By now we have all heard about Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, three of the most popular impotence medications on the market accounting for the largest percentage in terms of sales of erectile dysfunction treatments.
However, there are a number of other options out there for you, including other ED drugs, both branded and general, as well as natural treatments and various procedures that can help with the problem.
Here we will discuss the newest impotence treatments on the market today, some of which are already on the market and are available, others of which are yet to be introduced, pending additional research or approval.
Take a look at all of them before making your decision as to which is right for you. In some cases, a simple supplement can provide the solution you need. In other cases, you may need to take one of the ED medications or undergo a procedure.
Each case is different, and as such different treatment protocols are necessary. If impotence is something that you have been experiencing, regardless of your age, it's important to talk to your doctor about it. He or she will go over all of your options and together you can decide what to try. Remember, erectile dysfunction is treatable...it's just a matter of discovering the right solution.
Newest Erectile Dysfunction Treatments
There is now a new generic version of Viagra called Revatio, which contains the same medication, Sildenafil, just in a smaller dosage. It may be a better, cheaper option for you.
One of the newest drugs to hit the market is called Stendra and it is a direct competitor of Viagra, Levitra and Cialis. It only takes 30 minutes to work, so sexual activity is possible much quicker than it is when you take these other pills. Some have reported an erection in just 15 minutes. That's pretty impressive.
Another relatively new way to treat impotence is with DHEA supplements, although there is very little research supporting the claim that they can boost testosterone levels and therefore combat erectile dysfunction.
A new topical solution called Androgel delivers testosterone to the body via a patch worn on the skin. However there are some potential side effects to contend with.
Not yet approved by the FDA, Topiglan gel is a topical ED medication that you apply directly. It may offer a viable option for men aren't able to take pills or haven't been successful with them.
A dissolvable version of the popular medication Levitra, Staxyn impotence tablets are placed on the tongue rather than swallowed, which may speed up reaction time to as quickly as 15 minutes in some cases.
Available either as an over the counter supplement or as a prescription, Yohimbe Extract may boost libido as well as promote blood flow to the penis and combat impotence.
Another one of the more recent treatment options is called testosterone replacement therapy. This is a potential solution when low testosterone levels are a cause of impotence and other noticeable symptoms.
With various applications including pain, arthritis and injury repair, PRP therapy for ED is gaining in popularity. It involves a non-invasive procedure during which plasma rich platelets are injected into the area, stimulating new tissue growth.
One of the most promising procedures on the horizon is something called gene therapy for impotence. What this entails is taking new, healthy genes and replacing the non-functioning ones within the penis, enabling a sustained erection to occur. The best part is it lasts up to six months, so for those men that aren't squeamish, this could be a viable option.
Another potential treatment for ED is called vascular reconstructive surgery which entails a surgical procedure to manipulate blood vessels and facilitate blood flow to the area.
Although far from a new treatment option, as it has been around for centuries, acupuncture for treating impotence is relatively new to the Western world. It can be an effective option, especially for those who don't want to try or haven't had success with erectile dysfunction medications.
One of the latest treatment options is something called shockwave therapy for ED which involves passing acoustic waves to stimulate blood vessels and potentiate growth. This is unique in that it could potentially cure those with particular types of impotence. (Gainswave is a popular protocol that involves shockwave therapy)
There is also a new heat-activated penile implant being developed, which may offer a safer, easier to use option for those who need to go this route. It is however a few years away at the least.
Another new treatment option still being developed is stem cell therapy. In a small study involving injection into the corpus cavernosum some very positive results were achieved. More testing is needed however to determine efficacy.
So these are some of the newest impotence treatments currently available and on the horizon. Follow the links above for more information on each option. As new information comes out we will update this page as well as the individual pages so you'll know the latest scoop on each medication, supplement and procedure.
