The pharmaceutical market offers a wide variety of measures to help men cope with erectile dysfunction. But how to choose the best one and how to protect yourself against possible undesirable consequences? First of all, it is worth learning how such drugs actually work and how they affect our body.
Potency drugs - how do they work?
Knowing how popular preparations for potency work will help you to choose the best medicine for specific ailments, and will also give you an idea of how to use the most effective and safest way to make the most of the potential of a given medicine.
Erectile dysfunction is one of the most common sexual disorders in men. The active substance sildenafil is most often used in the treatment of such problems. It is part of a wide range of prescription and over-the-counter medicines. They differ substantially in the dosage of the active substance in the same tablet. Among the most popular drugs available in pharmacies, the vast majority will contain about 25 mg of the active substance - sildenafil, but pharmacies can also buy drugs with doses up to 100 mg of the active substance. However, higher doses are associated with the need to obtain a prescription, practically all drugs for potency over 50 mg of sildenafil are prescribed by a doctor.
Sildenafil is a drug that inhibits the secretion of the enzyme responsible for the decomposition of nitric oxide. Higher levels of ON include dilated arteries and increased blood flow to cavernous bodies building the penis. As a result of the inflow of large amounts of blood, cavernous bodies fill and lift and stiffen the penis. Tadalafil and wirdenafil have similar effects to sildenafil. The latter, however, similarly to sildenafil, works quite briefly, absorbing from the digestive tract. Vardenafil, on the other hand, has a long life span. Although there are some differences in the individual active substances, e.g. in the chemical structure or in the operating time, the mechanism of action itself is the same.
Potency - reasons for potency
Among the most common causes of erectile dysfunction we can find mainly psychological problems, such as strong and prolonged stress, anxiety or depression. Problems of this type are also favoured by the specific pace of life, characteristic of developed societies. Factors that can contribute to the emergence of erection problems can also include alcohol abuse, stimulants such as cigarettes or inappropriate diet, or a sedentary lifestyle without any signs of physical activity. However, this should not be limited to such a substrate alone, as erection problems can result from and be a symptom of much more serious and prolonged ailments. Among the most common causes of erectile dysfunction in men on other than psychological grounds, we can find diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease, hyperlipidemia or even multiple sclerosis. It is therefore worthwhile, having problems with erection, to go to a specialist to diagnose the possible cause of the disease.
