Avanafil

Pronounced

"a-VAN-a-fil"

Uses

Avanafil is used to treat male sexual function problems (impotence or erectile dysfunction-ED). In combination with sexual stimulation, avanafil works by increasing blood flow to the penis to help a man get and keep an erection.

This drug does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, hepatitis B, gonorrhea, syphilis). To decrease your risk of infection, always use an effective barrier method (latex or polyurethane condom/dental dams) during all sexual activity. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.

Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking avanafil and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
