Dealing with Flushing

PDE 5 inhibitors work by dilating blood vessels in the penis allowing for an erection to occur. Sometimes blood vessels in other parts of the body can dilate causing side effects like nasal congestion and facial flushing.

This is not dangerous.

1️⃣ Lowest effective dose

Flushing can be minimized by taking the lowest effective dose of the medication.

2️⃣ Cool Room w/ Damp Cloth

It may help to keep the room cool and use cool damp cloths to your face to decrease the discomfort of the flushing if it is intense.

Always consult your physician if you're experience side effects.
