About Viagra:

Viagra is a brand-name prescription drug that’s approved to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). With ED, you’re unable to have or maintain an erection. Viagra is approved for this use in males ages 18 years and older. Viagra contains the drug sildenafil. It belongs to a class of drugs called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. (A class of drugs is a group of medications that act in a similar way.) Viagra works by increasing blood flow to your penis, which helps you have and keep an erection. But this drug only works if you’re sexually aroused. Viagra comes as tablets that are taken by mouth. In most cases, it should be taken about an hour before sexual activity, but it can be taken 30 minutes to 4 hours beforehand. Viagra is available in three strengths: 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg.

In several clinical studies, Viagra was effective in treating ED. In these studies, men who used the drug had an improved ability to have and keep erections that allowed for successful sex. Across the studies, between 43% and 83% of men who took Viagra had improved erections. (These rates varied depending on the cause of their ED and the dosage of Viagra being used.) In comparison, improved erections occurred in 10% to 24% of men who took a placebo (no active drug).

Side Effects of Viagra:

Viagra can cause mild or serious side effects. The following lists contain some of the key side effects that may occur while taking Viagra. These lists don’t include all possible side effects. For more information on the possible side effects of Viagra, talk with your doctor or the medical providers at LKN Weight Loss & Wellness.

Mild side effects of Viagra:

Mild side effects of Viagra can include:

  • headache
  • flushing
  • indigestion
  • blurred vision, and sensitivity to light
  • nasal congestion
  • back pain
  • muscle pain
  • nausea
  • dizziness
  • rash

Serious side effects of Viagra:

Serious side effects from Viagra aren’t common, but they can occur. Call 911 if your symptoms feel life threatening or if you think you’re having a medical emergency.

Serious side effects and their symptoms can include:

  • Non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), which is an eye condition that causes damage to your optic nerve. Symptoms can include:
    • sudden decrease in vision in one or both of your eyes
    • sudden loss of vision in one or both of your eyes
  • Sudden decrease or loss of hearing. This condition may also involve other symptoms, such as:
    • tinnitus (ringing or buzzing in your ears)
    • dizziness

About Cialis:

Cialis is a prescription medicine used to treat the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. Cialis may be used alone or with other medications. Cialis belongs to a class of drugs called Phosphodiesterase-5 Enzyme Inhibitors. When taken under a medically supervised program, Cialis relaxes the smooth muscles and arteries inside the penis. At the same time, it also increases blood flow to the penis. When aroused, this combination of relaxation and increased blood flow allows the penis to fill with blood, which results in an erection. It’s important to remember that Cialis only works if you are sexually aroused.

How Quickly Does Cialis Work?

First, Cialis works relatively quickly but not as fast as Viagra. It can take 1 – 2 hours for the full effects of Cialis to kick in, though it only takes about an hour for Viagra to work fully. On the other hand, the effects of Cialis last noticeably longer than the effects of Viagra, normally up to 36 hours. That’s a full 1.5 days! Don’t be alarmed, though; that doesn’t mean you’ll have an erection for 1.5 days straight. That would be an emergency, which we’ll talk about soon. But you may be able to achieve an erection with the help of Cialis throughout the 36-hour time period. This is one of the reasons some men prefer Cialis; it allows for more spontaneous sexual activity. If your erection lasts longer than 4 hours, even if it’s not painful, consider it a medical emergency. Known as priapism, this condition can cause permanent damage to the tissue that allows you to become erect. People with sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, leukemia, and some penile deformities are more likely to have a prolonged erection.

Side Effects of Cialis:

Aside from a prolonged erection, which is an emergency, possible side effects of Cialis include: 

  • flushing
  • headache 
  • nasal congestion
  • heartburn
  • back pain / muscle pain

You might wonder how long you can safely use Cialis. Right now, there isn’t a maximum period of time for safely taking the medication. But as the years pass, you may begin taking other drugs, such as blood pressure or antifungal medications that could be dangerous if combined with Cialis, Viagra, and similar ED drugs. Always be sure the medical providers at LKN Weight Loss & Wellness know what other medications you are or plan to be taking.

Shannon and her team have been amazing to work with. I never feel like they are trying to “sell” me because their... programs speak for themselves. While losing my baby weight (40 lbs.) is a huge accomplishment, my biggest achievement was changing my eating lifestyle. I feel like I eat to live instead of the other way around and for that, I can’t thank the LKN team enough!read more
