The treatment of erectile dysfunction is part of our daily lives as a result of the mass media advertising campaigns that have been undertaken. Each drug can easily be identified by their association with their ad campaigns. Sildenafil (Viagra) has previously been associated with major league baseball. Their current advertising campaign subtly shows their name but is more like a public service announcement dealing with erectile dysfunction. Everyone knows that this is the little blue pill.
Vardenafil (Levitra) has associated themselves as an advertiser of the National Football league. Their name is plastered around stadiums across the country. A lit flame is a part of their campaigns. A bathtub on the hill overlooking the valley with a couple in the tub is the visual that is associated with the campaign for tadalafil (Cialis).
Each of the agents has a specific pharmacologic profile. Tadalafil was approved by the FDA in 2003 and was the last of the 3 oral phosphodiesterase inhibit...

Viagra is best known for helping men with erectile dysfunction . The medication helps to relax certain muscles in the penis and therefore increasing blood flow. The main ingredient, sildenafil, is also marketed as Revatio, a medication used to increase the ability to exercise in in people with pulmonary arterial hypertension. It works in a similar way, relaxing blood vessels in the lungs to allow for blood to flow.
Scientists used this information as a basis for a mega-analysis of studies that had looked at using this type of medication and the effects on the heart which were published between January 2004 and May 214. Their analysis was published in the open-access journal BMC Medicine . In the clinical trials, participants, who had cardiovascular disorders, were given either PDE5i (sidenafil is a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor or PDE5i) or a placebo. This inhibits the enzyme PDE5, which can prevent the relaxation of smooth muscle tissue. The participants did not necessarily suff...
