Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, Staxyn; Which is Better?

By: Dr. Gary Bellman on December 26, 2012, 10:49 am

Men are fortunate today to have choices of pills to enhance sexual function, but which is better? It can be confusing….Viagra has been around the longest and is often thought to be more potent for some men. Some men swear by one pill and others swear by another.

I encourage men to try them all!

Viagra and Levitra have a shorter time of effect, up to 4 hours where Cialis can stay in one’s system for up to 36 hours.
Staxyn is a quicker absorbing form of Levitra.

Cialis is the only pill for erectile dysfunction that is also approved for an enlarged prostate. This is usually taken as a daily pill.

These pills are generally safe and effective and avoid purchasing them online as there are a lot of counterfeits. They also don’t work for all men and thats the time to check one’s testosterone levels.
