Medications are often the first treatment tried for erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation (PE). For most men who have trouble keeping an erection firm enough for sex (erectile dysfunction), these medications work well and cause few side effects.
Sildenafil (Viagra) and Tadalafil (Cialis) are both medications that reverse erectile dysfunction by increasing nitric oxide, a chemical naturally produced by your body. Nitric oxide opens and relaxes blood vessels in the penis, helping you get and keep an erection. These erectile dysfunction medications don't increase your sex drive, though, and cause erections only when you are sexually stimulated.
Bremelanotide PT 141 was developed from Melanotan II, targeting its aphrodisiac effects. This peptide has been shown to have a substantial effect on libido, generating sexual arousal in both men and women within minutes of administration. It has been shown to be effective in treating erectile dysfunction, even in men who have not responded to other ED treatments, such as Viagra and Cialis. This peptide is also able to cross the blood-brain-barrier, bypassing the vascular system and acting at the level of the central nervous system. PT- 141 has been shown to have significant results on male test patients, with what are described as “intense” and “frequent” erections lasting between 2-6 hours.
Tramadex is a blend of two compounded combination of medications which are used to treat premature ejaculation (PE). It can be combined with Viagra or Cialis. It works by the targeted modulation of synaptic receptors and processes of the central nervous system that are involved in the ejaculatory process. Treating PE with Tramadex can help to increase Intravaginal Ejaculatory Latency Time or the Time-to-Ejaculation (T2E) thereby enhancing enjoyment of sexual intercourse. This treatment has the ability to both extend the T2E as well as completely suppress the ejaculatory response at higher doses on the order of two to three capsules.
Comparing Erectile Dysfunction Medications
Viagra, Cialis, PT 141 and Tramadex — How Are They're Different
Although they work in similar ways, each of these medications has a slightly different chemical makeup.

We will consider these factors when deciding if one of these medications is a good choice for you.
Viagra- take it without food, no more than once a day, take it 60 minutes or longer before sex, effective up to 4 hours.
Cialis- take it without food, no more than once a day, take it 30 minutes or longer before sex, effective for up to 36 hours
PT 141- injection done a couple hours before sex, effects may be felt up to 12 hours from the time of administration and have been known to last for up to 3 days, diminishing each day.
