Semaglutide is administered by a subcutaneous injection, commonly dosed once weekly. Dosing may be increased after one month if needed.

Taking one of these tablets will not automatically produce an erection. Sexual stimulation is needed first. Oral erectile dysfunction medications are not aphrodisiacs, will not cause excitement and are not needed in people who get normal erections.
The medications vary in dosage, how long they work and side effects. Possible side effects include flushing, nasal congestion, headache, visual changes, backache and stomach upset.
