Viagra alternatives

Other ED medications that work

Viagra is not the only pill that can be used to treat erectile dysfunction, though it is the most commonly prescribed one. There are also other forms of treatment outside medication; so, if you are looking for alternatives to Viagra, then you may be pleased to know that there are plenty. While these may not be as effective as the popular drug, they may be necessary if you have an adverse reaction to Viagra.

Levitra

Levitra is similar to Viagra in a few ways, primarily in that it is a PDE-5 inhibitor, just like its counterpart. It increases blood flow and ensures that blood continues to flow for around 4-6 hours. This does not mean that an erection will last that long, but it does mean that one can easily be maintained when the user is aroused.

Research has shown that this drug tends to work better for diabetics than Viagra does, so it may be prescribed as an alternative by your doctor if you suffer from diabetes.

Cialis

Another drug that works similarly to Viagra is Cialis. It is yet another PDE-5 inhibitor, and it lasts as long as 36 hours. That makes it a popular option for people who want to take a single pill to last them all weekend. Unlike the other options, it works in as little as 30 minutes. The competition can take an hour or so to process and become effective. It’s quick-acting effect has made it the drug of choice for men who don’t want to plan too far ahead and end up taking a pill they don’t actually need. It can be used more spontaneously than the other ED medications.

Spedra

Spedra is one of the newest treatments for erectile dysfunction. It is also one of the quickest ED treatments, working within 15-30 minutes. The effects of Spedra can last for around 4-6 hours and the majority of patients, find it effective at helping them achieve and maintain an erection.

Therapy

Sometimes, men can have their erectile dysfunction treated successfully with therapy. The therapy can be either psychological or natural, and while it may not be as instantly effective as medication, it can cause fewer side effects and create lasting results.

Psychological treatments often involve the man sitting down with a therapist and sometimes the man’s partner as well to talk about intimacy issues, stress and other problems that affect sexual libido and performance. Discovering a source of emotional trauma or a reason for psychological stress can help many men solve their problems without the need for drugs.

Natural therapies can take a few different forms. Most often, they include acupuncture or homoeopathy. While these have no scientific basis, some men have reported success using them, and there is speculation that their outcomes are predicated more on psychological factors than physical ones.

Changes in Lifestyle

Many times, the underlying problem causing ED is something that can be corrected by making a few changes to the way a person lives. If they change their diet, exercise more often or simply quit a bad habit, it can increase their blood flow and improve sexual desire. A high cholesterol diet, smoking, excessive drinking and a lack of exercise can all significantly contribute to erectile dysfunction.
