What are the benefits of Cialis?

The key benefits of Cialis are its longevity (lasting up to 36 hours) and it is effective within half an hour; you can enjoy the same benefits as you would with treatments like Viagra and Levitra but for much longer at a quicker rate.

Cialis' long lasting results provide you with more freedom to choose when you want to have sex, allowing you enjoy a more spontaneous love life. You can take the tablet knowing that you have a longer time period in which the treatment will be effective without having to worry about the effects wearing off. Out of the three leading erectile dysfunction treatments (Viagra, Cialis and Levitra), Cialis has the quickest reaction time of around 20-30 minutes.

How you get an erection?

In order to fully understand how Cialis works, you need to understand the mechanics involved in getting an erection.

The nervous system inside the erectile tissue of the penis releases nitric oxide (NO) when you are sufficiently aroused. When you are aroused, signals are sent from the brain that release different chemical messengers into the penile tissues, all with different tasks playing their part in the process. One of these messengers is a chemical called cyclic GMP (cGMP). This particular chemical causes blood vessels in the penis to widen, by relaxing a thin layer of muscles found in the walls of the blood vessels. This allows more blood to flow into the penis, which in turn creates an erection.

How does Cialis work?

Getting an erection is a process that's quite complicated. When you're aroused, more blood flows towards twin chambers in your penis (the corpus cavernosa). A molecule in your penis (cGMP) is released which instructs the walls of the corpus cavernosa to relax. This allows the increased blood flow to enter the penis, creating an erection. While this is happening, an enzyme called PDE-5 naturally breaks down the cGMP

Erectile dysfunction occurs when any part of this process is disrupted. This is either caused by a low production of the molecule cGMP, or because too much PDE-5 is preventing it from working.

Who can use Cialis?

You can buy Cialis if you are over the age of 18 and suffer from impotence on a recurring basis. It can also be ordered in either 10mg or 20mg which can be taken daily to treat erectile problems; ideal for men in relationships or who tend to have sex more than twice a week.

Like all medication, taking the right dosage is vital and is dependent on your state of health. If you are purchasing Cialis for the first time, it is generally recommended to test out a low dosage and work your way up if necessary to avoid the risk of experiencing side effects.

Cialis precautions?

Medication only available on prescription, like Cialis, pose a risk if taken by people with certain health conditions, or if it is combined with other medications:

Blood Pressure Kidneys

blood pressure and CialisA combination of high blood pressure medications and Cialis can dramatically lower your blood pressure.

kidney failure and CialisUse Cialis with caution if you have a decreased kidney function, and don't take Cialis if you have suffered from kidney failure in the past.

Nitrates Women

poppers nitrates and CialisIf you are taking any form of Nitrates, you should not take Cialis as it can cause dizziness or lead to a heart attack.

women and CialisWomen should avoid taking Cialis, as it hasn't been approved for use in women.

Some people fall into a risk group, because they are either taking regular medication or are suffering from a medical condition that is not too severe to stop them from using this impotence treatment. They still, however, need to be aware of the risks involved in taking Cialis, and to follow the doctor's guidelines for the correct dosage. Other men may simply be unable to take Cialis, or any PDE-5 inhibitors, due to their age, pre-existing medical conditions or the medications they are taking.

Risk groups and contraindications

If you fit into any of the below groups, you must ensure your doctor is aware before you start taking Cialis. In many cases, a doctor can prescribe a low dose to suit your needs, or even suggest a safer, better option for you if this impotence treatment is not suitable.

Risk groups – use Cialis with caution Contraindicated groups - don't use Cialis
  • Those with decreased kidney or liver function
  • People with cardiovascular disease
  • Those using treatments for high blood pressure
  • Patients with sickle cell disease or high blood pressure
  • Men with a physical abnormality of the penis
  • Women
  • Those under the age of 18
  • Those who suffer from a condition where sex is not recommended
  • Patients with uncontrolled angina
  • Men who have recently suffered a heart attack or stroke
  • Men with hypotension
  • Those using nitrates in any form
  • Those with an allergy to tadalafil or any of the other ingredients present in Cialis
  • People who have suffered from kidney failure

Cialis and other medications

During your consultation with the doctor, it's important to mention any medications that you may be taking, even if they are herbal or over-the-counter products. This allows the doctor to get a clearer idea of your health and to see whether you are able to safely use Cialis. There are some medications that can become dangerous if they are used alongside Cialis or may even influence how well Cialis works.

Do not take Cialis if:

  • You are using nitrates
  • You are taking alpha-blockers
  • You are using other impotence treatments

Can I buy Cialis without a prescription?

As Cialis is a prescription medication, you cannot buy it over the counter or without a prescription. Only an authorised doctor can prescribe it you. If you come across an online clinic that offers Cialis without a doctor's prescription, they are operating against the law and may deliver counterfeit treatment.

Please see the 'How do I buy Cialis online?' section below for more information.

What dosage of Cialis should I select?

The right dosage of Cialis will be prescribed to you depending on many different factors including:

  • How many times a week you are sexually active
  • The level of your erectile dysfunction
  • Your past and current level of health
  • Any medications you are taking

There are two types of Cialis: regular Cialis, which is taken as needed; and Cialis Once Daily, which is taken daily as a long-term impotence treatment. If you are unsure which type and dosage is best for you, you may find the below dosage information helpful.

