Choices, choices… While we all enjoy having choices, sometimes it does tend to become somewhat daunting and confusing to effectively chose what is right for you, in any situation- and medication is certainly no exception. Get it wrong, and you may just end up with another whole host of complications, not to mention simply not actually treating what needed fixing to begin with!

One such choice to be made is buying erectile dysfunction medication. There are so many on the market today, all promising different benefits. Two such comparisons are Viagra and Tadalafil. Let’s break it down into “easy to digest” pieces of information, to look at the differences of these two medications:
