Cialis 5mg

Cialis is an oral medication which males employ to treat the effects of erectile dysfunction (ED). Its active ingredient is Tadalafil; a vasodilator which helps to expand blood vessels and to increase blood flow to the penis. It was originally approved for use in 2003 and this medication is available in a number of different dosages.

When should Cialis 5mg be used?

Cialis is generally prescribed by a physician in order to treat impotence and erectile dysfunction (sometimes known as benign prostatic hyperplasia). There are rare times when higher doses may be used to address pulmonary hypertension. However, the majority of males will employ this medication to achieve and main an erection during intercourse. ED can be caused by a number of different conditions such as old age, diabetes, depression, or anxiety. The main intention of Cialis 5mg is to counteract such situations by allowing more blood to enter the penis. Potential users should always seek the advice of a medical professional when treating impotence, as it is important to rule out other conditions in advance.

What is the price of Cialis 5mg?

It is important to note that the Cialis 5mg price will depend upon the vendor as well as if any prescription-related discounts are available. Cialis is generally available in 28-tablet, 56-tablet and 84-tablet volumes with a pricing structure to match. While online vendors may offer reduced pricing packages, it is critical to consult with a physician as both the efficacy and even the safety of Cialis pills can be risked when derived from unknown sources.

Is 10mg or 5mg of Cialis more appropriate?

There are a number of different incremental dosages available. These are 2.5 milligrams, 5 milligrams and 10 milligrams (doses of 20 milligrams are occasionally used to treat pulmonary hypertension). The efficacy of Cialis will depend upon the individual in question. Some factors which can impact the results include body weight, age, overall health, mental state, and diet. It is also important to point out that the individual will need to be sexually aroused in order to achieve an erection when taking Cialis. The average dose of Cialis is 10 milligrams every 24 hours.

How long does it take for Cialis 5mg to work and how long does it last?

Unlike other medications such as Viagra, the effects of Cialis will often last between 20 and 36 hours; hence the nickname "the weekend pill" due to the fact that one might not need to be taken every day. One oral dose of Cialis 5mg will begin to take effect anywhere between 30 minutes and one hour after it has been taken. Please note that this time may vary slightly between individuals.

How to take Cialis 5mg

Cialis should be taken orally and swallowed with a sip of water as soon as a sexual encounter is anticipated in the near future. Although this medication can be taken with or without food, some may find that the effects of Cialis are stronger on an empty stomach. If nausea or stomach cramps are experienced, however, it is recommended that the capsule should be taken with a meal or snack. Due to the long-lasting nature of Cialis, individuals should never take more than one pill within any 24-hour period. If so, a condition known as priapism may develop (a painful erection that will not abate). The pills should never be split in half or chewed - they need to be taken as a whole dosage.

Safety suggestions and precautions

Much like other oral vasodilators, there are a number of potential side effects associated with Tadalafil. The most common and transient can include:

  • Headache

  • Stomach cramps

  • Lower back pain

  • Nasal congestion

  • Feelings of flushed skin


The majority of these conditions tend to be mild (if at all present). Having said this, there are rare instances (fewer than two per cent of the population) when more severe symptoms may appear. These include:

  • Facial oedema

  • Angina or heart pains

  • Acid reflux disease

  • Stroke

  • Tinnitus

The severity and frequency of the symptoms mentioned above tend to increase with the size of the dosage. This is why it may be prudent to begin taking 2.5 or 5 milligrams to note the effects before increasing the dosage to 10 milligrams.
