Cialis is fast becoming the most popular medication for treating erectile dysfunction thanks to its advantages over the more well-known Viagra.

Viagra holds about 50% of the market, Cialis is catching up quickly with about 40% and Levitra is third with about 10%.

All three contain very similar active ingredients and essentially work in the same way by blocking an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5.

They also boost a chemical in your body called nitric oxide. This action encourages the muscles in your penis to relax allowing for better blood inflow.

It takes about 30 minutes for Cialis to work, while Viagra and Levitra are to be taken 60 minutes before sexual activity.

Taking Viagra and Levitra on a full stomach can delay the effectiveness of the drug but that’s not the case with Cialis which works the same when taken with or without food.

All three drugs help you maintain an erection long enough to have sex but which is the best one for you?

Cialis Vs Viagra

If you need a solid erection for about 2-4 hours then Viagra is the better option. Its a drug that is used only when needed taken 30 minutes to 1 hour prior to sexual activity.

Cialis tablets can be taken in the morning and will still be effective in the evening. It is called the “weekend pill” because its effects last for up to 36 hours. Viagra and Levitra are shorter acting; their effect fades in about 4-5 hours.

Cialis for daily use

Men who choose Cialis have two choices. They can take the higher dose (10-20 mg) which is intended for use prior to anticipated sexual activity and is not for continuous daily use.

There’s no need to take an additional tablet during that time period.

A lower dose (5 mg) also is available. This dose is for patients who anticipate more frequent sexual activity (i.e. at least twice weekly).

When taking the tablet daily, it may take up to 1 week for a full effect on Erectile Dysfunction.

Cialis and alcohol

The manufacturer of Cialis recommends that people taking this medication should not consume large amounts of alcohol.

Taking the tablet together with large amounts of alcohol can cause low blood pressure when you stand up from a sitting or lying position.

This can cause a headache, light-headedness, dizziness, and fainting.

Levitra and Viagra do not seem to cause low blood pressure when taken with alcohol.

Cialis generic

Generic medicines may differ in their packaging or in the size or shape of the tablets, but they must contain the same active ingredient as the original.

The quality, strength, dosage, and safety must also be the same.

When buying generic Cialis online, ordering from large online pharmacies like CVS or Walgreens is usually the safest option. Its cheaper option as opposed to buying from the manufacturer’s site.

Cialis side effects

All drugs may cause side effects. However, many people have no side effects or only have minor side effects. Speak to a doctor if any of these side effects or any other side effects do not go away:

  • Flushing
  • Headache
  • Back pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Upset stomach
  • Nose or throat irritation
  • Stuffy nose
  • Runny nose

Do not take Cialis if you take medicines called “nitrates” which are medicines used for the treatment of angina (“chest pain”) or other heart conditions.

Many studies emphasize that it is dangerous to take erectile dysfunction drugs and nitrates at the same time as it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure.

In general, nitrates can be given 24 hours after taking Viagra or Levitra or 48 hours after taking Cialis.

Liquid Cialis

You can buy Liquid Cialis online but its intended for laboratory research use only. The bottle will simply be labeled “Tadalafil” and is NOT sold for human use.
