When it comes to the successful treatment of erectile dysfunction, or ED, there are currently only a few oral medications that have received FDA approval and Viagra and Cialis are two of the most popular. Although these drugs work in a similar fashion on the body to allow the return of normal sexual function, there are some key differences in these medications which are important to understand before choosing either treatment.
Both medications affect the development of an erection in very similar ways, by allowing a more generous blood flow to enter the penis. Then, in response to sexual stimulation, the penis will properly fill with blood and become erect. The mechanics of these medications make them uniquely suited to the treatment of ED, because they can be effective whether the causes are physical or psychological.fda approval, intimate activity, natural spontaneity, oral medications, sexual intimacy
This drug has a long history, beginning with it being approved in 1959 by the FDA prior to the introduction of the clinical trials that are now the current requirement. By 2000, it had become the second most commonly prescribed muscle relaxant. In 2006, more than 10 million prescriptions were written. This would suggest the drug is well-regarded by doctors and used under their supervision in hospitals and other clinical surroundings. But this is not the case. Because it is freely available as a generic drug and so cheap, it is rapidly becoming a drug of abuse and sixteen US states have now reclassified it as a schedule IV controlled substance.
There are currently no medical protocols in place for dealing with addiction and the inevitable withdrawal symptoms, unlike many of the other drugs that have been abused for decades, which makes this a potentially dangerous development. Why has it taken so long for the level of abuse to rise? In part, it is because the effect of the drug is as a tranquilizer or sedative at higher dosages. Fifty years ago, people preferred their recreation to involve excitement rather than sleep. Indeed, if you look at the information given out by the manufacturer today, you will see drowsiness given as a common side effect.drug enforcement agency, medical benefit, medical protocols, schedule iv controlled substance, world health organization
We need to be very clear that Propecia, also sold under the name Finasteride, is used to treat two very different problems. The first is to slow the development of benign growths in the prostate. The second is the slowing of hair loss. You will understand that the first use was well established before the side effect was noticed. When Merck & Co realized the same drug might prevent hair loss in healthy men, it began full-scale clinical trials and gained FDA approval for this use. As a result, this drug has become one of the steady earning drugs for the manufacturer as men rely on the treatment to retain a full head of hair. However, in this history lies the same reality. This drug is actually designed to affect the prostate and, by implication, the surrounding areas including all the sexual apparatus. There always has been some level of interference with both the general level of interest in sex and the functional side of generating and maintaining an erection, ejaculation, sperm count, and so on.
