Specialists believe that new medication may give faster results
A new medication with avanafil, Stendra, is officially proved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This drug for erectile dysfunction, marketed by Mountain View, stimulates blood flow and improves erection (as well as Cialis, Viagra and Levitra). By the way, it is estimated that almost 30 million Americans have erectile dysfunction problems.
Unlike listed t-5 inhibitors of phosphodiesterase, Stendra may be taken half an hour before an intercourse and is effective at the low dose. Though, quick-acting Stendra is not considered as panacea by all doctors. For example, Dr. Bruce Kava from the School of Medicine of University of Miami says that fast-acting is not an advantage in any case. “What is effective for one patient should have not such a good response from another”, he notices.
The response to phosphodiesterase t-5 inhibitors is variable for each individual. Thus, according to Dr. Kava, one man may better react to Cialis, which will have more durable result in his case, than recently appeared Stendra. What is really worth trying? Just find a medication that works best for you.
As for Stendra, its efficiency was examined in 3 anonymous placebo-controlled studies. More than 1,200 examinees were asked to take Stendra for 90 days at different doses 30 minutes before an intercourse. People were randomly chosen. Options included a placebo, 50 mg, 100 mg or 200 mg.
Just one more erectile disorder drug on market?
U.S. Federal Drug Administration expert from the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Dr. Victoria Kusiak says that Stendra gives one more option to patients and doctors. Men with erectile problems should select proper treatment individually, consulting with their physician at any case.
Drugs of the same class as Stendra usually have a list of side-effects and should not be taken with nitrates or some other drugs. FDA experts warn that this may lead to pressure drops and other cardio-vascular problems. More widespread side effects associated with it include skin redness, nasal congestion and headache. In rare instances erectile disorder medication may change color vision and even provoke a loss of eye-sight.
Sudden hearing disorders might also be associated with phosphodiesterase t-5 inhibitors taking. In these cases patients should stop taking a medication and call their doctor for an immediate medical care. One more surprising effect reported with PDE5 inhibitors is incessant erection. All these cases demand professional medical help.
