Generic Cialis is in a class of drugs called phosphodiesterase inhibitors. FDA approved Generic Cialis (Tadalafil) in 2003 for the treatment of men suffering from erectile dysfunction. 

Cialis is a product developed by Eli Lilly and ICOS and it is a trade name of the product called Tadalafil launched in the market in 2003. Cialis inhibits an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5 that releases Nitric Oxide from nerve endings and endothelium causing relaxation of smooth muscle and hence, penile erection.

Dosage Instruction

  • The common starting dose of Cialis for once daily use is 2.5 mg, taken at approximately the same time every day, without regard to timing of sexual activity.
  • The Cialis dose for once daily use may be increased to 5 mg, based on individual efficacy and tolerability.

However the quantity of dosage varies according to the physical condition of the patient. It also depends on whether the patient is suffering from other diseases, because Cialis may have adverse reaction to other drugs.

 

Precaution

 

Prior to taking Cialis (tadalafil), the patient must inform the doctor if he has:

  • Kidney disease or kidney failure
  • Liver disease or liver failure
  • Unexplained rash
  • Blurred vision
  • Heart disease, for instance angina, congestive heart failure, or irregular heartbeats

The patient should not take alcohol in excess as this may increase chances of dizziness or lowering your blood pressure. The drug does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. Therefore the patient should not depend on it to escape from sexual diseases. The patient must not take nitrates which are used for chest or heart problems. Because the blend of ingredients of Cialis and nitrates can cause serious side effects like a sudden, unsafe drop in blood pressure.

 

Side Effects

 

The most common side effects are headache and upset stomach. Backache and muscle ache were also reported, sometimes with delayed onset.
