VIAGRA is a prescription drug that works by increasing blood flow to the penis.

When a man is sexually stimulated, VIAGRA helps the penis fill with enough blood to cause an erection. After sex is over, the erection goes away. It remains effective for about 12 hours.

During arousal, the arteries in the penis relax and widen, allowing more blood flow into the erectile tissues. These arteries then expand and harden. The veins that carry blood away from the penis become compressed, restricting the blood flow out of the penis. More blood begins flowing in and less flows out, making the penis larger, and causing an erection. Blood must be able to reach and remain in the erectile tissues to maintain erection quality.

Levitra and Cialis work the same way as Viagra, blocking the same enzyme. Though it's unlikely any one works better than Viagra overall, slight chemical differences mean that if one brand doesn't work for a patient, another one might.
