What is Avana?
Avana is a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor (PDE5 inhibitor) which works by relaxing muscles to increase blood flow to certain parts of the body. It blocks PDE5 in smooth muscle cells lining the blood vessels supplying corpus cavernosum to the penis. It is a new drug commonly used to treat erectile dysfunction. It is usually a faster acting medication that also passes through the body at a quicker rate than most erectile dysfunction drugs.
How is Avana used?
Avana is usually taken orally 30 minutes before sexual activity either with or without food. It is recommended to take the lowest amount as possible as prescribed by your doctor, contact your doctor for the correct dosage. Do not take more than 1 dose of the medication per day. The medication is only effective when there is sexual stimulation, an erection will not occur by only taking a tablet. Contact a doctor immediately should your erection last longer than 4 hours as erections lasting longer than 4 hours may cause permanent damage to the penis.
Patients using Avana may encounter side effects such as :
• Cold symptoms
• Nasal congestion
• Back pain
Patients should not take the medication in combination with nitrate medication. The combination may lead to a sudden decrease in blood pressure. Taking the medication with grapefruits or grapefruit juice may also cause a potentially dangerous reaction.
