Created by Auxilium Pharmaceuticals, Stendra (Avanafil) prides itself as the first FDA-approved erectile dysfunction drug in nearly 10 years. It is taken 30 minutes before sexual intercourse, and can be taken with or without food. This prescription ED drug, in a clinical study of men with ED, caused the following: (1) 3 out of 4 attempts at vaginal penetration were successful, (2) 100 mg and 200 mg helped potentially treat ED in men with diabetes. Stendra is available in three dosage strengths – 50 mg, 100 mg, and 200 mg, with 100 mg as the recommended starting dose.
Proprietary drug formulation
- Offers multiple clinical study findings to help verify Stendra effects on erectile dysfunction
- Good focus on ED as a male sexual woe, and addresses its different symptoms
- Pharmaceutical formulation with rigorous testing and quality standards
- Comprehensive safety warnings and information
- Prescription-based, so you cannot obtain it on your own or use it without your doctor’s supervision
- Drug therapy may bring unwarranted side effects and unexpected conditions
Stendra, no matter how it plays up its FDA approval (said to be the first in nearly 10 years), is still part of the crop of erectile dysfunction drugs that have a caveat: unwanted potential side effects. This is the same issue with Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, and other ED drugs that may have an effective mechanism against ED, but cannot control chemical effects in your body that are rather unexpected. It is also prescription-based and need close doctor’s supervision to be “safe” and effective. We would like to stick to herbal supplement therapy in the case of male enhancement, as the documented effects of these drugs are a cautionary tale that needs to be heeded.
