Here at Pharmacy Direct, we frequently get asked questions about a number of medications available, just like Tadalafil. To help you be more informed about this medicine, we have listed a few frequently asked questions about this specific drug and answered them in detail...
What is Tadalafil?
Tadalafil is a tablet that is used to treat forms of erectile dysfunction. As we wrote in our recent blog post , Erectile Dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is the inability to gain or maintain an erection for sexual activity or intercourse.
How long does it take to work?
After taking Tadalafil, you should experience an erection within 30 minutes. However it can take up to a full hour before the effects can be felt; so, do not take more than recommended at once. In general, Tadalafil can last up to 36 hours after first taking the tablet.
How often can I take Tadalafil?
As mentioned before, the drug can last up to 36 hours. For that reason, it is recommended to not take it more than once a day. After the 36 hours, you should wait at least 24 hours before taking the drug again.
Does Tadalafil provide stimulation?
The sexual stimulation will have to come from an external factor. If you take the tablet and do not engage in any sexual activity or intercourse, it is unlikely you will gain an erection.
What is the difference between Tadalafil, Sandoz and Cialis?
They are, effectively, the same medication. The reason why they have different names is that they are manufactured and produced by different companies. The actual ingredients are the same as well as its effects.
I’ve heard that the patent is expiring. What does this mean?
In one of our previous blog posts, we wrote about the expiration of a patent on Cialis. At first, this may seem like a negative thing, but do not fret. The patent expiration is actually more beneficial to consumers. This is because many other manufacturers can begin to produce the drug without having to pay the original brand. This, in turn, could eventually lead to lower costs. If you want to read more about the patent expiration, please click here.
Are there any side effects?
The side effects of the drug are minimal, but a healthcare professional should be consulted if symptoms are continuous and severe. They can include, a stuffy nose, hot flushes and headaches.
If there are multiple dosages available, which one is best suited for me?
The reason for the multiple dosages is because some can be used daily, whereas others can be used “on demand”. 10mg and 20mg pills are usually taken on demand. This means they are taken when needed, or when planning sexual activity. They are a higher dosage in order for the drug to be more effective. 2.5mg and 5mg pills are taken daily in order to help the individual to gain erection whenever the need, meaning the drug is always active in the system.
Can I buy Tadalafil online?
