Oral Erectile Dysfunction Treatments
Viagra (sildenafil) relaxes muscles found in the walls of blood vessels and increases blood flow to particular areas of the body. It works for men with erectile dysfunction (ED) by increasing blood flow to the penis so you can get and keep an erection hard enough for sex.

Viagra can decrease blood flow to the optic nerve of the eye, causing sudden vision loss. Viagra has also been associated with a variety of adverse effects including headache, flushing, dyspepsia, and adverse interaction with nitrates and inhibitors of cytochrome P450 enzymes.
Cialis (tadalafil) works similar to Viagra in that it also relaxes muscles found in the walls of blood vessels and increases blood flow to particular areas of the body. The main difference between Cialis and Viagra, is that Cialis will work all day. You can take it once in the morning, and thats it. Viagra should be taken 30 minutes prior to sex.
Tadalafil is also used to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia-BPH). It helps to relieve symptoms of BPH such as difficulty in beginning the flow of urine, weak stream, and the need to urinate frequently or urgently (including during the middle of the night). Tadalafil is thought to work by relaxing the smooth muscle in the prostate and bladder.
Cialis is available is available as an oral tablet ranging from 5 to 20 mg and is offered as a once daily pill.
Tadalafil also may cause sudden vision loss, similar to sildenafil. However; for both medications, most of these people also had certain pre-existing eye problems or risk factors for blood vessel disorders (such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, smoking, or being over 50 years old).
