What is the Best Pill to Keep an Erection?

You have probably known or heard of Viagra, Cialis, and other "sex pills" because of their popularity. These pills are usually prescribed to men who are diagnosed with erectile dysfunction or ED, a sexual dysfunction wherein a man is unable to achieve or maintain an erection during sexual activity. These medications are quite effective and can be purchased with a prescription in any online Canadian Pharmacy or your local drugstore.

With all these different options for ED treatment, the question is, which one is the best and worth the cost? Keep reading and find out the pros and cons of each medication so that you and your doctor can devise the best solution for your ED problems.

What are ED pills?

Oral medications for ED are designed to help boost the blood flow going to the penis, which is essential for getting an erection. These oral meds for ED belong to the class of drugs called PDE5 or phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors. Here are the most popular examples of oral drugs for ED:

  1. Sildenafil

    Sildenafil was the first oral pill approved as a treatment for ED. The medication relaxes the blood vessels in the penis, increasing blood flow and producing an erection. The most popular brand of Sildenafil is Viagra, and the medication can take effect within 30 minutes or up to an hour after taking it. The effects of Sildenafil can last up to 8 hours, and this can be purchased with a prescription at any online Canadian Pharmacy or online Pharmacy for Viagra. A trusted online source certified in Canada is Kama Health.

    Viagra should be taken without food to get the best results, but if you need to eat, it is best to wait for at least an hour before eating before taking the medication. Go for healthy and light meals since fatty dishes can lengthen the time that the meds will take effect. Doctors usually recommend the starting dosage of 50mg, but they can also adjust it if you experience any adverse effects or if the pills are not working.
  2. Tadalafil

    Cialis is a known brand for Tadalafil, and this drug is known for its long-lasting effect, which can take up to 36 hours. Doctors can also prescribe Tadalafil at a lower dose for daily use. If you are looking for an ED medication for a sensual weekend, then Tadalafil is a better option compared to Sildenafil (Viagra). You can take Cialis with or without food and take it daily or as needed. Tadalafil starts taking effect within 30 minutes, but it would take up to 2 hours to experience the maximum effects. Doctors usually recommend a starting dose of 10 mg, but it can be adjusted depending on your response or any side effects. If you take Cialis daily, the recommended doses would be 2.5 or 5 mg.

    Make sure to present your prescription when you purchase from an online Canadian Pharmacy since the pharmacists must check your dosage.
  3. Vardenafil

    Vardenafil works the same way as Sildenafil by increasing blood flow to the genitals. The common brands for Vardenafil are Levitra, and the drug usually takes effect within an hour after ingestion.

    Vardenafil should be taken the same as you would Viagra and can be taken as needed. The medication can start working its magic as quickly as 15 minutes, but this depends on several factors. The starting dose for Vardenafil is 10 mg, but it can also be adjusted depending on your response to the medication.

All mentioned medications require a prescription which you can present to an online Canadian Pharmacy. It is important to note that these ED pills will not improve your sexual performance and will only be effective if there is sexual stimulation.

Which ED Medication is the Best?

Choosing the best ED medication, which you can purchase from an online Canadian Pharmacy, would vary depending on preferences, individual factors, and the patient's specific needs. Only a certified or qualified healthcare provider can determine the best ED treatment, so it is highly advisable to seek their assistance to get a proper diagnosis.

These medications, readily available in any online Canadian Pharmacy, are suitable for most people, and buying counterfeit Sildenafil (Viagra) is highly discouraged. Always follow your doctor's orders and take the prescribed medication as directed.

Are ED Alternative Medications Safe to Take?

Alternative medicines, including OTC drugs and supplements, should only be taken if they have an NPN (natural product number) on the bottle meaning they are approved by Health Canada.

Here are the top reasons why you should only buy approved ED medications:

  1. Avoid possible interactions with other medications. Alternative meds may interact with prescription meds like Sildenafil (Viagra), leading to adverse side effects or reduced efficacy. It is best to inform your doctor if you are currently taking any supplements so they can check which ED medication would work best for your condition.
  2. There may be a lack of regulation in alternative medicines, meaning they may not be safe to take.
  3. Taking alternative medications may cause more harm than good because some of these drugs have undisclosed ingredients that can interact with other medications or affect your existing health condition.

Final Notes

In conclusion, always consult your doctor to help you manage and treat ED. They will perform the necessary tests to diagnose your condition and then prescribe the best medication based on your physical assessment, medical history, and other important factors. The doctor will then give you the prescription for the medication and make sure to only purchase them at legitimate drug stores or online Canadian Pharmacies.
