Cialis is one of the most potent medications for treating erectile dysfunction. I mean, this drug was not given the moniker of “Weekend Pill” for nothing. Despite its effectiveness, it is still important that men understand how this pill works.
Users need to understand how the Weekend Pill can affect their body. Not everyone handles drugs in the exact same way. Here are a few facts about this drug that all men need to know before they even give it a try.
How the Weekend Pill works
Tadalafil, the Weekend Pill’s non generic name, promotes blood flow to the penis, which is why it makes it so much easier to get an erection. It is a PDE5 inhibitor much like Viagra or Levitra.
Like almost any other drug out there, the Weekend Pill can have its own unwanted side effects. The unpleasant effects of using the Weekend Pill includes headaches and back pain. These are the typical side effects caused by using this drug.
The nice thing about it though is that out of all the other medications used for treating erectile dysfunction, most users agree that the Weekend Pill’s side effects are the mildest. If anything, most users simply describe their experience as a short and mild discomfort.
Longer time to do your thing
The reason why Cialis is called the Weekend Pill is because its effects could be felt for 36 hours. On some websites, the Weekend Pill’s duration is actually listed as both a pro and a con – I believe that it is the former.
I do not know about you guys, but I look forward to waking up in the morning and making sweet love to my lady love especially during the weekends – it’s a hassle having to get up and pop a pill an hour before I “wake up.” I think that it is one of the best ways to start the day and the Weekend Pill makes that happen.
Common misconceptions about the Weekend Pill
TV media often plays up the effects of drugs on an absurd level for a comedic punch. Erectile dysfunction drugs are not spared from the exaggerated sketches. On TV, drugs like Viagra or the Weekend Pill automatically gives a person an uncontrollable erection. Nothing can be farther from the truth.
While it is true that medications can make it very easy to get and maintain an erection, these medications cannot possibly give you something that is physically impossible. To achieve an erection, you need the drug and the right stimulation to result in sexual arousal – you cannot have an erection without a trigger.
Treatments can be short or long term, it’s all up to you
A common misconception for people who are new to erectile dysfunction medication is how long they should take the treatment. People are not constrained to choosing one form of medication and exclusively taking it for a stretch of time.
You can switch between these drugs depending on what your expected results are. I sometimes alternate my medication between Viagra and Cialis.
