Erectile dysfunction is an issue that affects millions of men around the world. Fortunately, there are several medications available in the UK to help treat it. In this guide, we’ll compare some of the best erectile dysfunction drugs on offer and take a look at their side effects, benefits and effectiveness.

Viagra (Sildenafil)

Viagra is one of the most well known ED treatments and was one of the first medications approved by the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) for treating ED. It works by increasing blood flow to the penis during sexual stimulation which helps facilitate an erection when aroused. Side effects can include headaches, facial flushing, nausea, dizziness, blurred vision and stuffy or runny nose. Viagra typically starts working within 30 minutes of consumption but its effectiveness varies depending on individual physiology. Its effects usually last approximately 4 hours.

Cialis (Tadalafil)

Cialis works in a similar way to Viagra by increasing blood flow to facilitate an erection but has been found to be more effective for longer lasting erections due to its longer half life of 17-36 hours compared to Viagra’s 4 hours half life. The side effects are similar with potential headaches, facial flushing, nausea, dizziness and muscle aches being reported in some cases. Cialis is available as both a generic medication or under its brand name “Adcirca” for certain conditions requiring pulmonary artery hypertension treatment e.g., high blood pressure in the lungs (pulmonary arterial hypertension).

Levitra (Vardenafil)

Levitra is another type of oral medication developed specifically for treating ED which increases blood flow to enable an erection when sexually aroused. Its effects last slightly shorter than Cialis with approximately 12 hours after taking it before they wear off again though its onset time may be slightly quicker at 15-25 minutes compared with 30 minutes for Viagra or Cialis respectively. Again it can cause similar side effects including headaches, facial flushing, nausea and stomach upset though these should settle over time as you become more familiar with taking it regularly if needed.

Spedra (Avanafil)

Spedra is fast acting ED treatment which begins working within 15 minutes after taking it while its effect lasts up to 6 hours making it a great option if you need something that’s going to act quickly yet still remain effective for a reasonable amount of time afterwards! Again it comes with potential side effects such as headache, back pain or nasal congestion but as mentioned above these should decrease once your body adjusts over time if they don’t go away completely with short term use..

In conclusion there are several different medications currently available in the UK to treat erectile dysfunction though each person’s response will inevitably differ depending on their individual physiological makeup and lifestyle factors so always consult your doctor before trying any new medications yourself! With good communication between you and your doctor however you’re sure to find the best solution for yourself soon enough!
