ED medications belong to a group called phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. Researchers, originally studying their beneficial effects on reducing blood pressure, accidentally discovered men reporting an interesting side effect – erections.
PDE5 inhibitors cause blood vessels to relax, allowing blood to escape into the surrounding tissue to fill it up with blood. This action allows your penis to get and maintain a firm erection when aroused.
