Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is common amongst men between the ages of 40 and 70, as it is estimated that almost a half of men this age will suffer from some impotence problems. ED treatments are available in a variety of forms, however the most popular treatment used is tablets.
As part of our online pharmacy service, we provide an online consultation with our GMC registered doctor. Simply select your treatment and complete the online doctor's questionnaire. Your information will then be reviewed by our doctor and, if approved a private prescription will be issued. If you already have a private or NHS prescription, you can select the correct medication and send your prescription to Oxford Online Pharmacy. Your prescribed medication will be dispensed and sent discreetly to your chosen address as soon as we have received your prescription.
There are a number of widely used ED treatments for impotence. Tablets, which temporarily increase blood flow to the penis, are commonly used. These tablets are the prescription only medicines, Viagra (Sildenafil), Cialis (Tadalafil), Levitra (Vardenafil) and Spedra (Avanafil). Viagra and Levitra typically take 60 minutes before they work, and the effects may last up to eight hours. Before taking this prescription medication you should avoid heavy meals and alcohol, as these factors can reduce effectiveness. Cialis (Tadalafil) usually takes 30 minutes to work and can last up to 36 hours. Moreover, Spedra is fast acting and takes 15 minutes to work. You should only take one tablet within a 24 hour period and sexual stimulation is required for these tablets to work. The non-drug alternative is an ED Pump available from us here
Erectile dysfunction, or impotence, is common amongst men aged 40 and above. It is estimated that half of men aged 40 to 70 have some erectile problems. Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get or maintain an erection during sexual intercourse.
The causes of erectile dysfunction may be physical, psychological or both. Physical causes may be due to a narrowing of the blood vessels going to the penis. This can be triggered by weight problems, lack of exercise, smoking, excessive alcohol intake, high blood pressure, diabetes, low testosterone (get a test here) or high cholesterol. In turn, psychological causes may include relationship problems, stress or depression.
If "when required" tablets are not effective we would strongly recommend trying a 3 month (minimum) course of Tadalafil 5mg tablets - take ONE a day - which treat ED but also have established benefits for your cardiac, blood sugar and circulatory health. See here
Non-tablet ED treatments include Invicorp, Caverject and Viridal which can be injected into the base of the penis. Caverject and Viridal contain the drug Alprostadil, as does Muse, which is taken by inserting a small pellet into the urethra (water hole) of the penis. Another alternative is Vitaros cream, which also contains the active ingredient Alprostadil. Vitaros is applied to the hole in the penis, and is an alternative ED treatment if you have problems taking tablets.
There is a wide choice of ED treatments and tablets, which come in various strengths; Viagra, Sildenafil, Cialis, Levitra and Spedra and their suitability can be viewed in the table below. Viagra is made by Pfizer in the UK and in June 2013, the Viagra patent ended. As a result, there is now a choice of Pfizer Sildenafil and Sildenafil, which are cheaper versions of Viagra. However, to obtain ED treatments you will need a prescription using our simple online doctor process.
