Comparison of Spedra and Viagra


Does Spedra work more quickly than Viagra (Sildenafil)?

Compared to Viagra (Sildenafil), Spedra is significantly faster. Spedra starts to work in around 30 minutes and in some men it may work as quickly as 15 minutes! Viagra on the other hand needs to be taken one hour before sexual activity.

Spedra remains effective for four to five hours, which is similar to Viagra. This does not mean that your erection will actually last that long – rather you will have the ability to attain an improved erection for that period of time. If you take Spedra after a large meal, it may take longer to become effective.

Background Information on Spedra

What is Spedra (Avanafil)?

Spedra is the latest mediciation approved for the tratment of erectile dysfunction. Spedra contains the active ingredient Avanafil. Spedra is a treatment for adult men suffering from erectile dysfunction.  For Spedra to be effective, sexual stimulation is required.

How does Spedra work?

Spedra works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax. This increases the blood flow into your penis, helping it stay hard when you get sexually excited. Spedra does not cure your condition. It is important to note that Spedra only works if you are sexually stimulated, and that you and your partner will still need to use foreplay to get ready for sex – just as you would if you were not taking a medicine to help you.
