If you’ve walked into a gas station or convenience store in the last decade, you’ve probably seen a sampling of the pills that are available.

The packages are usually brightly colored with names like Black Ant or Tri Power Zen, and covered with pictures of scantily clad women and virile, muscular men.

Asian erection solutions may work great, but if the label is in Japanese or Mandarin, then you have no idea of the correct dosage, the ingredients, or any possible side effects.

Not only will this let you know if there are any ingredients included that you may be allergic to, it will give you the opportunity to find out if the pills will react badly to any medication you are currently taking. If you’re not sure, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Also, be wary of any products that include names such as Sildenafil in the active ingredients, especially if they quite obviously come from overseas.

It doesn’t matter if you think these side effects are minor. If you start experiencing any sort of side effect, contact a medical professional immediately. Take the pills or package with you when you go to the hospital or doctor’s office. This provides the doctor or nurse with all the information that they need to make a proper diagnosis and choose the appropriate course of treatment.

If it solves your erection dilemma without any nasty side effects, it may be worth the wait.


If you are experiencing erection problems, then your first step should be to make an appointment with your doctor to determine, if possible, the underlying cause of the problems. If he or she determines that you’re healthy enough for sexual activity and you can try penis pills without risk to your health, and then simply remember these simple guidelines. These easy do’s and don’ts will make it easier to find the best pill for you. Good luck!
