Erectile Dysfunction (Impotence)

Male impotence (Erectile Dysfunction) is extremely common, yet very few men seek treatment. This confidential service aims to make it as convenient as possible for men to manage their impotence using one of three oral treatments - Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. We offer expert care without the inconvenience or embarrassment of having to visit your doctor and the medicines are sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery to a delivery address of your choice.

Doctor Consultation

Our online doctors offer an online assessment to see whether you are likely to benefit from a trial course of treatment. If our doctors think you could benefit from a trial course of oral Erectile Dysfunction medicines, four or eight tablets of Viagra, Cialis or Levitra will be made available for you to trial. We suggest you trial four tablets first, so that you can decide yourself which medicine suits you best.

Ongoing treatment with Viagra, Cialis and Levitra

If the initial trial is successful, you can return to the website and order further supplies of your medicine. On an ongoing basis our doctors can prescribe up to 16 tablets at a time.

Delivery options for the medicines your order

We post using Royal Mail Recorded or Special Delivery throughout the UK to your chosen address. If your order is rejected, we will give you a full refund.

Doctor support & Advice

Our doctors will be available for aftercare if you need.

If the trial is not successful our doctors may be able to offer you a higher dose of the same medicine or a further trial course of one of the other two impotence medicines.

Investigating underlying causes

We hope that by helping you manage your impotence you will follow our doctors' advice and investigate the potential underlying causes. Impotence is often a first sign of underlying problems and as part of this service our doctors will tell you what follow-up investigative tests you should consider.

  About the condition


Erectile Dysfunction


First, let’s define the problem. ED means an inability to get a good enough erection to achieve satisfactory intercourse.

Some sufferers can’t get a hard-on at all; others get one but it isn’t firm enough to penetrate the partner; and others can manage penetration for a bit, but then lose it.

Why does ED occur?

ED is very common, and it occurs for a variety of reasons and at different ages.

Teenagers and young men
In younger males, the most frequent cause is anxiety – particularly nervousness about having sex, about causing a pregnancy, or about using a condom. A lot of men in this age group complain that they ‘can’t get on with a condom’ because as soon as they try to put it on, they lose their ‘stiffy'.

Middle age
Common causes in this age group are overwork, stress, guilt and bereavement (ED often happens when a widowed man tries to form a new sexual relationship). A few cases are due to diabetes.

Post-middle age
In this group of men, ED gets commoner with increasing age. Nonetheless, 70 per cent of all 70-year-olds are sexually potent.

It is now clear that in a very high proportion of cases, the problem is due to deterioration in the blood vessels that carry blood into the penis. Research which was carried out in 2007 suggests that in addition there may often be deterioration in the arteries of the brain or the heart.

In October 2008, leading sex expert Dr Geoffrey Hackett said in the British Medical Journal, ‘Erectile Dysfunction is the manifestation of vascular disease in smaller arteries, and can give a two to three year early warning of heart attack.’

Therefore older men with ED should take care to protect themselves against strokes and heart attacks – for example by keeping their blood pressure and cholesterol down.

You may be surprised to see that I have not listed ‘lack of hormones’ as a common cause of ED. In fact, lack of male hormone is pretty rare. However, it can occur particularly after severe injuries to the testicles, or to the base of the brain.

If you are tempted to go to one of the many private clinics that make a habit of diagnosing ‘male hormone deficiency', and then charging huge sums of money for testosterone treatment, I suggest you think twice!

The Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

About 8 in 10 cases of ED are due to a physical cause. If the ED is due to a physical cause, you are likely still to have a normal sex drive (libido). Causes include:

What physical causes are there?
Common physical causes include:
          * deterioration of the arteries – this is a physical change which is common in older men, including those with high blood pressure
          * diabetes
          * smoking
          * excessive drinking (hence the phrase ‘Brewer’s droop’)
          * being obese and out-of-condition
          * side-effects of certain drugs, notably ones for blood pressure and depression
          * effects of recreational drugs, like cocaine.

Less common physical causes include:
          * excessive drainage of blood from the veins of the penis (‘venous leak’)
          * diseases of the nervous system
          * injury to the spinal cord or brain
          * major surgery in the abdomen, particularly prostate operations
          * hormone problems, including excess production of a pituitary hormone called prolactin (this is rare).

Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction

Viagra (sildenafil)

Widens the bloods vessels, so giving an erection – provided there is some sexual stimulation. In most men, works within an hour. Effect lasts for about four hours. (This doesn't mean the erection lasts for four hours, rather that an erection can be produced for up to four hours after taking a tablet.) Easily blocked by food in the stomach.

Viagra still remains the world’s most popular ED drug. At the Vienna International Sexology conference of December 2006 which we attended, it was claimed that its continuing popularity is due to the ‘hardness‘ of the erections it produces. However, we are not convinced that it gives greater hardness than the other two drugs.

The most common side effects are headache, visual disturbances, blocked nose, flushed face, indigestion, palpitations – and dizziness after getting out of bed too quickly! Blue vision occurs at higher doses. Viagra is very dangerous with certain heart drugs. It interacts with many medications. Do not drink grapefruit juice on the day of use, because that pushes up the blood level of the drug.

In April 2005, a report from the University of Minnesota suggested that a small group of men have suffered blindness as a result of Viagra use. It was claimed that the drug may rarely cause a serious eye condition called ‘non-arteritic ischaemic optic atrophy.’ In 2008, it is apparent that a very small number of British men have suffered similar eye problems. If you are taking Viagra, you should ask your doctor to keep you informed of any further research on this development.

Cialis (tadalafil)

Works in the same way as Viagra. Now popular with a lot of men, because its effects last so long – at least 12 hours in most cases, which means sex can be more spontaneous. Manufacturers claim it is not blocked by food.

Side effects are similar to those of Viagra, but it can also cause back pain and muscle pain. Interactions with other drugs and with grapefruit juice are similar to those of Viagra, but also clashes with the antibiotic clarithromycin and the sedative phenobarbital. Cialis is very similar in structure to Viagra and there have been several reports of blindness occurring while on it.

Levitra (vardenafil)

Works in same way. Side effects and interactions are similar to those of Viagra. Not as long-lasting as Cialis. There have been a few reports of blindness.

Investigating Erectile Dysfunction

You should tell your regular doctor (GP) if you are having problems with erections, you doctor will help through some simple tests. If symptoms develop over a period of weeks or months, or even suddenly, without an emotional event to set them off, please see your regular doctor. Erectile Dysfunction can be a complication of previous operations or a side effect of medicines.



 
  About the Medicine

About the treatment


Over the last decade newer medicine has revolutionised the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction. These medicines work by enhancing the natural reaction to stimulation, opening up the blood flow needed for erections. Other treatments for Erectile Dysfunction include injections into the penis, surgical devices and counselling, for more information, speak to your GP.

Types of treatment provided: Viagra, Cialis & Levitra

We carry out consultations for three different medicines for the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction:

* Viagra (25mg, 50mg, 100mg)
* Cialis (2.5mg, 5mg, 10mg, 20mg)
* Levitra (5mg, 10mg, 20mg)

They each work for different lengths of time and have slightly different side effects. See comparisons and differences between Viagra, Cialis and Levitra below.

Starting treatment

We recommend starting with a lower strength tablet and build up as needed. One type of tablet sometimes works better than another. You may like to try out different tablets to see which ones suit you best one by one.

You can request more than one type of tablet at a time but we recommend buying one at a time and trying it first. Please buy the lowest dose to start with if you are trying it for the first time.

Dosage

1. Cialis 10mg and 20mg tablets are intended for use on an 'as needed' basis. With these strength tablets the dose should be taken at least 30 minutes before intended sex.

2. Viagra - The dose should be taken approximately one hour before you intend to have sex.

3. Levitra - This means that sexual stimulation is required for it to produce and maintain an erection. The dose should be taken approximately 25 minutes to one hour before intended intercourse, and it may produce an erection in response to sexual stimulation up to five hours after taking the dose.

Counselling

Erectile Dysfunction is distressing and leads to relationship difficulties, anxiety and depression. In some cases a problem of performance anxiety can be overcome by breaking the cycle of failure with tablet treatments and your doctor will be able to help with appropriate counselling to tackle the issue.
