A number of different causes can trigger erectile dysfunction and they may be physical or psychological. In younger men it is most often due to psychological problems. In contrast, erectile dysfunction in older men is more frequently due to a physical cause. Diseases such as diabetes mellitus or atherosclerosis, which can lead to generally restricted blood flow including in the blood vessels of the penis, play a considerable role.
Treatment of erectile dysfunction depends on the underlying causes of it in the individual patient. The doctor will decide with the patient which therapy is most suitable in his case.
PDE-5 inhibitors are the substances most frequently used for treating erectile dysfunction with medicinal products.
PDE-5 inhibitors are a group of active substances that are used for medical treatment of erectile dysfuntion. The prerequisite for an erection is dilatation of the blood vessels in the penis during sexual arousal. The blood vessels fill with blood with the result that the penis becomes erect. PDE-5 inhibitors do not themselves increase sexual desire but make erection possible by interacting with sexual stimulation. PDE-5 inhibitors only work during sexual stimulation.
As a general rule, medicines do not have the same effect in all patients. This is also true for PDE-5 inhibitors. If PDE-5 inhibitors do not have the desired effect, please consult your doctor. There are currently alternative treatment methods for erectile dysfunction available, which are easy to use and highly effective.
Counterfeit medicinal products can mean enormous danger for your health. They may possibly not contain any of the desired active substance at all, or the tablets may be contaminated with substances that are a health hazard. Since counterfeit medicines are illegal, they are not subject to any official controls. To protect your own health it is therefore important to use medicines officially prescribed by a doctor.
