About Stendra (avanafil)

Stendra belongs to a drug class known as phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors, which relax muscles in the walls of blood vessels and increases blood flow to the penis.

Stendra is used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). Stendra is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation as avanafil, as well as under different brand names.

Stendra may be prescribed as an oral tablet. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage prescribed.

If you're prescribed Stendra, be sure to complete the full course of the ED medication unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to stop. If you don’t complete your prescription, the ED medication may not fully treat your erectile dysfunction. 

Stendra uses

There is one FDA-approved use for Stendra, but it may also be used off-label to treat other conditions. Your online healthcare provider may prescribe it for the following reason. It’s also possible that your doctor may prescribe it for other reasons not listed here. If you have questions about why a medication is prescribed, ask your online doctor or pharmacist.

  • Erectile dysfunction

    Stendra is FDA-approved to treat male sexual function problems, such as erectile dysfunction (ED). It works by increasing blood flow to the penis, which can help men get and keep an erection. Stendra does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases or infections.

Stendra side effects

  • The side effects associated with taking Stendra are typically mild. Most Stendra side effects are associated with low blood pressure. Common side effects of Stendra may include:

    • Headache

    • Flushing (warmth, redness, or tingly feeling)

    • Cold symptoms, such as stuffy nose or sore throat

    Other side effects, which are less common but might be more severe, could include:

    • Sudden vision loss

    • Shortness of breath

    • Lightheadedness, or feeling like you're going to pass out

    You should call your doctor if you notice any of these side effects, or if you develop any other new or concerning symptoms. The use of Stendra in children under age 18 is not recommended.

How to take Stendra

Your pharmacist will provide you with instructions on how to take your Stendra prescription. Be sure to read your prescription label and follow the instructions. Call your doctor or pharmacy if you have any questions.

Stendra can come in different forms and doses, so be sure to follow the specific instructions on your prescription. Stendra is typically taken only when needed, about 15 to 30 minutes before sexual activity, at a dose of 100 mg. You can take Stendra with or without food.

Stendra can help you achieve an erection when sexual stimulation occurs. However, an erection will not happen just by taking avanafil.

What to avoid while taking Stendra

Stendra has 256 drug interactions. Don’t change what you are taking without checking with your doctor or pharmacist. That includes other medications or supplements, as well as other drugs. 

Possible drug interactions with Stendra include:

  • Other ED medications, such as Viagra (sildenafil) and Cialis (tadalafil)

  • Certain antibiotic and antifungal medicines

  • Medications used to treat high blood pressure or prostate disorder

  • Hepatitis C medication

  • HIV/AIDs medication

Drinking alcohol while taking avanafil can cause low blood pressure, which can lead to dizziness, lightheadedness, and other adverse effects. Avoid using Stendra with recreational drugs called "poppers."

Avoid taking avanafil more than once a day. Call your doctor for medical advice if you experience a painful or prolonged erection.

Medication alternatives to Stendra

If your healthcare provider prefers to put you on another treatment altogether, they may suggest other PDE5 inhibitors or an ED medication in another drug class. Here are some common doctor-recommended alternatives based on your health issue:

Most major insurance plans accepted
