Erectile Dysfunction: Here are some other options.
Comes as an on-demand pill that lasts for 36 hours, or as a daily dose that's active all the time.
Lower dose pill. Better option if you're older or have a pre-existing condition like diabetes.
Like Viagra, but cheaper and works in the same way. Non-branded version of the original ED drug.
Like Cialis, but without the branding (so it's cheaper). 'Weekend' and daily options available.
Non-branded version of Levitra. Works in the same way, but cheaper.
The one you've heard of. Works in 30-60 minutes and lasts for up to 5 hours.
Stendra is an ED medication that works a bit like Viagra — only faster.
The active ingredient in Stendra is avanafil, which relaxes your blood vessels and helps circulation to your penis. This makes it easier to get and maintain a firm erection, but you’ll still need to be aroused for the medication to work.
Stendra kicks in quickly and stays effective for up to 5 hours. That means you don’t have to worry about picking the perfect time to take it.
Stendra is in the same family of medicines as Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. They’re called PDE5 inhibitors and they do what it says on the tin: inhibit an enzyme called PDE5. In other words, they help the blood vessels in your body relax, so blood can get to where you need it most. The end result is a firm erection.
Like other erectile dysfunction medications, Stendra only helps with the physical part of sex. You still need to be turned on for it to work.
Sometimes medications have different names in different countries. In the UK, acetaminophen is called paracetamol and Stendra is called Spedra.
Both Stendra and Spedra are made by the same company, contain Avanafil and come in the same doses. The one you’ll be prescribed depends on where you live. For the US, that’ll be Stendra.

Stendra 100 mg tablets - Patient Information Leaflet (PIL) - (emc).
Take Stendra by mouth, with water, 15-30 minutes before you have sex. It’ll usually take around 15 minutes to become effective.
Your Stendra prescription comes with a package insert that contains everything you need to know about this medication. It’s important to give it a read-over before taking your first pill, and you should always take it as instructed. Don’t exceed the Stendra dosage recommended for you by your clinician.
Stendra comes in three doses: 50mg, 100mg and 200mg.
Some men who take 50mg find it takes longer to work, or that they don’t stay hard for long enough. On the flip side, some men who take 100mg or 200mg experience side effects. We usually recommend starting with the lowest dose that the doctor thinks will be effective, and adjusting based on how it works.
We’ll help you find the Stendra dose that’s right for you. Let your clinician know if it’s your first time taking Stendra or if you’ve tried it before so they can make the best recommendation. Medical conditions and lifestyle can impact the dose too. (We’ll ask about those before you get your prescription.)
It can take a couple of attempts to work. But you shouldn’t take a second or third pill right away if you’re unable to get an erection after taking the first. Always leave at least 24 hours between pills.
If you’re not getting the results you want with Stendra, talk to us. Sometimes it’s a matter of adjusting the dose, other times it’s best to try a new ED medication altogether. We’ll work with you to find that perfect balance: effective medication with few (or no) side effects.
