7 Common Side Effects of Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Pills
Erectile Dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, can completely annihilate your sex life. Erectile Dysfunction is a common symptom of aging in men. ED is caused when damaged nerves can no longer transport blood to the penis. The most popular Erectile Dysfunction treatment pills are Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra. These prescription medications treat ED by inhibiting a specific enzyme to enhance nitric oxide causing an increase in blood flow to the penis. While Erectile Dysfunction treatment pills can almost instantly reverse ED, this temporary solution has side effects, often referred to as adverse systemic reactions. This is when other parts of the body are affected by a treatment program meant to cure a specific ailment, which is typical with pills that are ingested and absorbed into the bloodstream. The systemic reactions listed below rarely, almost never occur with localized erectile dysfunction treatments like those offered at NuMale Medical Center.
1.Headaches and Migraines
Headaches and migraines are the most common systemic reactions to erectile dysfunction treatment pills. As stated earlier, these pills help increase blood flow to the penis, however, the sudden increase in blood flow can cause mild to severe headaches.
2.Muscle Aches and Body Pains
Muscle Aches and Body Pains are also common systemic reactions to erectile dysfunction treatment pills. While some patients report general body pain, others report pain in specific areas, primarily in the lower back.
Erectile Dysfunction treatment pills are known to cause digestive disorders like diarrhea and indigestion. Even though OTC (over-the-counter) medications can temporarily alleviate these symptoms, they are very uncomfortable and can cause more harm in the long run.
4.Dizziness and Lightheadedness
Common side effects of the main ingredient in Erectile Dysfunction treatment pills are dizziness and lightheadedness. Mild dizziness can negatively impact daily activities, while severe dizziness and lightheadedness can cause fainting and other health problems.
Erectile Dysfunction treatment pills can affect vision. This can range from temporary blur and color blindness to complete loss of vision. This is the reason ED treatment pills are not recommended for patients with retinal disease.
6.Skin Flushing and Redness
Another common systemic reaction to Erectile Dysfunction treatment pills is skin flushing which in turn causes redness. This is often first visible on the face, but can become noticeable on other parts of the body based on its severity.
Nasal congestion and runny nose are unexpected systemic reactions to Erectile Dysfunction treatment pills. These symptoms are typically mild and can deescalate without medical treatment.
Why Localized ED Treatment is Safer
Other uncommon side effects of Erectile Dysfunction treatment pills are hearing loss and an erection lasting more than 4 hours. The great news is ED can be treated without the use of pills. NuMale Medical Center offers a therapeutic treatment program that does NOT produce the systemic reactions listed above. This means that unlike pills, you do not build a tolerance and you do not need to increase your dosage at treatment progresses. In fact most patient reduce their dosage over time as their function improves. NuMale’s treatment heals the tissue and builds the muscle by increasing blood flow, causing you to gradually develop and maintain erections on your own. As with any medical treatment, there are potential side effects, but they are few and far between because the treatment program is customized for each patient.
