Spedra is a medicine to treat erectile dysfunction and which is part of the class of antihypertensives and peripheral vasodilators. It is therefore a medical treatment which requires the issuance of a prescription by an approved doctor. Can this treatment be purchased online? But before that, would Spedra be effective for having harder and more successful erections? What is it made of? The answers in this test.
Spedra, faster than the famous Viagra?
It seems that, according to its manufacturer, Spedra is faster than all its competitors already on the market, namely Cialis , Levitra And Viagra . The duration of action of Spedra is reported to be of the order of 15 minutes. It is true that it is significantly faster than other treatments (beyond 45 minutes), especially since it also promises up to 6 hours of effect.
The list isn’t long by the way. Spedra owes its effectiveness to a single molecule called Avanafil, a specific phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor recommended to treat sexual impotence.
Avanafil has been approved by the the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in April 2012 in the United States. A year later, in June 2013, its use in Europe was authorized by the European Medicines Agency. April 2014, the official marketing of avanafil was launched in France by the private pharmaceutical laboratories Menarini.
The manufacturer of Spedra
The Menarini laboratories are located in Florence, Italy (since 1915) and they enjoy a worldwide reputation. This company highlights the motto“ The quality of our medicines is our priority”to signify its great commitment to advanced medical research.
Menarini is the 1st Italian pharmaceutical laboratory, 17th European pharmaceutical laboratory and 37th pharmaceutical laboratory worldwide. They settled in France in 1992, where they also enjoy the same reputation. Menarini laboratories are behind the drug Priligy (which we have already tested in this article ) to treat premature ejaculation.
How does Spedra work?
Like its competitors containing PDE5 inhibitors, it works the same way. The role of type 5 phosphodiesterases is to stop the erection process, after sexual intercourse, by forcing the smooth muscles in the penis to retract. However, in many people, the action of these PDE5 occurs earlier, well at the beginning of the sexual act. This therefore prevents any erection and then requires external intervention to inhibit this action. This is where the Spedra comes into play.
Spedra side effects
Being a more recent molecule compared to sildenafil, tadalafil or vardenafil, avanafil does not cause any notable side effects. However, adverse effects have been identified during clinical trials. We are talking in particular about headaches, nasal congestion, hot flashes and back pain.
These symptoms are normally common to all PDE5 inhibitors and should disappear after the body adapts to this type of treatment. We advise you to contact your doctor if any of these effects occur.
Spedra is contraindicated in certain people:
- Women ;
- Men aged under 18 and over 70;
- Having heart, liver, kidney problems or ulcers;
- Under HIV treatment;
In general, all medications with similar components (mentioned above) should not be used by patients treated with nitrate (nitrate derivative). There is a high risk of dangerous drops in blood pressure.
How to take Spedra?
In terms of dosage, Spedra is presented in 3 packages :
- 50 mg : this is the lowest dosage. Prescribed for patients who experienced more side effects with the conventional dose;
- 100mg : it’s here conventional dose which is prescribed for anyone without contraindications;
- 200 mg : this is the highest dosage and is recommended when the conventional dosage has not produced sufficient effects or when Spedra is well tolerated by the patient.
It is not recommended to take more than one Spedra tablet per day (24 hours).
As with all medications, you must have a prescription to be able to purchase it at a pharmacy counter. There are also online pharmacies (for people who prefer to buy this way) and who collaborate with approved doctors who issue prescriptions online, after validation of an online health form.
