Regain Confidence and Vitality

Dealing with erectile dysfunction (ED) can negatively impact self-esteem, relationships, and quality of life. However, today’s ED treatments offer various options to help men regain confidence in the bedroom. At City Dock Pharmacy, our knowledgeable pharmacists can not only provide ED medications like Viagra but also offer advice and prescribe treatments to restore function.

What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction has many potential causes, both physiological and psychological, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Clogged blood vessels (atherosclerosis)
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes and insulin resistance
  • Obesity and metabolic syndrome
  • Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis
  • Peyronie’s disease
  • Smoking and alcohol use
  • Stress, anxiety and depression
  • Low testosterone
  • Some medications like SSRIs, blood pressure drugs

Getting to the root of the problem is key. Our pharmacist can help identify any health conditions or medications that may be contributing factors. Even when ED is physiologically-based, mental health and emotional factors often accompany it.

Current Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Options

Today’s ED treatments provide varied solutions to fit different needs:

  • Phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors like sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis) and vardenafil (Levitra) can improve blood flow for firmer, longer-lasting erections when sexually aroused. Our pharmacists can prescribe appropriate dosing and use instructions.
  • Penile injection therapy involves injecting medication directly into the penis to stimulate blood flow and cause an erection. This option may be appropriate for men who do not respond sufficiently to oral ED medications.
  • Testosterone replacement therapy can help raise low testosterone levels that may be impacting erectile function. Testosterone gels, patches, pellets or injections may increase libido and improve ED, especially for men with hypogonadism.
  • Vacuum erection devices use a pump to draw blood into the penis and a constriction ring to keep blood trapped to maintain an erection. A non-drug option.
