The fine line between Viagra, Levitra and Cialis

When it comes to treating ED, you will find hundreds of options which include supplements, pills, vacuum devices, and urethra suppositories.  However, there are only 3 choices which you should consider: Viagra, Levitra and Cialis.  These are the only medicines for treating erectile dysfunction which are FDA approved, proven to work, and backed by hundreds of clinical studies.

At first glance, it may seem like Viagra, Levitra and Cialis are identical when it comes to treating ED.  If you read about their mechanisms of action, side effects, administration,, precautions, and interactions, you will find the exact same information.  However, each of these ED treatments is unique from one another.  It is important that you understand the subtle differences so you can make sure you are getting the best treatment for you.

Many men and doctors prefer Viagra as the treatment choice for ED.  The reason for this is not because Viagra works better than Levitra or Cialis.  Since Viagra was the first of the ED drugs to gain approval (in 1998), it is the most-well known and trusted ED treatment.  Viagra got a lot of hype when it first came out since it completely revolutionized the sex lives of millions of men.  Over 20 million men worldwide have taken Viagra and the term Viagra has even become a household name.

Even though Viagra is the most notorious ED treatment, it started to become outdated when Levitra hit the market in 2003.  Even though Levitra and Viagra are almost identical, men began to prefer Levitra because it works slightly faster than Viagra and its effects also last somewhat longer.  However, even Levitra was blown out of the competition when Cialis was introducedCialis completely stands out from Viagra and Levitra because it is fast-acting and has long-lasting effects.  Also, Cialis allows men much more freedom when treating their ED.

Once Cialis is taken, it is typically much faster to act than either Viagra or Levitra.  Studies show that Cialis can act as quickly as 15 minutes in many men.  This is much shorter than Viagra or Levitra which can act in 30 minutes but usually take longer.  The major benefit of Cialis is that its effects can last for up to 36 hours.  That means men can take one pill and not worry about its effects wearing off before they have a chance to fully enjoy their romantic encounter.

Cialis is also the only of the three approved ED pills which offers a daily treatment option.  While you may take Cialis on an as-needed basis like Viagra or Levitra, you can also take low dosages of it daily.  This is proven effective and safe for treating ED every day.  The obvious benefits to this are profuse, especially for men in long-term relationships who wish to improve sex life without sticking to a dosage schedule.

Even though Viagra, Levitra and Cialis are all very similar in some ways, note that they are not the same.  You should talk with your health care provider about which ED treatment is best for you.
