Levitra Viagra or Cialis Q & A

How do erectile dysfunction medications work?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) medications, such as Levitra, Viagra, and Cialis, are effective treatments for many men, at least initially. These medications work by enhancing the effects of nitric oxide, which is a natural chemical in your body that increases blood flow and produces firm erections.

Even when you take Levitra, Viagra, or Cialis, sexual stimulation is necessary to release nitric oxide from nerves in the penis. It may take an hour before the effects of the medication kick in.

What are the side effects of ED oral medications?

Levitra, Viagra, and Cialis can produce side effects, such as:

  • Nasal congestion
  • Headaches
  • Visual changes
  • Flushing
  • Backaches
  • Upset stomach

The team will work with you to determine which medication and dosage will give you the best chance for a healthy sex life.

How effective are Levitra, Viagra, and Cialis?

These medications may work well initially for many patients, but they can be less effective over time and in certain situations. For example, ED oral medications may not work well or can be dangerous if you:

  • Recently had prostate surgery
  • Have diabetes, heart disease, or heart failure
  • Are taking nitrate drugs for chest pain
  • Have very low blood pressure

Talk with the team at Male Method to see if Levitra, Viagra, or Cialis would be beneficial for you or if you should try another treatment.

What are other ED treatments?

If oral ED medications don’t work for you, other ED treatment options include:

Penile intracorporeal injections

You can administer penile intracorporeal injections yourself into the base of your penis using an auto applicator. This treatment can produce erections that begin just 7 to 10 minutes after the injection and can last one hour or longer. You’ll feel minimal pain as the injector is extremely small.

Extracorporeal shock

Another innovative way to treat ED is with extracorporeal shock wave therapy. This method, which is noninvasive, safe, and effective, uses pulsating sound waves to improve blood flow in the penis and enhance erections. The team uses a gel-coated probe to emit the sound waves.
