Prior to the launch of the revolutionary impotence pill Viagra in 1998, other non-drug impotence treatments were the only option available to you. Some have fallen out of favor...others still exist today and can be a viable option if pills and supplements just don't work for you.

In the same way that Prozac® brought the treatment of depression out into the open, Viagra has helped over 150 million men with impotence resume an active sex life. It has brought male impotence out into the open and made it acceptable for men with impotence to seek treatment.

Men who take medications containing nitrates to treat angina or high blood pressure are unable to take Viagra or any of the similar newer medications because of possible severe chemical reactions.
Another example is diabetic impotence. Up to 60% of men with diabetes experience chronic impotence by the age of 55. Long-term diabetes affects the blood vessels and nerve-endings, particularly at the body's extremities.
Because of the resulting damage to blood vessels and nerve-endings in diabetics, one of the most effective solutions is penile implants.

Keep in mind that any market where there is high demand, opportunities for exploitation and misrepresentation are always present. The male impotence market is no exception.
Remedies that promise to increase virility, cure impotence and increase penis size, all in one "easy to swallow tablet" in all probability won't do any of those things.

"Unfortunately, the vulnerability of [men with impotence] leaves them easy targets for con artists and snake-oil salesmen."
