PDE5 Inhibitors is a category given to certain medications used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction and they were the first effective oral treatment available for the condition. The major PDE5 inhibitors are sildenafil, tadalafil, vardenafil. These are the active ingredients found in Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra, respectively. Each of these has different potencies, duration of action, and the onset of action. Thus, not all PDE5 Inhibitors are the same. For example, Cialis earned the first market approval for once-daily dosing, which may appeal to individuals desiring more spontaneity.
The PDE5 inhibitors offered at Balanced Medical Solutions are unique in that they are specially compounded to dissolve under the tongue quickly and thus, they are faster-acting, go straight to the bloodstream and cause fewer side effects.
Interestingly, according to a study presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 66th Annual Scientific Session, men who took PDE5 Inhibitors for erectile dysfunction in the years following a heart attack had a substantially lower risk of dying or being hospitalized for heart failure than men who did not use these drugs. In effect, sildenafil (Viagra) was first studied in clinical trials for coronary heart disease in 1991, but the drug serendipitously had favorable effects on penile erections and went on to become one of the first medical treatment options for erectile dysfunction.
It is important to be medically evaluated to know what your dosage should be and which PDE5 is the better fit for your body type and lifestyle. Balanced Medical Solutions can help you determine if PDE5 Inhibitors are right for you and what your correct medication and dosage should be.
