Tadalafil Vs Cialis

Description

Cialis is the brand name for a medicine known as Tadalafil which has been proven to be effective for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

Perhaps your prescription has always been for Tadalafil, but when you collected your medicine from the pharmacy the name on the packaging of your medicine was Cialis®. However, now the label on the box of tablets says Tadalafil. Or, maybe, your tablets look different from the ones you collected last time from the pharmacy – they are a different colour and/or shape. You may, therefore, be wondering if they are the same thing or if someone has made a mistake and given you a different medicine.

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.
