Many men may suffer with difficulties getting or maintaining an erection. Erectile dysfunction, (ED), can be embarrassing and frustrating. Although there are many types of therapy that can assist with this problem, it may not work for everyone. However, male erectile dysfunction medication can be used alone or as an adjunct treatment to help with this issue. Medications can be a very effective option and in most cases, only need to be taken on an as needed basis. There are a few different options when it comes to medications. These can include but are not limited to prescription drugs and over-the-counter remedies, in which some may be natural. The costs of these products can be affordable but will vary by the particular medicine. As with other types of products, it is important to consult with a physician before beginning a new treatment regimen.
