About Cialis

There are many treatments for erectile dysfunction (ED) available on the market – how do you know which to choose, and if you should buy Cialis instead?

ED that stems from an overabundance of phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) might be correctable with the use of a PDE5 inhibitor such as Cialis. By disabling the production of PDE5, the body is then able produce a sufficient amount of cyclic GMP, which allows for sufficient blood flow to the corpus cavernosum along the length of the penis.

What makes Cialis different?

Cialis is a PDE5 inhibitor like other ED medications on the market, but unlike those other medications, it is offered as a daily option as well as an as-needed option. The daily option gives men the opportunity to be ready for sexual intercourse at any time.

The as-needed option also differs from competing medications on the market because it has a much longer half life after ingestion. Other ED drugs offer only a 4-5 hour window of opportunity for sexual intercourse, but Cialis effectiveness can extend to as many as 36 hours, giving it the moniker "The Weekend Pill".

Cialis is also the only drug that treats both ED and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or enlarged prostate. Patients with enlarged prostate typically have problems with urination, such as frequently needing to urinate or difficulty urinating. The PDE5 inhibiting properties also helps reduce the symptoms of BPH.

How do I know Cialis is right for me?

Because erectile dysfunction often stems from potentially serious medical conditions, it is important to discuss treatment options with your doctor before deciding to buy Cialis or another form of ED treatment. Conditions that may cause ED include:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • Obesity
  • Penile scarring
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Alcoholism
  • Drug addiction

Men suffering from the above conditions might want to seek treatment for the underlying cause of their erectile dysfunction in addition to taking a PDE5 inhibitor.

Choosing to buy Cialis could be a good option for men who want the security of knowing that they will be ready for sexual intercourse at any time, and that the quality of their erections will be sufficient. Cialis can offer needed confidence in the ability to achieve and maintain a satisfactory erection, thus providing a more pleasurable experience.

However, patients taking nitrates for high blood pressure should not use Cialis, or only use Cialis under the direct supervision of their physicians.

Cialis is not an aphrodisiac; it only permits sufficient blood flow to the penis in the event of sexual arousal. The patient must still become aroused in the traditional ways. Patients who find arousal difficult in itself should disclose that to their doctors in order to determine the most appropriate treatment options. Also, bear in mind that Cialis and other PDE5 inhibiting medications aren't cures for ED; they are simply ongoing treatments. Once a patient stops taking Cialis, the effectiveness of the drug treatment will cease.

Cialis and other PDE5 inhibitors also inhibit other PDE enzymes, which may result in light sensitivity, flushing and decreased blood pressure in rare cases.
