The promise of erectile dysfunction (ED) medication is tempting; everybody wants a healthy, fulfilling love life no matter their age. It’s easy to understand the popularity of these pills. However, a closer look at the side effects warrants a bit of caution. Before you take any kind of erectile dysfunction medication, we advise you to take a second look at their side effects.

While most people will not experience any serious side effects from ED medication, it is still important to know the risks you put yourself in when choosing this form of treatment.

What are the Side Effects?

Although side effects of erectile dysfunction medication can vary, according to factors like dosage and frequency of use, some of the most common side effects of ED treatment pills are:

  • Headache
  • Abdominal symptoms (diarrhea, vomiting)
  • Blurred vision
  • Painful or prolonged erections (4+ hours)
  • Low blood pressure
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Memory problems
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swelling in the hands or feet
  • Flu-like symptoms (sneezing, sore throat)

What’s more, ED medication can also have a host of negative drug interactions, especially with the following medications:

  • Antibiotics and antifungals
  • Antidepressants
  • Barbiturates
  • Blood Pressure or prostate medication
  • Medication for heart problems/conditions
  • Certain HIV/AIDS medication
  • Seizure medication

A Better Way to Treat Erectile Dysfunction

While these side effects certainly don’t affect every person who takes prescription medication for ED, what if there was a way to avoid these risks altogether?

This is possible with low-level laser therapy (LLLT). This non-invasive ED treatment is all-natural and doesn’t require the intervention of drugs or medication.

Recent studies have shown the efficacy of low-level laser therapy in aiding erectile dysfunction and bringing about vasorelaxation, the cause of erections. When applied to the vascular bend, it can bring a significant increase in erectile function.
