Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Advice

Not used erectile dysfunction medicines before?  Don’t worry, there are lots of treatments to choose from eg Sildenafil, Viagra, Cialis but always start with a low dose and build up according to effect.  Unfortunately with Erectile Dysfunction treatments the higher the dose the greater the risk of side effects.

It is worth noting that all Erectile Dysfunction treatments require sexual stimulation in order for an erection to be obtained.  

In the expandable text below you will find information on all the common Erectile Dysfunction drugs available at Travelpharm and a handy table summarising side effects, available strengths and dose.
