What’s the history behind Cialis?

Cialis (tadalafil) is an erectile dysfunction (ED) drug manufactured and marketed by Eli Lilly. Approved by the FDA on November 21st, 2003, it became the third drug of its kind—after Viagra (1998) and Levitra (8/2003). As of 2015, Cialis overtook Viagra to become the top-selling ED drug worldwide. Part of this has to do with the nature of the medication. Cialis is taken daily, active for 36 hours, and provides erection support only when sexually aroused (a more natural approach). Versus Viagra, which is short-acting and taken right before sex. The main side effects of Cialis are also a bit more mild – muscle cramps, as opposed to Viagra’s vision distortions

Have Cialis prices changed recently?

Cialis prices have moderately increased. Cialis is already expensive, and as a brand with no generic, there isn’t much competition. Like many brand-only drugs, Cialis prices have crept up slowly. Over the past 6 months, cash prices for Cialis have increased from about $370 to over $400—based on actual pharmacy claims for fills of thirty 5 mg tablets.

Why Cialis?

Cialis, Viagra and several other ED medicines are phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) inhibitors, which work by inhibiting the enzyme that regulates blood flow to the penis. The principal difference with Cialis is its duration. Unlike Viagra and Levitra, which last for about 4 and 12 hours respectively, Cialis lasts for about 36 hours. Patients will not have a continuous erection, but can achieve one when sexually stimulated throughout that time frame. Under ideal circumstances, a man can buy Cialis to take on a Friday and still experience the effects on Sunday morning.

Will generic Cialis be the same?

Generic medicines may differ in their packaging or in the size or shape of the tablets, but they are required to be medically the same as their branded equivalents. The dosages, effects and active ingredients are the same. Quality assurance of both branded and generic medicines is carried out by the European Medicines Agency in London or by the governing authorities in member countries where the medicine is sold.
