Medical student in the United Kingdom, having previously studied Biology at A-Level. I spend a good deal of my time volunteering with St John Ambulance, which I find fantastically rewarding and when I'm not writing essays I'm handling flags here on Bio.SE.

comment Pharmacology: Drug Administration
I would say that the reason sildenafil is typically preferred over alprostadil is largely due to Viagra being a nice friendly tablet and alprostadil being a particularly daunting injection into a sensitive area for patients. Perhaps this goes some way to indicating one of the main reasons many drugs are enteral in administration - patients find it easier.
