SUBLINGUAL ED PILLS

Sublingual ED pills are pills that are designed to be placed under the tongue.  When a pill is designed in this fashion it is called a troche and is designed to melt and be absorbed under the tongue.

* Sometimes medications are designed as a troche to allow for more complete absorption.in a shorter period of time, usually about 15 minutes.  Troche may also be referred to as pills, tablets and lozenges.

While these sublingual troche can be made from sildenafil, the same ingredient that ViagraŽ is made from, they are not FDA approved in the sublingual form.  The use of a sublingual troche of sildenafil, a compounded medication, would constitute a legal, but off-label use of an otherwise FDA approved medication.

Sublingual medications in general are usually less effected by a recent meal or alcohol consumption, because they have less exposure to gastric acid and enzymes.

A sublingual troche of sildenafil should have a similar side effect profile to ViagraŽ, but as this is a relatively new compounded medication and as it is not FDA approved, the side effects and safety profile are not fully known.  There is the possibility that the sublingual sildenafil troche side effects may be more severe than the orally administered pills.  The most common side effects of sildenafil are headache, nausea, nasal congestion and skin flushing. There are also some recent reports that this class of drugs may increase a man's chance of developing malignant melanoma, a type of skin cancer.

*  While we will certainly try to help all of our patients, as with any medical treatment, there is no guarantee of specific results, as results can and usually do vary from patient to patient. All numbers and time frames mentioned are approximate and may vary from patient to patient.
