Understanding Erectile Dysfunction
What are the main remedies?
TABLETS are the most common and popular treatment for ED. They work by increasing the flow of blood to the penis during sexual intercourse. These oral treatments must not be taken by men who are also using medicines containing nitrates. At Pharmacy Direct, we stock a range of oral ED treatment such as Viagra, Sildenafil and more.
INJECTIONS such as Caverject are one of the more popular solutions for some that may not opt for oral medication. Caverject is injected into the base of the penis to stimulate an erection. It normally starts working within 5-20 minutes and lasts about an hour.
PELLETS such as Muse may be a better option for those who don't want to administer injections. Similarly to Caverject, Muse contains Alprostadil as the active ingredient and is administered by inserting a small pellet into the penis.
CREAMS like Vitaros are another way to achieve an erection. Vitaros is applied directly to the penis and can be another effective alternative.
SEX THERAPY will be particularly helpful if the ED has psychological causes which can't actually be "cured" with physical treatments. If a man has ED as a result of emotional conflict with a partner, providing him with a drug that produces an erection isn't going to resolve that conflict. In any case, whatever the cause or treatment of their ED, many men could benefit from counselling or therapy.
