Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) or impotence is the inability to develop or keep an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse. It is a common condition as 1 in 10 men suffer from ED at some time, but the chances increase with age.

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction or impotence is the inability to achieve or maintain a penile erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual performance.

The ability to achieve an erection is an important part of a man’s overall health, regardless of age. However, many men suffer erectile dysfunction in silence, without seeking help or advice.

Erectile dysfunction is a symptom and not a disease. It may occur due to physical or psychological factors. Physical causes include cardiovascular disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. Whereas depression and anxiety can be the psychological causes of ED. Alcohol, smoking and illegal drugs, as well as some prescription medicines can also cause erectile problems.

Prescription medicines which can cause erectile problems include:

• Blood pressure medication (Beta-Blockers, Methyldopa, Verapamil and Clonidine)
• Anti-depressant (Amitriptyline, Tranylcypromine, Phenelzine, Fluoxetine, Citalopram, Sertraline, Paroxetine)
• Diuretics (Spironolactone, Bendroflumethiazide)
• Anti-arrhythmic (Digoxin, Amiodarone)
• Anti-psychotic (Chlorpromazine, Haloperidol)
• Histamine (H2) antagonist (Cimetidine, Ranitidine)

Treatments for erectile dysfunction are usually safe and effective. Medicines like Sildenafil (Viagra), Tadalafil (Cialis) , Vardenafil (Levitra) and Avanafil (Spedra) have shown to significantly improve the ability of obtaining a hard erect penis suitable for sexual activity. These medication work by helping to relax the blood vessels in the penis, allowing blood to flow into the penis when the person gets sexually excited.

There are other similar medicines called Vardenafil (Levitra) and avanafil (Spedra) that work in a similar way. These medications are all classified as prescription-only-medicines and will need a valid prescription to obtain them. Therefore, Pillhub will generate a free valid prescription as part of our online consultation process.
