Viagra vs. Cialis
Both Viagra and Cialis only work when a man is aroused, and both are contraindicated with nitrates and some other medications. They have similar side effects, such as a headache, flushing, and indigestion.
Viagra is that brand name for sildenafil and Cialis is the brand name for tadalafil. Cialis can be taken with or without food, while Viagra’s effects can be lessened if taken with a high-fat food and therefore it’s best taken on an empty stomach.
Cialis typically “kicks in” between 16 and 45 minutes, while Viagra works in about 30 minutes. Cialis works for about 36 hours, while Viagra works for four to five hours.
Cialis can be taken as needed or on a daily basis at a lower dosage. Viagra is taken on an as-needed basis, about one hour before you plan to have sex, although it can be taken anywhere from 30 minutes to four hours before intercourse.
