Spedra is one of a group of drugs similar to Viagra known as phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors (PDE-5). They work by relaxing the blood vessels in the penis which results in more blood flowing to the penis when you are sexually excited.
Spedra is one of the newest treatments on the market for erectile dysfunction and differentiates itself by being quicker acting than Viagra. Spedra can take as little as 15-30 minutes to take effect whereas Viagra can take up to one hour.
How do I take it?
You should take Spedra approximately 15-30 minutes before you are planning to have intercourse. Spedra will last in your system for around 6 hours so when sexually aroused you will be able to have intercourse during this window of time. Tablets are swallowed whole with a glass of water. You must be sexually excited for the drug to work- Spedra treats the physical element of erectile dysfunction and will not increase sexual desire.
Spedra comes in three different strength tablets; 50mg, 100mg and 200mg.
100mg tablets are the standard dose and we recommend you try these first. If you experience side effects, you can reduce your dose to 50mg or if you find you require a stronger effect, you can try 200mg.
We do not recommend that you split tablets in half as you cannot guarantee that the bioavailability of active ingredient will be the same in both halves of the tablet (e.g. you may split a 200mg tablet but receive 150mg of active ingredient in one half and 50mg in the other).
