Staxyn with Food
For the most part, Staxyn works well with foods and drinks. There are, however, a few exceptions. An example of a bad combination would be Staxyn with food such as grapefruits or Staxyn with drinks like alcohol or grapefruit juice. Grapefruit products are not a good combination with Staxyn because the fruit increases the plasma concentration of medications in the blood. This makes the body react as if there is a greater dosage of the erectile dysfunction medication than there really is. Staxyn works by entering the blood stream around the penis and blocking the phosphodiesterase-PDE5 enzyme. This leads to better blood flow to the penis and extended or harder erections for up to six hours.
Foods like grapefruits affect Staxyn in the blood. Staxyn food combinations like this are most likely to happen with orally taken medications. This is because many oral medicines are substrates of the CYP450 3A4 isoenzyme. The best advice is for patients taking this medication to avoid also consuming grapefruit products. This is one of the many reasons the FDA have deemed Staxyn an prescription only medicine. KwikMed are licensed to prescribe it online after a discreet consultation.
Staxyn After Food
It is perfectly fine to take Staxyn after food, however, this is not a firm rule. This means it can be taken without food too. In terms of Staxyn with food it is important to avoid the foods mentioned above. Staxyn is taken by placing the pill from the blister pack on the tongue, or under it, and allowing the pill to dissolve by itself. In this manner the tablet should not be swallowed and does not need to be taken with water or any other liquid. This procedure should be followed one to two hours prior to sexual intercourse and should only be done once in any 24 hour period.
