Along Viagra, Cialis is one of the drugs that has become a victim of its own success in that the demand for it has been lessened by the horde of imitation and generic versions that have sprung up. It is a direct competitor to Viagra in that it was created to perform the same function without using the same active ingredients. The major advantage that Cialis has over Viagra is the amount of time for which it is active within the body. With Cialis the benefits last for 36 hours, which is a noticeable increase on the length of time for which Viagra is active in the system.
There has been a great increase lately in the use of the “Big Three” (Viagra, Levitra & Cialis) together in an anti-impotence cocktail. This is not something that is ordinarily recommended, but many internet sites that market the products often offer them together at a discounted rate. This is publicly so that people can enjoy the different benefits that each offers, but many people believe it’s actually just to increase the amount that is sold. Each of these drugs is known to cause side effects and using them together can possibly increase the risk of you experiencing adverse side effects.
There are legitimate uses for Cialis, but a large portion of the Cialis that is purchased is used for a purpose that it is intended for. A large number of people also use the drug in dosages that differ from the dosage that is advised. This is one of the main reason why the distribution of Cialis to the public needs to be strictly regulated. It is the amount of regulations in place that have provided the opportunity for outside producers to create their own “generic Cialis” and Cialis alternatives to meet the demand for the drug.
The problem with taking Cialis alternatives or herbal version is that since less stringent standards need to be met, people using alternative can experience adverse side affects that they were unaware could be a problem. The requirements that these alternate products have to meet can be far below that which the official Cialis has to meet. This includes distribution so these drugs can be sold in far larger batches and with far fewer checks in place on the buyer. This can allow people to buy it when they are currently taking medication with which it will react adversely, but since the seller is indifferent and the buyer is unaware, problems can occur.
