Differences Between Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra:
These three ED treatment drugs have one main thing in common: they all use PDE5 inhibitors that successfully disable the PDE5 enzyme in the penis, allowing the blood to fill the main shaft of the penis more easily upon mental or physical sexual stimulation. Viagra is the most popular of these drugs and is considered by many to be the strongest as well.
Levitra has been known to last 5-6 hours (compared to Viagra’s 3-4 hours) in the system and has proven effective in treating males suffering from ED when other treatments failed. Cialis is known to be the longest lasting of all the PDE5 inhibitors on the market, staying in the system as long as 28-36 hours.
