Yes you can - Stendra is the brand name for the medicine Avanafil in the United States and some other areas of the world.
Avanafil is marketed in the UK under the brand name Spedra. This means that Stendra and Spedra are exactly the same medicine, they are given different brand names in different parts of the world. This is not unusual with medicines.

The tissue inside the penis is soft and spongy in its resting state, when blood rushes into this tissue it causes it to become bigger and firmer. This is an erection.
Sometimes this blood flow into the penis isn’t as strong as it should be and doesn’t cause a full erection, or an erection that lasts long enough for sex. We call this Erectile Dysfunction or ED for short.
This weakened blood flow can happen for different reasons. One of these reasons can be that the blood vessels flowing into the penis have become narrower due to fatty plaque build up, this is why we always recommend new Spedra customers to get a heart check with their GP. ED can be an early warning sign for heart disease.
See our dedicated post about causes of ED here.
Spedra works by helping to widen (relax) these blood vessels that carry blood to the penis following sexual stimulation. This helps to both achieve and maintain an erection long enough to enjoy sex.

Of all the ED treatments, Spedra is the only drug clinically proven to be effective 15 minutes after it is taken and effects last up to 6 hours.

Yes you do, you can obtain a prescription from your GP or from our online doctor as a faster and easier option.
Our doctors are UK based and are experts in the treatments we offer.
The most common side effects with Spedra are headaches, stuffy nose and flushing/reddening of the face.
These are all harmless and can often be managed by staying well hydrated or taking pain relief in the case of a headache.
If you’ve never tried Spedra before, you should start with the 50mg tablets and only increase if they are not effective enough.
I also recommend looking at our ED starter pack - this contains a box of Sildenafil (non-branded Viagra), a box of Tadalafil (non-branded Cialis) and a box of Vardenafil (similar to Viagra and Spedra, lasts up to 8 hours) if you haven’t tried any of these treatments before.
