How does the medication work?
Medications to treat ED work by widening blood vessels, increasing blood flow to the penis when stimulated. This increases your chance of achieving and maintaining a full erection.
What are the common side effects?
Since the medication also causes blood flow to the rest of the body, you may experience common side effects like:
- 💆🏼♀️ Headaches
- 💧Nasal congestion
- ⬅️ Back or muscle aches
- ❤️🔥 Facial flushing
- 🤢 Stomach discomfort
What can I do to reduce the chance of side effects?
These side effects are usually mild and subside as the medication wears off, but can be reduced & managed at home using tips that can be found in your practitioner letter or the “Help” section on your patient profile.

**Please note that medications to treat ED will only help you maintain an erection when there is sexual stimulation. It will not cause erections if there is no sexual stimulation.**
🚨 If you are experiencing any prolonged and painful erection that lasts longer than 4 hours, chest pain, a prolonged increased heart rate, sudden decrease or loss of hearing or visual disturbances, please call 000 or visit your local Emergency Department for immediate medical assistance. 🚨
