As the first of its kind, Viagra is the treatment that has the most brand recognition. Many people have heard of Viagra and are willingly to try it ahead of newer treatments, such as Levitra.Viagra does have a strong track record, however it is reported to have the most side-effects and also it's time-frame of 2-4 hours means that, for some people, sex can seem rushed and lack spontaneity.
Customer feedback suggests that Levitra ticks most of the boxes. Its effect lasts for 4-8 hours and it has the least reported side-effects.
Whichever of the impotence treatments you eventually choose, the important thing to remember is that if one doesn't work for you, another might. It is also important to remember that it can take time to get used to the sensation of having an erection again and the treatments may take more than one try before you are successful.
Also bear in mind that you don't have to make a definitive choice between one or the other. You can choose both Viagra and Levitra and alternate between them depending on your requirements.
The major difference is in the time the treatments are effective for. With Cialis, the effects last for a 36-hour period, whereas Levitra is effective for anything between 4-8 hours. Both treatments give a large window of effectiveness, leading to a more spontaneous experience. While Cialis does have a larger time frame, many people are uncomfortable having the active ingredient in their system for such an extended period of time. Levitra's window of effectiveness is long enough for a spontaneous experience but won't be in your system the next day. Another important factor to bear in mind when considering Levitra's V's Cialis is the mild side effects attributed to Levitra.
Both these male impotence drugs have restrictions. They should not be used by men with a high risk of heart attack or stroke, or by men taking certain medications, including those for angina, or nitrates, or men who suffer from genetic eye disorders or curvature of the penis.
