Erectile Dysfunction (ED) Meds
What is erectile dysfunction (ED)?
Erectile dysfunction, ED for short is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection. Though it can be challenging to talk about, erectile dysfunction is a common problem that affects men of all ages but is more common in men over the age of 40. ED affects about 30 million men in the United States.
There are many possible causes of ED, including psychological factors such as stress and anxiety.
In some cases, erectile dysfunction may be a symptom of an underlying medical condition. However, erectile dysfunction can also be a standalone condition. Many treatment options are available for erectile dysfunction, including medication, lifestyle changes, and surgery. With the help of DrHouse, you can figure out which treatment option is right for you.
What causes ED?

Physical causes of ED include heart disease, diabetes, blood vessel disease, different medication, and obesity. Psychological causes include stress, anxiety, and depression.
Can ED be treated?
Yes, erectile dysfunction can be treated. Many treatment options are available for erectile dysfunction, including medication, lifestyle changes, and surgery. With the help of DrHouse, you can figure out which treatment option is right for you.
Can ED medication help?
Yes, erectile dysfunction medication can help. There are many different medications available for erectile dysfunction, including Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra.
How does ED medication work?
Erectile dysfunction (ED) medication works by improving blood flow to the penis. This allows men to achieve and maintain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse.
Common ED medication
There are a number of effective medications used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). The most common ED medications include:
- Sildenafil (Viagra): Viagra is the most well-known ED medication, and for good reason. It is effective for many men and has few side effects. Viagra works by increasing blood flow to the penis, making it easier to achieve and maintain an erection.
- Tadalafil (Cialis): Cialis is another popular ED medication. Like Viagra, it increases blood flow to the penis and helps men achieve and maintain an erection. However, Cialis can be taken daily, allowing men to be ready for sexual activity at any time.
- Vardenafil (Levitra): Levitra is similar to Viagra and Cialis in terms of how it works and its efficacy. However, Levitra may work more quickly than other ED medications.
What are the common side effects of ED meds?
Erectile dysfunction (ED) medication can be effective in treating the symptoms of ED. However, like all medications, they can also cause side effects.
The most common side effects of ED medication include headache, flushing, indigestion, and nasal congestion. These side effects are typically mild and resolve on their own.
More serious side effects are rare but can include sudden hearing loss or vision loss. If you experience any of these side effects, stop taking the medication and seek medical help immediately.
