While phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors like sildenafil (active ingredient in Viagra) and tadalafil (active ingredient in Cialis) are the most commonly used treatment for ED, but they do not work for everyone. In such cases, compounded sublingual apomorphine tablets may be an alternative.
Apomorphine is a dopamine receptor agonist that works by stimulating the release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that plays a role in sexual arousal and erection. When taken sublingually, apomorphine tablets are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, resulting in a quick onset of action in about 20 minutes. Clinical studies have shown that apomorphine is effective in treating ED, particularly in men with mild to moderate ED. In one study, more than half of the participants reported improved erections with apomorphine compared to placebo.
Apomorphine is a good alternative when PDE5 inhibitors (sildenafil & tadalafil) fail to work. It can also be used in combination with sildenafil and/or tadalafil for men who do not achieve satisfactory results with PDE5 inhibitors alone. Our pharmacy creates a compounded combination of these in various strengths, based on a prescription order from a physician.
The sublingual route of administration offers several advantages over other ED therapies. First, it is non-invasive and does not require injections or surgery. Second, it has a faster onset of action compared to PDE5 inhibitors, which can take up to an hour to work. However, it’s important to note that apomorphine may cause side effects such as nausea, dizziness, and hypotension (low blood pressure). It should not be used in men with certain medical conditions such as heart disease or those taking certain medications.
In conclusion, compounded sublingual apomorphine tablets are a good alternative for men with ED who do not respond to PDE5 inhibitors. It works by stimulating the release of dopamine and has a rapid onset of action.
