ED Treatment options
ED Counseling - Even though most cases of ED have a physical cause, counseling can help couples deal with the emotional effects.
ED Oral medication - Your doctor may prescribe a pill to treat ED. Current brands include Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis. These drugs work by increasing blood flow to the penis. Do not take any of these drugs if you are taking nitrates, a type of heart medicine.
ED Injectable medication - Medicines injected into the shaft of the penis or inserted into the tip of the penis usually cause an erection within 50 to 15 minutes and last for 30 minutes to several hours. Prostaglandin (alprostadil, Caverject, Edex), and phentolamine (Regitine), they cause vascular dilation and a relaxation of smooth muscle. This injection is useful not more than once in four to seven days.
