Cialis and Viagra. Let’s Compare

May 29th, 2009 — 9:23am

Basically, what we know about Cialis is the that it is the first of Viagra’s rivals because it helps erectile dysfunction just the same as Viagra does. Following its appearance in 1998, Viagra was heralded as the first successful treatment of its kind. Today ICOS corporation has come out with a new popular product which may one day exceed the astonishing success of Viagra. Levitra, another product of the same class, is expected to appear on the market soon.

The market for Cialis has exploded, which surpasses the success of Viagra in the late ’90′s. The fact that is important is that there are about thirty million people in the USA and about one hundred and seventy five million overseas that have this problem, and only a few are making use of Viagra. Consumers have spent a total of $1.5 billion on Viagra alone, while the combined total for all these type drugs is $6 billion.

As with Viagra, Cialis could be considered a general sexual enhancement aid, and not just an erectile dysfunction treatment. These medications work by blocking phosphodiesterase (an enzyme that relaxes some of our muscles) to allow an accelerated flow of blood to the penis, and this is why they are a success and also provide improvement to our lives.

The fact that Cialis is obtainable with a prescription in countries such as Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Australia, and the United Kingdom (however not in the USA) is another advantage this medication has over Viagra.

Moreover, an argument which is commonly used in support of Cialis is that its effects occur more rapidly than those of Viagra; the process can begin to work roughly 16 minutes after the pill is taken, and the effects can continue for as much as 24 hours or longer. On the other hand, Viagra is effective after one hour and you will feel those effects for four hours at most.

It is estimated that 80 percent of men who have tried Viagra or Cialis have been able to achieve and maintain an erection. However, those who used Cialis found that the effects of the drug lasted for more than 36 hours, while Viagra users enjoyed benefits for a briefer time period. One explanation is that Cialis persists longer in the body than Viagra. While Viagra’s blood concentration drops by half after four hours, Cialis’s concentration drops by half after seventeen hours. Twenty five percent of the Cialis dose remains in the body by this time.

In conclusion, it may be stated that Cialis has finally broken through the aura of invincibility surrounding Viagra by providing additional hard to beat benefits to compete with the widely known advantages of Viagra. Therefore, Cialis may be considered superior to Viagra in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Let us hope things improve and do not stay this way.

Tooth Whitening Problems and Limitations

May 21st, 2009 — 9:13am

Tooth whitening does have a few problems and limitations. They are described below.

Sensitivity in the Teeth and Gums: Tooth and gum sensitivity are the two most common symptoms from tooth whitening. An ill-fitting mouth tray is usually the cause of gum irritation. Tooth sensitivity generally arises when you initially begin the whitening procedure.
If you experience either of these symptoms, they can be decreased by following these steps.

* If you are using a tray, trying using it for shorter periods of time or less frequently. The results are the same but it takes longer.
* Discontinue use for a couple of days before beginning the treatments again.
* Utilize toothpaste that is prepared for susceptible teeth. Such toothpastes utilize potassium nitrate which eases the nerve endings of your teeth.
* Ask your dentist to give you fluoride products to shield and remove the minerals in your teeth. This product should be worn before and after treatments. Your dentist will provide more information about this.
*Over-the-counter products can treat gum irritation.
Certain people have more sensitivity in their mouths. Though, approximately half the people who use whitening products experience some minor tooth sensitivity or gum pain.

Composite Fillings, Crowns, and Veneers: Teeth whitening is not effective on crowns, veneers or composite fillings. If you don’t replace the veneer or crown, the result may leave you with teeth of varying colors. It is recommended to have any composite work done prior to whitening your teeth. If you don’t it will have to be removed.

Medications From Your Prescription. Are You Dealing With a Good Doctor?

May 6th, 2009 — 5:34am

Surely most doctors are genuinely concerned with their patients’ welfare, but that is not always the case. Of course, not all bad doctors were always bad.  Sometimes they become bad over time due to heavy work load and too many patients. It doesn’t matter how your bad doctor became bad. You and your family deserve to be seen by the best. Here are a few things you should be on the lookout for to determine if you are dealing with a bad doctor.

Poor communication.

A lack of communication should send up all kinds of warning signs for you. Open communication between patient and doctor is extremely important. It is the only way to be sure you are truly getting the medical care you need. Talking about your symptoms and discussing your questions with you is the job of a good doctor. If it seems your doctor thinks he knows what you are planning to say and won’t let you finish your sentences, you may be dealing with a bad doctor. When that happens, medical problems may be misdiagnosed, or worse, go unnoticed. Regardless of how busy your doctor may be, he or she should always be able to listen to you and ask you questions regarding your symptoms.

His only answer is to write a prescription.

A bad doctor may just write you a prescription and never give a thought to natural solutions or alternative medicines. Because of this, you may miss out on a safer option. Of course prescription medications are an important part of modern medicine; however, they should not be the first and only solution your doctor ever offers. A simple lifestyle change may be all it takes to treat some problems, like mildly elevated blood pressure. Be sure your doctor tells you about all the possibilities before you accept a prescription medication.
