Avana (Avanafil) is a special oral medication given out to men who struggle with erectile dysfunction. The way it works is it helps to relax smooth muscle within the corpus cavernosum in order to increase blood circulation to a man’s penis. As a result this enables a man to get and keep an erection when he gets sexual stimulation. It can be given out alongside other medications or for any number of unlisted conditions.

Can severe depression or anxiety interfere with the proper working of this medication and if so
what’s the solution to get past this?
One of the major things a man might be worried about when he takes any form of erectile dysfunction medication is the idea that it still might not work. A man might feel that his problem is so severe is so psychologically ingrained that no medication will really have the desired effect. Well this isn’t the case. Yes, men who suffer from depression or anxiety will need to find methods to get over this, but using Avana can help.
The reason why a man might have anxiety or depression in the first place is because of ED. This makes sense, because a man who can’t get it up and keep it up in order to please his partner is going to feel like less of a man. He’s going to feel like his worth as a man is not the same as it was before he had ED problems. Anxiety will come in the form of trying to get and maintain an erection even when a man feels strongly that he won’t be able to do this.
It puts a lot of pressure on a man and all of this only leads to increased anxiety or depression or at least increases the probability of experiencing it. When a man decides to use a treatment such as Avana that’s designed to be effective, then he can start to feel better about his condition. The reason for this is because he’ll have an effective means to combat the primary thing that’s causing him to feel low on himself.
As far as whether or not depression or anxiety can interfere with how well Avana works, the answer is yes but only to a certain degree. A man must still be in the mood for sex or have the right form of sexual stimulation in order to ensure he gets the primary benefit of using this drug. Also, if he’s using any medications designed to help treat anxiety or depression then these can interfere with how well Avana works.
Avana is designed to work well, but this doesn’t mean it will work perfectly. This is why it’s going to be important for a man to monitor himself while using this drug just to make sure nothing goes wrong (the drug causing serious side effects or not working as well as it should). Depression and anxiety are issues that need to be addressed separately as this drug isn’t designed to treat those problems directly.
