TadalafilCialis is the brand name of the drug tadalafil that is used in men with sexual impotence, or ED (erectile dysfunction). A pill of Cialis lasts for 36 hours, this is why it is nicknamed the ”Weekend Pill”. If you have only every heard about Viagra, it is probably because it was the first impotence drug ever, and the marketing campaigns around it were hysterical. Up to date, the name of Viagra is synonymous with sexual vigor.

Well, Cialis is something very similar to Viagra. There is, however, a couple of things that make them essentially different, and Cialis wins, hands down. It might be less recognized than Viagra. What is Cialis? sounds like a legitimate question, but no grown up is likely to ask the same question about Viagra. But pay attention to this: 12 out of 12 patients prefer Cialis. In terms of user satisfaction score, it is a total showdown. Women particularly prefer for their partners to take Cialis, because it favors spontaneity. With Cialis, you know that you can be ready for sex with minimal stimulation, allowing for romance to take over. Let us look into other  reasons behind this huge popularity of Cialis.

Does Cialis give you a hard on?

Many believe that ED pills make you horny from the get go; this is not so. How does Cialis work then? The principle is actually quite similar to that of Viagra. By blocking a buildup of certain substances, Cialis helps the blood vessels in the penis to expand and get filled with blood to the max. The substance that Cialis affects is called phosphodiesterase type 5, or PDE5 for short, and therefore Cialis, Viagra and other drugs in their class are called PDE5 inhibitors.

What does Cialis do, exactly, for your sex life? Now, the crucial moment here is that in order for Cialis to help you develop an erection, a series of other chemical events should happen. You need to be properly aroused, so that the neurotransmittants from your brain signal to your penis that it is time to get active. In ED patients, the blood vessels in the penis remain rigid and incapable of conducting the right amount of blood required for the sufficient hardness. And this is exactly where Cialis steps in, eliminating the problem.

The bottom line is, erection does not occur following the use of a pill; but the pill makes it possible for erection to take place following sexual stimulation. How long does Cialis last? Its health effect stays around for the incredible 36 hours, reaching its peak effectiveness between 60 and 120 minutes after you take the pill. But the first benefits of the drug are perceived already after 30 minutes.

Alongside with performing its main function, Cialis helps you improve sexual performance in a number of not so direct ways:

  • Providing a certainty in your erectile hardness, the drug fights performance anxiety, which helps men suffering from premature ejaculation caused by excessive nervousness;
  • Lasting for more than a day, it helps you to achieve multiple erections with minimal recovery time in between – talk about impressing and satisfying your partner with flying colors!
  • Slightly decreasing penile sensitivity, which also contributes to lasting longer;
  • Tadalafil prevents and improves prostate conditions, as well as pulmonary arterial hypertension;
  • Taken in smaller doses every day, Cialis helps to completely cure ED, and chances are, your sexual function will be back to healthy even without drugs in not so distant future!

Two dosing methods of Cialis

Another point in favor of Cialis is that it can be taken when needed – or on daily basis in smaller doses as a therapy course. The benefits of Cialis Daily 2.5mg - 5mg include:

  • Taking planning out of the equation;
  • More discreet use of the pill – your partner doesn’t need to know;
  • Improved ejaculatory time (you will last longer during sex!);
  • Helps to reach orgasm in men with ejaculatory difficulty;
  • Has fewer side effects (but may also have lesser efficacy).

Specialists concluded that after a course of 12 weeks Cialis Daily will give you measurable results in sexual health.

Which method should you choose? You should follow the advice of your doctor of course, but a patient too has his say in the matter. Consider the following aspects:

  1. How often do you have sex? If the answer is twice a week and more, Cialis Daily might be worth its salt;
  2. How often do you have drinks? If you are not certain you can abstain from alcohol while taking Cialis, daily dosing might cause a severe and dangerous drop in your blood pressure; nondaily Cialis is recommended;
  3. How important is the price factor for you? Committing to chronical tadalafil use will entail regular (costly!) refills. Check your insurance coverage or read here on how to get help paying for Cialis.

Is Cialis bad for your heart?

Cialis is a safe medication with few and controllable side effects, but like any other drug, it has its contraindications. Thus, in a healthy individual it will not do any cardiac damage. According to this research, Cialis will even help prevent and treat certain heart conditions. In men with heart disease of any kind, however, the use of tadalafil can be dangerous, hence the contraindications. And it goes without saying that if your heart condition makes any physical activity, including sex, risky, you should not take Cialis.

heart healthThere are also certain other health problems that can prevent you from using Cialis, they are:

  • Liver, kidney, stomach or duodenum disease;
  • Degenerative eye diseases, including NAION and retinitis pigmentosa;
  • Blood vessel conditions: leukemia, sickle cell disease, myeloma, haemorrhages of any kind;
  • Penile scarring and deformity, as well as predisposition to abnormally lasting or painful erections (Peyronie’s disease, priapism);
  • Problems with blood pressure.

You should have a proper health checkup before taking Cialis. The drug cannot be taken with certain other medications (nitrates, HIV/AIDS drugs, antifungal drugs, other ED drugs, etc.). Remember that only responsible use of Cialis will translate into maximal health benefits.
