Cialis (Tadalafil) was approved by FDA to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate in men. This gives hope for men who experience both conditions ED and BPH and thus can receive an effective treatment taking one medication.
Uncomfortable BPH symptoms such as difficulty urinating, an unexpected necessity to urinate or increased urination at night make a life of men with this condition very unpleasant.
Tadalafil was studied in men with enlarged prostate who received 5 mg dose of the medication once daily. The three trials have shown a meaningful decrease in BPH symptoms. The last trial was conducted in patients who have both conditions BPH and ED.
Now doctors may prescribe only one approved medication to fight both conditions effectively. Cialis should not be taken together with nitrates and medications lowering blood pressure such as alpha blockers. Before taking Cialis a man should consult a doctor.
Before oral ED prescription erectile dysfunction medications became available, general practitioners frequently prescribed yohimbine hydrochloride to the patients having erectile problems. Some of the doctors doubt that medication can be so effective in the treatment of ED in men.
Yohimbe is a plant containing many active chemicals used in pharmacology. It is highly advertised as a component of natural products for body enhancement and improvement of sexual function.
Yohimbe contains an alkaloid – yohimbine, a chemical that causes vasodilation, and thus lowers blood pressure. Yohimbine has a prominent stimulating and aphrodisiac effect.
Yohimbine is a prescription medication in the United States and approved by FDA with a purpose to be used as a dietary supplements in a form of herbal extract and medicine.
The medication may cause easily recognized adverse reactions especially from the nervous system including anxiety attacks and nervousness.
Yohimbe should be taken only with a doctor’s prescriptions who will determine the right dose of the drug. The medication may be toxic if taken in larger doses, so it is absolutely necessary to take correct dose prescribed by your doctor. Certain patients are not recommended to use this medication. Patients with low blood pressure, diabetes, heart, liver or kidney disease should not take Yohimbe because they may experience serious side effects of the drug.
Arginine is a natural booster of nitric oxide which is produced in the human body and essential for erection process to occur. The amino acid L-arginine is naturally produced by human organism, and received from such foods as cheese, milk, beef, pork, poultry, fish, wheat, nuts and vegetables.
People having poor nutrition or certain medical conditions are recommended to choose foods rich in arginine.
There were different researches devoted to L-arginine’s effectiveness against erectile dysfunction have produced ambivalent outcomes. A trial conducted in 1999 proposed that L-arginine in high doses can enhance sexual function, but only in patients with atypical metabolism of nitric oxide which is usually related to cardiovascular disease.
The study conducted by Bulgarian scientists in 2003 demonstrated that males with ED who received L-arginine in combination with the pine extract pycnogenol had significant progress in sexual function with no adverse reactions.
Arginine can be profitable in the treatment of ED, but it should be administered only by a medical professional because it can interact with certain medications.
For some men experts recommend trying natural solutions for ED treatment. The most popular natural therapies include: ginseng, acupuncture, and pomegranate juice.
Acupuncture, ginseng and pomegranate juice are used as alternative more safe treatments for ED, but are they as effective as it is often advertised?
There is no any scientific evidence to verify the efficacy of natural therapies for impotence. Many of the natural therapies studies were small or poorly organized to prove the effectiveness of the mentioned therapies.
Doctors believe that before ED sufferers start any treatment, it’s better to go to the doctor and find out the underlying medical condition and correct it.
ED is a very common condition which can be caused by different diseases such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, kidney disease, vascular disease, neurological disease, or other serious conditions. ED can also be caused by surgical injury, any trauma to the genital area, certain medications and psychological problems.
Treating ED on your own without consulting a doctor can be very dangerous. If a man has ED, the first thing he needs is a correct diagnosis. Men with severe erectile dysfunction are usually prescribed ED drugs, but if ED is of mild character it can be corrected with natural therapies.
Acupuncture has been practiced to treat male sexual difficulties for centuries. Acupuncture studies give insignificant evidence that this therapy is effective for ED. So it is very hard to say that this treatment method may help in patients with serious underlying conditions and severe ED.
Korean red ginseng has a long history of usage to stimulate and treat male sexual function. However, few studies have tried systematically to support its positive results for impotence. According to one of the studies conducted in 2002 ginseng helped lessen the symptoms of impotence and provided the improvements in penile rigidity. Experts do not know for sure how ginseng acts, but it is considered to boost nitric oxide production. Before taking this herb, a patient should discuss with a doctor because ginseng can interact with many medications or cause allergic reactions.
Rich in antioxidants pomegranate juice demonstrates plentiful health benefits such as a reduced chance for heart disease development and hypertension. Still no verifications exist that pomegranate juice can also protect against ED or treat it.
Some people think that ED is of course a reason to worry about, but it is not dangerous for general health, a person can simply take an ED medication, receive the positive result and forget about the problem.
