Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a physical and mental challenge that impairs the ability of a man to get an erection or maintain one. It affects the mental state because a man that can’t control his erections feels alienated due to expectations in society. Societal expectations portray a man as a sexual being. It is a serious challenge in relationships because it doesn’t allow the man to have an active sex life. It is usually caused by factors such as high blood pressure, smoking or psychological issues. If it is caused by physical factors, there may need to ingest medication that enables the man to get and keep an erection. There are several types of pills that are approved by the FDA and are taken orally that help treats Erectile Dysfunction.
Hard On Pills Mechanism of Action
The hard on pills are meant to make things that occur naturally to work. It is important that you know what goes on in the body to understand how they work. When you are aroused, your brain sends signals to the penis and its tissues are filled with blood. The blood gives the penis the rigidity of erection. If you have ED, there is a problem with blood flow.
Hard on pills help increase the flow of blood to the penis tissues. They increase the nitric oxide levels in your body which work together with other chemicals in the body to relax the blood vessels in the penis to allow blood to flow into the tissues to form an erection.
What Kind of ED Pills Can You Take?
ED pills also referred to as hard on pills, enable the man to have an erection by relaxing his muscles and facilitating the flow of blood to the penis. Examples of hard on pills are Sildenafil (commonly known as Viagra), Avanafil (Stendra), Tadalafil (Cialis) and Vardenafil (Levitra/Staxyn).
However, not everyone can take ED drugs. People who have allergic reactions to the active ingredients of the drugs and those who take nitrates for chest pain should steer clear of hard on pills because they can get low blood pressure. Since there are different kinds of ED pills, you may wonder whether they work in the same way. Are there kinds that are better than others? The answer is, they work in a similar way to each other. There may be some minor differences in the lasting effect they have or how quickly they become effective.
The various ED pills have different characteristics allowing them to suit different desires. Staxyn is dissolved in the mouth and can take effect after even 15 minutes. Cialis lasts longer than most and can be effective for close to 36 hours. Viagra becomes effective in around half an hour and can last for 4 hours. Stendra can last up to 6 hours after taking effect in 15 minutes. You can change the ED pill you are consuming according to your needs and the effect they have.
Are there Any Side Effects?
Like any other drug, ED pills have side effects but they vary from one individual to another. In some cases, one type of ED pills can affect you but another doesn’t. Some of the common side effects include:
• Nasal congestion
• Back pains
• Stomach upsets or heartburn
• Visual effects (your eyes may perceive light` slightly differently)
Dangers of ED Pills
Hard on pills are not recommended for people who have had a heart attack or a stroke in the not so distant past. If you’ve had an irregular heart rate recently up to 7 months, ED pills are not recommended as well. If you are taking nitrates like nitroglycerin for chest pains, do not use these pills as they can harm you or even kill you.
Some people are allergic to certain active ingredients in medicines including those active ingredients in hard on pills, they should check with the doctor before putting themselves in harm’s way. Consult with your doctor if you are also currently taking prescription or nonprescription medicine as well as dietary supplements. The doctor should help determine whether you are good to go with ED pills. Avoid using ED pills if you are poised to be on the operating table, even if you are to have dental surgery. Research has also pointed out that if you use hard on pills as well as alpha blockers used for prostate problems and blood pressure, you can experience low blood pressure which can plummet to catastrophic levels.
A word of caution as well when you use ED pills. If you notice that you have an erection that has lasted for more than 4 hours without sexual arousal, you need to have emergency treatment immediately because the blood is usually trapped in the penis and it can be detrimental to your future erections and can cause permanent damage. A painful erection is a red flag as well. Report that immediately.
What if Hard on Pills don’t Work?
Erectile Dysfunction pills are very common nowadays. Statistics tell us that for up to 30% of men, erectile dysfunction drugs do not work. There are alternatives available for these people. One of the alternatives is injections. The injection is made directly in the penis. The injection forms an erection in 5 to 20 minutes and the erection lasts for around one hour. Some men use urethral pellets. A urethral pellet made from alprostadil is inserted at the penile opening and it is absorbed by the urethral wall. It takes effect in about 10 minutes but the erection lasts for about 1 hour.
Erectile dysfunction can be cured by ED pills and more than 70% of the men who use ED pills are able to get erections and enjoy a vibrant sex life.
