Which Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Suits You – Sildenafil, Avanafil, Vardenafil, and Tadalafil?

If you have clicked on this article, chances are you are trying to deal with erectile dysfunction. Either you’re a man who is starting to experience it or maybe a woman who’s trying to help out a partner. Either way, addressing ED and the medications that could treat it is relevant to most men nowadays. This article discusses each of the four most popular impotence or ED drugs: tadalafil, sildenafil, avanafil, and vardenafil. These four are often compared to each other, however, it is important to know that each of them may suit different types of people with different types of lifestyle.


Tadalafil, or Cialis, has been the talk of the town because of its longer efficacy compared to others. Drinking this medication at least 30 minutes before sexual intercourse may cause you 36 hours of erection. Keep in mind that this medication must be accompanied by stimulated sexual arousal. This means that without you feeling aroused, tadalafil won’t work.

Tadalafil also comes with the daily pill option. This is where you can be prescribed to take it on a daily basis. If you are looking forward to a more active sexual life, then this can be convenient for you. The regular dosage of tadalafil is 5 mg a day, however, for the daily dose, you must take 2.5 mg every day. If you are going for the daily pill of tadalafil, you must strictly follow the rule of drinking only one tablet in a span of 24 hours. 

You can buy tadalafil tablets in the UK from various online stores and actual pharmacies. Remember that tadalafil, just like any other ED medication, is a prescription drug, so consultation with your doctor is a must. This is to avoid side effects and severe complications when taking tadalafil.


Viagra, which is the brand name of sildenafil, is probably the most heard brand of ED medication. Unlike tadalafil, this drug’s effects can only last up to two to three hours. Sildenafil also requires arousal for it to fully have an effect on your penis and must be taken at least an hour before sex. Aside from an oral tablet, sildenafil also comes as a liquid suspension that you can drink or a medication that is injected by a medical professional.

Sildenafil tablets vary in dosages: 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg. The regular recommended amount is 50 mg per tablet per day but can be up to 100 mg depending on the doctor prescription. Strictly following the prescription is important as sildenafil can also cause side effects to other people.


What makes avanafil different from all of these medications for ED is that it can be taken 15 minutes before intercourse which means it requires less time to take effect. If you want longer efficacy, then avanafil could be your choice as it can last up to 6 hours. Its dosage depends on the person’s tolerance with this medication. Minimum dosage is 50mg but can also be increased up to 200mg. Avanafil also requires sexual stimulations just like the first two.


Lastly is vardenafil or Levitra (brand name). Vardenafil can be taken as a drug that can be easily dissolved on your tongue without taking any water to push it down. Its effects can last up to 4 hours and, as always, must be accompanied by arousal. 10mg is the recommended dose, however, your doctor can prescribe down to 5mg or up to 20mg depending on your body’s response to the medication. Always exercise caution and never take ED pills without the prescription of your medical provider.
