Erectile dysfunction(ED), which affects an estimated 18 million men in the US alone, is the inability of a man to maintain a firm erection long enough to have sex.

It is a problem more commonly associated with older men, but it can occur at any age. This problem, if ongoing and left untreated, can cause stress, affect self-esteem and cause relationship problems.

The FDA has approved three drugs namely, Cialis, levitra, and viagra to treat erectile dysfunction. They all work by increasing the flow of blood into the penis so that when a man is sexually stimulated, he can get an erection.

These drugs, though effective in treating ED, must be taken with caution because there are certain situations in which these drugs may not be safe to take. For example if you taking alpha-blockers for blood pressure or prostate problems, the combination of Cialis or Levitra with these drugs can also cause dangerously low blood pressure.

Recently the FDA approved once-daily use of Cialis in a dose of 5 milligrams or a new 2.5-milligram dose for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). In a news release from Eli Lilly and Company, which makes Cialis, the once-daily Cialis "may be most appropriate for men with ED who anticipate more frequent sexual activity (e.g. twice weekly)."

For those who are embarrassed about getting products to help with their ED problem from their doctor, there are online pharmacies, like eDrugstore.MD, that sell genuine FDA approved drugs dispensed by a licensed US pharmacist and for much lower prices.

There is no reason to not do something about your ED problem anymore.
