Cialis Dosage

Cialis was approved by the FDA in 2002 as a medication that can be used to help men of various ages who are suffering from erectile dysfunction. The main drug in Cialis, Tadalafil, is a PDE5 enzyme inhibitor. Because PDE5 is inhibited, cGMP, what is responsible for expanding blood vessels, is able to do its function properly and allow blood to flow freely to the penis, stimulation an erection that can last throughout the duration of sexual activity. Cialis also decreases emotions of stress, anxiety, and depression associated with impotence. Men will notice that the boost of self esteem and self confidence Cialis gives them while in the bathroom will translate to all other aspects of their life.

Cialis is one of the most popular ED medications currently available on the market, because unlike its main competition, Levitra and Viagra, it does not have to be taken on an ongoing and daily basis. All medical professionals caution that ED medications should only be taken once within a 24 hour period. This is to decrease the likelihood of more severe side effects, including priapism, chest pain, drastic blood pressure changes, irregular breathing, and heart palpitations. This means with Levitra and Viagra, only taken once a day, you only have four to six hours in that day to engage in sexual activity – this leaves no room for being spontaneous because everything needs to be planned and prearranged.

This is not the case for Cialis. Cialis lasts in a man’s system for up to 36 hours. You do not have to plan a “time for sexual activity” with Cialis because the time frame and window of opportunity are much larger. With Cialis, you can decide when you want to have sex – you can be impulsive! And because it lasts for 36 hours, men do not have to take it on an ongoing basis. This is why it is recommended to men who do not want to remember to take a pill every day. Nicknamed “the weekend warrior,” a man can pop a Cialis on Friday night and be set to go until Sunday morning. Never worry again about planning the four to six hours when you can have sex when you can have a whole day to decide with Cialis!
