male enhancement pills side effects

In this blog, we’ll discuss the various male enhancement pills side effects and serious risks and list all-natural alternatives to treat erectile dysfunction.

Male enhancement pills are medications that are used to treat erectile dysfunction in men.

Often prescribed by a doctor, they claim to increase blood flow to the penis in order to increase the duration of an erection. They also claim to boost overall arousal and performance.

However, while male enhancement pills have traditionally been used to treat erectile dysfunction for decades, they often come with a list of unpleasant side effects and downtime.

There are many male enhancement pills on today’s market that are unregulated or have hidden active ingredients that are withheld from consumers.

For these reasons alone, these drugs may no longer be the best or safest option for everyone.

Most Common Male Enhancement Pills Side Effects

Here are the most common side effects linked to male enhancement pills.


The sudden change in blood flow from the increased levels of nitric oxide causes headaches.

Body aches and pains

Some people have muscle aches and pains throughout their bodies while taking erectile dysfunction medications. Others have reported specific pain in their lower back.

Digestive system problems

Your erectile dysfunction medication may cause uncomfortable digestive system side effects. The most common are indigestion and diarrhea.


An increase in nitric oxide can cause some men to become dizzy. The dizziness caused by erectile dysfunction medications is generally mild. However, any dizziness can cause discomfort during everyday activities.


Flushes usually develop on your face and may also spread to parts of your body. Flushes can be mild, like blotchy skin, or severe, like rashes.

Congestion and runny nose

Congestion or a runny or stuffy nose can be a common symptom of erectile dysfunction medications.

More Serious Male Enhancement Pills Side Effects

  • Vision changes
  • Trouble breathing
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Prolonged erection

If you experience any of these symptoms, you should contact your medical professional immediately.

Leading Alternative To Male Enhancement Pills

The most common all-natural treatment for erectile dysfunction – without the use of medication, injections, or surgery – is through what’s known as acoustic wave therapy.

Acoustic wave therapy is the gentle, all-natural use of low-intensity sound waves to target erectile dysfunction at its root cause.

This process uses sound waves to begin to stimulate changes and tissue regeneration within the body. Using non-invasive, low-intensity acoustic waves results in the new formation of blood vessels a.k.a. neovascularization. These new blood vessel formations inside a penis improve blood flow encouraging stronger and longer erections.

WaveTech Therapy is a leading provider of acoustic wave therapy across the United States. You can find your nearest WaveTech Therapy location to book your first complimentary appointment here.
