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 for anyone considering medication to understand both the benefits and drawbacks; including potential side effects.
Most drugs that help with ED work by blocking the PDE5 enzyme, which increases 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.
In some cases, medication 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, including heart attacks and strokes.
It’s also worth considering the time delay necessitated by the use of any medications for erections. With some options taking over an hour to kick in, they may not be the ideal choice for spontaneous or one-time use.
