Erectile Dysfunction

UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain ED. Below is what he has to say.

Erectile dysfunction, or ED for short, is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection. Sexual function in men can decline after the age of 50, but there have been major breakthroughs in the treatment of ED with the development of convenient oral medication like Vardenafil, Tadalafil and Sildenafil, better known by the brand names Levitra, Cialis and Viagra. They work by increasing blood flow to the penis in order to help achieve and sustain an erection when sexually aroused. They can take around 30 to 60 minutes to work.

Sildenafil is avalable as the branded version Viagra, and also is the generic, and both are equally effective. Cialis, also known as the 'weekend pill' needs to be taken about 30 minutes prior to sexual activity, and can be effective for up to 36 hours. As well as oral medications, there are other options too and your doctor can help you decide which may be best for you.

UK Meds offers the generic and branded forms of Viagra and Cialis. If you need a prescription, the doctor's service at UK Meds can help you.
