Man worries about ED

About Spedra

How does Spedra work?

Spedra contains an active substance called avanafil, which works in the same way as other popular erectile dysfunction drugs. It relaxes the blood vessels in your penis, allowing the blood flow to your penis to increase. This makes it easier to achieve and maintain an erection following sexual stimulation and during sex. Spedra treats the symptoms of erectile dysfunction but not the cause, so you may find you need to take it every time you have sex if the underlying reasons for your ED are not cured. Spedra is only for men over 18, and should not be taken by women.

How is Spedra taken?

Spedra should be swallowed with a glass of water at least half an hour before sex, as it may take up to thirty minutes to begin working. You can take Spedra with food, but if you eat a heavy meal or one that contains a lot of fat, this will mean Spedra will take longer to break down in your stomach and consequently longer to begin working.

Spedra is available in tablets of 50mg, 100mg or 200mg. The usual dosage is 100mg, which can be adjusted by your doctor if you find it too strong or too weak. Do not attempt to increase the dosage on your own and do not take more than one Spedra tablet in a day. You should also try Spedra at the initial dosage up to three times before speaking to your doctor about increasing the dosage, as your nerves or anxiety may be affecting its effect.

What is the difference between Spedra and other erectile dysfunction drugs?

Spedra's active ingredient, avanafil, is very similar to the active ingredients in other ED medications, such as sildenafil in Viagra or tadalafil in Cialis. It is absorbed quickly in your body, and you should feel its effects within 30-45 minutes. Some patients have found it to work more quickly or more slowly; this will also depend on how relaxed you are and what, and how recently, you have eaten.
Is it safe to buy Spedra online?

Spedra is sold on a number of websites online, as are most erectile dysfunction medications nowadays. However, it's important to remember that Spedra, like all ED medications, is prescription-only and any site or person attempting to sell it to you without a prescription is doing so illegally, unlicensed and unmonitored. You may receive fake or unreliable medication from these sources, and are at risk of unwanted side effects, especially if Spedra or any of the ingredients in these medications is unsuitable for you to begin with.

If for whatever reason, you do not want to see a doctor face to face, the safest way to buy Spedra online is through a properly accredited online doctor service like Superdrug Online Doctor.

To order Spedra from Superdrug Online Doctor, you will need to provide some details via a simple questionnaire. This helps our doctors establish whether avanafil is suitable for you. Once our doctors have approved your order, you will receive a prescription via post which you can use to buy Spedra in any pharmacy.
Spedra can cause side effects in some patients. If the likelihood of side effects or interaction with other drugs you are currently taking is too high, our doctors may not issue a prescription and you will receive a refund.

Spedra can interact with certain medications. You must disclose all medications you take to your doctor before taking Spedra, including herbal remedies, supplements and recreational drugs. This will lower your risk of any interactions.

Can I take Spedra with alcohol?

Alcohol should be avoided while taking Spedra as it can affect your ability to get an erection. It can also cause headaches, dizziness or palpitations when taken at the same time as Spedra's active ingredient, avanafil.

Do Spedra and Grapefruit interact?

Grapefruit, grapefruit juice or products containing grapefruit can increase the effect of avanafil drastically and lead to changes in blood pressure and other side effects. Do not consume grapefruit within a 24 hour period before or after taking Spedra.
