Viagra, Cialis and Levitra – which is best?
What is Viagra?
Viagra is the
most well-known of the three as it has been around for over 15 years. This
means that a lot is known about its effects and side effects. It works within
an hour of taking a tablet, and is best taken on an empty stomach. The effects
of Viagra will last for four to six hours. Viagra
was developed and originally marketed by the pharmaceutical company Pfizer, and
until 2013 Pfizer was the only company allowed to sell it. When Pfizer’s patent
on Viagra expired, the market was open for other companies to produce the
medicine, albeit under its generic name Sildenafil, rather than the brand name
exactly the same active ingredient as Viagra (sildenafil citrate), and works in
the same way. However, because it is the generic version of the medicine,
rather than the brand, Sildenafil is considerably cheaper.
effects of Cialis (tadalafil) last
much longer than those for Viagra or Levitra (up to 36 hours) so many men
prefer it as involves less planning. The downside is
that if you do experience side effects these can last for longer too. Like
Levitra, Cialis is not affected much by food, so can be taken after a meal.
Alcohol, however, may reduce its effects.
last for a similar amount of time as Viagra (four to six hours). The main
difference to Viagra is that Levitra tends to be less affected by food or
alcohol so can be taken with meals. There is also some evidence that Levitra is
more effective in diabetics than other erectile dysfunction medicines.
Viagra, Cialis or Levitra best for me?
erectile dysfunction medicines suit different people, but it is difficult to
tell which one will be best for you until you have tried them all. While
a particular erectile dysfunction medicine may not work for you first time
round, we recommend taking it at least eight times before giving up and trying
another. This is because it can often take this long to determine whether or
not a medicine is right for you. We also
often suggest that men initially try all three erectile dysfunction medicines
to see which is best for them, and we offer a starter pack of Viagra, Levitra
and Cialis for those suitable. You can Viagra, Cialis and Levitra safely online through LloydsPharmacy’s Online Doctor service. If appropriate,
our London based GPs can prescribe you treatment for erectile dysfunction with
Same-Day Collection, as well as Next-Day or FREE Standard Delivery. If you’re
unsure which ED treatment will be best for you then take our free ED
assessment and our doctors will help you decide:
How effective are Viagra, Cialis and
Cialis and Levitra have all been shown to be effective in 60-70% of men with
erectile dysfunction. However, as above, it is possible that
one medicine will be more or less effective than the others, and therefore it
is best to initially try out all three to see which is best.
the side effects of Viagra, Cialis and Levitra?
three have similar side effects – headaches, stuffy nose, facial flushing,
stomach ache or back pain being the most common. Some men who have had bad side
effects with, say, Viagra will have fewer with Levitra or Cialis, but similarly
some find the prolonged side effects of Cialis troubling. Viagra,
Cialis and Levitra should not be taken by men who take medicines or
recreational drugs containing nitrates. Cialis should not be taken by men who
are on medicines called alpha blockers which are sometimes used to treat
prostate problems or high blood pressure. Men who take alpha blockers can use
Viagra or Levitra but must allow at least a six hour gap between taking the
alpha blocker and Viagra or Levitra.
Viagra, Cialis and Levitra work?
Levitra and Cialis all work in a similar way. They all relax the blood vessels
which supply blood to the penis, meaning that more blood can get there when
aroused. These medicines are not aphrodisiacs, so you will still
need to be sexually stimulated in order to get an erection. Sildenafil
and Spedra are two
other major erectile dysfunction medicines which work in a similar way to
Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. As outlined above, Sildenafil is the generic
version of Viagra, and contains the same active ingredient. Out
of the five, Spedra is the newest medicine on the market, and takes the
shortest amount of time to work – just 15 minutes in some men. If your
ED has a psychological cause, such as stress, anxiety or depression,
counselling can be an effective treatment. This
usually takes the form of either couples’ psychosexual counselling, or
one-on-one sessions with a psychosexual counsellor. Sometimes even just talking
over the issues with a trained professional can help treat the problem. It
can be a while before any effects from counselling are seen, so it is often
combined with prescription medicines such as Viagra, Cialis or Levitra which
treat ED in the short term.
