Watch Your Back, Viagra: FDA Approves Stendra for Erectile Dysfunction

Last week, the FDA approved a new erectile dysfunction (ED) drug, Stendra, which is said to have a better chance at competing with Viagra than other ED drugs like Cialis and Levitra.

Manufactured by Vivus, Inc., Stendra differs from other drugs in its class because of its ability to work 30 to 60 minutes sooner.

“You can argue this is the first potential on-demand drug [for sex].”
