When Do Erectile Dysfunction Drugs Not Work?

Erectile dysfunction is when the penis remains flaccid preventing sexual intercourse from occurring.  It is caused by neurological conditions where the nerves have been damaged, circulatory problems or psychological issues.  If a man can reach orgasm through masturbation but not during intercourse - relationship issues may be the cause.  Anabolic steroids or hair loss treatment can cause erectile dysfunction.  Treatment for prostate cancer also causes ED.  

Viagra, Sildenafil, Cialis, Spedra and Levitra are all PDE-5 inhibitors.  They are used to treat erectile dysfunction.  They are prescription drugs and must only be issued by your doctor.  One tablet is to be taken at a time and a 24-hour window should be left before taking another one.  These treatments are often very successful and allow men to have a fulfilling sex life.  However, on some occasions erectile dysfunction drugs may not work and here are some reasons why not.

How Erectile Dysfunction Drugs

Erectile dysfunction medication comes from the PDE-5 inhibitors family of drugs.  They work by relaxing the blood vessels allowing blood to flow freely to the penis.  Viagra is the treatment that is most associated with ED.  

Sildenafil is the generic version of Viagra. It is considerably cheaper and most likely to be prescribed.  Cialis contains the active ingredient tadalafil which improves erectile function.  There is a, ‘when needed’, version that can be taken up to an hour before intercourse.  This should only be taken occasionally.  

Spedra contains avanafil and Levitra contains Vardenafil both relax the blood vessels to the penis.  If you follow the dosage instructions correctly you should enjoy an active sex life.  However, they may be less effective if you do not.

What Makes Them Less Effective?

Here are some simple reasons why your erectile dysfunction drugs may not work:-

  • You still need to be sexually aroused.  Taking medication won’t suddenly make your penis as hard and erect as Pinocchio's nose.  Get in the mood and enjoy foreplay it will make the drugs more effective.
  • A way to man’s heart is not through his stomach.  If you intend to have a major love session eating a slap up meal may prevent the medication from working.  Why not order room service or a takeaway after the great event instead?
  • Give yourself time - none of these treatments cause you to have an uncontrollable erection immediately.  They only work instantaneously in films because it is amusing.  Focus on the relationship during this time and share tender loving moments.
  • Do you believe that it works?  Probably the main reason that Viagra is so popular is that its name is synonymous with sex.  If you feel confident about the medication are taking you are more likely to have an erection.  Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra and the only difference is the price and of course the colour.
  • Practice makes perfect.  If you have lost your mojo it may take time to build up your confidence.  There is nothing unpleasant about having lots of sex so enjoy cultivating your erection.
  • Maybe you need to increase your dosage.  If the amount you are taking is ineffective you should consider visiting your doctor.  You may need to take more than the recommended dose.  If you are considered healthy enough this may be the solution.

Erectile dysfunction drugs have a profound effect on the circulatory system so it is vital that you only take drugs prescribed by a doctor.  Buying medication from an unknown source is risky because you don’t know if the ingredients are correct or if you are well enough to take them.
