We are inviting you to take part in a research study for men who experience symptoms of erectile dysfunction (ED), to help researchers learn more about your experience with an erectile dysfunction medication.

Would you like to participate in a research study for an FDA approved erectile dysfunction medication that is currently available by prescription and could become over-the-counter?

Subjects who qualify and take part in the study may be paid up to $200 for participating and completing the interview. No health insurance is required.

The ED-OTC Study is collecting information to help support bringing an erectile dysfunction medication over-the-counter (to make it available without a doctor’s prescription).

You may qualify for the ED-OTC Study if you:

  • Have symptoms of erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Are interested in a drug to treat your ED symptoms that could be available over-the-counter (OTC)
  • Are 18 years of age or older

Approximately 740 subjects will participate in this remote study across the United States. If you qualify after filling out the online pre-screener, you will be invited to schedule a short 10-to-15-minute televisit interview to complete one additional eligibility step. You will be paid $10 through a digital prepaid MasterCard for completing this additional eligibility interview.

If you qualify after the additional eligibility interview, you will be scheduled for the study interview appointment (also done via a televisit) that may take approximately 75 minutes.

Subjects who qualify and take part in the study interview may receive up to $200 through a digital prepaid MasterCard for participation. The interview is recommended to be completed in a quiet, private space and free of distractions.

About Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to maintain or achieve a firm erection for sexual intercourse. Some people may refer to ED as impotence, although this is not a common term.1

The treatment plan for erectile dysfunction usually depends on the underlying cause. In some cases, a combination of prescription medication and therapy may be required.
