Our clinic in Toronto, often receives inquiries regarding Stendra.

Stendra (Avanafil) is the newest PDE5 Inhibitor, joining Cialis, Levitra, Staxyn and Viagra as oral medications to treat Erectile Dysfunction. Stendra is approved and available in many countries worldwide.

But don’t go looking for Stendra (Avanafil) at Toronto pharmacies yet. Stendra is awaiting Health Canada approval, and many men in Toronto are hoping to try Stendra  in 2019.

Though all the erectile dysfunction drugs, including Stendra, belong to the same drug class, they are different molecules so there are some differences between them in terms of how quickly they work (onset of action), side effects, and how long the drug effect lasts.

Reports show Stendra works fairly quickly, and lasts up to 6 hours, perhaps longer in some men

Toronto men will be glad to hear that by reports, Stendra (Avanafil) seems to have less signicant annoying side effects.  The Most common side effects of Stendra seem to be flushing, headache, nasal congestion, and runny nose. Less common side effects include back pain, diarrhea, dizziness.

When Stendra (Avanafil) does arrive at Toronto pharmacies, there will be a variety of dosing options, from a 50 mg tablet, to a 200 mg tablet. The suggested starting dose of Stendra is the 100 mg tablet. Adjustments in Stendra dosing can be made from here based on a balance of side effects and how well it works. The higher doses of Stendra should work quicker as well.

In the meantime, while Toronto men will need to wait to try Stendra, we are lucky to have other good treatment options for Erectile Dysfunction, including Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, Staxyn, Shock Wave therapy, (Flowwave), and intracavernosal injection therapy.
