The brain plays a key role in triggering the series of physical events that cause an erection, starting with feelings of sexual excitement. These Include:
“One important danger that men need to know about if they are using ED drugs recreationally is drug dependence.

“There are many lifestyle changes that are erectile dysfunction remedies, but among them, exercise is the ED treatment that can have the greatest impact,” says Zachary R. Mucher, MD, a urologist in Sugar Land, Texas. “Exercise works on several fronts to combat the development of ED and help reverse it once it has become a problem.”
Written documentation from the patient's family doctor was required to ensure that they were not on any nitrate medication, and lipid abnormality and thyroid, renal, hepatic, and haematological disease were excluded by screening blood tests.
Hypertension (high blood pressure) affects more than one billion people worldwide and is the leading cause of premature death.2 A healthy lifestyle is advised, including salt restriction, alcohol moderation, exercise, weight control, and smoking cessation. Most patients also require drug treatment, which is linked to reduced risks of death, stroke, and heart disease – but around half of patients do not take their pills. Sexual dysfunction is one reason why patients stop medication.
The recommended dose for ritonavir-treated patients is 25 mg prior to sexual activity and the recommended maximum dose is 25 mg within a 48 hour period because concomitant administration increased the blood levels of sildenafil by 11-fold [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS, DRUG INTERACTIONS, and CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY].
Branded versions of sildenafil such as Viagra are not available on the NHS, except in special circumstances.

“The progressive decrease in penile blood flow velocity across the three blood pressure categories in men not taking antihypertensive medication indicates significant structural changes in the penile blood vessels from longstanding hypertension,” said study author Professor Charalambos Vlachopoulos of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece. “The blood flow differences across the three blood pressure categories disappeared with treatment, suggesting a medication effect.”
VEDs provide a simple way of obtaining an erection for 30-45 minutes by sucking blood into the penis and holding it in place with a constriction (pictured). Ejaculation may be restricted by the ring but this technique is simple, safe and has no known side-effects. Unfortunately, most patients have to purchase VEDs themselves.

If counseling alone does not help treat the psychological issue, medications through a qualified psychiatrist may be prescribed.
Health care professionals and especially pharmacists should counsel sildenafil users on how and when to use the medication and the common side effects associated with the drug. Users should also be aware of the impact of using sildenafil concomitantly with other illicit drugs and advised to use it when it is only necessary to avoid its addiction and minimize adverse effects. The regulatory body should control the availability of sildenafil and other PDE5Is in places other than pharmacies, monitor the sale of prescription-only medications on an OTC basis, and monitor their utilization.
