Cialis FAQs

What is Cialis?

Cialis ('the weekend pill') is a prescription medication that helps men with erection problems. Since being introduced to the market in 2003, it has become one of the most successful ED treatments. This is due to its prolonged effects. Unlike other erectile dysfunction pills such as Viagra and Levitra, which require planning and rule out spontaneous intercourse, Cialis allows patients to achieve an erection over a longer time-frame (up to two days).

How does this treatment work?

Cialis is classified as a PDE-5 (phosphodiesterase type 5) inhibitor which works by relaxing the blood vessels in the penis. This enables better blood flow, making it easier to achieve and sustain a fuller, firmer erection. It works in as little as 30 minutes with effects lasting for up to 36 hours.

What dosages are available?

The dosage recommended will depend on several factors, including the severity of your impotence, possible drug interactions, your age and any prior experience you've had with ED medications. Our doctors will take these factors into account when you buy Cialis from us.

  • The starting dose is usually 10 mg, which is effective for the majority of users
  • The 20mg dose is usually recommended if 10mg has not proved potent enough and if no side effects have been experienced

How do I take Cialis?

A pill should be taken with water, either on an empty stomach or after a meal - at least 30 minutes before sex. It will continue to work for up to 36 hours, but will only support blood flow to the penis when you are aroused.

Can this medication be taken with food and alcohol?

Cialis is a very user-friendly medication that can be taken with a meal and even a small amount of alcohol. However, it is advised not to drink heavily when using this medication, as this may heighten the possibility of side effects occurring (e.g. headaches, dizziness and changes in blood pressure).

Yes. You can buy Cialis from HealthExpress today, and if it is approved for your use by one of our in-house doctors, we'll dispatch it with next-day delivery. All you have to do is fill out a quick and confidential consultation that will detail your condition and medical history.
