Drug therapy of erectile dysfunction

Who thinks about the treatment of erectile dysfunction usually has the so-called “potency pills” in the head first. Issuing a prescription usually does not result in a cure and does not help every man achieve an erection.


Viagra®: The triumph of the blue “miracle pill”

More and more men resort to erectile dysfunction to Viagra®, the world’s most famous sexual enhancer for years. Viagra® contains the active ingredient sildenafil, which belongs to the group of PDE-5 inhibitors (also called PDE-5 inhibitors). The blue “miracle pill” came on the market in 1998 by the pharmaceutical company Pfizer.

In European coun, sildenafil-containing medicines require a prescription. In UK, the company Pfizer until June 22, 2013 with Viagra® – and therefore, of course, with the active ingredient Sildenafil – patent protection: Therefore, only Pfizer Sildenafil brought to the market. Meanwhile, more than 30 companies in English-speaking countries produce tablets that contain sildenafil. With the introduction of generics, prices for the sexual enhancer have fallen sharply. By contrast, sales have doubled in some countries.

A scientific study by Prof. dr. Sommer proves that men with erectile dysfunction prefers to take a tablet to have a good erection again. It’s not that easy. Before resorting to potency remedies, the affected man must introduce himself to the doctor. This has, among other things, the following reasons:

Potency have a variety of side effects, such. Headache, nasal breathing problems, and tachycardia, which must be cleared up to the patient.

A specialist must check if there are any interactions between the sexual enhancers and other medications that the man takes.

The specialist should first make a comprehensive diagnosis to see if an untreated underlying disease is the cause of the erectile dysfunction.

Depending on the doctor’s diagnosis, the most effective therapy is determined. There are z. B. Cases where other treatment options are much more effective and sustainable than pure treatment with a sexual enhancer.

If the specialist, after a comprehensive diagnosis of the opinion that tablets contribute to the therapy, they should be obtained only from the pharmacy or from reputable Internet pharmacies.

Beware of Viagra® or sildenafil counterfeiting

It is important (and this is recognized by a reputable pharmacy) that the so-called power resources are given only upon presentation of a prescription. Our own research has shown that over-the-counter sexual enhancers are counterfeit drugs in over 80% of cases. In addition, more than 70% of all over-the-counter medicines do not contain the active ingredient on the package. In addition, in a large part of the tablets examined harmful substances for the man, such as heavy metal impurities. Here, the highest caution is required.

Do not compromise your health to save a few euros. In the end, the damage that you inflict is much greater and more expensive in the long term.

Patent protection expired from Cialis

On 15 November 2017, there was good news for men using Cialis (Tadalafil): Patent protection has expired. This makes it possible to buy the cheaper generic drugs.

Tadalafil is a PDE-5 inhibitor (also called PDE-5 inhibitor, phosphodiesterase inhibitor type 5 or phosphodiesterase V inhibitor). Cialis, which is only available on prescription in UK, is also referred to as a weekend pill. The name came about because Cialis as a prescription drug with a half-life of 17.5 hours is broken down very slowly in the body. The result: Men who take the drug on Friday evening, feel partially even on Monday morning, the effect. There is nothing in the way of a fun weekend!

Generics must be offered in the same dosage as the original product. Cialis is available in the dosage 5 mg, 10 mg and 20 mg. Most commonly, the 20 mg dose is available as a generic. At the dosage of 5 mg Tadalafil, the price difference is not as extreme as 20 mg, but the cost savings are still around 35 percent.
