Erectile Dysfunction: Here are some other options.
Injectable treatment that works from 5 minutes. Good option if tablets haven't worked for you.
Comes as an on-demand pill that lasts for 36 hours, or as a daily dose that's active all the time.
Lower dose pill. Better option if you're older or have a pre-existing condition like diabetes.
Like Viagra, but cheaper and works in the same way. Non-branded version of the original ED drug.
Tablet that works from just 15 minutes. Works in the same way as Viagra and lasts for 5 hours.
Like Cialis, but without the branding (so it's cheaper). 'Weekend' and daily options available.
Non-branded version of Levitra. Works in the same way, but cheaper.
The one you've heard of. Works in 30-60 minutes and lasts for up to 5 hours.
Vitaros is a prescription cream you can apply to the head of the penis for erectile dysfunction. It comes in a 100mg tube in two different strengths: 200mcg and 300mcg (Or Vitaros 2mg/g and 3mg/g).
The main ingredient in Vitaros cream is alprostadil, which mimics a chemical we have in our bodies called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). Alprostadil belongs to a class of drugs called vasodilators, which means that it helps blood vessels to widen. Vasodilators are used a lot in medicine, but the only approved therapeutic use for Vitaros is to treat erectile dysfunction.
Vitaros widens the blood vessels and relaxes the smooth muscles in the penis. This causes an erection that’s hard and firm enough for sexual activity.
Shortly before having sex, you’ll gently apply Vitaros alprostadil cream to the opening at the tip of the penis, called the urethra. Its cream formulation penetrates your urethra to produce an erection in as little as five minutes.
Vitaros Cream is used by men who either can’t take oral treatments for ED such as Viagra or Cialis, or who have tried them and found them to be ineffective. You may be more familiar with pills like Viagra or Cialis, because they are usually the first option for most men with ED. Doctors prescribe pills to treat erectile dysfunction more often since they are low risk medicines and easily swallowed.
But some men can’t take these pills for medical reasons, so they get alternative treatments. Vitaros is one such alternative to Viagra and Cialis, along with other alprostadil medications (such as injections or urethral suppositories).

If you’re using it for the first time, follow these simple steps:
There are two dosages available for Vitaros cream: 200mcg and 300mcg. Your physician will most likely start you on the Vitaros 300mcg cream. If you experience uncomfortable side effects like genital aching, burning, or inflammation, your doctor may lower your dosage to 200mcg.
