Spedra 200mg Tablets information

  • What are Spedra tablets?

    Spedra tablets are an ED medication. Spedra works works by promoting blood flow towards the penis, which results in a heightened ability to maintain erections. This blood flow will only occur during sexual stimulation, so Spedra does not allow you to skip the foreplay!

    Avanafil as an ED treatment

    The active ingredient of Spedra tablets is the drug avanafil (avanafil is also sold under the brand name Stendra is the US). This is a PDE-5 inhibitor, a drug which tackles ED by increasing the blood flow to your penis once you have become aroused. Other PDE-5 inhibitors are: Cialis, Levitra, and Viagra.

    Is avanafil available in the UK?

    Avanafil is available with a prescription in the UK from your doctor/GP or a regitsered online pharmacy. You will be required to complete a medical consultation in order to buy avanafil and Spedra tablets.

    What is Spedra 100mg?

    Spedra comes in 50mg,100mg, and 200mg dosages. It is recommended that you start by taking the 100mg tablets.

    Spedra 200mg tablets are the highest dosage available and prescribed to men who have tried lower dosages or other ED treatments without success.

    A Spedra 200mg tablet should be strong enough to treat almost all cases of ED. However, like all ED medication, there is a chance of little or no effect, particularly if it is one of the first times the medicine is being used. If a certain dose of Spedra isn't working, it is advised that you try it at least eight times before deciding to switch to another dose or medicine.

    If side effects such as headaches or flushing appear, and persist after several uses of the medicine, you might want to consider another treatment or a reduced dosage.

    Does Spedra work?

    Spedra deals with ED by dealing with the physical causes of a difficulty in achieving erections – reduced blood flow to the penis as a result of blocked or narrow arteries. ED can also be caused by psychological reasons, such as anxiety or depression. It is possible that Spedra can help in achieving an erection when ED is caused by psychological symptoms. In these cases, it is recommended that advice from a doctor or therapist is sought for a long term solution.

    How long does it take for Spedra to work?

    Spedra is one of the fastest solutions for ED available – it can take effect in just 20 minutes, and this can last for up to 4 or 5 hours. However, if you have recently eaten prior to taking Spedra then it can take up to 90 minutes for the medication to work.

    What are the most common side effects for Spedra?

    The following side effects can appear when using Spedra:

    • Nasal congestion
    • Headache

    If any of these concern you, or Spedra causes any other side effects, consult with a doctor or pharmacist.

    Not everyone will experience side effects.

    Is Spedra better than Viagra?

    The active ingredient of Viagra is sildenafil citrate. While both Spedra and Viagra allow you to achieve and then maintain an erection for up to 5 hours, Viagra takes an hour to take effect, while Spedra becomes effective after just 20 minutes.

    Which erectile dysfunction treatment is best?

    There are a large number of ED treatments available and the best one for you will depend on your medical circumstances and personal requirements:

    • Cialis – Best if you want a long-lasting ED treatment and well-known brand
    • Levitra – Best if you are aged over 50 and/or have diabetes
    • Sildenafil – Best if you want a cheaper alternative to Viagra
    • Spedra – Best if you want a fast-acting ED treatment
    • Tadalafil – Best if you want a long-lasting and cheaper alternative to Cialis
    • Viagra – Best if you want a well-known ED treatment that lasts 4-5 hours
    • Viagra Connect – Best if you do not have a prescription for ED medication
    • Vitaros – Best if you have found other ED medication to be ineffective

    For more information on the different medication available, check out our Compare ED Treatments table.

    Spedra with food and alcohol

    Grapefruit juice can increase exposure to the medicine and should be avoided within 24 hours prior to taking Spedra.

    Drinking alcohol at the same time as taking Spedra may increase your heart rate and lower your blood pressure.

    Spedra does not always work for everyone the first time they use it. If this is the case you should not give up, guidance states that you should try Spedra at least 8 times before trying an alternative ED treatment. If you find Spedra 200mg tablets effective and do not experience any serious side effects you can request a repeat order via your online account.

Spedra has a small risk of nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, and skin rash as with all medicines. Please read the Patient Information Leaflet enclosed with your medicines for a full list of side effects.

    • blurred vision.
    • sudden decrease or loss of vision in one or both eyes.
