    Which one do you guys like more? those that have tried both. I have to go viagra bc the erections are insane. Full potential. Cialis has the mellow long lasting effect, but my erections aren't as big.

    Erection quality wise has been equal. V kicks in about 20 minutes after I take it and lasts about 3 hours. Downside is that it gives me a headache and makes me see blue.

    C lasts 3 days but takes about 8 hours to kick in. I found if I take a full dose my lower back hurts, but if I half it, it doesn't happen.

    Cialis is much better for me.

    3 days seems like too long? Thats interesting though. Maybe I should try a higher dosage of cialis. I use 10mg of cialis. but when ive used viagra its been either 50mg or 100

    If you want Cialis to kick in faster, like within half-an-hour or even less, dissolve the tablet under your tongue. The erections are insane.

    Cialis for me. Lasts 3 days and no side effects. Viagra lasts 12 hours and one helleva headache for 24 hours. Almost the same price.

    Not necessarily. Different people have different reactions. Plus, they're different drugs so dosage recommendations are different as well.

    I prefer cialis, having used both. I have some generic cialis I obtain thru the net, and it comes from overseas. I generally take 10mg on wed or thursday, take another 10 mg on friday, 10 mg on sunday. it takes a little longer to take effect than viagra but lasts for days. if I want a quicker erect time, I'll take 20 mg on an empty stomach, break the pill up, drink a glass of water and in about 30 minutes my cock will twitch, and within a few minutes, a raging hard on. I commented on this on another thread here. it was a morning when my wife felt like fucking(pretty rare, 50 ish). I took the pill, got back in bed and we cuddled. as I felt my pubic area "warm". I pulled the covers back, exposing my chub. it kind of jumped or twitched and then started getting larger and harder. after a few minutes it was hard as a rock, standing off my belly. "amazing" she said, as she went down on me for awhile and then mounted me. she likes the top, she controls the rate of penetration.

    I also like the spontaneity of cialis. I "carry" myself in a much larger flaccid state that makes for an interesting bulge for anyone who is looking. ran into an old gf awhile back, we chit chatted and then she leaned in close, glanced down and back to my eyes, and said, "I see you haven't lost a thing.", and winked. the only thing re: cialis is you cannot drink much alcohol, and expect it to work.

    I have minimal side effects, some back ache, but not bad. there have been times when I have take 20 mg on back to back days, then the back ache is worse, and I get a stuffy nose briefly, but I can achieve quite a few erecitons.

    I tried Viagra 2 or 3 times. Never got an erection from it, or anything close. Did get a splitting headache and things looked bluish for about 12 hours. I chucked the rest of the bottle. I can't imagine Cialis is much better, but who knows?

    Have used both, prefer Cialis. By the way, anybody also read that erection enhancement drugs only work on 80% of men ? Know a fellow who has no use for Viagra, did not work for him.

    hugs,

    Yes, this is true. Just heard it discussed on Doctor Radio on Sirius/XM. These drugs do not work for all guys, and since they all work in the same manner, if one doesn't work, the others won't either.

    They also pointed out that some of the time, though, guys have problems because they don't take this medication correctly. It is meant to be taken on an empty stomach, and taking it with food can delay, reduce, or outright kill the effectiveness of the drug, especially if taken close to the time that you eat a meal with a lot of fat. Alcohol can reduce or kill the effectiveness as well.

    Viagra gives me the hardest erection, hands down. Cialis didn't do anything for me. Levitra worked about the same as Viagra for me. Now I've been buying generic Viagra from alldaychemist.com. . .it costs about 58 cents a pill, plus shipping. Same as the real thing.

    Whoa, 10mg of Cialis is equal to 50mg Viagra. It's not a direct comparison.

    I prefer C. I haven't used X is over 15 yrs and the blue tinge disorients me. I love going on a low dose Cialis diet on vacations. I get boners like a teenager!

    Im 24 years old, I haven't had successful penetration yet, so basically Im a virgin. Im in a 5 months relationship. I tried having sex with my girlfriend but, although Im horny as a hog before sex, when Im about to penetrate my mind goes off and penis shrinks gradually. Im aware this is mainly head problem. i was wondering if viagra or cialis would help to override that neurosis and maintain erection?

    Both Sildenafil Citrate (the chemical name for Viagra) and Vardenafil (the chemical name for Levitra operate in exactly the same way. If you do not respond Sildenafil the odds are good that you will not respond to Vardenafil. Tadalafil (Cialis) has a slightly different method of operation and it is this different method of operation physiologically that gives it the ability to be used in low dosage numbers AND the ability to have the long duration it has. Not reponding to Sildenafil or Vardenafil is no guarantee that Tadalafil will not work because of this change. Any MD who makes the statement that all three are exactly the same has not done his/her homework. In extreme cases there are MD's that have prescribed a low dosage of Cialis and a 1/2 dose of Viagra together when sex is desired. This is a used treatment when ED is more extreme.

    My ED is on the high end, and I find both drugs a mixed bag with a "hit and miss" effect.

    The one thing to remember however is to be careful of both Sildenafil Citrate and Vardenafil because the effect is multiplied exponentially if certain compounds containing grapefruit are present. Grapefruit extracts can multiply the effects of these two drugs as much as 20 times under the right circumstances.

    Cialis has by track record had fewer side effects, by record.

    Having dealt with both drugs over the years, I personally when needed will use both separately as a booster when I cannot use my injectable which is 1000% preferable. The problem is that I cannot travel with my injectable easily because it has to be refrigerated.

    In conclusion, the whole thing is individual anatomy and personal preferance. There are in fact other drugs which are actually more effective and commonly used outside the U.S. including both a transdermal alprostadil and a transurethral alprostadil which is again far more effective. The downside to alprostadil is that the erection can be so hard it is painful and you can't use it often because most men quickly build a tolerance or resistance to it. I operate a Yahoo group dealing with ED in men and it is a place that a few men go for the experiences of others and a place where one can learn from those who have more experience if they need that kind of information.

    I'm sure this will help with the anxiety. Anxiety is the worst, and sometimes you just need a little help

    Have taken all three, viagra, cialis, and levitra. I find livitra and cialis have the same residual affect the next day - a good hard on. Viagra doesn't do that for me. Of the 3, levitra seems to have the least negative side affects.
