What is Cialis?

Cialis tablets are a treatment for erectile dysfunction, which is also known as impotence or ED. Using an ingredient called tadalafil, this medication helps you to get and maintain an erection when you’re sexually stimulated. You can take these tablets any time, unlike other erectile dysfunction treatments, so you won’t have to worry about interrupting intimate moments to make sure you’ve taken your medication. If you’re someone who wants to have sex a few times a week or more but is struggling with erectile dysfunction, Cialis could be just what you need to keep your sex life working like it should.

How to take Cialis tablets

Take one Cialis tablet at the same time every day, swallowing it with a sip of water. You can take these tablets with or without food. Do not take more than one tablet a day.

How does tadalafil work to treat erectile dysfunction?

The active ingredient in Cialis tablets is called tadalafil and it works to make it easier for you to get an erection. It relaxes the blood vessels in your penis so blood can flow into the area more easily. This helps you to get an erection when you’re engaging in foreplay and will make it easier for you to keep it during intercourse. You don’t need to worry about knowing when you’re planning on having sex, as long as you take tadalafil properly it will work to combat your erectile dysfunction at any time of the day.

Can tadalafil be used to treat anything else?

Tadalafil tablets can be used to treat a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia, which is common in men as they get older. When you have this condition, it means that your prostate gets bigger as you get older, which can make it more difficult for you to pee. Tadalafil improves blood flow in your prostate, just like it does in your penis, helping it to relax and making it easier for you to pee.

What is erectile dysfunction (impotence)?

Erectile dysfunction, or impotence, means that you cannot get or maintain an erection when you’re sexually stimulated. This can have quite the effect on your sex life, as some men find it embarrassing or worry about it happening every time they try to have sex with a partner. Erectile dysfunction is more common than most men realise, especially in men over the age of 40, and it usually isn’t anything to worry about, in fact, worrying can often make the problem worse. There are lots of reasons why you may experience impotence, with some of the most common causes including:

  • Mental health conditions, e.g. stress, anxiety, depression
  • Drinking too much alcohol
  • Feeling tired
  • High blood pressure or cholesterol
  • Hormonal problems
  • Side effects of some medications

What is the difference between tadalafil and sildenafil (Viagra)?

Sildenafil is the active ingredient in the popular erectile dysfunction treatment, Viagra, and many men use it to manage their condition. The biggest difference between sildenafil and the tadalafil in this product is that you will need to know when you’re planning on having sex when you’re taking sildenafil, as you need to take your tablet around an hour before you get down to business. This can sometimes ruin the mood if you’re the more spontaneous type and could cause problems if you’re out and about and forget to bring a tablet with you for when the mood strikes. On the other hand, tadalafil is taken once a day, at the same time every day, and will work to help you get an erection at any time, day or night. However, there is one more thing to consider, and that is how you will get hold of your treatment. Tadalafil tablets need a prescription from a medical professional before you can get them, whereas sildenafil can be bought over the counter after a quick chat with a pharmacist. If you’re unsure which would be best for you, we recommend talking it over with your doctor, they can help to point you in the right direction.

Will these tablets make me get an erection even if I don’t want one?

No, you won’t automatically get an erection after taking Cialis tablets. This treatment only works when you’re sexually stimulated, making it easier for you to get an erection during foreplay and keep it throughout intercourse with your partner. With that in mind, you shouldn’t worry about getting an erection at inappropriate times while you’re using this ED medication.

Can I take this treatment alongside my regular medication?

If you’re taking any other medication, including herbal remedies or medications obtained without a prescription, you should tell your prescriber about this during your first consultation. You should not take Cialis if you are already taking:

  • Nitrates, which are used to treat chest pain or angina
  • Riociguat, which is used to treat high blood pressure in your lungs

Make sure to tell your prescriber during your consultation if you are taking:

  • Alpha-blockers, which are used to treat high blood pressure or urinary problems associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia
  • Medicines used to treat high blood pressure
  • A 5-alpha reductase inhibitor, which is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia
  • Ketoconazole, which is used to treat fungal infections
  • Protease inhibitors, which are used to treat HIV and AIDS
  • Phenobarbital, phenytoin, and carbamazepine, which are anticonvulsants
  • Rifampicin, erythromycin, clarithromycin, or itraconazole
  • Any other erectile dysfunction treatments

Can I drink alcohol while I’m taking this medication?

You should avoid drinking alcohol while you’re taking Cialis or have erectile dysfunction issues in general. Alcohol can lower your blood pressure, making it more difficult for you to get an erection, which is why many men find that they suffer from ED after drinking. Naturally, this change in your blood pressure can reduce the effect of this medication, so you can still find it difficult to become and stay erect after drinking, even while you’re taking Cialis. Excessive drinking can also increase the chances of you feeling dizzy when you stand up while taking these tablets.

Will I be able to drive after taking tadalafil?

You can sometimes feel dizzy after taking tadalafil, but this can differ from person to person. Feeling dizzy and other side effects can affect your vision and your ability to concentrate, which can both affect your ability to drive or use heavy machinery. If you’re taking Cialis for the first time, make sure you take your first dose when you know that you don’t have to drive or use machines for a while, as this will give you the chance to see how this medication affects you. If you feel dizzy or experience any other side effects which could affect your ability to drive you should not do so until your symptoms have passed.

When should this medication not be used?

Cialis tablets are not suitable for use in those under the age of 18. This medication should not be taken by those who were assigned female at birth. Do not take Cialis if you are allergic to tadalafil or any of the other listed ingredients in this medication. You should not take Cialis if you have:

  • Have heart disease
  • Have prostate problems, including prostate cancer
  • Have sickle cell anaemia
  • Have multiple myeloma
  • Have leukaemia
  • Have any deformation of the penis
  • Have a serious liver or kidney problem
  • Have had pelvic surgery
