Side effects with tadalafil are about as common as with sildenafil and are similarly mild. Dose for dose, tadalafil is also a little bit more expensive than sildenafil. In our opinion, tadalafil is the better value, however: In studies, men and their partners prefer tadalafil to sildenafil. Tadalafil has superior psychological outcomes to sildenafil, providing more sexual confidence. The larger window for sexual activity (18-36 hours, compared to 4-6 hours with sildenafil) for many people justifies the slightly higher expense.

Contrarily, penile pumps act as mechanical stimulators by working directly on the penis and inducing an erection by drawing in blood.
Urethral suppositories (MUSE) have the same ingredient as ED injections (alprostadil) only they are in pellet form. You will insert the pellet into your urethra (urinary channel), where it will dissolve.
