Frequently asked questions about stendra

What is Stendra?
Stendra is the brand name of a medication called avanafil, which was approved by the FDA for treatment of erectile dysfunction in 2012. It is the newest erectile dysfunction medication on the market, and can be taken as early as 15 minutes before sexual activity. It also has a favorable side effects profile, with the most common side effects including headaches, flushing, runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, and back pain.
Stendra, similar to other ED medications like Viagra® and Cialis®, inhibits the work of an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5 to improve blood flow to the penis during sexual stimulation. Stendra has been shown to work in as little as 15 minutes. Some men may find that this helps them to have a more spontaneous sex life.
Where can I get Stendra?
Stendra is only available by prescription in the United States. As such, Stendra cannot legally be sold over-the-counter here.
To get Stendra, consult with a medical provider through our platform to see if Stendra or another ED medication could be right for you. If prescribed, you’ll receive your medication shipment directly to your door in discreet packaging.
How long does Stendra last?
Stendra can work for up to six hours, which means that Stendra lasts about as long as Viagra (sildenafil) and starts working faster than Viagra. The half-life of Stendra is 3-5 hours, so the effects of the medication may be noticeably reduced after several hours.
What are the available doses of Stendra?
Stendra is available in three dosages: 50mg, 100mg and 200mg. The 100mg dose is the typical recommended starting dosage for most men. For men with mild erectile dysfunction or who experience side effects with the 100mg dose, your provider may recommend the lowest 50mg dose. If the 100mg dose is not effective for treating your erectile dysfunction, your doctor can prescribe the highest 200mg dosage of Stendra. It is generally recommended that men take the lowest dose that works for them.
It is important to always follow medical advice concerning your Stendra dosage. Even though a 200mg dose is available, you should never take two 100mg pills unless directed to by your healthcare provider. This is because higher doses are more likely to cause both common and serious side effects.
Is Stendra safe?
Stendra was shown in clinical studies to be generally safe for most men experiencing erectile dysfunction. However, for some men with underlying medical conditions, Stendra may pose some risks.
If you have had a stroke or heart problems such as a heart attack, irregular heartbeat, angina, chest pain, heart disease, heart failure, or have had heart surgery within the last 6 months, tell your doctor. Additionally, you may be at higher risk for problems with Stendra if you have pulmonary hypertension, low blood pressure, uncontrolled high blood pressure, a deformed penis shape or Peyronie’s Disease, an erection that lasted for more than 4 hours, sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, leukemia, retinitis pigmentosa, severe vision loss (NAION), bleeding problems, stomach ulcers, liver problems, kidney problems or are having dialysis. Discuss any pre-existing medical conditions with your provider prior to starting Stendra.
What are the side effects of Stendra?
Common side effects of Stendra include headaches, facial flushing, nasal congestion, sore throat, and back pain. Some less common side effects include lower and upper respiratory infections, hypertension, indigestion, nausea, constipation, skin rash, dizziness, joint pain and diarrhea. These side effects are generally not dangerous, but you should tell your doctor if they do not go away or are particularly bothersome.
There are some rare, serious side effects associated with Stendra, including vision problems, loss of hearing and priapism (an erection lasting longer than four hours). If you experience any of these serious side effects, get medical help immediately.
Can I take Stendra with my other medications?
There are some over-the-counter and prescription drugs that are contraindicated for Stendra, which means they should not be taken at the same time or a serious reaction could occur. In particular, medications that are used to treat high blood pressure may interact with Stendra to cause a serious drop in blood pressure. Some of these medications include nitrates, such as nitroglycerin, and alpha-blockers such as terazosin, tamsulosin, doxazosin mesylate, prazosin, alfuzosin, dutasteride or silodosin.
Medicines used to treat pulmonary hypertension (guanylate cyclase stimulators), chest pain and HIV (protease inhibitors) may interact with Stendra, as well as some antifungal and antibiotic medications. Some of these medications include amyl nitrite (poppers), riociguat (Adempas), ritonavir (Norvir), indinavir sulfate (Crixivan), atazanavir sulfate (Reyataz), saquinavir (Fortovase or Invirase), ketoconazole (Nizoral), itraconazole (Sporanox), clarithromycin (Biaxin), telithromycin (Ketek), or erythromycin. Tell your doctor about any medications that you take to ensure that you can take Stendra without risking any negative drug interactions.
What is better: Stendra or Viagra?
Stendra and Viagra are both effective, FDA approved erectile dysfunction treatments that are taken as-needed. The biggest difference between the two is how quickly the medication works: Viagra takes 30-60 minutes to start working while Stendra can start working in as little as 15 minutes. Viagra has over two decades of use by real men with erectile dysfunction, while Stendra is newer, so there is less real world evidence around the use of Stendra. Stendra was shown in clinical studies to have a lower rate of side effects. If you are unsure which medication is best for you, consult with a healthcare provider through our platform for medical advice about how to treat your ED.
