Tadalafil Cialis

Tadalafil Cialis

Fast facts on Cialis:

Here are some key points about Cialis. More detail is in the main article.

  • Under the name Cialis, tadalafil is used to treat erectile dysfunction.
  • As Adcirca, the same drug treats pulmonary arterial hypertension and benign prostatic hyperplasia.
  • Cialis increases blood flow to the penis, enabling an erection to occur when a man is sexually stimulated.
  • Anyone with a heart condition should seek medical advice before using Cialis.
  • Cialis is a medication, with potentially serious adverse effects. It should only be obtained from a reputable source and used under medical supervision.

Uses

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

Patients with erectile dysfunction can take Cialis as needed, but it should not be taken more frequently than once every 24 hours.

For the medication to work, a man needs to be sexually aroused. The drug does not provide an erection without sexual stimulation.

A first dose is 10 milligrams (mg) at least 30 minutes before sexual activity. Dosage can then be adjusted depending on how the individual responds. The maximum is 20 mg as a single dose.

The patient should take no more than one dose in 24 hours, but a daily dose of 10 mg to 20 mg is not recommended. This is because a portion of the drug remains in the system for at least 24 hours.

Patients who expect to be sexually active at least twice a week can take a daily dose of 5 mg, and this may be reduced to 2.5 mg once daily, depending on the individual reaction.

Tadalafil for erectile dysfunction is only for use by adults aged 18 years and above.

Side effects

Taking tadalafil, or Cialis, with a nitrate medication can cause a serious and sudden drop in blood pressure, or hypotension.

A man who is taking a nitrate drug prescription for heart problems or chest pain should not use tadalafil.

 They could be a sign of a serious complication. Immediate medical assistance should be sought:

  • dizziness
  • nausea
  • numbness, tingling or pain the jaw, arms, chest, or neck

If an erection lasts for more than 4 hours, this is known as priapism. It can damage the penis, so medical assistance is necessary.

In rare cases, Cialis can undermine the blood flow to the optic nerve of the eye, causing sudden loss of vision. This is more likely in patients with hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, pre-existing eye problems, or heart disease.
