Choose Dissolving ED Meds For Faster, Stronger* Effect
Pay less for ED meds. Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra and Revatio but without the $$$ price tag. Go with a troche and you'll get more bang for your buck. Custom-compounded sildenafil troches deliver faster, more potent results* by dissolving in the mouth and bypassing the digestive system.
What is a Dissolving Troche
Troches are a form of a drug that is designed to dissolve under the tongue. This is called sublingual delivery. Troches are not swallowed.
Are Troches Better than Pills or Capsules?
One form is not better than the other. The choice may be a matter of preference or necessity.
Here's how troches are different from pills.
- Troches are not swallowed. They are absorbed by mucous membranes beneath the tongue.
- Troches are not weakened by digestive enzymes because they bypass the gastrointestinal tract (GI).
- Troches may be less likely to cause GI upset.
- Sildenadil troches can be taken with or without food. Sildenafil pills and capsules should be taken on an empty stomach.
- Troches may work faster than pills or capsules due to their direct absorption.
How Many Men Have ED?
You're not alone if you suffer from ED. And it may have nothing to do with your libido. You may be sexually aroused but your body just doesn't respond. If that is the case, you may be a perfect candidate for prescription generic Viagra. Since the medication is only available by prescription, your physician will make the final determination and prescribe the appropriate dose.
- About 1 in 5 men report having ED—the likelihood rises with age
- About 150 million men in the US experience ED
- It's projected that in about 5 years, 300 million men will have ED
ED is defined as repeated instances of not being able to maintain or sustain an erection. It can be a result of obesity, smoking, diabetes and other health issues.
85%1 of erectile dysfunction cases are treatable with prescription ED medications like sildenafil/Viagra.
Is Sildenafil As Strong As Viagra?
Yes, sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra, so FDA-approved generics of Viagra should have equal effects as the brand.
How Do Sildenafil and Viagra Work?
Sildenafil treats ED by relaxing smooth muscles found in penis. This then releases pressure against blood vessels enabling them to widen. The blood is then absorbed by the corpus cavernosum, sponge-like regions in the penis. When engorged, the corpus cavernosum form an erection.
This is the normal process of an erection. In men with ED, the muscles may not relax enough, at all or blood flow may be restricted for other reasons.
The reversal of an erection occurs when the muscles contract. This is a normal process of ejaculation. In men with ED, the muscles may contract too soon either before intercourse or before ejaculation.
Sildenafil Is a PDE5 Inhibitor
Sildenafil inhibits the actions of phosphodiesterase type 5, an enzyme that is highly concentrated in the corpus cavernosum. PDE5 causes muscle contraction by degrading cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), a chemical involved in muscle relaxation. With PDE5 not able to impede cGMP, muscles relax and stay relaxed long enough for sufficient vessel dilation and blood inflow to create and sustain an erection.
How Do I Know if I Have ED?
ED is defined as repeated instances of not being able to maintain or sustain an erection. It can be a result of obesity, smoking, diabetes and other health issues. If ignored, ED can cause anxiety and depression.
If you think you may have ED. See your physician.

What Are FSA and HSA Accounts?
FSA's and HSA's are federal programs that make it easy for you to enjoy significant tax benefits for qualified out-of-pocket medical expenses. Each program works a little differently but with each you avoid federal, state and local income taxes on any funds that you use for qualified medical expenses.
FSA tax benefits are administered by your job. Funds in an amount that you decide —within the program limits—are withdrawn from your paycheck without any payroll tax deductions.
Tax benefits with an HSA may be administered that way but there are also other options.
How Do I Use My FSA/HSA Funds?
You can use a pre-loaded debit card or get reimbursed from your FSA or HSA account after you make your purchase or a combination of both methods.
