What are the various impotence treatments?
Often referred to by clinicians as erectile dysfunction, impotence is a man's inability to achieve and maintain a viable erection. While this condition can afflict anyone at any time, it is more common amongst the over-40s. However, males of any age can develop the problem, and it can have devastating effects on a sufferer's self-esteem, as well as their relationship with their partner.
Some men will suffer from impotence as a result of underlying mental conditions such as depression, anxiety and relationship problems. In most cases, these men will either require some form of counselling or the resolution of their mental affliction in order to overcome impotence. However, those suffering from erectile dysfunction due to physiological ailments could benefit from a medicinal impotence treatment such as Viagra and generic Viagra, Cialis and generic Cialis, Levitra and generic Levitra or Kamagra. In order to fully understand how these drugs work, it is necessary to understand the underlying reasons for male impotence.

What are the physical causes of male impotence?
The main physiological cause of impotence is the narrowing of the arteries that supply the penis with blood. As blood is required to achieve an erection, there needs to be a steady flow to the pelvic area, and the narrowing of arteries that is part of the ageing process can impede that flow. However, it is not only the ageing process that can have this effect. Impotence can develop as a result of several underlying conditions, including hormonal problems, cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure. It is believed that around two thirds of impotence sufferers will respond to an impotence treatment, but there are some important factors to consider before a sufferer should begin a course of medication.
How does an impotence treatment work
Although there are several names for impotence drugs, all the main varieties - including Viagra, Cialis, Kamagra and Levitra - work in much the same way.
The body naturally produces a substance called nitric oxide, which works to widen arteries to promote the free flow of blood to the pelvic area - and ultimately the penis. When a man becomes aroused, more of this chemical is produced, which allows blood to flow to the penis more freely - resulting in a viable erection.
However, in order to regulate this process, the body also produces an enzyme to counteract the effects of nitric oxide. The phosphodiesterase type 5 enzyme (PDE5) is secreted in order to suppress nitric oxide production, which will allow an erection to subside after intercourse. The key to a successful impotence treatment involves temporarily stopping the PDE5 enzyme from being produced by introducing an inhibitor. The main ingredient of all the major impotence treatments is such an inhibitor, so while they all have some subtle differences, they are all carrying out the same primary function.
Getting the dosage right
It is important to get expert medical advice before starting any impotence treatment, as people will react in different ways to the main drugs available. Factors such as age, size and the underlying causes of the individual's impotence will determine the required dosage. Cialis, for instance, is usually offered in 10mg and 20mg tablets. Young men will often be advised to take the 10mg dose; however, older men with narrowed arteries may need to take the higher dose to achieve the same benefits. Levitra works in much the same way as Cialis, and it is also available in 10mg and 20mg doses.
Viagra is a brand name of the manufacturer Pfizer, and contains a drug called sildenafil. It operates in a slightly different way to Levitra and Cialis, and the dosage options are 50mg and 100mg tablets. While many older men are advised to take the higher dose, the differences between the two are far less noticeable than they are with Levitra and Cialis. Taking the higher dose of Viagra may also increase the chances of the user suffering from side effects, so starting with the lower dose first is probably prudent.
What are the benefits and effects of the main impotence treatments?
Because all of the main erectile dysfunction treatment work in a similar way, the benefits gained from Levitra, Viagra, Cialis and Kamagra are all much the same - with a few subtle differences.
Levitra, for instance, will generally deliver longer lasting effects than Viagra, but both drugs will start to deliver benefits in around 30 minutes. Viagra should deliver benefits for four hours, but Levitra can remain active in the body for up to five hours.
For men who want faster results - perhaps for more spontaneous love-making - Cialis could be the best option. Whereas other forms of impotence treatment will take around 30 minutes to become active, Cialis will usually start to deliver benefits in 15 minutes. There is another version of Cialis available which will deliver the same benefits for up to 36 hours. Regardless of which type of impotence treatment is taken, it is important that the user only takes one dose every 24 hours.
Despite these subtle differences, all the major impotence drugs contain PDE5 inhibitors, so they all work to create the best physiological circumstances for an erection. This involves widening the arteries to allow blood to flow more freely to the pelvic area. However, this will not happen if the user is not in a state of arousal. It is important to remember that, while impotence treatments can deliver benefits to men with physical barriers to an erection, they will not bring about arousal itself.
What are the possible side effects of the main impotence treatments
After an unprecedented range of clinical trials throughout the world, Viagra and the other main impotence treatments have been declared safe for use by the majority of people. However, as is the case with all medications, some people will suffer from side effects. There are also a range of pre-existing conditions, and the taking of other drugs, that preclude some people from the use of impotence treatments.
Anyone suffering from cardiovascular conditions such as problems with blood pressure, angina, abnormal heart rhythms and a history of heart attack should not take any of the impotence drugs currently on the market unless they have consulted a doctor in advance. Other people who should avoid the main impotence treatments include those with kidney or liver problems, people with diabetes and people with eye problems. A full list of these conditions will usually be included with the drug's literature, or a doctor will be able to discuss the precluded conditions with the user.
There are some medications that cannot be taken alongside the main impotence drugs, and they include nitroglycerin for heart conditions, alpha blockers, antibiotics, anti-seizure drugs and blood thinners. Again, users can check the literature that comes with the drug or consult a doctor for the information.
A small percentage of men will experience an adverse reaction when taking Viagra, Levitra or Cialis, and they should seek medical attention if any of the following symptoms are experienced whilst taking them.
- Hearing loss
- Loss of vision
- Numbness of the limbs
- Pain in the chest, legs or arms
There are, however, some less serious side effects involved with taking these medications, and they include headache, flushing, temporary changes in vision and muscle aches; most of these symptoms are relatively gentle, however.
Erectile dysfunction is surprisingly common, yet many men are ashamed or simply too embarrassed to ask for help. However, in the vast majority of cases, impotence occurs because of underlying causes that are completely out of the sufferer's control, so there really is nothing to be ashamed of. Drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra have the potential to give men back their self-esteem, and in some cases, save relationships from failure.
