1st find cause: Before searching for erectile dysfunction treatments, figure out cause. Stress, in all its varied forms, is common, for instance work, money, bills, family issues, etc. Depression is another common cause. Smoking, too. Plus many medications.

Medications: If one has erectile dysfunction, the first thing to do is to lead a healthy lifestyle and do routine labs to determine if there is a treatable cause. . If this fails, there are several medical options. These include oral medications, penile injection of medications, or using a vacuum erection device. If all these fails, then the last option is surgery for a penile implant.

One that works for u: Seriously! Best medicine varies for any given individual. What's best for one isn't always best for someone else.

Yohimbe is not as effective. Alprostadil is more invasive, whether a pellet is placed in urethral or a shot is given.
