Can drugs for erectile dysfunction be used by healthy people for recreational purposes?
These drugs have a well estabilished safety and tolerability profile, but they are not without side effects. The two therapeutic indications for which they are approved are the treatment of erectile dysfunction and pulmonary hypertension. They should never be taken for recreational purposes, or without a physician’s approval. It is advisable that healthy men who feel the need for help in their sexual lives talk to their doctor or a sexologist to evaluate other types of intervention, or directly with their partner to improve complicity in the relationship.
