Did you know that Viagra is not the only ED medication available in Canada and the USA? Online pharmacies offer a wide range of alternatives, many of which become highly popular among users. Let’s observe the most popular generic medications for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
Cialis — best for long-term treatment
Cialis is a drug that contains tadalafil active component: it relaxes muscles of blood vessel walls and boosts blood flow in some certain areas of the body. This medication is widely used by men to treat sexual function problems (erectile dysfunction or impotence) from a long-term perspective since it improves the health of the prostate gland. Cialis also increases blood flow to penile tissues when combined with sexual stimulation. Besides, tadalafil helps to maintain an erection for a longer time, promoting more satisfying sexual interaction.
Tadalafil is recommended to relieve the following symptoms of an enlarged prostate (they reveal in case of benign prostatic hyperplasia):
- difficulty urinating;
- weak urine stream;
- sudden or frequent need to urinate in daytime or nighttime.
In this case, tadalafil relaxes the smooth muscles of the bladder and the prostate.
Like any other medication for erectile dysfunction, Cialis inhibits PDE5 substance. However, it acts for more than 4-5 hours like Viagra — Cialis effect lasts over 30 hours!
Levitra — minimal side effects
Levitra is an ED (erectile dysfunction) medication that contains vardenafil, almost the same active component as sildenafil. It is mostly produced in the form of pills and is prescribed for men 18-70 years old to restore normal erection and improve sexual life. As a rule, the drug is used before sexual act in recreational purposes, however, some types of Levitra are suitable for long-term treatment of erectile dysfunction.
In its essence, Levitra is a PDE5 inhibitor: it suppresses enzyme PDE5 that restricts blood flow to penile tissues and prevents relaxation of muscles. Vardenafil, the active component of Levitra, promotes better blood supply to cavernous bodies of the penis and makes erection last as long as a man needs. It can greatly improve the quality of sexual intercourse due to the following effects:
- Relaxes penile tissues and maintains sufficient blood flow in sexual organs.
- Boosts penis sensitivity, which makes sexual intercourse more pleasant and helps to reach intense orgasms easier.
- Accelerates the recovery interval between ejaculations, and allows reaching several orgasms during a short life span.
- Improves control over erection and can even slightly decrease the size of the erected penis.
Penegra — another sildenafil-based tab
Penegra is another powerful medication for erectile dysfunction treatment: it boosts erection and helps to maintain it within 4 hours, which is more than enough for full-blown sexual intercourse. This drug deals with impotence caused by different factors — physical and psychological. Sildenafil, the main component of Penegra, works by inhibiting PDE5 – an enzyme that makes penile muscles contract and restrains blood supply to penile tissues.
This generic version of Sildenafil Citrate is produced by Zydus Cadila an internationally renowned company. It’s already popular among hundreds of thousands of users and preferred thanks to its reasonable price. Penegra is sold without a prescription, however, it’s always better to consult with a doctor prior to using it. The medication is not equally suitable for every man, and only a doctor can define for sure whether it’ll be safe in your exact case. Sometimes dosage correction is required, and users with allergy or intolerance of Sildenafil have to search for alternative options.
Generally, this is a cheaper analog of Viagra, that’s why many online users prefer it. Penegra tablets appear to be twice as cheap as Viagra: if you buy a big package, one Penegra tablet will cost you about $1,3, while Viagra pill is worth about $3 and more. As for the quality of Penegra, it’s the same as of Viagra’s — both medications are based on Sildenafil Citrate and provide the same effect.
Stendra — quickest effect possible
Stendra has appeared on the market recently, but quickly became a popular drug thanks to the speed of action. Clinical trials have shown that it helped about 77% of men to reach the desired effect. Among males with erectile dysfunction caused by diabetes, about 63% have managed to get erection. As a rule, it is taken 20-30 minutes before sexual activity. Good news: there are no food or alcohol restrictions! Avanafil action is not postponed or affected by meals. It may cause erection within 15 minutes, which makes this medication perfect for men who tend not to plan sexual intercourse. The erection lasts for 4 hours.
Caverta — exceptional quality and efficiency
Caverta is the trade name for pills that improve male potency thanks to sildenafil citrate, a selective inhibitor of phosphodiesterase type 5. This is a product of Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd. — one of the leaders in the global pharmaceutical market. Caverta pills are available in two dosages — 50 and 100 mg, which is very convenient for the optimal selection of an effective dose of the drug.
