Do Gels For Erectile Dysfunction Work?

Erectile dysfunction gels containing a topical form of ED drug alprostadil, which is used in penile injections, are available on prescription although the results seem to be not as effective as when injected.

Some erectile gels are being produced with sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, in them but these too have not been found to be as effective as when taken in capsule form.

Another option is testosterone in gel form applied daily, which may have longer term benefits but will not produce instant results.

Other gels for erectile dysfunction may contain herbs like yohimbe, (illegal in Australia) or the amino acid L-arginine, found in Ignite Intimate gel, which is formulated to enhance sexual arousal but not specifically as an erectile dysfunction gel.
