If you're having trouble gaining or maintaining an erection, one of the most commonly known treatments is the use of certain medications. However, as with any new treatment, it’s important to understand both the benefits and drawbacks of these drugs; including potential side effects.

Typical Erectile Dysfunction medications work in a similar fashion – by blocking the PDE5 enzyme, they increase blood flow into the penis upon sexual arousal. For many, this is sufficient, removing one of the key issues that prevents users from gaining erections; although in some cases, users have found that the drugs end up unable to maintain the erection or create side effects that might be hard to ignore.

Potential Drawbacks of ED Medication

In some cases, medications used to help with the symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction can come with side effects. While the most common issues are relatively minor, including facial reddening and headaches, there’s a risk of more severe consequences – particularly for those with preexisting heart issues, with potential side effects including heart attacks and strokes.

It’s also worth considering the time delay necessitated by the use of any ED medication. some drug options taking over an hour to kick in, they may not be the ideal choice for spontaneous use.

Here are a few other facts to consider about ED medication:

  • Won’t increase libido
  • Like other treatments, these drugs won’t cure the root cause of ED issues
