Hello, thank you for your question.
The answer is a general description of the problem you’re having. Please click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with us.

Based on the above information, we understand your concern about the problem you’re having. To your knowledge, erectile dysfunction can be caused by many things, such as:

  • psychogenic - such as stress, anxiety, problematic relationships
  • psychiatry - anxiety disorder, depression
  • neurogenic - trauma, diabetes, alcohol
  • endocrine - thyroid problems
  • arteriogenic - related to blood vessels such as high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, high cholesterol and more
  • side effects of drugs such as antihypertensive, antidepressants, and more

For your information, uncontrolled chronic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension and uncontrolled cholesterol can lead to many complications, including erectile dysfunction. You should consult your doctor and discuss any problems you may have before starting another medication such as Viagra. Most cases have a good prognosis after the above causes are well controlled.

According to your inquiry, Viagra and Cialis are drugs of the same group that are commonly used to treat problems related to:

  • Heart problems
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Benine prostate hyperthrophy

However, these medication requires a doctor’s prescription. Therefore, please refer to health professionals regarding the suitability of the medication for your existing health status. Please click here to talk to our pharmacist in private for further inquiries. Thank you.

Therefore, it is advisable to refer to this problem further as additional information and examination are required before conclusions and treatment can be provided.
