New ED drug may work in 15 minutes

Look out Viagra - there's a new erectile dysfunction drug in town.

It's called Stendra (aka Avanafil) and it's newly approved by the Food and Drug Administration, making it the first ED drug to come out in almost 10 years.

Although Stendra has not been tested against what is known as the "Little Blue Pill," drug makers say that - for some men - it may work faster.

"If things are heated up, theoretically you can get improved function earlier, within 15 minutes, with this drug," said Dr. Irwin Goldstein, director of sexual medicine at Alvarado Hospital in San Diego, and co-author of a recent study about Stendra in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

"You can argue this is the first potential on-demand drug."

The "on-demand" drug could end up in high demand for men with ED who do not respond to drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra.

Goldstein, who has authored more than 300 studies in the field of sexual dysfunction, said that early data suggests Stendra may perform faster than other ED drugs, but that must be proven in a larger, real-world population.

Goldstein and his team studied 1,267 men who took a 50, 100 or 200 milligram dose of Stendra - or placebo - about 30 minutes before engaging in sexual activity.

The men filled out questionnaires indicating, for example, how long it took before they engaged in sexual intercourse or became aroused.

"For some men it works in 15 minutes, for some men it took longer," said Goldstein.

To be clear, no one is suggesting that men should drop Viagra - or any other of the popular ED drugs– for Stendra.

"There is no drug that is the best," said Dr. Laurence Levine, a professor in the department of Urology at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, who was not a part of the Stendra study. "Each patient's own chemistry may make one drug better than another. There are certain advantages and disadvantages to all of these drugs."

Stendra is another option in a field of effective and safe drugs, said Levine.

A small minority of patients experienced side effects after taking Stendra, according to the study, including headaches, flushing, nasal congestion and back pain.

And overall, patients taking any ED drug - all of which work similarly - should be aware of rare side effects like sudden loss of vision or hearing, according to the FDA.

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    Ученые нашли ключ к полному оздоровлению. Наука преподнесла бесценный подарок вдумчивым людям.
    В ходе 10-летнего междисциплинарного российско-норвежского проекта «Системное оздоровление человека» разработана первая аксиоматическая теория здоровья.
    Ученые обобщили новейшие достижения социологии здоровья, генетики, геронтологии, нутрициологии, физиологии, квантовой теории информации и ряда других наук.
    Фундаментальная научная методология и аксиоматический метод позволили решить задачу полного (системного) оздоровления человека, которое определено,
    как максимальный уровень здоровья, реально доступный человеку с учетом имеющегося состояния его организма.
    Это достигается за счет полного использования базисных факторов здоровья.
    Это новое понятие означает минимальный набор незаменимых факторов, полностью определяющих здоровье человека.
    Их правильное использование выводит здоровье на максимально доступный уровень.
    Человек неделим, поэтому здоровье рассматривается в единстве физического, энергетического, душевного (психического) и духовного уровней.
    Профессиональная специализация авторов позволила охватить 90% факторов здоровья по общемировой классификации ВОЗ.
    Не учтены только факторы медицины, от которых здоровье зависит на 10%.
    Система оздоровления доведена до удобного домашнего применения в любом возрасте и состоянии здоровья практически без ограничений при небольших затратах времени.
    В результате нормализуется сон, вес, давление, состояние сердечно-сосудистой, дыхательной, выделительной, нервной систем и психики человека.
    Уходят боли в суставах, усталость и большинство болезней, а с оставшимися намного легче справляются врачи.
    Система здоровья незаменима для семей с детьми (здоровье закладывается на всю жизнь), пенсионеров, для восстановления после инфарктов, инсультов и сложных операций,
    а также нужна всем, кто хочет жить без проблем со здоровьем на 20 лет дольше.
    Врачи получат современнейший уникальный материал для использования в профилактической работе, реабилитации и консультаций пациентов в клинической практике.

    Хотите жить без проблем со здоровьем на 20 лет дольше?
    Запишитесь на бесплатный вебинар по российско-норвежской сиcтеме полного оздоровления на сайте https://www.здравослов.рф

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!
