Ed drugs: While both drugs are similar, cali's has a longer half life and some feel that is an advantage. Both drug companies have generous sample programs for these costly meds....My advice is to be seen by your doc for ED and try each one....Then choose the one you prefer....But if you're ED is a new problem then see your doc first....Stop smoking and loose weight are better than meds for ED for many pts.

Not everyone: Doesn't help females. Only helps males w/erectile dysfunction. Don't take if you have cardiac disease, etc. Don't take with certain other medication such as Alpha blockers (given for high blood pressure and/or prostate problems). Check w/your doctor. There are some side effects as well.
