Sildenafil a Popular Choice for Men with ED
Sildenafil was the most frequently-prescribed phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor for erectile dysfunction (ED) over a five-year period, researchers report.
Their findings, published online in March in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, are based on data from over 100,000 men in the United States between 2010 and 2015.
Three ED drugs were studied: sildenafil, tadalafil, and vardenafil.
More details on the study, including information on the men's drug switching patterns, can be found here.
