Surgery provides the only true cure, but men typically want to explore other, less invasive options first.
If you miss a dose of Revatio, take the medicine as soon as you can, but skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next dose. Do not take two doses at one time.
ED is mainly treated using oral drugs, surgery, vacuum pumps, and implants. Popular ED medication includes Viagra, Levitra and Cialis. These drugs work by increasing blood flow to the penis.

Natural remedies that can aid with erectile dysfunction (ED) involve simple lifestyle changes that work to improve one’s overall physical and emotional well-being.
Professor Vlachopoulos concluded: “Our study shows that high blood pressure can be treated without causing erectile dysfunction. Patients and doctors need to have open discussions to find the best treatment option.”
Surgical implantation of a penile prosthesis is the most invasive option. It is typically reserved for men who have failed, are not candidates for, or cannot tolerate nonsurgical therapies.7
Erectile dysfunction is a common side effect for many prescription drugs, such as:
This is why a healthy circulatory system is key to maintaining penile health. In addition, stress causes nerve endings to be less receptive to incoming signals, making erection difficult.
At single oral doses of 100 mg and 200 mg, transient dose-related impairment of color discrimination was detected using the Farnsworth-Munsell 100-hue test, with peak effects near the time of peak plasma levels. This finding is consistent with the inhibition of PDE6, which is involved in phototransduction in the retina. Subjects in the study reported this finding as difficulties in discriminating blue/green. An evaluation of visual function at doses up to twice the maximum recommended dose revealed no effects of VIAGRA on visual acuity, intraocular pressure, or pupillometry.
VIAGRA is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to sildenafil, as contained in VIAGRA and REVATIO, or any component of the tablet. Hypersensitivity reactions have been reported, including rash and urticaria [see ADVERSE REACTIONS].
High blood pressure can narrow your blood vessels, lessening blood flow through your body. If less flows to your penis you may find it's not so easy to get an erection. If you don't check your blood pressure regularly, it's time to start. You may have high blood pressure and not even know it.

On the other hand, Geo Espinosa, director of the Integrative Urological Center at NYU Langone Medical Center, says there are some natural alternatives to popular ED medicines. Take them with your doctor’s OK, and they can help you get and keep an erection.
A review of population subgroups demonstrated efficacy regardless of baseline severity, etiology, race and age. VIAGRA was effective in a broad range of ED patients, including those with a history of coronary artery disease, hypertension, other cardiac disease, peripheral vascular disease, diabetes mellitus, depression, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), radical prostatectomy, transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and spinal cord injury, and in patients taking antidepressants/antipsychotics and anti-hypertensives/diuretics.
Antioxidants in berries help nitric oxide last longer in the bloodstream, which is where the pomegranate myth began. However, there is no scientific proof that drinking this antioxidant-rich juice can actually help with erections. “Of course, it’s better to drink a glass of pomegranate juice than a soda, but it won’t help” with ED, Nelson says.
