To evaluate the efficacy and safety of Elonza (generic product of sildenafil) 100 mg, a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor, in Thai men with erectile dysfunction (ED).

After sildenafil administration, erectile function domain scores were significantly increased from baseline, 5.02 (p < 0.001) and 7.19 (p < 0.001) in one month and two months, respectively. Intercourse satisfaction domain scores and overall satisfaction domain scores were significantly increased from baseline, 3.17 (p < 0.001) and 1.74 (p < 0.001) in two months, respectively. Most treatment emergent adverse events were mild or moderate. The most frequent treatment-emergent adverse events were flushing (13.2%), nasal congestion (9.8%), abnormal vision (4.9%), headache (4.4%), dizziness (2.9%), and dyspepsia (0.5%).
