May 21, 2021 Erectile Dysfunction

One of the biggest mistakes people often make when they want to treat a certain illness or condition is to self-medicate or rely on some home remedies, sometimes with severe consequences to their health.

It is important to understand medication (especially prescription medication), to know how it works within the body, and how the treatment can help you get better, or how the medication can effectively treat your symptoms.

Today we are shedding more light on Cialis and Viagra – two brand name prescription medicines that are generally recommended for the effective treatment of erectile dysfunction or male impotence, amongst others.

 

Similarities

The effectiveness of all PDE5 inhibitors like Cialis and Viagra is similar because they are both safe and effective in the treatment of male impotence of erectile dysfunction. Although Viagra is known to be the more expensive brand, some men prefer Cialis because of its longer duration of effect.

Just like with any other prescription medicine, you should first talk to your doctor or pharmacist about your symptoms and overall health, before using either one to treat erectile dysfunction. Both are to be taken orally and can be taken daily if required. Both Cialis and Viagra can also be prescribed to treat other medical conditions like hypertension.

 

Differences

One of the differences between Cialis and Viagra is its ingredients, and the other difference is how long each one works and remains active within the body. Cialis contains a substance known as Tadalafil, which is a PDE5 inhibitor that increases blood flow to the soft tissue of the male organ, to establish sexual arousal. It is available in strengths of 2.5mg and 5mg.

Tadalafil therefore helps you to get sexually aroused (erection) through increased blood flow, and keeps you sexually aroused for as long as you need it. The medication will take effect under an hour after taking it and could last for up to four or five hours, but it has to be taken regularly for the best results. Most men that have used both, however, said that Cialis is a long-lasting erectile dysfunction tablet, of which the effects have been felt for up to a day, two at most.

Viagra on the other hand contains a substance called Sildenafil, which works the same as Tadalafil by increasing blood flow to the male organ, but it is known to last for several hours only, thus it has a shorter-acting effect on the body. Viagra is available in three different strengths, namely 2,5mg, 5mg and the highest dose which is 100mg.

Your health is important – so should your treatment be. There are however many different treatment options available from SimplyMeds Online, click here to view our impotence and erectile dysfunction treatment options.
