Cialis and Erectile Dysfunction

Cialis (Tadalafil) is a medication used to treat erectile dysfunction. It is classed as a PDE5 inhibitor, meaning that it relaxes the blood vessels to increase blood flow. As good blood flow is required to achieve an erection, Cialis enables sufferers of erectile dysfunction to obtain and sustain an erection, adequate for sexual penetration.

Cialis vs. Cialis Daily and what dosage of Cialis should I take?

There are two types of Cialis available, Cialis Daily and standard Cialis. Cialis Daily is available in 2.5mg and 5mg doses and is intended to be taken every day. This should allow you to obtain spontaneous erections as required. Alternatively, you can take Cialis, which is available in 10mg and 20mg doses. This would suit men who have less regular sex, or who have intermittent bouts of erectile dysfunction. It is recommended that first time users take a 10mg dose of Cialis or a 2.5mg dose of Cialis Daily. If you do not find these dosages effective, you may be able to increase your dosage to 5mg of Cialis Daily or 20mg of Cialis. If after changing your dosage, you still do not experience the desired effects, you could change to a different type of erectile dysfunction medication, such as Viagra, Levitra or Spedra. If you are unsure which brand to take, you could try an ED Trial Pack to find out which treatment suits you best.

What are the side effects of Cialis (Tadalafil)?

Common side effects may include back pain, indigestion, flushing, headache, muscle pain, nausea and vomiting.

Uncommon side effects may include increased blood pressure and increased heart rate.

Other side effects are possible. Ensure you always read the patient information leaflet with any medication you take. If you experience any severe side effects, including symptoms of allergic reaction, seek emergency medical attention.

Cialis vs. Tadalafil

Tadalafil is the generic form of Cialis. The active ingredients are exactly the same, therefore the actions and effects of the drugs should be the same. Some of the inactive ingredients may be different. This usually has no noticeable effects, however if you are allergic to any of the inactive ingredients, or if you experience certain side effects, you may find these symptoms improve with the other version of the drug. In addition, due to the placebo effect, some people find that branded medications, such as Cialis are more effective than their generic counterparts. But fundamentally Cialis and Tadalafil are the same, the biggest difference is the name.
