What is Cialis?

Cialis (tadalafil) is a prescription treatment which helps men with erection problems. Since its approval in 2003, it has gone on to become more successful than other treatments due to the 36 hours each tablet can last for. This gave Cialis the nickname the 'weekend pill'. Unlike other erectile dysfunction treatments such as Viagra and Levitra where you may need to plan before having sex, Cialis can be taken once when required and help you to achieve and sustain a stronger erection for up to two days when aroused.

What's the difference between Cialis and Cialis Daily?

Both Cialis (10mg or 20mg dose) and Cialis Once Daily (2.5mg or 5mg) contain the same active ingredient tadalafil, however they differ in how and when they are taken. Cialis Daily is lower dosage and taken every day. The main benefit of this is spontaneity; you don't need to remember to take a pill around half an hour before sex. The lower dosages are also more beneficial for certain men prone to side effects. The standard Cialis pill is only taken on a needs-be basis. The only difference is in the lower dosages available which can be taken once a day (every 24 hours) compared to one every 36 hours.

How does Cialis work?

Cialis is classified as a PDE-5 (phosphodiesterase type 5) inhibitor which works by relaxing the blood vessels in the penis. When you are aroused a nucleotide - cGMP is released in your body, relaxing the blood vessels in the penis. This enables better blood flow, making the penis erect. PDE-5 is a natural enzyme which breaks down cGMP. The active ingredient tadalafil inhibits PDE-5 from working too soon, making it easier for you to achieve and sustain a fuller and firmer erection. Cialis works in as little as 30 minutes and enables you to continue to experience the benefits of it for up to 36 hours.

What are the benefits of taking Cialis tablets?

Both psychological or physiological issues, and sometimes a combination of the two can cause erectile dysfunction in men, as the condition is not strictly limited by age.

Men who use Cialis in the hope of treating erectile problems can experience a variety of benefits associated with it. These include:

  • A possible increase in self-esteem and sexual confidence
  • Potency in the system for up to 36 hours
  • Can start to work within 20-30mins of use
  • High success rate in users

Secondary benefits that can be experienced also include the lowering of blood pressure and a possible reduction in symptoms for men with enlarged prostates.[1] The lower 2.5mg or 5mg dosages may also be suitable for men who have other related medical conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

How do I take Cialis?

When using this medication, 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 you for up to 36 hours in the system, but will only do so when you are aroused.

Cialis Take your tablet on an empty stomach, or with a meal. Preferably with water, and at least 30 minutes before sexual activity/intercourse The Cialis tablets do not work unless you are sexually aroused Your erection will only last as long as you're aroused Talk to your doctor before using this treatment if you're currently taking any other ED medication Store the tablets at room temperature, preferably away from light and moisture

How long does Cialis last for?

Cialis can last up to 36 hours, although this is not the case for every man. The diagram below shows the typical concetration of Cialis in the blood. As you can see, the effect begins to lessen after 6 hours of taking the tablet.

How do I take Cialis 2.5mg or 5mg?

The lower dosage tablets can be taken at any time of the day, with or without food, but it is recommended that you take your daily dose at approximately the same time as the previous day.

What dosages are available?

The dosage will depend on several different factors including the severity of your impotence, possible drug interactions, your age and any prior experience you've had with Cialis. Our partner doctors will take these factors into account and use this when prescribing the treatment.

There are four different dosages of Cialis that are available, these are: 2.5mg, 5mg, 10mg and 20mg. The starting dose is usually 10 mg, which is effective for the majority of users. If a lower dosage is required, then 5mg tablets are to be taken instead. The 20mg dose is usually recommended if the other dosages have not proved potent enough and if no side effects have been experienced. Whilst the 2.5mg dosage is usually prescribed for men that are very prone to side effects but require help in achieving an erection successfully.

Are there any side effects with Cialis?

Side effects may occur when using any prescription medication, as the body needs to become accustomed to the new medicine in the system. If you do experience any of the following on a regular basis, you may find a lower dosage is just as effective, but much less likely to give you side effects.

More common:

Less common:

Ensure you speak with your doctor before deciding whether to purchase this treatment especially if you have high or low blood pressure, any heart or liver issues. For further information about possible side effects, be sure to refer to the available NHS resources.

What are the precautions/interactions for Cialis?

Before taking Cialis for the first time, it is always recommended for to tell your doctor if you think you may be allergic to it, as they may be able to prescribe something more suitable for your condition. Also, it's important to disclose any heart problems you're currently dealing with, as well as any other serious health conditions. Tadalafil (the active ingredient in Cialis) can cause low blood pressure when used in conjunction with nitrates. For available alternatives please visit the erectile dysfunction page for more information.
