Expensive Erectile Dysfunction Medications: Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis

I cannot believe it took the human species, or a man, so long to find a chemical that would cause an erection. Sex is the basis to life. We need it to reproduce. When we found that sex could feel good, we needed to have it all the time. People just lived in frustration if their husband or lover could not "perform" anymore. Finally, in 2003, a new chemical that was going to be used for blood pressure that caused a significant side effect, an erection. The chemical was introduced to the market as sildenafil, or as we know it, Viagra! Viagra was marketed for erectile dysfunction. It took about 20 minutes to an hour to start working, and some patients would see a blue hue to know it was time to go at it. I think getting an erection would tell you it was time to go. The medication could last 4 hours. Quickly, we had three expensive erectile dysfunction medications, Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis, available. They range in price from $25 to 35 dollars per pill! Sometimes the copay is outrageous or not even covered by prescription insurance!

Pharmaceutical companies started to adjust certain parts of the chemical to make the side effect longer lasting, and then, Cialis was born. Cialis could start working in 15 to 20 minutes and last up to 36 hours! I sell mostly Viagra and Cialis. Viagra is supposed to be going generic very soon. There goes another multibillion dollar medication for Pfizer. Lipitor was their previous money maker that went generic in November 2011.

There are some new medications like Staxyn and Stendra. Staxyn is an orally disintegrating tablet of the popular drug Levitra. Stendra lasts up to 6 hours and starts to work in about 15 minutes.


  1. All Viagra, Cialis & Levitra got generic versions.
    Viagra - Sildenafil Citrate
    Cialis - Tadalafil
    Levitra - Vardenafil

  2. RE: GENERAL INFO ON Viagra, Levitra & Cialis. I have ordered these products online from Mumbai, India for about 2.50 USD. Once in awhile you get the genuine generic drug. I have gotten generic Cialis that was excellent. The last 2 times I ordered Cialis and they shipped inert "Viagra".
    I dont recommend these sources.
    Also, for your general info, some can't tolerate the flushing from the vasodialation of Viagra or Cialis. I'm told Levitra has less vasodialatio I've also found Cialis has a 1/2 life of 72 hours.
