Which anti-erectile dysfunction medication is right for you?


Erectile dysfunction is a stressful condition at any age. Therefore choosing a method for treatment that works the best for you is highly necessary. One of the popular ways of treating ED is with PDE5 inhibitors like Generic Viagra (blue pill), Levitra, Sildenafil Citrate and Cialis etc. So with many choices, how can one figure out which works the best –

  • Comparison with Cialis

All most all anti-erectile dysfunction tablets contain a very similar active ingredient. These pills essentially work in the same manner. The biggest difference in their treatment is that Cialis anti-ED drug is more potent and hence it is effective for 36 hours during which it can help you get an erection, given that there is enough sexual stimulation.

Generic or brand, Viagra remains effective for four to six hours and needs to be taken thirty minutes to one hour earlier before the intercourse. On the other hand, Cialis can be taken in the morning and can be effective throughout the morning to evening.

Cialis is also available as a daily treatment regimen, but these versions of Cialis contain low doses of the active ingredient, i.e. tadalafil. The daily tablets of Cialis are more suitable for men who have intercourse more than twice a week. There is no ‘daily’ version of Viagra.

Generic Viagra is available in 25, 50 and 100 mg dosages, while Cialis is available in 2.5,5,10 and 20 mg tablets. Cialis is much more double the price of the blue pill.

  • Comparison with Levitra

Both pills are very similar. While Generic Viagra contains Sildenafil;  Levitra contains vardenafil as key active ingredient both of which help increase the blood flow towards the genital area. Both of them are effective for four to six hours, and need to be taken an hour or half for them to be effective.

A recent study reported that men who have diabetes as well as suffered from erectile issues, witnessed improvement in their ability to get a hard on while using Generic Levitra. Although further study is required in this subject, Levitra was found to be more effective in diabetic patients.

It is mostly possible that both of the pills may work equally greatly. If you want to change your drug however, it is necessary to consult a doctor before hand.

  • Comparison with Sildenafil Citrate

Sildenafil is the key active ingredient of the blue pill. Therefore both of them are the same medicine. Since the brand version is a bit pricier, you can either choose Generic Viagra or Sildenafil Citrate to save some bucks. Whichever you prefer, you must have your medical history and health checked by a doctor to find which one is more suitable for you.


As all medication, anti-impotence pills too work differently with different individuals. Therefore, you need to consult a doctor and try different medication that may work the best for you. It should also be noted that if a particular drug doesn’t work well the first time, it is well worth to try the same pill with different dose and regimen.
