Why Generic Cialis (Tadalafil) Is Now Available?

Cialis is a drug marketed by pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly for the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.

The compound belongs to the class of phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) inhibitors which mediate relaxation of vascular smooth muscle in the corpus cavernosum thus facilitating erection.  In a natural setting, after sexual stimulation, an erection occurs through the release of nitric oxide (NO).

Cialis was approved by the Competent Authorities to be placed on the market in 2003, after 5 years of Viagra supremacy (Viagra being the only drug approved for the treatment of Erectile dysfunction until then).

Cialis’ main ingredient is tadalafil and can either be taken daily (meaning it is always active in the body) or 30 minutes to 12 hours before activity to last up to 36 hours.

This longer lasting formula is one of the benefits of Cialis over the “little blue pill” (Viagra) which has proved to be more appealing to most men.

Cialis comes in yellow, film-coated and almond-shaped tablets in 5, 10 and 20 milligram (mg) doses.

Cialis belongs to so-called “lifestyle” drugs that are of choice because they are intended to improve your life, special appearance or specific illnesses but they do not cure or save lives.

Are Generic Medicines as Safe as the Originals?

Yes. The generic drug contains the same compound as the “original” drug. Also, it has the same exposure to adverse effects like the “original” drug. The manufacturing company that is marketing the generic, must provide safety information about the product and perform a number of clinical studies. Generics should only be obtained from a reputable source and used under medical supervision.

What are the Advantages in Choosing Generic Cialis?

The generic drug is cheaper than the original due to the fact that the initial investment in performing the clinical studies targeted to prove the product’s efficacy and safety is smaller. Because the generic maker didn’t have the costs of developing the product, it can charge a much lower price for it. And when several companies are making the same generic drug, competition can drive the price down further.

When will generic Cialis be available?

After a patent dispute was resolved in the summer of 2017, Cialis is expected to be available as generic tadalafil as early as September of 2018. Previously, Cialis was expected to remain brand-only until 2020.

How popular is Cialis?

On GoodRx, Cialis is currently the second most popular PDE5 inhibitor, the class of medications that also includes Viagra and Levitra. It’s the most popular of the medications specifically used to treat ED (sildenafil / Revatio is the most popular in the class, but it is only approved for pulmonary arterial hypertension).

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.