Regular Cialis

Regular Cialis is what a doctor prescribes if you are a healthy male without any pre-existing conditions that would be affected by the medication, and if you aren't taking any medications that could react negatively with Cialis. Both the 10mg and 20mg dosages remain active in the body for up to 36 hours after taking them, which is why this impotence treatment is often called the 'weekend pill'.

10mg dosage

The Cialis 10mg dose is the lowest dose of Cialis available and is prescribed to:

  • Patients who are likely to suffer from side effects
  • If you are currently taking medications such as alpha-blockers
  • People with underlying conditions like kidney or liver problems

Benefits of taking the 10mg Cialis dose:

  • Reduced risk of side effects
  • Effectively treats impotence in most men
  • Dose can be increased if not as effective as desired

20mg dosage

The higher 20mg dosage is given as the starting dose, but can be decreased, depending on the results you experience. People most suited to this dose are:

  • Patients who haven't used an impotence treatment before
  • Ideal for people who aren't likely to suffer from side effects
  • Those who aren't currently taking any other contraindicated medications

Benefits of taking the 20mg dose:

  • Useful in cases where the lower 10mg dose didn't provide a benefit
  • Can be decreased if required
  • Able to treat most moderate to severe cases of impotence successfully

Cialis Once Daily

If you expect to have sexual intercourse more than twice a week, or if you have a more prolonged problem with impotence, then Cialis Once Daily could be a better option for you. It remains active in your body continuously, meaning that you can enjoy more spontaneous sex.

2.5mg dosage

The most common dosage of Cialis Once Daily is 2.5mg, which is appropriate for you if:

  • You're not taking any other medications
  • It's the first time you have taken an impotence treatment
  • You have no pre-existing medical conditions

Some of the benefits of taking 2.5mg Cialis are:

  • You can increased your dosage if it doesn't work well for you
  • It can be taken on a daily basis for continuous treatment for impotence

5mg dosage

The 5mg Cialis Once Daily dosage is the strongest dosage available in the daily range and will be prescribed to you if:

  • You don't find the 2.5mg option to be effective enough
  • You want a continuous daily treatment for impotence

Some of the benefits of taking 5mg Cialis are:

  • It can be taken daily
  • It allows you the freedom to have sex when you want

Taking Cialis or Cialis Once Daily?

A 10mg or 20mg Cialis dosage should not be taken more than once every 24 hours. If you think you will be in a position to take it more than twice a week, the daily option is potentially more suitable for you. These Cialis dosages are known as 'as needed' doses, and are only taken when you expect to have sexual intercourse and want to perform.

Cialis Once Daily, however, should be taken at the same time each day and the daily dose should not be exceeded. It should also not be taken in conjunction with any other impotence medications or regular Cialis, as this may increase your risk of experiencing side effects.

How do I take Cialis?

A single tablet should be taken at least 30 minutes prior to sexual intercourse. Alternatively, you can take Cialis much earlier and still experience the effects, as it stays in the system for up to 36 hours.

Our doctors will usually recommend the lower 10mg dosage to first-time users of this treatment. If, while taking the lower dose, you do not experience the desired results but have no side effects, the higher dose may be prescribed to you.

In regards to diet, this medication interacts with grapefruit juice. Avoid grapefruit juice while using this treatment because it contains a chemical that increases the level of tadalafil in your bloodstream, making side effects more likely to occur. Moreover, do not drink excessive amounts of alcohol while taking Cialis as this may increase the risk of side effects. If this treatment is taken with alcohol, it could cause a drop in blood pressure that may make you feel dizzy. Moreover, alcohol may impair sexual performance.

When taking any prescription treatment, you need to be aware that it may interfere with your capability to drive or handle machinery safely. Since Cialis could affect your ability to do either of these things, you need to assess how these tablets affect you before determining whether you are safe to handle machinery or drive a vehicle. Contact your doctor if have any questions regarding this information.

What side effects does Cialis cause?

Most men who use the treatment do so without it causing any ill effects; however, as it's a prescription medication, it may carry some risk of side effects. Cialis side effects are not necessarily harmful or dangerous, and do not affect everyone who takes the treatment.

Neurological

Headaches and dizziness are common neurological side effects of Cialis. These are usually very mild and are not a cause for concern. Fainting is a rare side effect of this medication.

Head

Facial flushing and a stuffy nose are two common effects of this medication. Dry mouth is an uncommon side effect. A very small number of people who take this medication may experienced nosebleeds.

Cardiovascular

Cardiovascular side effects such as palpitations or an increased heart rate are uncommon but should be taken seriously if they occur. Rare cardiovascular side effects like stroke and increased blood pressure are extremely serious and will require medical attention.

Gastric

Indigestion is one of the more common side effects of Cialis. Nausea may occur, but this is less common.

Muscular

Common muscular side effects include mild back pain and muscle aches. Experiencing more significant muscle pain is far less common but may occur.

Common side effects

Some common side effects may occur when taking this medication, but these are usually quite mild and shouldn't persist. If you experience a side effect that makes you physically uncomfortable or unwell, then contact a doctor. As the active ingredient in Cialis remains active in the body for a much longer time than other impotence drugs, the side effects that persist for the duration of its active life could become uncomfortable. If this does occur, it's worth speaking to a medical professional about adjusting your current dose.
