Sildenafil & Tadalafil: Your Top 6 Questions Answered

We get it. Taking a pill to help your love life can be confronting, so it’s only normal that you’d have a few questions. Check out below where we’ve answered the most frequent questions thrown our way.

But first let’s take a look at your options:


Sildenafil requires a prescription and is available in 25, 50 and 100 milligrams. It works within thirty minutes of consuming and remains active for four to six hours from consumption.

Sildenafil works best when taken on an empty stomach as food reduces the absorption and thus the effectiveness. It is recommended that you avoid grapefruit as this can impact how the drug works. Some side effects to look out for include hot flashes, headaches, indigestion, a runny nose and a green-blue visual tinge.

Sildenafil is the best-known treatment for erectile-dysfunction and has been around for over 15 years. The price has dropped significantly over the last few years making it more accessible.


Tadalafil is taken once a day in a low dosage and allows you to achieve an erection at any time of the day or night. Effects are felt within 20 minutes, and they can last up to 36 hours. Tadalafil is effective for 81% of men and is available in 2.5, 5, 10 and 20 milligrams.

Tadalafil is not affected by eating or drinking, however caution should be taken when consuming grapefruit. Similarly to Sildenafil, side effects include hot flashes, headaches, indigestion and a runny nose.

Ok, so here are you top 6 questions:

  • Do they really work?

Both Tadalafil and Sildenafil really work. They enable most men to achieve an erection, however how they do this differs slightly. Tadalafil requires sexual stimulation to occur so as to ensure you are sexually aroused. Therefore, a lot of users feel like the experience is more organic when compared to Sildenafil. Sildenafil pretty much guarantees that you will experience an erection within 30 minutes of consuming the drug, even without stimulation. Typically, the erection lasts until Sildenafil is no longer in the system which usually takes 3 to 5 hours.

  • Do you need a prescription?

Yes, both require a prescription and it is recommended talking to a physician before taking either Tadalafil and/ or Sildenafil.

  • Which one works quicker?

Tadalafil typically works quicker as its effects can be felt within 15 to 20 minutes, whereas Sildenafil typically takes 30 minutes to take effect. But both are reasonably quick to take effect.

  • How much does it cost?

This varies depending on where you are purchasing it from. Our cost for 3 Tadalafil chewables starts at $20 per month. For Sildenafil, our prices start at $20 for 5 Sildenafil chewables.

  • Will it increase penis size?

No, it will not have an effect on the size of the penis.

  • Does it make you last longer?

Typically, yes. Both Sildenafil and Tadalafil result in increased blood flow to the penis, which also decreases sensitivity. This varies depending on the dosage, metabolism, diet, and other factors. Also, it will have different effects on different people.
