Cialis Vs Viagra: A Short Comparison

Both Cialis and Viagra work to relax the muscle that can block blood flow to the penis. Without this blood flow there is no erection. So if this muscle is not regulated, you get no ejection.

» Dosage
Cialis comes in smaller doses of 5mg, 10mg and 20mg whereas Viagra is available in the strengths of 25mg, 50mg, 100mg.

» Works Faster
Cialis also works much faster than Viagra- in about 15 minutes instead of half an hour taken by Viagra to work.

» No food and Alcohol constraints
Cialis can be taken without food and alcohol constraints. You can eat whatever you want to while taking Cialis because food does not inhibit the effectiveness of the drug. With Viagra you’re required to limit your consumption of fatty foods because it slows down the onset time.

» Side Effects
Test results have also shown that Cialis has no adverse side effects on vision or the heart. It’s believed that Cialis is more selective than Viagra at targeting PDE5 receptor sites. Besides controlling blood flow to the penis, PDE5 enzymes play in essential role in the action of cells in the brain, heart, kidney, and eyes.

Blue discoloration of vision (overlap with PDE-6 in the retina) is seen only with Viagra (<0.5%) and muscle aches only with Cialis. Viagra can cause some visual problems, including, an increased sensitivity to light, blurred vision, or an inability to tell the difference between blue and green. Cialis comes without some of the side effects that have been associated with Viagra. However, many men on the drug complained about ‘facial flushing’, others said it didn’t work after a meal, while some complained that the drug turned their vision blue.

» Lasting power
Cialis has an effective time of up to 36 hours after taking one pill. This is much longer than the four hours of Viagra. So you get more sex out of Cialis.

» Cialis is a better treatment option for diabetics!
Cialis works better for patients with diabetes. In clinical studies the effectiveness of Cialis in patients with diabetes did not decline. However, with Viagra, the effectiveness of the drug dropped by almost 50 percent!
