What is Tadalafil (Cialis generic)?
Tadalafil is a prescription medicine used to treat erectile dysfunction. The active ingredient in the erectile dysfunction medication Cialis, Tadalafil can be purchased without the Cialis branding and is often referred to as ‘generic Cialis’. Generic medications usually cost less than their branded counterparts but are just as effective.
Tadalafil is a quick-acting medication, taking effect in as little as 30 minutes and lasting up to 36 hours. It’s the longest lasting erectile dysfunction treatment currently available. Tadalafil is also used to treat prostate gland enlargement and other conditions affecting men’s sexual health. Men with heart conditions, high blood pressure and/or diabetes who otherwise can’t use a PDE-5 inhibitor may take the lower dose of 5mg (branded as Cialis Daily or Cialis Once-a-Day). Your doctor will advise further and choose the correct medication and dose for you.
Tadalafil has been given the nickname “The Weekend Pill” because of its long-lasting effects. This is because it lasts a long time. Men who take Tadalafil on Saturday may find it lasts the whole weekend – a benefit appreciated by couples as it relieves the pressure of timing sexual intercourse.
Who can use tadalafil?
Tadalafil is suitable for adult men diagnosed with erectile dysfunction – the inability to get or maintain an erection firm enough for sex. Tadalafil has been shown to significantly improve the ability of obtaining a hard erect penis suitable for sexual activity.
How tadalafil works
Tadalafil, like other erectile dysfunction tablet treatments such as Viagra (sildenafil), Levitra (vardenafil), and Spedra (avanafil), works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax, allowing the flow of blood into your penis during sexual stimulation.
These medicines work by blocking an enzyme called PDE5. They are very effective and have few side effects.
Erectile dysfunction treatments often improve sexual performance and strengthen relationships.
What dosages are available for Tadalafil?
Tablets for erectile dysfunction come in three strengths: 5, 10, and 20 milligrams. The standard starting dose is 10mg. For most men, this will be a sufficient amount; however, some men may experience side effects at this dosage level. If you fall into this category of patients, your doctor may prescribe the 5mg strength tablet instead. If the 10mg dose does not provide relief from ED symptoms or if it is causing bothersome side effects , your physician might recommend increasing to the highest available strength of 20mg .
The 5mg dose is typically prescribed to men with other heath issues, those who frequently have difficulty achieving an erection, and men whose prostate gland has grown larger.
Even if you’ve had a reaction or side effect from other PDE-5 inhibitors, Tadalafil may still be suitable for you. All PDE-5 inhibitors have slightly different ingredients, but they all work in similar ways. You may find that Tadalafil is a better fit for you. Be sure to tell your doctor about any previous experiences with other PDE-5 inhibitors.
Tadalafil side effects
Although Tadalafil is mostly well-tolerated, you may experience the following side effects. If so, speak with your doctor who can adjust your dosage or recommend a different medication.
The side effects of this new medication are common and mild. They should only last a short time, as your body adjusts to the medicine.
- Back pain
- Muscles aches
- Nasal congestion
- Facial flushing
- Pain in arms and legs
Less common side effects include:
- Stomach ache
- Feeling or being sick
- Chest pains
- Vision loss
- Hearing loss
A very rare side effect of Tadalafil is an allergic reaction. This happens infrequently, but difficulties in breathing, or hives or sudden loss of vision require immediate medical help.
A persistent uncountable erection, known as priapism, is a common concern with erectile dysfunction medication users, but it is very rare. If you think you might be experiencing this, you should seek medical advice.
Tadalafil is a prescription-only medication and is not available to purchase over the counter at a pharmacy. Never take Tadalafil unless it has been prescribed specifically to you.
