Spedra is one of the newest and lesser-known treatments for erectile dysfunction. It contains the active ingredient Avanafil and is available in 50mg, 100mg and 200mg strengths.
It is a PDE5 inhibitor, which is the same class of medicine as the more well known ED treatments, Viagra and Cialis. While not as well known, Spedra is the fastest acting erectile dysfunction medication taking 15 to 30 minutes to work.
How does Spedra work?
It works by increasing blood flow into the erectile tissue of the penis. This improves men’s ability to get an erection. It does not have an impact on libido, only your ability to get and maintain an erection when sexually aroused. Generally, the amount of sexual stimulation to gain and maintain an erection is lowered.
Is Spedra effective?
About 60-70% of men gain a firmer and longer-lasting erection. If the treatment does not work, ask our doctors (or your own GP), whether it would be appropriate to increase the dose. Alternatively, they may recommend another treatment.
It may not work for you on your first doses. This is normal. Doctors recommend trying the treatment up to 8 times before seeking out an alternative treatment.
