Erectile Dysfunction

We offer three medications: Sildenafil (Viagra), Vardenafil (Levitra) and Tadalafil (Cialis).  They are all similar medications that will help you obtain and sustain an erection by increasing blood flow to the penis.  They all have similarly high rates of successful intercourse and have similar side-effect profiles.  Therefore, the American College of Physicians (ACP) recommends you choose a drug based on personal preferences including cost, ease of use, desired duration, and adverse effects.

Tadalifil (Cialis) can be taken as a low dose once daily medication which can eliminate the concern for onset of action and duration.  Tadalafil does not need to be taken on an empty stomach.  Tadalifil (Cialis) may be effective for up to 36 hours.

Sildenafil (Viagra) and Vardenafil (Levitra) have a sexual window of 4-5 hours although some men may experience effects for 8-12 hours, especially those with mild to moderate ED. Sildenafil (Viagra) and Vardenafil (Levitra) must be taken on an empty stomach.  High fat meals and alcohol delay absorption affecting onset of action.

If you are interested in ED medication, please start the medical questionnaire.  A health care professional will review your medical information to determine safety of treatment.  A prescription will be sent to your pharmacy of choice if appropriate.  More information will be provided for you at the end of the questionnaire or feel free to call, chat, or email us with questions.
