Possible Treatments for ED

Published on January 2nd, 2020

If you’re seeking erectile dysfunction treatment in Weston, FL, you’re by no means alone. Erectile dysfunction (ED) is an extremely common problem affecting 15 to 30 million men in the U.S., and the problem ranges from unsatisfactory performance to complete impotence.

Fortunately, modern medical science provides a number of possible remedies.

Oral Medications

These most common of these include:

·         Sildenafil (Viagra)

·         Tadalafil (Adcirca, Cialis)

·         Vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn)

·         Avanafil (Stendra)

All these medications enhance the effects of nitric oxide, a natural chemical your body produces that relaxes muscles and increases blood flow to the penis.

Possible side-effects include flushing, nasal congestion, headache, backache and upset stomach.

You shouldn’t use any of these if you’re taking nitrate drugs for heart disease.


Alprostadil (Caverject Impulse, Edex) is injected into the base or side of the penis using a fine needle. Side-effects can include minor bleeding at the injection site and prolonged erection (priapism).


A tiny alprostadil suppository is placed inside the penile urethra. Side-effects can include pain, minor bleeding and the formation of fibrous tissue inside the penis.
