What's right for me, Sildenafil or Tadalafil?

OVERVIEW: If you’re considering medication to improve your erections and sexual experiences, you've probably heard about the two most popular active ingredients, Sildenafil and Tadalafil. Sildenafil is the active ingredient popularized by the brand Viagra and is designed to last 4-6 hours.  Tadalafil is the active ingredient in Cialis and designed to last 24-36 hours.

These medicines have a lot in common, including a success rate of more than 80 percent. They’ve both been well researched for decades, so you may be wondering which one will give you the best results.  

The 4 things you should know when making your decision.

1 -  Consider your plans.

When your evening plans with your special someone include dining, it’s important to remember that food can impact how effectively your body absorbs medication. Sildenafil & Tadalafil pills works best on an empty stomach, so it may not be the preferred choice for a night that includes dinner or cocktails.  Most troublesome are fatty meals are also a no-no because they can slow the onset of the drug’s active ingredient, meaning you’ll need to delay intercourse.  That is one of the main reasons people are choosing chewable tablets like Bluechew. 

2 - Timing is everything.

If you’ll be spending more than an evening with your partner and don't know when the timing is going to be right, you may prefer something that has a longer window of opportunity. Tadalafil remains in the body longer, as long as 36 hours in most cases, so there’s no need to rush your time together.  This is a big plus, because anxiety and nervousness also can cause Erectile Dysfunction (ED) even when the blood flow is working just fine.  

Sildenafil, however, has a short four- to six-hour active time frame, which means you’ll need to plan your time carefully to avoid it wearing off before you need it.  Traditionally men have reported Sildenafil working faster than Tadalafil, but with chewables both of them work up to twice as fast as pills, so there is not much to worry about if you choose Bluechew.

3 - Daily dosing or on demand.

For men that want to be able to have sex at any time, Tadalafil might be the better choice.  It’s available in lower dose tablets ranging from 5 mg. to 20 mg. and advised to be taken daily.  Since it stays in your system for 24-36 hours, it gives you more opportunities for spontaneous intercourse whenever you and your partner are in the mood.


Sildenafil, on the other hand, is prescribed for use as needed. It generally takes about an hour before becoming effective in pill, so a little extra patience (and planning) must be taken into consideration. With chewables that hour is greatly reduced to be closer to 30-40 minutes. It also has variable dosing depending on the patient's needs, from 30 mg. to 100 mg., but it wears off after four to six hours.

4 - Cost is always a factor

Now available in generic form the cost has been reduced considerably from their entry into the market.  This is very good news because it shouldn't cost a fortune to be intimate with your partner. At Bluechew we keep the price reasonable by never charging for a doctors appointment or patient support.
