Cialis: Backdoor To the Exuberance of Youth
Summary : Sex has been and will remain an integral part of our life since the day Adam had the apple. Man has been striving since long to achieve a better performance in order to satiate both his as well his partner's urge to sex. Albeit, there have been a lot of factors that have been instrumental in being a barrier to the Sex like age, hormonal imbalances, society, money and many other things, but none of those have been powerful enough to sustain the Sex flow. Medicinal herbs, therapeutic fruits, meditation, yoga have helped him in one way or the other but there has always been a search for that extra PUNCH to help men in his erectile dysfunction in nearly all cases with having minimum of the side effects. This search for the PUNCH has led to the discovery of Viagra.
Viagra hit the market in 1998 and was an instant success in that regard.
What exactly is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is the inability of the person to sustain a penile erection for a sufficient period of time that is needed to attain a sexual gratification/satiety. There are a good number of reasons that causes it like psychological factors, hormonal factors, arterial or muscular factors. The diseases associated with it are Diabetes Mellitus, Major Depression, etc.
What is Cialis?
Cialis works like Viagra, acting by inhibiting an enzyme called phosphodiesterase which releases Nitric Oxide from nerve endings and endothelium causing relaxation of smooth muscle and hence penile erection. This is a product developed by Eli Lilly and ICOS and it was launched under the trade name of the product called Tadalafil launched in the market in 2003.
How is cialis better than Viagra?
Cialis has a life of around 36 hours in comparison to that of Viagra, which is around 4 hours that means that a person can take the drug and can expect to have erection at a time much later than the time of administration. This achieves much patient conformity.
Who all can benefit?
Men with ED due to some arterial disorders will benefit the most. There is a wide spread myth that a person as soon as taking the drug will have erection but that is not the case. It starts taking action only when a person starts physical activity. Men with prostate cancer who have their prostate removed are usually free of cancer, but the procedure often comes with a cost -- impotence. A new study, however, shows that Viagra (sildenafil), the popular medication for erectile dysfunction, can restore impotency lost in surgery. Whether men respond, however, depends on how much nerve damage occurred during surgery.
What are the side effects?
Due to the extreme non-specificity of the product there are certain side effects related to vasodilatation at other sites such as headache, nasal congestion, stuffiness, and fall in blood pressure. Some patients complain of loose motions. These side effects are more applicable to products such as Viagra than to Cialis. Some patients have suffered heart attack and severe fall in blood pressure.
Final Points to ponder:
•Viagra is an effective treatment for impotency in men who have their prostate removed.
•For men whose nerves have been spared, the drug improves the ability to have an erection by nearly 60%, but the effectiveness drops to 20% in those with no nerves spared.
•There are other options for men who don't respond to cialis, including injections and vacuum devices.
