Medical Cures for ED Can Kill

For the millions of men who suffer from ED, pharmaceutical sex drugs come as a huge relief. Most of them are available over the counter or via the Internet and one need not bother with any embarrassing visits to the doctor or the chemist. The popularity of these pharmaceutical drugs has risen tremendously over the past years and despite passive advertising campaigns, companies manufacturing these pharmaceutical drugs are doing good business.

These pharmaceutical magic drugs seem simple; you pop in a dose, sexually stimulate yourself and you achieve an erection.

Really is it that simple?

Let us look at three different prescription sex drugs that all adopt a common formula to fight ED to understand what the manufacturers of these pharmaceutical prescription drugs would rather not tell you.

VIAGRA (Sildenafil) – The first of the PDE 5 inhibitors, Viagra is most definitely the most famous too. While 70% of the time the drug works effectively about 25 % men are not too happy with the results. The drug needs to be taken on an empty stomach about an hour before intended sexual activity. The drug however, does have its fair share of problems.


Viagra should not be taken by men who suffer from cardiovascular risks, liver damage, low blood pressure, renal failure, hereditary degenerative retinal disorders or even suffered a recent stroke or heart attack.


Even men who do not suffer from these complications can face side effects of Viagra. These side effects can range from blurry vision, upset stomach, headaches, palpitation, photophobia, headaches and even prolonged erections that do not die down despite an orgasm.

LEVITRA (vardenafil) – Apart from being a PDE 5 inhibitor, Levitra also helps by increasing the flow of blood into the penis to help men achieve a longer and stronger erection. The drug is known to work for about 6 hours after which another dose is required to achieve the erection. However, this second dose will increase the risks and side effects of the drug drastically and this is why most doctors recommend sticking to a single dose per day.


Those who suffer from underlying heart diseases or have a risk of facing a heart attack during sexual activity will need to steer clear of Levitra because it lowers blood pressure drastically.


Right from headaches, runny nose, flushing, upset stomachs, dizziness, nausea, blurry vision, increased sensitivity to light, nasal stiffness, all these are side effects of Levitra. There have been cases where men have suffered prolonged and even painful erection for hours due to the medication.

CIALIS (Tadalafil) – This drug works by increasing the flow of blood into the penis and thereby helps in achieving an erection.


Those who suffer from high blood pressure and heart diseases, high cholesterol and eye problems should not consume Cialis. Smokers and those over the 50 year mark should also stay away from the drug.


The common side effects of Cialis range from headaches, sore muscles, runny nose, back ache, indigestion and sometimes even a problem in differentiating between green and blue. However, the more serious problem comes due to the decreased flow of blood to the optic nerve that is known to cause sudden vision loss in users of Cialis.

As is obvious, these over the counter pharmaceutical sex drugs are hardly safe. Thankfully there are effective herbal options that can be adopted in order to combat ED. The trick is to choose a natural solution that has the right ingredients and in the right proportion too. ED can be fought but it is important to find an herbal and safe cure.3750
