All drugs are divided into two groups – natural and artificially synthesized. There are a number of drugs that are used in the treatment of male impotence (erectile dysfunction), while it is important to correctly determine the cause of the disorders. Every year the number of patients with erectile dysfunction increases, due to the negative influence of internal and external factors.
In medical practice, erectile dysfunction treatment with pills, natural preparations, physiotherapy is actively used, but if we are talking about psychogenic impotence, a course of psychotherapy is prescribed. In order for the treatment of impotence with pills to be effective, the treating doctor must select the pills for this treatment.
Only a medical specialist on the basis of diagnostic results knows which pills will be relevant individually for each patient.
Methods of ED treatment depending on the causes of impotence
In modern medical practice, the term “impotence” has not been used for a long time, being considered an incorrect and too traumatic diagnosis for patients. Today, impotence is usually called “erectile dysfunction”, since the quality of an erection directly affects a man’s ability to have sexual intercourse.
As a rule, for young men, erectile dysfunction becomes a consequence of psychological causes, while in middle and old age we can talk about diseases that contribute to impotence.
For reference! Erectile dysfunction may be present in the particular man who has been observing erectile dysfunction for 3 months or more. In other cases, sexual problems are considered to be temporary, not requiring medical treatment.
Violations of potency may be due to the following prerequisites:
- hormonal disorders in the body;
- vascular pathologies and impaired blood circulation;
- excess weight;
- diseases of the urogenital system of inflammatory, viral or infectious genesis;
- irrational use of potent drugs;
- sedentary pastime;
- bad habits;
- psychological disorders;
- avitaminosis, deficiency of nutrients in the body, exhaustion.
Determination of the causes of erectile dysfunction is possible only through a comprehensive diagnosis of the patient in the clinic.
The etiology of this problem implies a specific treatment method, for example:
- endocrine pathologies and hormonal failure require hormone replacement therapy, only the doctor prescribes appropriate drugs for erectile dysfunction;
- in vascular pathologies, those drugs for impotence are used, which improve blood flow and restore the health of blood vessels and the heart;
- alternative methods of treatment are used either with an uncertain etiology of impotence, or in combination with other meds of treatment.
If erectile dysfunction is the result of improper use of any drugs, treatment involves their complete abolition. Psychological problems should be solved in the office of a psychologist or a sexologist. One thing is clear, the doctor prescribes the treatment only after the diagnosis.
The best drugs for impotence or erectile dysfunction (ED)
As mentioned earlier, all methods of treatment, respectively, and groups of drugs, can be divided into three types – hormonal agents, phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors to improve blood flow, as well as homeopathic natural preparations of complex effects.
The list of medicines for erectile dysfunction is extensive, it is inappropriate to self-medicate any of these drugs.
Type 5 phosphodiesterase inhibitors
All drugs from this group are aimed at restoring normal blood flow, including the flow of blood to the genitals. But at the same time all these drugs have contraindications, as well as a number of side effects, so they should be used in consultation with the doctor.
Viagra (Sildenafil) is the most popular cure for erectile dysfunction, the main component of which is sildenafil. For many men, it is important to know whether Viagra helps them, because the drug costs a lot of money.

After the first dose of Levitra (Vardenafil), it will be noticeable how appropriate this drug is for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

All these three drugs can be taken only 1 time a day, and also use them periodically to stimulate erection, or constantly to achieve a therapeutic effect. Viagra, Cialis and Levitra suggest side effects, so it is important to choose the right dose according to the individual characteristics of the male body.
This group of drugs affects the bloodstream in a different way, but also accelerates the flow of blood to the genitals, thereby improving sexual function in men. Taking the drug from this group, the activity of endothelial NO-synthase is enhanced, as a result, the cavernous bodies of the penis are better filled with blood.

The prolongator drugs help a man not only to achieve an erect state of the penis, but also prolong sexual intercourse by acting on the nerve endings responsible for erection and potency. Prolongers are available in the form of cream, spray, tablets.
Dapoxetine is aimed at supplying the body with serotonin, which prevents early ejaculation and other sexual disorders. It is very important to use such a drug as prescribed by a doctor, as it has strict contraindications to it, as well as a list of side effects. One tablet costs about $2 in online pharmacies. Acceptable dosages of the drug are selected for each patient individually.
M16 – spray with prolonged action, which in its composition involves only natural ingredients. The advantage of spray M16 is instant action.

Each specified drug has positive reviews from men. It is difficult to say which one is the best. Much depends on the individual characteristics of a man’s body, the state of health, the etiology of impotence, the presence of concomitant disorders. In addition, the last word about the choice of the drug should be for the attending physician.
