Many different medications are available to treat erectile dysfunction. Several of these pills contain different active ingredients which can have slightly different effects. If you want to know which might work best for you, you could compare their attributes and even try them out to see how they work. We’ll give you the information here to get you started, by comparing the three most common erectile dysfunction pills: Viagra (Sildenafil), Cialis (Tadalafil), Levitra (Vardenaphil).
Tadalafil lasts far longer than Viagra. It can provide benefits for up to 36 hours, and it is useful for men who don’t want to plan too far ahead, as you only need to take it 30 mins before sex. Because it lasts so long, the potential side effects can last longer as well. The active ingredient tadalafil works the same as Viagra, relaxing the blood vessel walls for better blood flow. This allows for greater sexual control, easier sexual stimulation, improved libido and better sexual performance.
Viagra lasts up to 4 hours, but, generally, the effects will start to wear off after 2 to 3 hours. Viagra contains Sildenafil, which increases blood flow to the penis. You can take Viagra 30-60 mins before sexual activity. A range of dosages are available from 25mg to 100mg, so you can tailor the strength to suit your needs.
Levitra last between 4-6 hours, which puts it on par with Viagra. It contains the active ingredient Vardenafil, which relaxes your blood vessel muscles. This encourages blood flow in the same way Viagra and Cialis do. Levitra should be taken about an hour before sexual activity, this gives it time to take full effect, giving you the best results.
Your experience with these pills may vary from person to person, even though they produce very similar effects and use identical mechanisms. Even their side effects are very similar, but the major difference is how long they last for.
If you try one pill and experience side effects, you may want to choose another medication. Levitra is generally considered to have the least side effects, although this can vary with dosage. Cialis is a good option, if you want to take a pill shortly before you have sex.
If the side effects are too severe for you to handle comfortably, you won’t want to experience them for long. In that case, Levitra would be the better choice. If your sexual activity is more spontaneous, Cialis may be the best option. It works within 30 mins and can last for 36 hours. We recommend starting with an ED Trial Pack, to try out the different medications to see which is best for you.
Your doctor may have a recommendation in mind for you to treat your ED, but it is not wrong to ask about using one over the other because of concerns you may have or preferences you may hold.
