My Dr. gave me samples of Cialis 20mg and Viagra 50mg.  He has me taking small pieces to try and see how they work.  Both have helped but I can't see any difference in the two.  My insurance will pay a small amount on them.  I have had no adverse reactions to them.  Anyone have any idea about which is best?

I have used both viagra and cialas. Both worked well. I liked the delay with cialis. It gives you time for things to be right. If you stick with viagra I would suggest checking out alldaychemist.com. I ordered the 100 mg generic viagra from them. Only about a dollar each. Seem to work just as good as the High dollar name brand bought locally.

good luck.

    PSA 5.7 - Discovered during Annual Physical with Family Practice Dr.
    Gleason 7
    Biopsy - 3 of 12 positive (up to 75%) all on left side of prostate
    RRP on Oct. 17, 2006 - Nerves on right side saved.
    All Lab's clear.  No Cancer outside prostate
    Cathiter in for 3 weeks due to complications in healing. Removed Nov. 9, 2006
    First Post op PSA on Dec. 11, 2006  Undetectable 0.00
    Office visit on Jan. 19th due to continued excessive urine leakage.
    Feb.20th Cystoscope and 2nd Post Op PSA. Another 0.00.....:)
    Dr. said everything looks fine.  Continue to work Kegeal's. Leaking appears to have improved  after Cystoscope?!?!?!  Down to 3-4 pads per day!
    March 1st  Leaking has crept back up to 6 - 8 pads a day ??????? 
    March 8th Started Detrol LA to see if it helps with the leaking?
    March 29th Collagen injection into sphincter / bladder neck area to control excessive leaking.  Worked for a couple of days then back to leaking.
    April 17th (Six Months Post Op) 2nd Collagen Injection to control excessive leaking.  Leaking started back next day at work!
    May 14th Second Opinion about my leaking and Options at OU Medical Center.  After reviewing my records the Dr. feels I will probably need some surgical intervention to stop my leaking.  But did agree to try Bio-Feedback and work hard on the Kegeal's first!
    May 30th Follow up with my Dr. and 3rd Post Op PSA 0.00 agian!!!
    June 1st Start Bio-Feedback to try to control my leaking.

Levitra is also another option.  It clears from your system (as does Viagra) more quickly.  Cialis stays in your system longer and the doctor advised us to try Viagara and/or Levitra before the Cialis.

Mika,
I have tried all three, and while I can't claim good results with any of them, the Viagara worked noticeably better for me. The Cialis didn't seem to work quite as well, and the Levitra made me feel kind of queasy all day. Everybody's body chemistry is different though. Your Doctor should be able to give you a sample pack or free sample prescription of Levitra. I would encourage you to try that too, and see what helps you the most. Good Luck!
Best,
Mike
