Cialis – How to Use and Dosing

Home > Cialis – How to Use and Dosing

If you are struggling with the awkward condition of erectile dysfunction (ED) then taking care of this problem fast is more than likely a very big priority for you. When you are looking for a treatment for ED, you will want to consider medication that is specifically FDA approved to treat erectile dysfunction. When it comes to ED, Cialis is a leading medication and a well tolerated and very safe medication to take for ED, if you take it as directed and take it safely.

ED is defined as the inability to achieve or maintain an erection for sexual intercourse. In most cases of ED, the problem lies with blood flow. With ED, the muscles in the penis are constricted to an extent that adequate blood flow into the penis to achieve the desired erection is not possible. Thus, what Cialis does is target chemicals in the brain to release those muscles in order to allow for blood flow to continue into the penis for sexual intercourse. The beauty of Cialis is that it only works as needed, so you just take Cialis when you need to take it, and you achieve the desired result.

Because Cialis works with blood flow and your body chemistry, it is important to take it exactly as it has been prescribed for you. Further, ED is often a symptom of some underlying health condition, and you will want to discuss this symptom with your doctor before you take Cialis. You may need further testing to see what issues are creating enough blood flow problems to cause your ED.

Cialis is an FDA approved medication for ED and it comes in a variety of doses. Cialis comes in 2.5 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg, and 20 mg doses. Most patients start off with dosing of 10 mg, as this dose seems to be the most effective for most men, regardless of their underlying medical condition. If 10 mg does not work for you, you may need to upgrade your Cialis dose. Do not upgrade your dose of Cialis without doing so under a doctor's care.

Your Cialis dose is only taken as needed, and should be swallowed whole with a glass of water approximately 30 minutes before sexual activity. Cialis does work fast and lasts long and its effects can be seen within 15 to 30 minutes. Some men report still being able to get an erection within 36 hours of taking their Cialis dose. Cialis should be stored at room temperature away from children in its original container and kept away from heat or humidity, and thus should not be stored in the bathroom.
