Faster-acting erectile dysfunction drug gets FDA approval
An erectile dysfunction drug that can be taken just 15 minutes before sexual activity has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration.
This is a much shorter time compared to drugs like Viagra, which can be taken about an hour before sex.
The drug, Stendra, may be taken with or without food and with moderate alcohol consumption (up to three drinks), the companies behind the drug said on Thursday.
Increase blood flow
Stendra helps increase blood flow to the penis. It is available in multiple dosages (50 mg, 100 mg and 200 mg tablets).
The drug, which was first approved in 2012, is sold as Spedra in the European Union.
It was developed by Auxilium Pharmaceuticals Inc and Vivus Incs.
