Who needs Cialis?
Cialis is an ED drug approved for use by adults age 18 and above. Erectile dysfunction is a common condition that occurs when a man experiences problems trying to achieve and maintain an erection. The condition is common among men in the middle ages and those who are older. Besides erectile dysfunction, Cialis can also be used to treat a host of blood conditions, including Benign Prostatic Hypertension (BPH) and pulmonary arterial hypertension. The latter is treated using a form of Cialis that trades under the Adcirca brand name.
In spite of the pharmacological semblance, Cialis and Adcirca cannot be used interchangeably due to safety reasons. Benign prostatic hyperplasia is a serious condition that causes the prostate gland to enlarge thereby causing urination difficulties. Cialis is sold in four different dosages; 2.5mg, 5mg, 10mg and 20mg. However, the recommended starting dose is 10mg tablet. This initial dose is suitable for men experiencing erection difficulties induced by stress or anxiety. If the dosage is ineffective, the doctor may recommend the higher 20mg tablet.
The Cialis 10mg and 20mg are usually effective for about 36 hours. Small dosages like 2.5mg and 5mg are generally safe to take daily, but this will depend on your medical condition and the doctor’s prescription. The effects of the drug normally kick start about 30 minutes after use. Cialis can be taken orally in the form of a plain tablet before or after meals. The doctor usually decides the right dosage based on critical factors like the patient’s age, medical history, the acuteness of the impotency and potential drug interactions among other ascribed reasons.
The effectiveness of the medication may vary from one person to the other. If you skip a dose, you can always take it when the next opportunity arrives. Taking a double dose to compensate for the lost time is strictly prohibited as this could possibly lead to serious side effects. If you have had a Cialis overdose or are experiencing unexpected side effects call 911 immediately. Alternatively, you can call the poison control center nearest to you for quick medical attention and professional guidance. The Cialis tablet should be swallowed whole and not broken.
For proper upkeep, the drug should be stored under room temperature between (15C/59F to 30C/86F), away from heat and enervating moisture. The drugs should also be kept away from children and pet. If you have expired drugs and don’t know how to dispose them off, simply speak to your local pharmacist. Always take time to read the fine print enclosed in your package for more clarity. People with heart conditions should consult a doctor before taking Cialis. Remember, Cialis like all the other medications has potential for adverse effects.
