Spedra to be Launched Soon

The latest in erectile dysfunction treatments introduces Spedra from pharmaceutical company Vivus, and with this clever new treatment, Vivus looks set to out perform their competitors. For many men, it takes a mere fifteen minutes to get working and this is the main distinction between Spedra and other treatments like it. Spedra is a PDE-5 inhibitor just like viagra, cialis and levitra, but with a faster onset period.

With all of these drugs, the active ingredients are known as phosphodieterase-type-5 inhibitors and they block an enzyme known as phosphodiesterase, which is normally responsible for the breaking down of a substance known as cyclic guanosine monophosphate. This substance is normally produced in the penis and aids blood flow necessary for a successful erection. So, the PDE-5 inhibitor stops the action of the phosphodieterase in order that the cyclic guanosine can continue to be produced. Spedra, in particular, is known to increase the concentration of PDE-5 more so than other PDE-5 inhibitors, again setting it apart from erectile dysfunction treatments that have been on the market for quite some time.

The pill should be taken 30 minutes prior to sexual activity but for some men, the drug gets to work within 15 minutes, allowing for spontaneity and less planning when it comes to sexual activity. Taking Spedra with food might slow down the onset of the treatment though and it will work more quickly if taken without. The recommended starting dosage of the treatment is 100mg but it is also available in 50mg and 200mg dosages. Dosage will either be lowered or increased depending on the patient and this will depend on medical history and other medications a patient might be taking. Spedra will only be available on prescription and full medical histories should be divulged beforehand given that illnesses like heart disease and angina could seriously affect the health of the patient who is also taking erectile dysfunction treatment. Furthermore, men with serious hepatic/ renal impairment or patients who have suffered certain cardiovascular related illnesses are contraindicated. Another reason it is vital to obtain drugs like Spedra on prescription is that erectile dysfunction is often indicative of other underlying health problems and so, potential illnesses will need to be dealt with and stabilized before this sort of treatment begins.

As with all prescription treatments, there is the possibility of side effects and in this case they might come in the form of headache, flushing, redness of the skin or blocked nasal passages. Some patients will experience no side effects at all and also, any side effects experience will cease when treatment ceases. As per all erectile dysfunction treatments, where men experience an erection that lasts longer than four hours (priapism), medical attention should be sought immediately in order to avoid permanent damage to muscle tissue and untreatable impotence.
