The term “blue pill” became part of the vernacular as a result of the blue coloring of Viagra, the original treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED). Not all pharmaceutical treatments for ED, however, come in the form of a blue pill. Cialis, for instance, is yellow, while Levitra is pink. Additionally, treatments other than medications, like surgery and vacuum pumps, are also available. Despite the myriad of colors in which ED pills can be found an the vast array of treatments that are available, the phrase “blue pill” has come to encompass any pharmaceutical ED treatment. The phrase is not applied to surgical or psychological treatments for ED, but is often applied to herbal and natural remedies.
Pharmaceutical treatments for ED include Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, and Spedra. All of these medications work by increasing blood flow to the penis to improve erection frequency and quality. All of these treatments are effective, but carry with them significant side effects that can be both unpleasant and dangerous. Viagra, Levitra, and Spedra are all fast-acting medications taken approximately thirty minutes prior to intercourse. Cialis is a long-acting medication that remains effective for up to thirty-six hours after it is taken. All pharmaceutical treatments for ED require a prescription and should only be taken after consultation with a physician. Any of the drugs mentioned above can be purchased at a pharmacy or over the Internet.
Natural remedies for ED include DHEA, L-arginine, ginseng, yohimbe, ginkgo, and Horny goat weed. Many of these products are available as supplements, which means a prescription is not required. It also means that they can be purchased over the counter at many locations. Natural remedies differ from prescription drugs in that they are not intended to be used prior to sexual activity, but rather are taken on a regular basis to promote good vascular health and improve the function of the penis. The contrast is best compared to the difference between emergency treatment for a condition and long-term health maintenance. Prescription medications are more like emergency treatments while herbal remedies provide long-term health maintenance. In many cases, herbal remedies and traditional pharmaceuticals can be used in conjunction with one another. It is important, however, that you consult with your health care provider any time you start a supplement regimen, particularly when you are already taking prescription medications, as they may interact with prescription medications or exacerbate an underlying health condition.
