If you watch television at any time of the day, you will most likely see commercials for erectile dysfunction medicine. Every commercial usually has the same theme: A mature couple is having a romantic night at home or doing something romantic. They are holding hands and looking deeply into each other’s eyes. This appears to be the perfect setting for romance, doesn’t it? You can have the most romantic setting possible, but it is all for nothing if the medicine you are taking is not getting to the root of the problem.


Talk to a trained professional

Many people make an appointment at their doctor’s office in order to talk about the symptoms they are experiencing in connection with erectile dysfunction (ED) and to obtain a prescription for Viagra, Cialis or Levitra, in order to help with their erectile dysfunction problem. The doctor will ask a variety of questions and they will need to know if you can achieve an erection and if you can maintain the erection. Granted, you do not have to share all the intimate details of your love life, but your doctor does need to have a good idea regarding when the problem occurs. Even after you get the details out in the open, your doctor needs to understand why this may be happening. A series of tests will likely be conducted to rule out other health problems that may be causing the erectile dysfunction.
Urine tests will be conducted to look for diabetes and other health conditions. Blood tests will be done to check for signs of heart disease, diabetes, low testosterone levels and other problems. It may make you uncomfortable, but the doctor will have to do a physical examination of the penis and testicles to feel for any abnormalities. Your nerves will also be checked for problems with sensation or circulation. Ultrasounds may need to be conducted to go over the blood vessels that surround the penis. This is sometimes done with an injection of medications into the penis to stimulate blood flow and produce an erection. This process may pinpoint blood flow problems that could be interfering with your ability to achieve and maintain an erection.
If nothing can be found that is physically wrong with you, do not be surprised if talk therapy sessions are prescribed to see if there are any emotional or psychological issues surrounding your romantic performance. Not every case of erectile dysfunction can be attributed to a physical problem or ailment. Doctors will likely be looking for signs of depression or other mental issues.
Many times, these treatments are only a way to improve the symptoms of ED, and do not actually treat the underlying cause of the ED. Another option, which is growing exponentially in popularity, is Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT). At Innovative Wellness we specialize in ESWT treatment. This non-invasive, breakthrough treatment has been proven through both clinical studies and medical practice and is the perfect solution for a variety of different orthopedic problems including carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, and erectile dysfunction, to name just a few.


How do erectile dysfunction medicines work?

Most men experiencing erectile dysfunction probably do not want to admit it, but when it comes to romance, they do need to get their confidence back. Many may second guess themselves and their ability to satisfy their partner. Even a small amount of doubt can have a major effect on a man’s ability to achieve and maintain an erection. When doctors prescribe erectile dysfunction medicines like Cialis, Viagra or Levitra, it is usually for a short period of time to allow the man to get his confidence back. A small dose of Viagra is sometimes all it takes for a man to feel he has all the power he needs to please his partner. It can reduce the recovery period needed between sex sessions, and it can be very helpful to the 40 percent of men who suffer from premature ejaculation.
However, not every man has confidence problems in the romance department. Many experience health issues that lessen the ability to achieve and maintain an erection. Quite often the problem involves blood flow and circulation throughout the body. Erectile dysfunction medicines like Cialis, Viagra or Levitra, relax tight blood vessels surrounding the penis. This allows for more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection. These types of medicines work for about two-thirds of men with erectile dysfunction.
There is a better solution out there. ESWT not only treats the symptoms of ED, but it also treats the underlying cause as well without putting potentially harmful chemicals in your body. Using Acoustical Wave Therapy (AWT), acoustical sound waves are pulsated on the penis, which triggers a healing response and helps to open constricted blood vessels up, promote the creation of new blood vessels, and repair tissue. Of the men who have received this treatment, 80% saw a complete reversal of their condition and 90% reported seeing results and enhanced sexual performance, making it one of the most popular and successful erectile dysfunction treatments available.


Does one medicine work better than another?

There are many erectile dysfunction medicines on the market. Just about all of them have commercials on television claiming to do just about the same thing. So how do you know which one works better than the rest? Again, this is where talking to your doctor may help you choose what medicine is right for you. Cialis is a long-lasting medication that is taken in a daily dose. Since it is long-lasting, patients who take it are able to introduce more spontaneity into their romantic life.
Viagra or Levitra will not immediately cause an erection. Patients who take it will need to be aroused before they are able to achieve and maintain an erection. Unlike Cialis, Viagra and Levitra are not long-lasting. It may even be a little more difficult to maintain an erection while taking these medicines. Spontaneity will take a backseat when the mood strikes, and action must be taken. In other words, use it or lose it. That is why many men are turning to ESWT. With this treatment, the tissue and blood vessels actually get repaired, and overtime a man can get and maintain an erection on his own, when he wants, without the help of prescription medication.


Side Effects

Erectile dysfunction medicines are just like other prescribed medicines. Taking them includes the possibility of developing side effects. Erections lasting longer than four hours while taking erectile dysfunction medications should be reported to your doctor or other medical professional. Additional side effects may include headaches, dizziness, facial flushing, runny nose, indigestion, backache and visual changes. To decrease the risk of potential side effects, your doctor may start you on the lowest dose possible and slowly increase the dosage until it is proven effective.
Erectile dysfunction medicines should be taken as directed by your doctor. They are not addictive. In some cases, you may not even need to take them every day, especially if you are only taking them to prolong your intimate moments. To take these medications for intimate moments, you must be sure that your heart health is ready for such activity. If you have a known heart condition, you should check with your doctor about taking this medication to prolong intimate moments. If such activity is not even something you are thinking about in your plan for that day, taking the medication will just represent a wasted opportunity. These types of medications are not cheap, and many health insurance or prescription plans may not cover them. With ESWT however, there are no medications to run through insurance, nothing to consume, and the effects are lasting. This is not some band aid treatment; it is something that actually repairs the underlying cause of ED.
