The VED, often referred to as a penis pump, is a mechanical device that creates a vacuum drawing blood into the penis. Often after prostate surgery or a prolonged period of ED, brought on by any reason, can cause penile shrinkage and tissue atrophy. The pump can be used as a form of physical therapy bringing nutrients and oxygen rich blood to the penis aiding in penile rehabilitation and also sexual intercourse.
We work with your doctor to provide you oral pill medications and fast acting compounded sublingual medications known as troches. Troches are dosage form that we compound on site containing the commonly prescribed PDES inhibitors.
Intracavernousal injection of some combination of prostaglandin, phentolamine and papaverine is commonly referred to as "Bi-Mix", 'Tri-Mix" or "Quad-Mix". Your physician and the pharmacists at Your Health Pharmacy will work closely with you, instructing you on the proper technique and dosing adjustments to assure your best chances for success. Many men that have had prostate surgery utilize this therapy with great success.
A penile implant is a prosthetic device made of biocompatible plastic that is surgically inserted inside the penis to produce a natural-like erection. This allows a man to engage in sexual intercourse "on demand" as the erection is readily available. With the implant no medications will be needed to get an erection. The penile implant is intended to be a permanent treatment for ED, when all other treatment options have failed.

This hormone plays an essential role in bonding and socialization. It is connected to sexual response in both men and women. For men, research shows it may play a role in the complex chain of reactions that causes erections.
Found in the brand-name medication Cialis, tadalafil is another popular choice for men seeking help with ED. Tadalafil can be prescribed to be taken on a daily basis, not just “as-needed.” This allows more freedom and spontaneity as it does not need to be taken right before having sex.
The drug found in the brand-name medication Viagra has been the mainstay drug therapy for ED for many years. After it was FDA-approved, sildenafil was prescribed to over 20 million men. There are other drugs that can be as effective or even more effective than sildenafil, but it remains a popular choice due to its commercial availability.
Sildenafil and Tadalafil are both what are known as phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. These drugs help improve blood flow to the penis by helping to enhance the effects of nitric oxide and increasing cyclic guanosine monophosphate in the smooth muscle cells. The cascade of effects helps prolong an erection. PDE5 inhibitors are still the most commonly prescribed medications for ED.
