In brief: Viagra (sildenafil)

Are you unable to take viagra due to side effects? Others in the viagra family are Cialis & levitra (vardenafil).
Intracavernous Alprostadil is another option as is Alprostadil intraurethral suppository (muse). Some rely on a vacuum erection device. Some use supplements like dhea, yohimbe, arginine, but they have many side effects. Work with pcp to determine cause of ED to correct that.

You can also try an inexpensive penile ring (about $10), make sure to buy an adjustable one with velcro or snaps. It may work for you. Here is a good article on treatments for erectile dysfunction http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/erectile-dysfunction/DS00162/DSECTION=treatments-and-drugs.

In brief: Several others

There are 4 other oral medications to treat erectile dysfunction.
If viagra is not effective, then one can try levitra, (vardenafil) staxyn, or cialis. If these fail, other alternative medications are penile injection therapy (caverject) or a small suppository oplaced into the urethra (muse). A nonpharmacological method to assist with erectile dysfunction is a vacuum erection device.

In brief: Three others.

Cialis ;Stendra; and Levitra! All work by the same mechanism, but some people respond better to one than the others!
