Is Tadalafil the same as Cialis?
Yes, Tadalafil is exactly the same as Cialis. Tadalafil is the active ingredient in Cialis, and the only difference is the brand name and the cost. You will always need a prescription for Tadalafil or Cialis in the UK, so be wary of counterfeit Cialis being sold on the internet. If you’re buying ED medication online, look for the MHRA Distance-Selling Logo (like we have at Manual) to be sure you can trust the source.
How does Tadalafil (Cialis) work?
Tadalafil works by inhibiting the PDE5 enzyme, which is responsible for smooth muscle contraction within the blood vessels. Taking Tadalafil enables the blood vessels in the penis to expand, meaning that blood flow is improved in the place it matters, when you need it most. Tadalafil makes it easier to achieve firmer erections – but only when you’re also naturally aroused..
How long does Tadalafil (Cialis) last?
Tadalafil lasts for up to 36 hours – giving you a bit more spontaneity in your love life than Sildenafil (Viagra). That’s why they call Tadalafil the “weekend pill”. With its long-lasting effects, Tadalafil can be very handy for a romantic trip away – and also for men who anticipate more regular sex without wanting to pop a pill every time they want to get it on.
How long does it take for Tadalafil to work?
Tadalafil can start to work in 30 minutes, which is one of its major benefits as it can be somewhat quicker than other erectile dysfunction medications. It is also unaffected by food intake, unlike the common alternative ED drug – Sildenafil (Viagra), so this is another reason why Tadalafil is so popular. You will need to be sexually stimulated for Tadalafil to work, but don’t worry, you have plenty of time
Is Tadalafil right for me?
Tadalafil is right for you if you’re looking for more spontaneity than Sildenafil can provide, or if you’ve experienced unwanted side effects from Sildenafil. A study has shown that it is more widely tolerated than many other PDE5 enzyme inhibitors. Tadalafil may also work better for those men who didn’t see the desired effects after taking Sildenafil
Can Tadalafil tablets be split?
No. You should never split, break, crush, or chew Tadalafil tablets. Doing so could result in you receiving more or less than the stated dose. Always swallow the tablet whole.
Does Tadalafil always work?
Tadalafil won’t always work, but a 2009 study found that 85.5% of men reported improved erections (compared with 43.5% in the placebo group).
Like other ED drugs, such as Viagra, generic sildenafil, and Levitra (vardenafil), Tadalafil’s effects may be delayed if taken after a large fatty meal.
And remember, for Tadalafil to work – or any ED medication for that matter – you need sexual stimulation. Erections don’t just happen by themselves.
How much does Tadalafil cost?
The cost of Tadalafil depends on the dosage. At Manual, we offer the following:
- Standard (10mg) from £2.57/tablet (based on 10 tablets per month)
- High (20mg) from £3.07/tablet (based on 10 tablets per month)
- Daily (2.5mg) from £0.78/tablet (based on 90 tablets every 3 months)
Why is Tadalafil cheaper than Cialis?
Tadalafil is cheaper than Cialis because you’re not paying for the brand name.
Cialis is only produced by one manufacturer, Eli Lilly, giving them complete control over the price, without any competition for the brand. Because Cialis is so well-known, Eli Lilly can charge a premium for the drug.
Meanwhile, Tadalafil is made by several different manufacturers and can be sold by any licensed pharmaceutical provider. This means the market is still very competitive and has driven the price down by quite a bit.
How to buy Tadalafil online
You can buy Tadalafil online from any licensed pharmacy. Just as you would when buying it over-the-counter, you’ll need to fill out a short questionnaire to make sure it’s right for you.
For example, we’ll ask if you’re taking nitrates for chest pain/angina or riociguat for pulmonary hypertension, along with several other healthcare and lifestyle questions.
It also goes by the brand name Adcirca when used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension.
PDE5 inhibitors work by relaxing the smooth muscle in the blood vessels of your penis, increasing blood flow and therefore your chances of getting and keeping an erection.
The lower dose(2.5mg) is better for daily use, meaning you take it at the same time every day.This dosage is recommended for individuals with a more active sex life.
You can take the higher doses (10mg and 20mg) as and when needed – ideally around 30 minutes before sexual activity.
The lower dose of Tadalafil (2.5mg) should be taken once daily. If you have sex on more than three different days a week, the daily version should keep enough of the active ingredient in your system to see the results.
The standard dose (10mg) and higher dose (20mg) both work for around 36 hours and should be taken “on-demand” at least 30 minutes before sex.
We always recommend starting with the standard 10mg dose and moving up to the 20mg tablets if you don’t see the effects you want (and you don’t experience any of the side effects of Tadalafil).
That said, some men can experience mild side effects from Tadalafil. Although rare, the most common side effects include headaches, dizziness, flushing, indigestion, congestion, nausea, back pain, muscle aches, and blurred vision.
Rarer still, an unwanted, prolonged erection lasting 4 hours or more (otherwise known as priapism) and sudden hearing loss have both been reported with Tadalafil use. Serious side effects can be caused by adverse drug interactions, i.e., mixing Tadalafil with excessive alcohol, grapefruit juice, or medications containing nitrates.
Nitrates are used to treat high blood pressure, and they work by widening your blood vessels. Tadalafil does the same thing, and when combined, it can result in a serious (potentially fatal) drop in blood pressure.
Important note: If you experience any loss of vision or chest pain while taking Tadalafil, stop immediately and seek medical help.
