About Viagra and Cialis Effects

Erectile dysfunction is the problem many men face with. However, this doesn’t have to be terrifying issue, since there are medications and therapies that can help you. Drugs commonly used for treatment of erectile dysfunction are Viagra and Cialis. These medications may have different active components, but both work in the same way. Viagra contains sildenafil, while Cialis contains tadalafil. Both of the substances inhibit specific enzyme (known as PDE5) in the penis which regulates the blood flow in that part of the body. Inhibition of this enzyme dilates the blood vessels, relax corpus cavernosum in the penis and thus enhance the erection. However, what you should know is that these drugs don’t cause erection without some sexual stimulation.

There is some difference between these drugs when it comes to the time need to experience their effects. Viagra should be used about an hour before the sexual activity and the pill’s effect last for some 4 hour. Cialis, on the other hand, can be used on a daily basis, in doses of 2.5mg or 5mg. There is also another type of Cialis, often called the weekend pill. This type of Cialis tablets has long lasting effect and it should work for 36 hours. Cialis is therefore found to be more easy to use, because men don’t have to plan their sexual activities any more. Your doctor should be involved in the decision making process which medication is suitable for you, according to your condition and medical history.

Speaking about the dose, Viagra comes in as 25mg, 50mg or 100mg tablets. Cialis can be found as 2.5mg, 5mg or 20mg pills. In most cases, it is advised to start with lower doses and watch for the results. If there is no expected improvement of sexual function, the dose should be adjusted.

Adverse Effects of Erectile Dysfunction Pills

Both Viagra and Cialis may cause unwanted effects on the men who use them. Viagra is frequently the reason for flushed face, headaches and stomach problems. Some other problems are rarer and these can include: bluish or blurry vision and the sensitivity to light in some cases. Cialis can be blamed for flushing and headaches as well, but also for muscle and back pains and runny nose. Sudden loss of vision may also be caused by the use of this drug. Patients experiencing this problem may also notice dizziness and ringing in the ears at the same time.
