The Concept of Erectile Dysfunction Medication

Erectile dysfunction is a problem that is never easy for men to talk about and seek medical attention for it but in the recent years the problem is growing so much in number that not only older men are a victim of it but even younger men are falling a victim of this problem. The medical disorder called impotence or erectile dysfunction is when a person finds it difficult to get an erection or to maintain it for long enough to have sexual intercourse. But the good thing about this medical disorder is that it is almost always curable and rarely does it go to such an extreme extent that it would require surgery or implants. Therefore it is strongly advised to seek medical attention as soon as any early signs of impotence are spotted.

The safest way to deal with erectile dysfunction is to first seek help through natural ways by modifying one’s lifestyle and eating healthy. You should quit smoking and take only a limited amount of alcohol. Along with that you should try engaging more in exercise so that you have a fitter body and healthier lifestyle. Once your problem gets more extensive that it cannot be cured from lifestyle changes alone you should consider medication for it. Since this problem of erectile dysfunction has become so widespread the market is now flooded with different kinds of medications for it. Out of all the medicines available the most commonly used ones are Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra. Any person who experiences problems having an erection tries out either one of these pills first. They are the most reliable medications known to fix almost every one. They also have very few side effects.

The main theory through which these Cialis, Viagra, and Levitra work is that they increase the production of nitric oxide which is a chemical substance that the human body produces. Nitric oxide works by relaxing the body’s blood vessels so that more blood flows easily to the penis which helps in getting an erection. The differences between these three pills are only slightly because of their main ingredients present in them. The way they are to be taken and the number of hours for which their effects lasts differs too. The chemical makeup of each pill is what is important and has to be kept into consideration so that you don’t end up with severe side effects in case you are suffering from other health problems or diseases.

If you decide on taking Viagra you should know that you cannot take it more than once in a day and when you take it you should avoid eating anything for at least two hours. Apart from that you need to take it at least 60 minutes before any planned sexual activity because Viagra takes that long to react and its effects lasts for around 4 hours or in some cases an hour or two longer. In contrast if you take Levitra you can take it even 30 minutes before sexual activity but like Viagra it lasts for only 4 hours and has to be taken without food and not more than once a day. The third pill Cialis is the strongest and its effects lasts for up to 36 hours making it the most effective one. You have to take it only 30 minutes before you plan on having sexual intercourse and you can even take it with food. However the Cialis pill too should not be taken more than once.

Though these are the safest pills in the market they do have some mild side effects. These include runny noses, indigestion, flushing, headache, back pain, muscle pain, and in some extreme cases temporary vision changes. Apart from that you don’t have much to worry about.
