Basic Facts about Cialis

It is no news that the Cialis (tadalafil) prescription erectile dysfunction drug has been named “the weekend pill.” It also has been known as the drug that lasts 36 hours.

This is to an advantage to many couples because it provides them with much more changes to have fun than when using a drug that lasts four hours. It makes for more chances of spontaneous play without the inconvenience of forgetting to take the pill.

Basic Cialis Info

Besides knowing that Cialis lasts 36 hours, it also helps to learn a few more facts about this drug. It especially helps to understand dosage and usage information. It also would benefit you to understand the risk of using it and cases in which Cialis may not be administered. With that in mind here are some basic precautionary facts and general Cialis info:

IMPORTANT-Cialis is a PDE5 inhibitor just like Viagra, Levitra, and others. Therefore, it should NOT be used with any organic nitrate drugs and certain other heart medications. The end result could be heart attack or death in the event a person’s blood pressure would be too low.

Sometimes Cialis has been used to treat cardio pulmonary hypertension. Therefore, using it would be like “killing two birds with one stone” meaning that it does two jobs. It helps correct circulation and cardiovascular problems that cause impotence.

The proper window of time to wait to take Cialis (Tadalafil) would be 48 hours from the last time a nitrite medication was taken. The proper window of time to wait to take Tadalafil would also be after 24 hours of taking the previous dosage, or after 24 hours of taking Viagra or other ED drug.

Even though Cialis could be taken approximately once a day, it is best to wait 36 hours before taking a new pill. You should really consult your doctor though to get the best advice regarding the use of this medication. Cialis is not a medication that is right for everyone.

Only a doctor can help a man know if he should use it or not.

Here are some examples of cases in which tadalafil should not be used:

  • If you develop some type of allergy to this drug-either the brand name or the generic as they are the same thing
  • If you have the following heart problems: chest pain, racing or irregular heartbeat, heart attacks (usually within the past 6 to 12 months but consult your doctor even if it has been years)
  • If you have been tested as a person who has had too high or too low of blood pressure
  • If you have ever had a stroke, or if you have had liver or kidney problems
  • If you have any rare eye disease or vision problems (especially NAION)
  • If you have Peyronie’s disease or other penis deformation
  • If you experience a painful erection and/or it lasts longer than four hours
  • In the event you have some type of blood disorder (i.e. sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia)
