Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy is pleased to announce cost-effective treatment options for men suffering from sexual health issues such as erectile dysfunction (ED). Our compounding pharmacists have developed innovative quick-dissolving tablets (QDTs) that can be placed under the tongue. Both Tadalafil and Sildenafil are available in this unique dosage form, and many of Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy’s formulas cost as little as $2 per dose.

Treatment Options for Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Quick dissolve tablets do not need to be taken with a glass of water or food and may offer a more rapid onset of action.

Our pharmacists have also developed quick dissolve tablets that combine Apomorphine with Tadalafil and Sildenafil. Apomorphine is an oral erectogenic agent taken sublingually (placed under the tongue). It exerts its effect in areas of the brain that are involved in the triggering of the erection cascade. It dissolves rapidly and results in an erection in approximately 20 minutes. In trials in over 4000 subjects representative of the general ED population, beneficial effects were seen in a significant percentage of men.

Ingredients Used with Tadalafil and Sildenafil

Other ingredients that are commonly used in combination with Tadalafil and Sildenafil QDTs include Oxytocin, PT-141, L-Arginine, Niacin, and Vitamin B12.

Oxytocin is a hormone produced primarily in the hypothalamus and acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain. This powerful hormone plays a huge role in relationships and how we partner up with others. Please note that oxytocin is destroyed in the gastrointestinal tract, so topicals, sublingual drops or troches, and nasal sprays are the best routes of administration.

PT-141 is the prior developmental code given name for Bremelanotide. This is a peptide originally developed as a sunless tanning agent. It is a melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) that affects sexual arousal, aiding enhanced libido levels and penile erections.

L-arginine is an amino acid that helps make proteins. It also becomes the gas nitric oxide (NO) in the body. NO is important for erectile function because it helps blood vessels relax, so more oxygen-rich blood can circulate through your arteries. Healthy blood flow to the arteries of the penis is essential for normal erectile function. Studies show that a significant proportion of erectile dysfunction patients have low L-arginine levels.

Vitamin B12 can also be added to Tadalafil and Sildenafil QDTs. A report from Harvard University highlighted a study that has linked low levels of B12 to erectile dysfunction. A causal link hasn’t been nailed down, but the B vitamin is used by every system in the body, particularly in cell metabolism and the production of blood — two essential factors in getting and keeping a quality erection.

A daily dose of Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, improves erectile function in men with high cholesterol according to some studies. Results showed that men with moderate or severe erectile dysfunction (ED) who took niacin reported an improvement in their ability to maintain an erection.
