What is the difference between Eroxon® and oral PDE5i’s? HCP

They work differently. Oral PDE5i’s generally must be taken 30-60 minutes before sex. They work by suppressing the enzyme which lowers the level of cGMP. Increasing cGMP levels increases blood flow and normalises erections. Eroxon® is a topical gel that works by stimulating nerve endings on the head of the penis increasing blood flow in the penis and giving an erection. The action of Eroxon® as a topical gel is fast, helping men achieve an erection within 10 minutes.

While oral medications are a good treatment option for many men, they are contraindicated in some patient groups, such as nitrate users (where there is risk of severe hypotension). As a drug-free topical product Eroxon® has no known drug interactions.
