Do Viagra, Cialis lose their efficacy?

I have taken Viagra before.  And during the past 1.5 years, I have taken Cialis.
On average about once a week.  Sometimes for a few days in a stretch.

I find it working quite well.

However, I recently (in the past 2 weeks) found that my erection (after taking Cialis)
isn't as good as before.

I'm concerned that Cialis is losing its efficacy.  Has there been any research done on
this?  Do I need higher dosage?  Or should I reduce the frequency of taking them to
preserve its efficacy?

Anyone has similar experience, or maybe not?

Thanks

There are studies that show the long term efficacy of these drugs. I'm not an expert, but I don't think they just stop working like that. I've been using Cialis for over a year with excellent results. And there are ways to improve your results:

a) Always take these drugs on an empty stomach

b) There are studies that show that vitamin E can increase the efficacy of these drugs

c) PDE-5 inhibitors are very effective but they only act locally and don't increase libido; if you're feeling depressed, anxious, etc. Viagra probably won't work. Viagra and Cialis are mere erection facilitators, not erection initiators

d) Cialis takes a long time to work, I always take it at least 3 hours before sex

e) I always take Cialis with Vigamed (oral phentolamine), another ED drug; both drugs work sinergistically. Vigamed is not available in the US but you can order it online: vasomaxclinic.com

I hope this helps. Good luck!

   If its losing its effectiveness you may be developing blood flow problems. A urologist can tell with a Doppler test.

Everyone is different and reactions to these drugs vary a lot. Some guys prefer Viagra, others prefer Cialis or Levitra. I suggest you try all three brands and see which one is best for you.

When I first started taking Viagra it worked excellently even if I was nervous. Now it only works if I'm completely relaxed. Any ideas why?
