What's right for me, Sildenafil, Tadalafil or Vardenafil?
If you’re considering medication to improve your erections and sexual experiences, you've probably heard about the three most popular active ingredients; Sildenafil, Tadalafil, and Vardenafil. They have been researched for decades and popularized by Viagra®, Cialis®, and Levitra®.
These ingredients have some small differences and a lot in common, including a more than 80 percent success rate. Below you find a high-level overview of their benefits, differences, risks, and important safety information to help you make an informed decision.
Important Safety Information
Do not take Sildenafil (sildenafil citrate), Tadalafil, or Vardenafil if you take medication containing nitrates or guanylate cyclase stimulators for pulmonary hypertension as this could cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. If you are allergic to Sildenafil, Tadalafil, or Vardenafil or any ingredients contained in these medications, do not consume BLUECHEW®. Discuss your health with your provider to ensure that you are healthy enough for sex. If you experience chest pain, dizziness, or nausea during sex, seek immediate medical help. Sildenafil, Tadalafil, and Vardenafil can cause serious side effects. Read more.
Four 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. If Sildenafil is taken after a meal, particularly those rich in fats, then it may take longer for the medicine to work. That is one of the main reasons people choose chewable tablets that break down in your mouth and are now available at BlueChew®.
Tadalafil may be taken without regard to food intake; however, we do not recommend eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while taking the chewable tablets offered through the BlueChew.com portal, as grapefruit can affect the way the body metabolizes the medication.
Vardenafil may be taken with or without food; however, if taken after a meal, particularly those rich in fats, it may take longer for the medicine to work. We do not recommend eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while taking the chewable tablets offered through the BlueChew.com portal, as grapefruit can affect how the body metabolizes the medication.
2. Timing is everything.
If you are spending more than an evening with your partner and don't know when the timing will be right, you may prefer a drug 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 can cause Erectile Dysfunction (ED) even when the blood flow is working just fine.
Sildenafil and Vardenafil, however, have a short four- to eight-hour active time frame, which means you'll need to plan your time carefully to avoid it wearing off before you need it.
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. 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 and Vardenafil, on the other hand, are prescribed for use as needed. It generally takes about an hour before becoming effective, so a little extra patience (and planning) must be taken into consideration. Please visit BlueChew.com/plans to see the range of doses offered on BlueChew.com.
4. Cost is always a factor.
Since both medications molecules are off-patent, the cost has been reduced considerably from their entry into the market. This is excellent news because it shouldn't cost a fortune to be intimate with your partner. Your particular prescription will be based on the strength of the drug, so, obviously, the higher the dosage, the higher the price will be for you. At BlueChew® we try to keep the price reasonable by never charging for a healthcare provider's appointment and patient support.
