Yes, we have all heard about erectile dysfunction drugs. We all know about Viagra, how you pop one of the blue magic pills and then you can go for hours. There is no lie to this – ED drugs really do give you good and durable erections and they are mostly harmless, with mild and infrequently serious side effects. However, most people’s knowledge begins and ends with Viagra, the most intensely advertised ED drug of all. While Viagra is still the most popular (and first) ED medication, that doesn’t mean it’s the best or the most effective.

In this brief article, we will tell you more about Cialis, a drug superior to Viagra in every way. It might still not be as popular as the blue pill, but with all the advantages it offers, it’s just a matter of time before it eclipses Viagra. So, what are we talking about?

Cialis, or Tadalafil, which is its generic name, is the most powerful erectile dysfunction medication on the market. Like other ED drugs, it works as a PDE5 inhibitor, meaning it inhibits the enzyme responsible for shrinking the blood vessels. This, as a result, allows for steady and abundant blood flow, which means you can achieve great and lasting erections. Still, it is pertinent to stress that you will need some sort of stimulation in order to achieve an erection. Of course, this is perfectly normal, as it would be ridiculous to get an erection simply from taking the drug. That would be inconvenient, wouldn’t it?

Furthermore, Tadalafil has also been approved to treat pulmonary hypertension, making it a versatile drug, adjustable for various groups. The drug itself was launched on the market in late 2003, almost five years after Viagra was first released. This is why it is superior to it in many ways.

While Cialis isn’t likely to cause many of the side effects Viagra does, the main reason why it is so much better is its half-life. The thing is, Cialis’s half-life is about 18 hours, which is over four times longer than Viagra’s half-life. You are most likely wondering what that means, so we will now explain it. Half-life marks the period during which the drug is potent in your body and this means Cialis is a lot stronger than Viagra. See, once you take Viagra, you are bound to have good sex for a few hours, but that’s it. Also, it has to be premeditated, since you can only take one pill a day. With Cialis, that isn’t necessary, as the drug is effective for an entire day, or even longer, after you take it, enabling spontaneous intercourse, which is a lot better.

Cialis also has no side effect in the form of a headache, although other side effects resemble those of Viagra, including, but not limited to, nausea, tachycardia, blurry vision, etc. If you experience any of these, go see your doctor and adjust your treatment as soon as you can.
