What is tadalafil?

Tadalafil, also known by the brand name of “Cialis”, is a medicine scientifically formulated to treat erectile dysfunction, improving your ability to get and maintain an erection. It uses the same active ingredient as Cialis so it is just as effective as the branded version and it is FDA approved to treat ED.

Its an effective solution for a very common problem in men from all ages. So don’t worry if it happens to you in your twenties or your fifties. We got you covered.

How does tadalafil work?

Tadalafil widens the blood vessels that supply the penis, allowing more blood flow to the area to help you maintain a firmer erection during sexual intercourse. It’s what’s known as a PDE5 inhibitor, which helps to increase blood flow to the penis when you are aroused. Tadalafil will help you get an erection, but it will not increase your desire for sex and you must be sexually aroused for it to work. Tadalafil won’t treat any underlying physical causes of your ED.

HOW TO TAKE TADALAFIL

Tadalafil should be taken at least half an hour before sex. The tablet should be swallowed whole with some water. Tadalafil should not be taken with a meal as this can delay absorption. Small amounts of alcohol shouldn’t stop or delay tadalafil from working, but drinking large amounts of alcohol can make it more difficult to get an erection and could increase the risks of side effects. Do not take tadalafil with grapefruit or grapefruit juice as this may affect how the medicine works. Tadalafil can last up to 36 hours, do not take more than one tablet in this time. Don’t combine tadalafil with other ED meds.

HOW LONG DOES TADALAFIL LAST

Tadalafil may remain effective for up to 36 hours after taking it. But it only works if you are sexually aroused, so it will need your help. Some foreplay prior to sexual activity will do the trick. The erection will go away as normal after sex.

How safe is tadalafil?

Tadalafil is usually well tolerated. It can cause some side effects, although these tend to be mild. Common side effects include:

  • Headache
  • Facial flushing
  • Nasal congestion
  • Muscle aches
  • Arm or leg pain
  • Indigestion

If you experience loss of vision, chest pain, trouble breathing; swelling of the face or throat, or you still have an erection 4 hours after sex, seek medical advice by contacting us or your doctor.
