Erectile dysfunction does not only affect a man’s sex life, but can even diminish his quality-of-life. For many men, this is a source of embarrassment in which they will suffer in silence. However, erectile dysfunction medication can help some individuals. There are different types of medications on the market designed specifically for this purpose. This can include but is not limited to prescription, non-prescription and even natural supplements. For many men, safety is a concern. With this being said, medication is considered safe for those who are in general good health although it may be contraindicated for those with some health conditions. As with any other type of treatment or medication, it is always best to consult with the primary care physician prior to starting any new medication. Living with the emotional pain and trauma of erectile dysfunction is not necessary.
