Vardenafil HCl is the Fastest Acting ED Medication

It cannot be denied that most men with erectile dysfunction (ED) owe Viagra a ‘thanks’ because it was them who pioneered ED medications.  If not for them, there might be no ED medications today.  Of course, this does not mean you will need to stick to that brand forever because there are other and much better ED medications in the market today than that of V…ra.  Take for instance, vardenafil HCl.  This ED drug is considered to be the most effective there is and has even surpassed Viagra in terms of efficacy.

According to different surveys performed, Viagra only has an average of 84% efficacy, whereas vardenafil HCl dominates it with 86% percent.  While the 2% may not seem much, if you belong to that group, then it means a lot.  For this reason, a lot of previous Viagra users have switch ship and are now taking vardenafil HCl as their preferred ED treatment drug of choice.  They even claim that they now experience fewer side effects ever since they moved to using vardenafil HCl.

Economic turmoil is hurting Canadians' health: CMA survey

Twenty-three percent of Canadians say the recession has affected how they take care of their health.

That disturbing information -- that the economy's problems are causing pain not just in our portfolios -- was revealed in new survey results published by the Canadian Medical Association Monday in Saskatoon in the 9th Annual National Report Card on Health Care (PDF).

The survey showed that the "economic downturn" (as the survey euphemistically calls it) has had dire results for Canadians' health.

  • 25% of Canadians cancelled or pushed back a dentist's appointment
  • 16% skipped meals
  • 32% cut back on their food budgets
  • 14% delayed or skipped buying some prescription medications
  • 23% have slept more poorly
  • 22% chose not to join a new sport or recreational activity
  • 10% cancelled or delayed a doctor's appointment
"Governments have ignored tackling the tough issues facing our health care system," outgoing CMA president Dr Robert Ouellet said in a release. "There is a mistaken impression that health care is somehow insulated from today's harsh economic reality. Our polling results show -- that's just not the case."

Dr Ouellet told reporters on Monday the survey results surprised and concerned him.

The stock market's tumble has also affected the Canadian Medical Association's financial health. The organization has trimmed more than $1 million from its operating budget after it saw its investments shrunk by the recession.
