The drug is in the same class and this one is supposed to work faster than the competition according to what is around the imageweb with a few MD comments.  This one gets the time down to 30 minutes so that dual bathtub or whatever arrangements are made don’t have to wait as long.  I could never figure out the dual bathtub commercials for Cialis.  Viagra is still out here with big sales but we know the patent time is running short so the new drug will no less have to compete in that end soon.  I think it was New Zealand that already as a generic Viagra available.  If medication doesn’t work there’s also this vibrator that is FDA approved and available by prescription. 

FDA Approves First Male Vibrator for Use for Men Suffering From ED–Available By Prescription Only

A medication that could be a faster-working alternative to Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs got approval from the Food and Drug Administration Friday.

The brand name you will be hearing in those inevitable ads: Stendra.

It’s made by a company called Vivus, Inc., and belongs to the same class of medicines as Viagra, from Pfizer Inc., Cialis, from Eli Lilly, and Levitra, from GlaxoSmithKline and Bayer. All inhibit the same enzyme, PDE5, and work by increasing blood flow to the penis.
