Beware club drugs and Viagra

couple dancing in night clubClub drugs include Ecstasy (MDMA), the ‘date rape drug’ (Rohypnol), Crystal meth or Speed (Methamphetamine), acid (LSD), Special K (Ketamine) and Poppers (amyl nitrates). Increasingly the dangers of these drugs are escalated by taking more than one at the same time.

Typically taken at raves, parties, and clubs, these drugs are used to enhance or distort sensations and perceptions, to feel euphoric, and experience greater enjoyment. They are perceived to increase self-confidence and physical energy.

Of course these drugs are illegal for a reason. They have adverse effects and can be dangerous, even fatal. Problems arise from toxicity due to excessive dose, from interactions, and due to impurities. Illegal drugs are not monitored for quality. Read in full

Precautions for erectile dysfunction treatment

doctor consultationThere is a reason why all four of the mostly common treatments for erectile dysfunction (Viagra/sildenafil, Cialis, Levitra and Spedra) require a prescription. It is the same reason why none of them are authorised or recommended for recreational use.

Alternative erectile dysfunction treatments

New: Spedra (avanafil) for erectile dysfunction

SpedraSpedra (avanafil) is a new fast acting prescription drug for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). It works in a similar way to older well established ED drugs, Viagra/sildenafil, Cialis and Levitra. These medications are all known as PDE5 inhibitors. They work by increasing the blood flow to the penis at times of sexual stimulation.

Stimulation is required before these tablets will work. If there is no stimulation, tablets remain inactive and active ingredients are eliminated harmlessly from the body over a day or so.

Low cost Spedra – cheap Spedra

Spedra is a new medication (May 2014). It is under exclusive license and marketed only by the pharmacy company Menarini. Menarini have set the wholesale price of Spedra to be competitive with other branded ED treatments – although unbranded sildenafil, which is medically identical to Viagra, is usually cheaper.

Currently the cheapest Spedra from a UK regulated online clinic comes from Dr Fox (May 2014). A single 100mg Spedra tablet from Dr Fox costs from £3.09. Some other online clinics charge £5.84 or more per tablet.
