Cialis and Viagra with or without meal

If you are suffering from erectile dysfunction with high probability you’ll be recommended to take one of the remedies existing at the market and the most popular and efficient ones are Viagra and Cialis. The first blue pills are proved with time and practice and the second pills have the longest duration and shortest time of action with the same level of safety. The significant difference between them is in a formula. The main ingredient of Viagra is Sildenafil while the key component of Cialis is Tadalafil. It is clear that these two components determine different requirements as to administration, which we are going to discuss in this article focusing our attention on meal. First of all we would like inform you: it is reported that effectiveness of Viagra is slightly higher (84%) than effectiveness of Cialis (81%). But majority of men choose Cialis due to its longer duration of effect and additional bonuses.

Can we have any kind of meal for example cakes or pastries before or after intake of ED drugs? Or should we avoid some products? Or are there the prohibited fruits or beverages which can prevent from the maximum effect from the treatment? Now we’ll try to answer all the above questions.

What About Cialis?

As we mentioned before, Cialis australia is really efficient, though it has some contra indications like any other medication but less than other ED drugs have. Perhaps you know that only Cialis is marketed in the form of daily tabs, which allow having sexual intercourse at any moment. The other form is a usual pill taken 45 minutes before the intercourse and in this case the effect lasts during next 36 hours. Do you understand now its distinct advantage? Cialis provides a man with a steady and continuous erection whenever he needs it thanks to a formula developed almost 15 years ago. As you see the time period is long enough to be sure of its safety. But in order not to reduce the effect a patient is expected to follow some rules. A pill is administered with a glass of water and regardless of meal including different pastries. Though, grapefruit may spoil the things a little bit. The point is that this citrus fruit interferes with an enzyme which in its turn just breaks down the active ingredient of the medication. When there is no enzyme in the organism, Cialis works longer staying in the body for a longer period and that is a threat for health because it causes a toxic reaction.

What About Viagra?

Viagra 100mg is taken on an as needed basis just before the sexual intercourse and usually works during half an hour. It can be administered with meal or without meal but the effect may be reduced by high-fat food eaten near the administration. Or rather not the effect is reduces but the fat chicken or bacon can delay the action. Among fat products are also French fries, cakes with fatty cream, pastries with a lot of fatty products in the recipe, cheeseburger, fat cheese, fat fish like salmon or sardine. That is why you’d better take Viagra on an empty stomach. Besides grapefruit and products with it or made of it are also not recommended or even we’d say forbidden. If you take them together with pills, it will delay the effect just like fat meal, reduce the result and may lead to toxic side effects – the rare reaction, but sometimes it does occur.

ED Drugs And Alcohol

In both cases drinking alcohol with the ED tabs can cause light or even severe side effects. It means that a patient should avoid drinking large amounts of alcohol while taking ED drugs. The point is that the ED medication acts widening blood vessels and in this way it decreases blood pressure. Most alcohol drinks act in the same way causing low blood pressure. Together with Viagra or Cialis they can lead to an elevated heart rate. A man can feel dizziness, headache and even go off into a faint. Though, the alcohol in a low dose will make no harm. Here we speak about 5-6 shots of spirits taken during a quarter of hour. But even with much smaller quantity watch when you get up from a lying or sitting position, making it slowly and carefully.

What Else Should Be Taken Into Attention?

In general Viagra and Cialis do not have negative interactions with most drinks and meal. You can eat cakes and pastries but not too fatty. But if we are speaking about various medications and supplements, a patient should consult with a doctor before combining them with ED drugs. You probably know that any type of nitrate drugs cannot be interacted with ED treatment.

And once again all the above restrictions do not serve as guidelines. They are strict, though, the result can be different as far as people have different organisms and immune systems. That is why the risk depends on the amount of forbidden product and peculiarities of its consumption. And remember that for example as to grapefruit juice, it leaves the system in about 72 hours – and that is 2 days. So, when your physician says that he is against this product while taking Cialis, you should know those terms. And do not
