Erectile dysfunction pills can be a good solution for erection problems. But how exactly do they work, are they suitable for everyone and which erection pill is the best? In this article you can read more about these erection medications.

How do erectile dysfunction pills work?

Erection problems can occur if the blood supply to the penis is not optimal. The blood vessels do not dilate, causing insufficient blood to flow to the penis. As a result, the penis remains limp or the erection goes down too quickly. Erectile dysfunction pills can temporarily solve this problem.

The active substances in erection pills are phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors. These drugs make the blood vessels dilate better. This can allow enough blood into the penis to get a good erection.

Erection pills only work under the influence of sexual stimulation. So you need to get aroused to get an erection with the help of the medicine. In the absence of that arousal, the penis won't become stiff. An erection pill is therefore not an aphrodisiac!

How to stay erect for hours with pills: types of erection pills

There are different types of erection pills. The difference between these brands lies mainly in the duration of their effect. Most erection pills begin working within half an hour and wear off after about 8 hours. But there are also erection pills that work longer. An overview of the best-known erection pills:

  • Viagra (active substance: sildenafil): works within half an hour, lasts for about 4 hours after ingestion;
  • Levitra (active substance: vardenafil): works within half an hour, lasts for about 4 hours after ingestion;
  • Cialis (active substance: tadalafil): works within half an hour, lasts for about 36 hours after ingestion.

Good to know: the effect of the erectile dysfunction pill can take a little longer if you take the tablet on a full stomach. Alcohol may reduce the effect of the erectile dysfunction pill.

What are the best erection pills?

There is no conclusive answer to the question ‘what is the best erection pill’, because this varies from man to man. One may respond better to Viagra, while another responds better to Levitra; often it is a matter of trying them out.

Another thing that can play a role is how often you want to use an erectile dysfunction medication. If it is for occasional use, a medicine like Viagra or Levitra may be the best erection pill for you. If you want to have sex more often, a long-acting medicine like Cialis could be a better choice. You only need to take the tablet once and its effect lasts for 36 hours. This is why Cialis is also known as the ‘weekend pill’.

Sample pack of erection pills

Would you like to buy pills for erectile dysfunction (ED) but haven't yet decided which one is right for you? Then book an online doctor's consultation and request a trail ED pack. The pack includes a number of erection pills from the brands Viagra, Levitra and Cialis. This allows you to compare the pills and quickly discover which is the best erection pill for you.

Please note that the sample pack of erection pills is not suitable for everyone. If you are not allowed to take erection medication, you will not be eligible for this product. A doctor will prescribe the sample pack of erection pills after an online consultation.

For whom is the erection pill not suitable?

Erection pills are intended for men who regularly or permanently suffer from erectile dysfunction (also called impotence). However, the tablets do not work on everyone. For example, Viagra and other erection pills have no effect on erectile dysfunction resulting from severe nerve damage.

If you are taking medicines containing nitrite, do not take erection pills. By combining these medicines, your blood pressure could become dangerously low. There are many other drugs that can interact unfavourably with erection pills. Therefore, consult a doctor to see if you are eligible for treatment with erectile dysfunction medication. Also check with a doctor if you suffer from cardiovascular disease or any other condition. A doctor will know if you can take erection pills such as Viagra, Cialis and Levitra safely.

Viagra for women

Perhaps it would be a good idea to put an end to a persistent misunderstanding: Viagra is not an aphrodisiac. This medicine only affects the blood flow to the penis so that a man can get and maintain an erection. Viagra is therefore not intended (and not suitable) for women. Viagra for women does not exist!

Instant erection pills without prescription

Talking about erectile dysfunction is still a taboo. That keeps a lot of men from going to the GP about this issue. Which is understandable, but unfortunate, because erection medication can often make it possible for them to have a satisfying sex life again.

A number of men would prefer to go to the pharmacy for erection pills without a prescription, so that they don't have to be seen by the doctor. Unfortunately, this is not possible; erection pills without a prescription are not permitted. This is for your own safety!

Why can't you get erection pills without a prescription?

ED medications like Viagra, Levitra and Cialis cannot be obtained without a prescription in the EU. There is a reason for this: like all medicines, erection pills can cause side effects. These include headaches, back pain, flushed skin, blocked nose, heart problems and visual abnormalities. In addition, these tablets should not be used in combination with certain other medicines. Therefore, a doctor will always carry out an examination before issuing a prescription.

For those who prefer not to go to a general practitioner for their erection problems, an online consultation can be a solution. You complete an extensive online questionnaire, which is then assessed by a doctor. If your order request is considered medically necessary, the doctor will issue a prescription. Based on this prescription, a pharmacy will send you the prescribed treatment.

If you have any further questions on the use of Viagra, ask a doctor or pharmacist.
