Compare all Erectile Dysfunction treatments
It's estimated that hundreds of millions of men around the world get ED . So it follows that there are quite a lot of different erectile dysfunction treatments available – no one treatment is ever going to work perfectly for everyone.
For the first time user, it might not seem obvious where to start. But luckily, there is a 'path' you can follow – starting with a certain type of ED drug if you're new to treatment.
The most common treatment for erectile dysfunction is a type of drug known as a ‘PDE5 inhibitor’, which includes sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil, and vardenafil. These will all work in largely similar ways, which is to relax the muscles around your penis and increase blood flow, making it easier to achieve an erection when you become aroused.
Usually you’ll need to take these drugs around an hour before you plan to have sex, and they’ll last in your system for around five hours. But some drugs like Efil that contain Tadalafil can be taken daily, or stay in your system for longer – so you can be ‘good to go’ whenever you need to.
Typically, if you’re taking ED drugs for the first time, you’ll be recommended one of sildenafil or tadalafil. This is because they have a proven record of being effective treatments , and come as an oral tablet - meaning many people use them without too much difficulty.
But they’re not always going to work or be suitable for everyone. Other types of treatments range from creams, injections and tablets that melt on your mouth. However, these treatments are not currently available in India.
