The modern fast paced lifestyle takes its own toll on the body. Having to do too much in too little a time, can often lead to being able to do nothing when much needs to be done with passion and exuberance. Too much focus has been on building a career, erecting a house, riding a sports car and improving one’s financial status that most people begin to lose out on their love life. Erectile dysfunction is one of the most common problems affecting men from all around the world about which very little is discussed about, due to the embarrassments that accompany conversations about one’s conjugal life. But more attention is being brought to the issue with more and more people opening up.
Who is most affected?
Erectile Dysfunction or ED has a number of causes, many being physical and some being psychological. Heart disease, kidney failure, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis or clogged blood vessels, Parkinson’s disease and obesity are just some of the physical causes. Anxiety, stress and depression are a few of the psychological problems that can cause ED. Certain medications are also known to cause the disorder. Since anyone from any part of the world can be affected by any of the above mentioned problems, there are no racial or geological factors.
Although people of most age groups can be affected by ED, studies reveal, that the older a person grows, the more likely he is to be affected by ED. Up to forty percent of individuals will experience ED at least once when they reach the age of forty and over sixty percent of people over the age of sixty five are known to be affected. At least one in ten men gets affected by Erectile Dysfunction at some phase of their life.
With millions reporting the issue worldwide, a significant amount of focus and research has gone into finding a solution in the recent years. Oral medications, topical medications, injections, pumping devices, psychological therapies, extra corporeal shock wave therapy and in extreme cases, even surgery are seen as options to deal with erectile dysfunction.
Numerous brands of medications have come out in recent years promising swift and efficient remedy, but very few have been as effective as the medication Avanafil.
How Avanafil works?
Avanafil is a FDA and EMA approved drug used to treat individuals affected by erectile dysfunction. It is an oral medication and shouldn’t be consumed more than the recommended dosage. It was developed by Vivas Inc and goes by the names Spedra and Stendra. It is one of the most sought after medicines for the simple reason that it works much quicker than other similar medications available in the market. It is a PDF5 (phosphodiesterase type 5) inhibitor and it works by blocking certain proteins in the body which prevents blood vessels from expanding. This leads to the blood to flow to the penis and thereby remain erect during the course of coitus.
This pill has displayed very little side effects compared to other similar medications up for sale because of the pill remaining in the blood for far lesser time. Nasal Congestion, skin flushing and headache are just a few of the reported side effects. People who have consumed the pill report attaining erection in under twenty minutes and it supposedly reaches maximum concentration in the blood within forty five minutes. A majority of the consumers of the pill have given a thumbs up to the medication and it thereby remains very popular.
Viagra: A Viable alternative?
A medication similar to Avanafil that has a massive following among young adults as well as old is Sildenafil, which is sold under the name Viagra. It inhibits cGMP- specific phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) and increases blood flow to the penis, enabling it to become erect and remain so for a longer time. The medication is taken orally, but on occasions it is also administered through IV. Flushed skin, headaches and heart burn are some of its side effects and in some rare instances consumers have also reported prolonged erectness. People with cardiovascular diseases are advised to be cautious while taking the pill. The pill is usually taken one hour before coitus, for maximum effect.
