Doctor :   This probably is working in your favour.
User :   My doctor has approved and given me cialus after the tube, I know thwy are cheaper meds out there that are equivlant to cialus, what are they?
Doctor :   Apart from this, i cannot think of any other significant reason why no other drugs work on you.
User :   Nothing less expensive that cialas
Doctor :   Other drugs, like I mentioned are viagra, levitra.
Doctor :   Cialis is the best of them all (if you are looking for immediate action and long lasting action)
User :   I tried viagra and it did not have much effect, I have not tried Levitra
Doctor :   These are the 3 class of drugs available; namely Viagra that contains sidenafil, Levitra that contains vardenafil, and Cialis that contain tadalafil.
Doctor :   I have named them in the increasing order
User :   I was looking for a less expensive way to go, since cialus is the one that works with me a may be stuck at the hight rates
Doctor :   Viagra takes a long time to act with short duration of action
User :   Thank you doctor, I was hopping for something that worked at about 1/2 the cost. Have a good evening.
Doctor :   Levitra is intermittent and cialis acting the longest.
Doctor :   I guess the price of levitra is just short of cialis.
User :   Have a great evening
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me.
Doctor :   Bye for now.
