What is Spedra Menarini
Spedra is one of the newer treatments available for erectile dysfunction. It was launched in the UK in 2014 by Italian laboratory Menarini. It is marketed in the US as Stendra. The main selling point of this medicine is its rapid response time; in many cases, Spedra tablets have shown noticeable results in as little as 15 minutes, making it quicker on average than other tablets such as Viagra and Levitra. You can buy Spedra online in 50, 100 and 200 mg tablets from our UK pharmacy.
Active ingredient: avanafil
The functioning agent in Spedra is a PDE5 inhibitor called Avanafil. This works in a similar way to sildenafil citrate (Viagra) and vardenafil (Levitra), by limiting the activity of an enzyme present in the body, PDE5.
How does PDE5 affect ED?
Enzymes in the body work to provide balance. In the case of PDE5, the enzyme helps to manage blood flow, and allows blood vessels to tighten and contract. However, erections are enabled by blood rushing to the penis, and when this process becomes interrupted or impaired, erectile problems can often result. Spedra works to reduce the activity of PDE5, thereby permitting blood to rush more freely to the penis during periods of sexual arousal.
How common is ED?
Some men with erectile dysfunction might find the prospect of confronting the condition a daunting one, but it is important to remember that it is very common. Many doctors posit that most men will experience erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives. In the UK, it is estimated that as many as 40 per cent of men over 60 and 50 per cent of men over 70 will run into erectile problems.
Nonetheless, impotence can be tough for men to speak to their doctor about in person. This is why many men looking to buy Spedra or other treatments for erectile dysfunction might do so online.
What causes it?
The possible causes of ED, otherwise known as impotence, are numerous. Conditions like high blood pressure and decreased circulation can lead to ED, making age very much a factor; while lifestyle habits, such as alcohol consumption and drug use can also be contributing factors. Sometimes the condition can be caused by much more simple circumstantial factors, such as stress or anxiety. These are more commonly the cause in younger men, who may feel more pressured to perform sexually during the early stages of a relationship.
How do Spedra tablets work?
The main operating ingredient in Spedra is a substance called avanafil. This belongs to the PDE5 inhibitor class of medicines, which also includes sildenafil and vardenafil. Like Levitra and Viagra, the active component in this treatment works by restraining the function of an enzyme (PDE5).
- Easy-to-take single tablet.
- Works in just 15-30 minutes.
- Can produce effects for up to 5 hours.
An erection is the biological result of a chain of chemical events taking place in the male body, which come about as a result of sexual stimulation. However, certain circumstances can sometimes endeavour to limit this process. Stress, poor dietary habits or diabetes can all result in reduced circulation - and blood flow is a necessary part of the biological process required for an erection.
Enzymes play an important role in how our bodies function. PDE5 works to monitor and keep blood flow under control. PDE5 can also have a restricting effect on blood vessels around the penis, which can lead to weakened erectile activity. By tempering the effects of PDE5, avanafil allows for more consistent blood flow to the penis, granting the user stronger and longer-lasting erections.
What doses of Spedra are available?
Spedra tablets come in three doses (50mg, 100mg and 200mg) all of which are available to buy online from our UK pharmacy. Which strength you are prescribed will largely depend on if you have used impotence treatment before, and how sensitive you are to potential side effects.
The typical starting dose is 100mg, for men who are generally healthy.
In cases where a man has tried the starting dose, found that it worked well, but experienced mild side effects, a doctor might recommend lowering to 50mg, which is the smallest dose.
Typically, when prescribing any medication, a doctor will attempt to offer the lowest dose known to be effective, to help lower the risk of side effects. We recommend that first-time users ordering Spedra through our service start with the 50mg dose.
In other cases, where the starting dose has produced a less than sufficient response, and no side effects have been observed by the patient, then a doctor may recommend increasing to 200mg, which is the highest dose.
What to look for when you buy Spedra online
Buying prescription medicines online in the UK is easy, convenient and safe, but only provided you do so from a GPhC-registered dispensing pharmacy.
So if you're purchasing medication over the internet, always be aware of the following:
Whenever you buy Spedra or any other prescription treatment online, check to make sure the website you are using is affiliated with a registered dispensing pharmacy. You can do this by checking their entry in the GPhC register: in most cases, the site will provide a link to their entry via the green cross logo (as we have done at the top of this page).
Can you get Spedra on the NHS?
Some men are entitled to Spedra on an NHS prescription. However, to be entitled to buy Spedra at the NHS levy, or get it for free, the patient must meet certain medical criteria.
Those searching for Spedra online should be aware that no generic treatment containing avanafil is currently available. Patients should also be aware that the US version known as Stendra is not available to buy in the UK. Here, it will only be sold by registered pharmacies as Spedra. You should never use online pharmacies which offer to sell generic medicines which do not exist or promise to let you buy Spedra or other erectile dysfunction treatments without a prescription. They may be offering counterfeit products and are very likely operating outside the law.

- Taking Spedra after eating a large meal may slow down its response time.
- You and your partner will still need to engage in sexual foreplay for Spedra to be effective.
