What is the difference between Sildenafil and Tadalafil?
Sildenafil and Tadalafil, both belong to class of medications called ‘phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors’ and work in a very similar way. They both work in the presence of sexual stimulation. Upon stimulation, Nitric Oxide (NO) is released, relaxing the smooth muscle inside the penis, increasing the blood flow into the vasculature of the penis allowing it to become erect. They both work by maintaining the physiological levels of Nitric Oxide, leading to sustained erection during intercourse.
Sildenafil is short acting, as compared to Tadalafil. It works within an hour of taking the medication and for its full effect, should be taken on an empty stomach. The effects of Sildenafil generally last for 4 to 5 hours. The more common side effects of Sildenafil may include headache, nausea, stuffy nose, flushing and indigestion.
Sildenafil is taken on a need basis, usually at a dose of 50mg. These may be increased to 100mg if the standard dose is ineffective, or lowered to 25mg if mild side-effects are experienced. The dosing may be different depending on your medical history, so your doctor will prescribe an appropriate starting dose based on the need.
