Sildenafil is the most well known treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) and a popular choice because it is highly effective. Many clinical studies have shown that it can improve the quality of life for both patients and their sexual partners. In order to test the safety of this medicine, placebo-controlled studies have taken place since sildenafil was released.
These studies have shown that the discontinuation rate due to adverse effects is 2.5% for sildenafil and 2.3% for placebo. Placebo is an inactive substance that is used to compare the side effects to sildenafil side effects. This statistic reveals the high safety profile of sildenafil. Common side effects are known to be mild to moderate and they tend to pass quickly.When sildenafil is taken as recommended, the following side effects may occur:
• Headache – affects 16 percent of people
• Flushing – affects 10 percent of people
• Indigestion – affects 7 percent of people
• Nasal congestion – affects 4 percent of people
Some patients find that a lower dose of 50mg provides the desired effects with less chance of a headache. Sildenafil can cause mild dehydration which can lead to a headache so drinking more water than usual can help prevent this. Sildenafil side effects like indigestion can be treated with an antacid like sodium bicarbonate.
• Avoid medicines called nitrates or nitric oxide donors like amyl nitrite.
• Guanylate cyclase stimulators like riociguat should also be avoided.
• The use of other local or oral treatments for ED is not recommended.
• Grapefruit juice should be avoided as it can increase the likelihood of adverse effects.
