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.

Jeffrey Turnbull to be acclaimed CMA president-elect

The deadline has come and gone for a challenge to be mounted against Ottawa physician Jeffrey Turnbull's nomination to be the Canadian Medical Association's next president.

Under CMA election rules, a member could have chosen to mount a challenge from the floor of the General Council assembly. No challenges have been attempted since Dr Jack Burak attempted but failed to defeat BC nominee Dr Brian Day in 2006.

Dr Turnbull is an internist and chief of staff at the Ottawa Hospital. He has been the medical director of the Ottawa Inner City Health Project, which provides not only medical care but also doses of alcohol, to homeless men in the city.

The campaign Dr Turnbull ran for the presidential nomination made clear that his politics differs from those of Drs Brian Day and Robert Ouellet, who have both urged loosening restrictions on private healthcare funding in the Canada Health Act.

You can read more about Dr Turnbull and his nomination in this Canadian Medicine piece from March.

Dr Turnbull will serve as the organization's president for one year, beginning next August, after Saskatoon FP Anne Doig's term ends.