The doctors, however, say that though ED by itself isn’t a dangerous condition, it can be one of the earliest alarms of other underlying disorders that may be very serious. The most common underlying health conditions are heart diseases, diabetes and atherosclerosis. Erectile dysfunction can also be a symptom of hypertension, nerve (neurological) disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and even hormone imbalances.
So the medical professionals always recommend making the necessary physical examination and telling all the symptoms of your condition to determine if you have erectile dysfunction and other serious medical conditions. A thorough medical examination and tests may help in identifying the cause of ED, find a right treatment, restore your sex life and renew it; in addition, it may also warn a patient to more serious disorders requiring immediate treatment.
For those males who have persistent erectile problems, it is vital to visit a qualified doctor for a complete physical examination and testing.
Remember that having difficulties in attaining erections is not because you lack sexual attraction to your partner, yes, sexual attraction means a lot but usually erectile problems appear due to the following things:
- heart problems, such as high blood pressure and atherosclerosis;
- diabetes about 35% to 50% of diabetics have ED;
- prescription drugs – medications for hypertension, anxiety, depression, baldness and others;
- multiple sclerosis;
- stress, anxiety, fear and depression;
- smoking and drinking alcohol;
- prostate and bladder surgery.
Several studies have manifested that frequent erections and masturbation help prevent erectile dysfunction in men.
The studies goal was to find out if men can reduce their risk for ED by having sex (or masturbating) on a regular basis?
European scientists after the study held in 2008 claimed that infrequent sex can lead to erectile dysfunction and that regular sexual activity can prevent potency problems. Juha Koskimaki, MD, PhD, an urologist at Tampere University Hospital in Tampere, Finland, one of the authors of the study said that masturbation can also help in keeping normal potency.
The study involved 989 men in their 50s, 60s, and 70s and was conducted during five years. It demonstrated that males who reported having sexual activity once a week or less than once a week were twice as likely to develop ED than those who reported having sex more than once a week. The fact is the less frequent the sex, the greater the chance for problems with potency.
Sexual activity in any form (sexual intercourse or masturbation) protects nerve fibers and blood vessels responsible for erectile function thus helping to prolong sexual life in men.
According to other studies frequent erections (with sex or without it) help to preserve male sexual function. If a male has normally several erections each night he will have more chances not to experience ED. So if you want to be sexually active even in your 70, be more sexually active now.

The information in this review appeals to those who wish to keep a healthy lifestyle and live a long and healthy life full of emotions and feelings. Life will not be full if such a great and pleasant part of it as sexual activity is impossible due to some reasons. If you have no problems with potency or if you suffer from ED you should care about your general health to have your sexual life longer and more pleasant.
A great number of studies have proved that keeping general health is the best way to avoid serious diseases and their complications such as erectile dysfunction.
These studies suggest a connection between erectile dysfunction and smoking, excessive alcohol drinking and overeating which leads to obesity. Erectile dysfunction may be prevented of successfully treated if simple rules such as keeping a healthy diet, exercising, spending more time in the open air and having your blood sugar and cholesterol under control are followed.
Overweight males with excess fat in the abdominals have lower male sex hormone levels than men who are not overweight. Men with excess body fat lack testosterone hormones and suffer from ED at higher rates than healthy men.
Start with simple things:
• Eat a healthy low fat diet full of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
• Reduce cholesterol which hardens, narrows, and blocks the arteries in the whole body and particularly in the penis. Make down your cholesterol level through diet, exercise, and medications.
• Try to keep a healthy weight, do not overeat.
• Exercise regularly and be active. The studies have demonstrated that active people rare have problems in sexual life.
• Keep your stress under control, if you are not able to do it yourself, consult your doctor.
• Get rid of smoking and alcohol drinking.
According to the statistics 35%-75% of men suffering from diabetes will face at least some degree of impotence or ED in their days.
Diabetics are inclined to grow erectile dysfunction about 5- 15 years earlier than men without diabetes. As diabetics grow old potency problems become more often. Approximately at the age of 50 the possibility of having erection problems happens to about 50%-60% of men with diabetes. For diabetics in the age of 70, there is about a 95% possibility of obtaining potency dysfunction.
The afflictions of erectile dysfunction in men with diabetes are complicated and involve nerve damage, corruption of blood vessel, and muscle dysfunction.
A normal process of erection requires healthy blood vessels, nerves, male hormones, and a sexual arousal. Diabetes damages the blood vessels and nerves that are responsible for penile erection. Diabetics usually have no problems with sexual desire and have normal hormonal balance still they are not able to achieve a firm erection.
Diabetics having potency problems are usually administered oral therapies for ED treatment. Besides leading a healthy life is necessary to keep the blood sugar under control.
Diabetics are inclined to have heart problems so only a medical professional can evaluate the severity of ED, prescribe oral ED medications and adjust the right dose.
Choosing the best treatment method depends on many factors including a man’s health and individual tolerance to the treatment. Your doctor will help you to fight the diabetes disease and avoid side effects such as impotence. Visit your doctor regularly, follow all his recommendations and keep your blood sugar under control.
