Approved by the FDA in April of 2012, Stendra® (avanafil) is the newest medication available for treating erectile dysfunction (ED).
Stendra is a selective PDE-5 inhibitor, meaning it acts by inhibiting the enzyme PDE-5, which is associated with ED. It has been shown to be faster-acting in the way it works than older medications like sildenafil (sold under the brand name Viagra®), tadalafil (sold under the brand name Cialis®) and vardenafil (sold under the brand name Levitra®).
Overall, Stendra is an option if you’re looking for a newer, faster-acting brand name ED drug.
Stendra is a prescription medication, meaning you’ll need to talk to a healthcare professional and get a prescription before you can buy and use it. We offer Stendra online, subject to approval after an online consultation with a healthcare professional, with discreet delivery to your door.
Because Stendra is a newer medication than Viagra, it’s not yet available for sale as a generic drug. This means that the price of Stendra is higher than sildenafil, the generic form of Viagra.
If ordered through hims and billed quarterly, Stendra costs $116 per month, with each month’s supply including four pills containing 100mg of avanafil. This is the typical, recommended starting dose of Stendra for treating erectile dysfunction.
In comparison, a typical one-month supply of generic sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, ordered through hims starts at $24 per month and includes four pills, billed quarterly. Like Stendra, we offer sildenafil online, subject to approval after an online consultation with a healthcare professional.
While Stendra has a higher price than generic versions of the older ED medications, it does offer some benefits. Robust clinical trial data of Stendra has shown that:
At $175 per month ($35 per pill) through hims, Stendra is more expensive than generic versions of older ED medications such as sildenafil. However, it has numerous advantages that may make it a good option for you.
As the newest medication approved by the FDA to treat ED, Stendra offers many benefits, like a quick onset of action and long-lasting effects. Our Stendra 101 guide goes into more detail on how Stendra works, how you can use it and what to expect when you take it.
