Cialis is an oral drug for male impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction (ED). Cialis works by helping to increase blood flow into the penis during sexual stimulation. This helps you to achieve and maintain an erection.
Special patient directions come with Tadalafil. Read the directions carefully before you start using Tadalafil and each time you get a refill of your medicine.
Use Tadalafil exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not use more of it and do not use it more often than your doctor ordered. If too much is used, the chance of side effects or other problems is increased.
The dose of Tadalafil will be different for different patients. Follow your doctor’s orders or the directions on the label. The following information includes only the average doses of Tadalafil. If your dose is different, do not change it unless your doctor tells you to do so.
Adults – 10 mg as a single dose no more than once a day, taken before you think sexual activity may occur. The ability to have sexual activity may be improved up to 36 hours after taking Tadalafil when compared to placebo (sugar pill). If needed, your doctor may change your dose.
Missed dose of Cialis:
Since Cialis is used as needed, you are not likely to be on a dosing schedule.
If you take Cialis every day and you miss a dose, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, wait until then to take Cialis and skip the missed dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
Storage – To store Cialis:
Keep out of the reach of children.
Store away from heat and direct light.
Do not store in the bathroom, near the kitchen sink, or in other damp places. Heat or moisture may cause the medicine to break down.
Keep the medicine from freezing. Do not refrigerate.
Do not keep outdated medicine or medicine no longer needed. Be sure that any discarded medicine is out of the reach of children.
