Like all medication, Cialis can have side effects but these have all been carefully measured, assessed and controlled. As long as you take only Cialis that has been prescribed by your doctor, if you do suffer side effects, they should not be dangerous.
Cialis is a potent drug and similar to Viagra and Levitra. Its affect can last up to 36 hours so always use it wisely and carefully, applying common sense at all times.
What exactly is Cialis?
Cialis contains something called Tadalafil and is used on a regular basis to treat ED (erectile dysfunction) in men. Because it lasts longer than other similar drugs, your doctor will only prescribe it if he feels that you need the stronger effect and if it fits in with your lifestyle and relationship with your partner. In simple terms, Cialis acts by stimulating the blood supply to the penis but only when you are sexually aroused. It mimics the reaction that your body would normally carry out automatically, so it is not making your body act in an unnatural way.
It has been approved after exhaustive testing by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
Does it take long to work?
The drug usually needs about 30 minutes to become active, so your doctor will advise you to take it a little time ahead of when you are planning sexual activity. It is available in doses of 5m, 10mg and 20mg and he will decide which is the most suitable strength for you. Also be aware that you should only take Cialis once a day, particularly in view of its long lasting effect. Because it can stay in the system for up to 36hrs, you may even find that it will last for several days, meaning that you will not need to take it each day. The best thing to do is to take it, see how it works with you and then adjust the dosage accordingly. If one tablet can enable you to take part in sexual intercourse for as long as 36 hrs., you may be able to spread out the dosage for longer than once a day.
But what if I am taking Cialis because I have a serious medical condition?
This is why seeing your doctor is so essential. He will look at any other drugs that you are taking and administer the dosage that is safe for you. For example, if you have kidney problems, a liver condition or even prostate troubles, he will take all of this into account before prescribing you with Cialis or any similar drug. Cialis is a powerful drug and needs to be administered and treated with respect. As long as you take it in accordance with instructions and do not mix it with alcohol, you should not experience any serious side effects.
