An acceptable cost-effective medicine can be recommended for listing if it treats or prevents significant medical conditions that are not covered, it is more effective than a currently listed drug, or it is as effective and safe as an existing listed drug. Cialis is one of the drugs on this list, and is subsidised by PBS.
Once upon a time there were erectile dysfunction drugs.
Viagra, Cialis & similar medicines have made possible sex intercourses for people with a vast display of ED, from psychological to physical impaired patients. Before marketing of sildenafil, in 1998, impotence was a very debilitating condition, with few treatment options, often very invasive, other times mostly ineffective. From then, more than twenty years ago, use of ED drugs have grown in every part of the world. Even the behavioral spectrum of ED user has evolved in time and today there’s a wider audience of Cialis and Viagra consumers in every part of the world, even here in Australia.
Australian law is very restrictive about use of ED drugs: pharmacies can sell Cialis and similar drugs only under a doctor’s prescription.
Viagra was designed as a solution for people with erectile dysfunction syndrome but in time has become a recreational drug. Used often before going to parties or even by teens at their prime, Cialis and Viagra are now a bestseller pill in online pharmacies all over the world.
But why Cialis, Viagra and levitra are so popular?
Let’s start by understanding how they work. Cialis is a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. It performs its function by increasing blood flow to the penis. When a man is sexually stimulated, the enhanced flow into the erectile tissue inside the penis, the “corpora cavernosa”, facilitates the occurring and the maintenance of erection.
Cialis must be used with caution in patients with heart diseases and other medical conditions such as pulmonary hypertension. It’s recommended a visit with the doctor before taking an ED drug to rule out any possible contraindication.
The increasing number of users in the age groups of 20s and 30s could be an indicator of increasing anxiety disorders among younger population. Anxiety, a psychological disorder characterized by feelings of excessive worry and nervousness, affects every year 14% of australians and women are more affected than men. Amongst anxiety disorders, depression and alcohol or drug abuse are the most pernicious problems. This is the big issue of increased ED drugs consumption in australian young population.
Stress, anxiety and a low self esteem can lead to consumption of ED drugs, as a “strategy” to manage difficulties during sex intercourses with own partners. There’s a diffuse performance anxiety amidst young en, partially due to increased web porn consumption and a distorted view of sex and natural relations between sex partners. Using Cialis is often seen as a “cheat” necessary to perform like a porn actor or to not disappoint the partner. Often youngsters that use Cialis or the first time really don’t need it. But pride that comes from sexual performance induce this young segment of population to use ED drugs as a way to improve their overall sexual effectiveness thus developing a psychological depence.
Is it safe?
Cialis is relatively safe in comparison to other drugs by a toxicological point of view and problems arises mainly in the psychological sphere. Uses of tadalafil (cialis active ingredient) and other ED drugs s a recreational drug can interfere with ordinary relationship as a consequence of stigma and fear of being discovered using these medicines. So people using it slowly develops a secretive and anxious behavior that hinders a normal sexual life. Fictional sex easily available in the internet leads to unrealistic expectations in sexual performance by females youngsters further accentuate the anxiety and eventually erectile dysfunction of their male partners.
This issue is a main topic in political management of ED drugs in Australia. New Zealand and UK have made Cialis available over the counter in their pharmacies while in our country a prescription is necessary to buy Cialis and Viagra tablets. Whereas this policy may facilitate the control of Ed drugs use by australian population it increases dramatically the number of men that searches non legit source of supply of this drugs. Web pharmacies and stores sells Cialis tablets and other similar medicines without necessity of prescription, easing access to impotence affected men to the treatment but also making available these medications for recreational abuse. It’s a fact that Viagra, Cialis and Levitra are the most counterfeited medicines in the world, so buying them on the web is a risky transaction and everyone must be very careful in choosing a reliable source of these pharmaceutical products.
It’s important that customers make use of it with a full knowledge of the facts. Too often youngsters with misconceptions will take it as a panacea for their psychological problems, leading them to further deterioration of their sexual life.
The main advice here is to always contact a medic before using them, to address effectively the reasons behind the urge of using them. Knowledge, awareness and self esteem are main components of a healthy sexual life.
