What is Stendra and How Does It Compare with Viagra?

Stendra, the most recent addition to the family of oral erectile dysfunction medications known as PDE5 inhibitors, acts more quickly and lasts longer than Viagra. It’s also being touted for allowing greater spontaneity among its users.

Erectile dysfunction affects millions of American men. As the population ages, that number is expected to increase. As ED affects the quality of life of more men, there is an increased need for safe and effective treatments.

Since the introduction of Viagra in 1998, oral phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) inhibitors, which include Cialis and Levitra, have been used to treat ED. All of these drugs work in similar fashion but vary slightly in chemical composition. If if you don’t get a satisfactory result with one, you might find one of the others works better for you or has fewer side effects.

Some men remain unsatisfied with PDE5 inhibitors because of bothersome side effects. Others don’t like the wait time before the drug takes effect or because of lack of potency.

Stendra Acts More Quickly

In answer to the complaints concerning the lack of potency of the earlier introduced PDE5 inhibitors, Stendra, a second-generation member of the PDE5 inhibitor family, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in April 2012. Although it’s similar in chemical composition to Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, Stendra begins working more quickly and lasts longer.

Studies have shown that men taking Stendra were able to get and maintain an erection within 15 minutes of taking the medication, as opposed to 30 to 60 minutes with Viagra. In addition, their ability to get an erection could last up to six hours. This compares to four hours with Viagra.

What this means is that if you get results by taking Viagra, Stendra could give you similar results that begin more quickly and last longer. You no longer have to plan sex 30 to 60 minutes ahead of time, or have to worry about it not lasting as long as you had wished. Your quality of life will improve with the ability to be more spontaneous and sexually active for longer periods.
