes in the form of a tablet. It is normally taken by mouth about 30 minutes prior to sexual activity.
  • Do not use more than one tablet in a 24-hour period.
  • This medication can be taken with or without food. Try taking it with food if it seems to bother your stomach.
  • Stendra will not cause an erection without sexual stimulation.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.

Dosing Information

The dose of Stendra your healthcare provider recommends may vary, depending on a few factors, including how you respond to the medication and other medications you are taking. As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
