How Does Cialis Work?

Prof. Claus Schillingmer

The active ingredient in Cialis is called tadalalafil. In fact, sometimes Cialis is marketed under this name. Essentially, Cialis is able to treat ED by maintaining cGMP levels in the smooth muscle cells in the penis. In this case, cGMP causes the penile muscles to relax, which in turn allows for blood to flow to the penis, causing an erection. Due to Cialis, dilation of the arteries can also occur in the penis. The outcome of this process is an easier and increased flow of blood into the penis, which makes it easier to get an erection. Cialis can also cause the erectile tissue to relax and fill up with blood, which also results in an erection. The drug has no effect on sex arousal; it just makes it possible to have an erection after sexual arousal.


What is the Difference between Viagra and Tadacip?

Prof. Claus Schillingmer

Basically, both Viagra and Tadacip are ED medications. They both promote blood flow to the penis, which enables a man to have an erection and even hold it longer than would typically be the case. The main difference between the two medications is that Tadacip makes it possible to have a lot more erections on a single dose than Viagra would. This is because Tadacip has a much longer half-life. Tadacip has a 17-hour half life, which makes Viagra pale in comparison with its 4-hour half life. In fact, this drug is informally known as “the weekend pill” because its erection inducing effects can last for up to 36 hours, Viagra only lasts for about 4 to 6 hours. Additionally, unlike Viagra, the effectiveness of Tadacip is not hampered by taking a meal, at least not as much as Viagra is.


Can Women Take Cialis?

Prof. Claus Schillingmer

At the moment, Cialis is not approved to be used by women. However, although Cialis can do nothing for a woman’s sex drive, just as in men, some women have been known to take the drug to improve their ability to attain an orgasm. This is usually the case whereby the woman is having problems reaching sexual climax because she is also using antidepressants. But as mentioned, the use of Cialis in this manner is not FDA-approved.


Does Cialis Lower Blood Pressure?

Prof. Claus Schillingmer

Yes, Cialis has been linked to a reduction in blood pressure. As a matter of fact, this is one of its main side effects, and men who take it can experience symptoms such as dizziness due to the reduction in their blood pressure after taking Cialis. This is also why this drug is not recommended for men who are suffering from low blood pressure or have recently experienced a stroke or heart attack, since it can exacerbate these health conditions to life-threatening levels. On the other hand, if you suffer from high blood pressure, this Cialis side effect would be an upside for you.


Is Cialis Covered by Insurance?

Prof. Claus Schillingmer

Some health insurance providers offer coverage for Cialis for daily use, but others don't. However, as an ED treatment, Cialis is not covered by Medicare insurance. Furthermore, the health insurance companies that provide coverage may change their policy on this drug from time to time. So, if you are a regular Cialis user, you should check from time to time to see where your insurance company stands with regard to coverage for the use of this drug; some companies are known to change their policies from time to time.


What is the Relationship between Cialis and BPH?

Prof. Claus Schillingmer

In addition to being an ED treatment, Cialis can also be taken for BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia), which is characterized by an enlarged prostate. Actually, Cialis has been approved for treatment of BPH and its symptoms due to its high effectiveness in dealing with this problem. About a quarter of all men over the age of 80 suffer from BPH, so Cialis is a very helpful treatment to many BPH sufferers. As a BPH medication, the recommended Cialis dosage is usually 5 mg, and it should be taken at about the same time every day and no more than a single dose every 24 hours. That said; missing a dose should not lead you to take two doses to compensate for the one you skipped. You should take a dose as soon as you remember, and then stick to the 24-hour rule going forward.


What is the Recommended Cialis Dosage for ED Treatment?

Prof. Claus Schillingmer

Cialis is available in dosages of 2.5, 5, 10 and 20 milligrams. The daily recommended dosage for Cialis for ED is 10 milligrams. However, individual reactions vary, and you might need to adjust it upwards to 20 mg or downwards to 5 mg depending on how well it works and how comfortably your body tolerates it. Basically, it is all about finding a balance between side effects and the intended ED improvement effects. If a higher dose causes too many serious side effects, the dose is adjusted downwards. On the other hand, if the initial dosage fails to achieve the expected ED benefits, it can be adjusted upwards, as long as you are not already experiencing serious side effects.


What Are The Side Effects Of Tadacip?

Prof. Claus Schillingmer

Cialis side effects include loss of blood pressure, although this is more common among people who are also taking nitrates in addition to Tadacip. Other side effects include dizziness, fainting and even stroke, but these effects are usually caused by the loss of blood pressure. Some people can also experience indigestion, back pain, muscle aches, headaches, and even a runny nose. Serious side effects include sudden hearing loss, irregular heart beats, and vision impairment. Less serious side effects include “priapism”, or an erection that will not go away. Tadacip has also been known to cause acid reflux, flushing, memory problems, and even constipation. People using medications that have nitrate content, as well as people suffering from some particular health conditions can experience more pronounced Tadacip side effects. However, if you happen to experience any serious Tadacip side effects, you should call your doctor immediately.


