Did you know that sales of erectile dysfunction medication doubles in the run up to Christmas, perhaps reflecting the fears of thousands of men that their bedroom performance will fail them over the festive period

Erectile dysfunction affects more than 10% of men under 60, one in five men over 60 and almost a third of men over the age of 70. While the problem is widespread and should not be considered a cause for embarrassment, the fact is that many men’s fear of inadequacy can lead to a reduced interest in sex and overall negative feelings of anxiety and depression.

At Christmas, an increased pressure to engage in sexual activities combined with an increased food and alcohol intake creates a catch 22 when it comes to impotence. Excess alcohol consumption can significantly increase the likelihood of erectile dysfunction symptoms, as can a generally unhealthy lifestyle — which more of us experience at Christmas time.

So it may come as no surprise then that, compared to a typical month of the year, demand for impotence medication increases by as much as 61 per cent in the run up to Christmas, according to research.

These findings suggest that the reasons behind this increase in erectile dysfunction medication usually falls into one of two categories: the emotional strain of Christmas, or the increased desire to get intimate over the festive period.

Finding the best treatment for erectile dysfunction

For men who believe they may need the help of impotence medication, the choice of different products on the market can be somewhat confusing. While almost everyone is familiar with the market-leading Viagra, there are many different prescription medications available today that may be better suited to some men.

Oral tablets are the most popular form of treatment for erectile dysfunction as they are clinically proven to tackle symptoms and provide a reliable and fast-acting solution to impotence. Popular options are Viagra and Sildenafil. Sildenafil is medically equivalent to Viagra but is more affordable because it is not a branded medication. Both of these options, along with several other leading competitors, are available through Express Pharmacy.

Another popular medication is Cialis and its newly released generic alternative, Tadalafil. Like many other erectile dysfunction medicines, Tadalafil and Cialis work by increasing blood flow to the penis, helping men to achieve a firm, maintainable erection when sexually aroused. One of the most popular aspects of these two treatments is the fact that the active ingredient Tadalafil takes effect in just 30 minutes but can provide up to 36 hours of effectiveness – much longer than Viagra or generic Sildenafil.

Self care to tackle ED

In addition to prescription medication, it is important that men pay attention to their health and wellbeing at this time of year if they wish to avoid the problem of impotence. Generally speaking, alcohol consumption, poor diet, stress and anxiety can have a detrimental effect on gentlemen’s ability to gain and maintain an erection. Yet many men will spend December eating rich food and drinking heavily as the party season progresses.

Paying a close attention to the physical and psychological factors that can influence impotence and taking steps to avoid excess at this time of year can help to complement erectile dysfunction medication.
