Health Hazards of Using Allopathic Medicines for ED
Most allopathic drugs create an erection by relaxing the smooth muscles and widening the blood vessels in the penis.
While these medicines do produce penile erections for the time being, there are a number of drawbacks associated with their long term use such as:
Temporary effect: Most of these medicines such as Viagra and Levitra work to enhance erection only temporarily and for short term. In most cases, erection produced by these
High costs: Compared to natural or herbal medicines, most of these pharmaceutical drugs or allopathic medicines are highly expensive even if used for short term.
Low safety profile: One of the biggest disadvantages associated with the continued use of allopathic drugs is an increased risk of highly serious side effects such as heart failure, dependency, high blood pressure, palpitations, increased heart rate (pulse) and a variety of other consequences. Also, people with heart problem or angina cannot use these medicines because of the same risk.
How soon allopathic drugs produce erection?
This depends on a number of factors including: one’s general health, current physical status, whether the proper dosage was properly taken and the presence of other stimulation. Erections generally appear in 30 minutes to 1 hour and on average last about 30 minutes to few hours.
Therefore, while using allopathic medicines for the treatment of ED may offer benefit of easy consistency of dosage and fast speed, they do have their own grave disadvantages, including an increase in side effects, high costs and only “temporary” solution to the problem. In fact, in some cases, these side effects have proved fatal such as those seen in the cases of liver toxicity, heart attack and stroke.
Why natural or herbal supplements are considered more effective and safe?
In many cases, credible and quality herbal therapies or supplements can succeed where pharmaceutical drugs have failed. Despite frequent reports that they are ‘unproven’ and ‘untested’, the opposite is true. Natural medicines have a long history of usage and there is a wealth of empirical evidence to support their effectiveness and safety. In addition, active clinical research is carried out by many academic hospitals and universities to support the extensive traditional and empirical evidence behind natural medicines.
