Reviews for Avanafil

Comment · Taken for less than 1 month May 21, 2020

Stendra (avanafil): “Good”

Stendra (avanafil): “I was given a 100 mg sample of this drug Stendra by my GP. The result was nothing happened when I used it. My GP said try the 200 mg version and gave me a script. The result was the same. I have tried viagra with good results. As far as I can see Stendra should be classified as a placebo not a drug.”

Stendra (avanafil): “I'm baffled by all the negative reviews. I've tried all PDE-5 inhibitors and Stendra is by far the best: it works fast (only 15-30 minutes!), the effect lasts for 10 hours and side effects are minimal. Stendra does not improve arousal, so sexual stimulation is essential. Make sure you take it on an empty stomach and avoid any other drugs that may interact with avanafil.”

Stendra (avanafil): “I used samples of Stendra( 2 ) from Doctor worked great. Hard enough for wife and I. I got a prescription filled for 5, taken two ......very disappointed! Nothing, even I didn’t know better thought it was a placebo. I had great expectations!”

Stendra (avanafil): “Took 100mg of Stendra. About 30 min later the wife started doing her part and the old boy was back to the glory days of firm and long. Wife was happy. No real side affects though I had a slight headache. Just an expensive option.”

Stendra (avanafil): “I am first time user on Stendra. Got prescription for 100 mg as it is known for least side effect. I am sensitive to drugs, so I halved it and just took 50 mg. Waited for about an hour for good measure, and it worked great as advertised. No side effects whatsoever.”

Stendra (avanafil): “As I read many of the comments, it is obvious some guys think you take a pill and should get an instant erection. That's not how these drugs work. You need to be in the mood AND properly stimulated.”

Stendra (avanafil): “Previously tried Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra. Levitra worked marginally...the others did nothing. Urologist said the active ingredient in Stendra has shown to be very effective compared to the three products I mentioned. Instructions for Stendra says to take it and in as little as 15 minutes you should get good results and medication can allow you to perform for up to 24 hours. I took it at 5:30 a.m. this morning. It is now 9 a.m. and reaction whatsoever. 3.5 hours and nothing? When you consider at a regular pharmacy one tablet of Stendra costs $30 and even on a website that offers discount prescription medications it is $15 per tablet. That, for me, is a waste of money for a product that practically guarantees results, only for me to be sadly disappointed and let down again. The only good part is my Urologist received free samples and gave me three 200 mg tablets of Stendra. Had I paid for this useless product I would be even more upset.”

JC · Taken for 2 to 5 years April 9, 2019

Stendra (avanafil): “I’m in 50s and started to have difficulties staying hard. Doc prescribed and have been using the 200mg for about 2.5 years now. Average use is about once a week. Initially worked great and fast (15 minutes from taking it). Like others here, even next day it seemed to still be working. Recently, though, it’s become hit or miss. I’m not sure if something has changed with the med, my increased anxiety (mind can really affect you if you begin to lose confidence), or from prolonged use. Hoping to see if others on here have experienced anything similar.”

DONNY DEE · Taken for less than 1 month December 27, 2018

Stendra (avanafil): “I wanted Viagra but my doctor gave me prescription for Stendra which I took and nothing happened. Next time took two- nothing at all these are 100mg. I've always had good luck with Viagra even at 50 mg. At $35 a pill I advise to start with only buying the smallest amount they will sell you, just to see if it will be good for you. I wasted $450.00 just wondering maybe a bad batch ? Who really knows.”

Stendra (avanafil): “I took 1 hour before; got slight headache, works only moderately well? Got semi-hard, but its still better than viagra or cialis as least I can have intercourse. This one is best pill on the market for me. I've tried everything else”

DB Cooper · Taken for 1 to 6 months July 21, 2018

Stendra (avanafil): “I have tried Viagra and Lavitra. No luck. Stendra 200mg with and with out food, with foreplay I get a very good hard erection in about 30 min. Wife and I can go for ages, take a break and go again. It seems like the next morning I am able to get that great erection again. We love it, and I have had no side effects.”

Stendra (avanafil): “I took the 200 mg pill and other than blood shot eyes and a mild headache I had absolutely no reaction at all whatsoever to get an erection. What a waste of money. Don’t waste your money”

Stendra (avanafil): “200 mg Stendra, taken 15 minutes prior to sexual activity. Nasal congestion and mild headache after 30 minutes. No change in ability to achieve and maintain an erection. A placebo would have been more effective.”

Stendra (avanafil): “Worked ok”

CalSurfer · Taken for 1 to 6 months November 15, 2017

Stendra (avanafil): “As prescribed, I took 1/2 pill (100mg) of Stendra after a night of adult beverages, good food, and dancing. Less than 30 min later, with her prompting, I was harder than ever and lasted 2 hrs. We're very happy. No negative side effects. NOW, here's the good part............. 4 hours later, without taking any more Stendra, it was still working 4 hours after that, same thing. Poor wife was lethargic for the next 24 hrs. Thank you Stendra ps- had tried Cialis and Viagra in the past with poor AND negative results.”

Stendra (avanafil): “Junk drug - I have tried cialis before and that worked pretty well but bad indigestion. This stuff just gives me a headache but nothing else happens. Tried 200mg twice and nothing. Lame.”

Stendra (avanafil): “Did not work for me took it waited and waited, never did get hard so to be honest did me no good at all”

Uptime August 3, 2017

Stendra (avanafil): “Excellent Med. A tip for all you guys suffering hip and back pain after use of some ED meds, cause is likely not the meds. Now in my 50's I'm slowing down a little, while in my 20's I could stay on the ride for hours until I decided when it would end. After some back and cervical injuries slowed me down the staying on the ride power with remains as long as I take the right ED med. As we get older though so do our bones, muscle and everything else. Now days, we pop a med, pop an erection and suddenly when in the saddle giving it all we have as if we were still twenty something. Damn right your backs and hips are gonna ache :) Not the meds ;)”

Stendra (avanafil): “I take 200mg about 45 min before sexual activity, this usually allows me to get hard enough to penetrate and maintain an erection until I get the job done (10-15 minutes). Once I have ejaculated I cannot get another erection. I have found that Stendra works better if you make a lot of time for foreplay to help with arousal (for both of you), usually more fun also. For me this med is not as effective as Cialis or Viagra but the side effects are MUCH more tolerable.”

Stendra (avanafil): “I've tried viagra and was just ok. Dr. Office gave me sample bottle of strenda and it was amazing how I could stay hard for hours, girl friend says I'm better than men half my age, I'm 54. Matches her 37 yo drive perfect. I highly recommend it.”

Stendra (avanafil): “This medication is amazing!!! Worked in 15 mins and my girlfriend thought I was a amazing! We went at it for 60 mins! I kid you not! Never had any issues with Stendra in the past 12 months. Viagra and Cialis gave me way too many bad side effects! Flushing, nasal congestion and back ache.”

Stendra (avanafil): “This medication worked well for me! 200 mg and I was rock hard for hours wow. Viagra was weaker for me I don't know why. I got burned by a topical medicine cream [FDA is a joke and a half] anyway insurance will ONLY sadly pay for 6 pills a month] sick right? very very sick. Anyway this worked better for me than viagra. Reason being is must be genetics that .1% difference in humans does make a huge difference for medical compounds. Also Avanafil is structurally different vastly from Viagra. Nitric Oxide effect is increased therefore GMP increases thus leading to better erections. Try all PDE 5 inhibitors before you say they won't work because what may work for one may NOT work for another.”
