Stendra (Avanafil) is a rather new medicine approved in 2012 by the FDA and available with a prescription for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men only. This medicine is not for use in women or children.
Coming on the market Stendra not a long time ago, this medicine has gained a great popularity due to certain reasons. First of all, it is very safe and effective. Secondly it is fast-acting with the average time of onset of action 15 minutes after the medicine is taken.
The treatment for erectile dysfunction by oral route is very comfortable, so Stendra answers the most needs of men with these problems: it acts fast after use, it is very effective and does not cause serious side effects.
Stendra contains avanafil as the main component which provides a significant increase of blood flowing to the penis and filling it. This helps improve erectile function upon sexual arousal.
The medicine induces strong erections and maintains them for required time.
Being a competitive option for the treatment of ED in men, Stendra often wins in the competition due to its fast set of action. Viagra can starts acting only after 45 minutes in general, Cialis needs usually 30-45 minutes for the actions being seen. The same results are observed with Levitra.
Additionally, like Cialis, Stendra is not affected by food intake. It can be consumed with foods and drinks. This is, of course, the great advantage of using Stendra.
Stendra, in fact, allows having the steady supply of the main ingredient in the bloodstream to make sexual activity spontaneous and most natural.
The effect of the medicine usually lasts for 6 hours, which is longer than with Levitra or Viagra. Cialis, still, is a winner in this sector.
In the other sectors characterizing the oral anti-impotence medicines, Stendra is very similar to all the three leading drugs.
The side effects of Stendra can be avoided if it is correctly used. The proper intake reduces the risks of side effects and provides the needed therapeutic effects for which this medicine is intended.
Stendra still can produce headache, facial flushing, and nasal congestion, sore throat, and muscle pains in some men. Serious side effects of Stendra happen very rarely.
The drug Stendra like other oral ED medicines should not be taken by men who take medicines containing nitrates. The medicines called nitrates produce the blood pressure lowering effect. They are used by men with chest pain and heart related conditions. As Stendra can also decrease the pressure of the blood, the concomitant use of nitrates and this medicine can be dangerous.
Men, who have concerns about their medicines, their generic names, should consult their doctors to find out about safe use of several drugs. Drug interactions can be harmful for health and in most cases the use of different drugs should be separated by certain time gaps.
Stendra comes in dosages of 50 mg, 100 mg, and 200 mg. Tolerance to this medicine in most men can be different. The majority of men respond to the treatment well.
