Sildenafil

Sildenafil tablets (generic Viagra) was the first erectile PDE5 inhibitor medicine brought to market. It is available in 25mg, 50mg and 100mg. It is usually taken 30 to 60 minutes before intended sexual activity and lasts in the body for up to 4 hours. It is commonly referred to as the “blue pill” but comes in various different colours depending on the manufacturer. Please note that the brands you may receive may be different from the illustration shown.

Tadalafil

Tadalafil tablets (generic Cialis) are available in 10mg and 20mg for use on-demand. It is usually taken 30 to 60 minutes before intended sexual activity and lasts in the body for up to 36 hours. It is commonly referred to as the “weekend pill” since it has a much longer duration of action compared to other erectile dysfunction medications. This does not mean you will have an erection for up to 36 hours but that you will be ready for sex without another dose for up to 36 hours. There is also a daily 2.5mg and 5mg tablet which is designed for those who always want to be ready for sex.

Vardenafil

In combination with sexual stimulation, Vardenafil increases blood flow to the penis in the same way as Sildenafil and Tadalafil. The effects of Vardenafil can last for up to 5 hours and can begin to take effect within 15-30 minutes. With Vardenafil most men will notice a fuller, firmer and longer lasting erection.
