Which Treatment should I Buy?

Posted: Tuesday, 8 February, 2011 | Categories: erectile dysfunction

A frequent query regarding erectile dysfunction relates to the type of erectile dysfunction treatment that a first time user should opt for. Instead of purchasing high quality products, men often go for the first sexual enhancement treatment they lay their eyes on. For those who have sought the necessary medical advice, some simply do not know which ED treatment is for them.

Of the 3 main PDE5 inhibitors, the side effects do not vary greatly, if at all. Viagra, Cialis and Levitra are popular and FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved treatments for erectile dysfunction. PDE5 inhibitors aid blood flow into the penis to sustain an erection.

Viagra works within one hour of consumption and lasts up to four hours. Cialis takes a slightly shorter length of time to get working but the effects will last up to 36 hours. If however side effects are experienced, the half-life of Cialis indicates that such side effects can last 36 hours- as long as the treatment lasts. While trying different ED treatments, it is imperative that if taking Cialis before Viagra, one must wait 36 hours before trying Viagra.

Levitra takes effect between 30 minutes and an hour and lasts for approximately 5 hours.

These tablets should be avoided by those who have experienced any sort of cardiovascular incidences in the past unless given the all clear by their doctor. When it comes to choosing a treatment, it is often about trial and error to see which one works best for you.
