New Viagra- Avanafil, is it Better?

By: Dr. Gary Bellman on February 25, 2013, 12:49 pm

Vivus has a new E.D. pill launched called Avanafil, which is supposed to have a quicker onset of action. Viagra and Levitra need to be taken 1-2 hours before sexual activity for maximum affect. Some men find it difficult to remember to take if not convenient.

Alternatively, some men take Cialis daily, not having to worry about the ‘timing’.  A product called stain is also available, which is a quicker absorbing Levitra. Many men respond to these medications while unfortunately others don’t. Time will tell where avanafil falls into niche.