How Long Does Cialis Last?

Dr. Jelly Borken

The effects of Cialis are known to last anywhere between 24 hours and 36 hours, which is why you are advised not to take more than a dose of this medication every 24 hours to avoid overdosing. Most other ED medications last just a couple of hours. For instance, the effects of Viagra and Levitra can die off in just 4 hours. In fact, Cialis is the longest lasting ED medication currently in the market. Actually, when taken as a daily medication, it can offer its erection inducing benefits whenever they are needed , all thanks to its long half-life.


How Much Does Cialis Cost?

Dr. Jelly Borken

In general, the price for Cialis varies from pharmacy to pharmacy. Basically, Cialis is sold in packages of about 20, 30, 60 and 90 pills and so forth. The price also varies according to the strength of the pills, for instance, a package of 5 mg pills will be cheaper than a package of 10 mg pills. For a month's supply of 10 mg Cialis (or 30 pills) you can expect to pay around $60. In some pharmacies, it might be more expensive. However, for FDA-approved Cialis, which has been certified for use as an ED medication, be ready to pay about $40 dollars a pill or thereabouts.


How Fast Does Tadacip Work?

Dr. Jelly Borken

Generally speaking, Tadacip should deliver results within an hour. Some men are able to get results within 20 to 30 minutes, while others might even need an hour or more to see any results. There are also those who have to take it a couple of hours prior to sex in order to enjoy its benefits. So, you will have to find out what time works out best for you. On the other hand, if you are taking Tadacip as a daily dosage, you should not have to worry about its response time since you will always ready to enjoy its benefits because of its long half-life. Besides, you cannot have more than a dose in less than 24 hours.


When Should Cialis be Taken for Best Results?

Dr. Jelly Borken

When treating ED, Cialis should be taken at whatever time is most suitable for you. As mentioned above, this period varies from person to person. For some, it could be less than an hour before intercourse, but for others, it may be a little longer. However, first time users might need some adjusting time before the drug proves effective as an ED cure. In general, you are supposed to try it for seven days before completely giving up and considering other options. However, most people get the desired results in just 2 to 5 days. Just keep in mind not to take more than a single dose every 24 hours. Also, if you do not like the few hours waiting time needed for the drug to get to work, you can adhere to a daily dosage routine; that way, you will be ready to perform any time you need to.


Does Cialis Make you last longer?

Dr. Jelly Borken

Yes, Cialis can make you last longer, but its primary goal is to help you have an erection much more easily. In fact, the ability to make men hold their erections longer is one of the reasons it is so popular. However, an erection that last more than four hours should be brought to the attention of a health professional as it could signify the beginning of much more serious side effects that may require drastic medical interventions, including surgery.


How Much Does Cialis Cost Per Pill?

Dr. Jelly Borken

FDA-approved Cialis costs around $40 for a single 10 mg pill. Generic Cialis sold by some pharmacies, which is often not FDA approved, can cost as low as under $2 a pill. Still, the price per pill depends on its strength. Purchasing a large batch of pills can also significantly reduce the price per pill due to the accompanying discount. However, the price per pill for the FDA-approved version is more stable. However, the prices for other forms of Cialis can vary widely. Sometimes, the average price a pill can be as high as $20, but this usually depends on where you are buying it from.


How Much Cialis Should I Take?

Dr. Jelly Borken

You should take a single dose of Cialis every 24 hours. Even if you do not get the desired results, you should not violate this rule. Basically, the necessary dosage varies from person to person, but a doctor should be involved in determining the appropriate dosage for you. If an initial dose results in any undesired results, it has to be adjusted appropriately until it proves effective for your ED. Some men even need as much as three or four times what other men need. This is because while some people will respond perfectly to a 2.5 mg dose of Cialis, others will need a 20 mg daily dose to overcome their ED.

How Long Does Cialis Stay in Your System?

Dr. Jelly Borken

Cialis remains active in your body for between 24 hours and 36 hours after taking it. However, there are conditions that might keep it in your body for longer than 36 hours. For instance, if you have kidney and liver problems, the drug might last longer in your body. The kidney and the liver are where drugs are often broken down. This is why people with kidney or liver problems should generally avoid using Cialis, since it can have prolonged effects on the body, which would also mean having prolonged side effects. Furthermore, those taking it on a daily basis while still having liver and kidney problems can experience an accumulation of the drug in the body, which can be quite dangerous.


Do You Need A Prescription For Tadacip?

Dr. Jelly Borken

Yes, you will need a prescription to take Tadacip, as is the case with other erectile dysfunction medications. The drug has serious potential interactions with other medications you might be taking, which makes it critical to check with your doctor first so that you can be informed whether you are a viable candidate for Tadacip. A doctor will also more accurately determine whether any pre-existing medical conditions such as heart disease, kidney problems, or even allergies can make the drug cause you any unexpected effects as you take it. There are pharmacies that will sell you the drug without a prescription, but this is very risky unless your doctor has already said your health permits you to make use of this ED drug.
