Why Cialis®?

ED? We've got you covered.

Cialis® is a PDE5 inhibitor authorized by Health Canada for the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction. It can be taken daily, or as needed.

The Weekend-Pill

Cialis® is the first medication of its class to last over 24 hours and has been on the market for over 20 years.

How Cialis® Works

Inhibits PDE5

Cialis® is an ED medication that works by suppressing an enzyme in the body called PDE5.

Increased blood flow

When PDE5 is suppressed, blood is able to flow more freely through the body to the penis.

Gets you hard

More blood flow to the penis results in harder, more satisfying erections once you’re sexually stimulated.

FAQs

What is Cialis® used for? <

Cialis is authorized by Health Canada for the treatment of male sexual function problems, symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia, and pulmonary arterial hypertension. For erectile dysfunction, it helps stimulate the body’s normal response to increase blood flow to the penis.

How does Cialis work? <

Cialis belongs to a group of medications called phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. This class of medication ultimately increases blood flow to the penis by preventing an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type-5 from working too quickly. By controlling the enzyme, Tadalafil helps initiate and prolong erections in men who have difficulty getting or staying erect. Tadalafil can last up to 36 hours, making it the go to “weekend” drug for erectile dysfunction.

How long does Cialis last? <

Cialis’ effectiveness has been seen to last for up to 36 hours; it begins to take effect 30-60 minutes after it is taken, and its peak effect is at 2 hours. Its long effectiveness allows you to take it well in advance making it easier to plan for sexual activity over a longer period of time.

How long does it take for Cialis to take effect? <

When Cialis is used for erectile dysfunction, it begins to work within 30-60 minutes. It then continues to work for up to 24-36 hours, with its peak effect being 2 hours after it’s taken. Cialis also must be taken before you plan on being sexually active. When taken at a lower prescribed dose (5mg) at the same time every day, Cialis increases the ability to achieve and maintain an erection under sexual stimulation (effects are seen after 4 to 5 days).

What dosage of Cialis is recommended? <

Cialis can be prescribed as needed, or once daily for ED. If taken as needed before sexual activity, with a typical starting dose of 10mg or 20 mg, a higher dose is needed than in the once daily regimen (5mg). Taking Cialis once daily will allow the medication to build up in your system, making it up to 1.6-times the daily dose. This means 5mg daily can have the same effect as taking 8mg. Both the as needed and the once daily regimens should be specific to the patients age, medical history and health conditions.

What are the side effects of Cialis? <

The most common reported side effects of Cialis include, but are not limited to, fast or irregular heartbeat, dizziness, headache, muscle aches, confusion, blurred vision, faintness, spontaneous penile erection and chills. If these side effects become persistent and/or bothersome, please contact your provider to discuss whether or not the medication should be stopped. If you start to experience rare, but serious, side effects such as prolonged painful erection for more than 4 hours (priapism), sudden vision loss, ringing in your ears, chest pain, trouble breathing or hives- please seek medical attention immediately.

Is Cialis safe for me? <

Although Cialis has been shown to be safe for most men, it may not be suitable with certain medical conditions, and sometimes it may be used only if extra care is taken. For these reasons, men with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart conditions or blood vessel disease, sickle cell anemia, leukemia, multiple myeloma, any injury or deformity of the penis, low blood pressure or angina, history of stroke or heart attack, liver or kidney problems, bleeding conditions that cause ulcers, and any eye condition causing loss of vision, may be subject to adverse reactions. Please inform our providers if you suffer from any of these conditions or if you are taking any medications (prescribed or over the counter) that may interact with Cialis.

Can I take Cialis with other medications? <

Before taking Cialis, please inform your provider if you are taking any medications that are known to interact with Cialis. Some prescription medications that interact with Cialis include alpha-blockers, other PDE5 inhibitors (sildenafil, vardenafil), oral antifungal medicines (ketoconazole, itraconazole), antibiotics (clarithromycin, erythromycin), nitrates (nitroglycerin), guanylate cyclase stimulators (riociguat) and HIV protease inhibitors (ritonavir, atazanavir sulfate, saquinavir).

What are the active and inactive ingredients in Cialis? <

Cialis contains Tadalafil as its active ingredient, which is responsible for its therapeutic effects. The tablet also comprises various nonmedicinal ingredients, which aid in the formulation and stability of the tablet. While these nonmedicinal ingredients don't have therapeutic effects, they are crucial for ensuring the drug's efficacy and shelf life. Always refer to the product label or consult with your healthcare provider for a complete list of ingredients.

How should I store Cialis? <

For optimal longevity and efficacy, Cialis tablets should be stored at room temperature, away from direct sunlight and moisture. Ensure they are kept out of reach of children and pets. Avoid storing the medication in places with extreme temperature variations, such as the bathroom or car glove compartment.

What should I do if I miss a dose? <

If you're taking Cialis on a once-daily regimen and miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it's close to the time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not double up on doses. If you're using Cialis as needed for sexual intercourse, missing a dose isn't applicable since you only take it prior to sexual activity. If you're taking it when needed, make sure not to take more than the prescribed amount in a 48-hour period.

Is there a generic version of Cialis available? <

Yes, generic drugs equivalent to Cialis, containing the same active ingredient Tadalafil, are available here at Rocky. Generics are Health Canada approved to be interchangeable with the brand name medication. They offer the same therapeutic effects but may differ in certain inactive ingredients. These generic versions are often available at a lower price point. It's crucial to obtain them from a reputable Canadian pharmacy like Rocky with great customer service or other trusted sources to ensure quality.

Can I take Cialis if I have specific medical conditions (e.g., heart disease, liver problems)? <

Individuals with certain medical conditions, especially heart disease, poor liver function, or kidney function issues, should exercise caution when taking Cialis. Combining Cialis with specific conditions or medications can lead to adverse effects, such as a significant drop in blood pressure. If you suffer from any of the following conditions, inform your physician as they could heighten your risk of experiencing an extended erection: sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia. Always consult with your health care professional to determine if Cialis is safe based on your health history and current conditions.

How is Cialis different from other erectile dysfunction medications? <

Cialis, recognized for its long duration of action, is unique among the array of erectile dysfunction treatments available. While most medication for erectile dysfunction offers a window of 4-8 hours, Cialis can remain effective for up to 36 hours. This prolonged effect has led to its nickname as the "weekend pill", providing flexibility and spontaneity for users. Additionally, Cialis can be taken as a daily dose, which is not a common practice for all ED medications. When taken daily, it is always in the system and able to aid with erections when sexually stimulated.

What precautions should I take while using Cialis? <

When using Cialis, certain precautions can ensure its safety and efficacy. Primarily, avoid excessive alcohol intake as it can amplify the risk of side effects and cause a drop in blood pressure. It's also advised to be cautious with food interactions, especially fatty foods, which might delay the drug's onset of action. Always inform your health care professional about any other medications or supplements you're taking, as certain combinations can lead to adverse effects.

Can I consume alcohol while taking Cialis? <

Moderate alcohol consumption is typically safe while on Cialis. However, excessive alcohol intake can exacerbate potential side effects, such as headaches, dizziness, or a drop in blood pressure. It's always a good practice to limit or monitor your alcohol intake when planning to engage in sexual activity after taking any medication for erectile dysfunction.

What happens if I overdose on Cialis? <

Overdosing on Cialis can lead to severe adverse effects. Symptoms might include chest pain, nausea, irregular heartbeat, and feeling light-headed or fainting. If you suspect an overdose or experience any of these symptoms, seek immediate medical attention. Always stick to the prescribed dose and consult with your healthcare provider if you feel the need for dosage adjustments. If you experience a prolonged erection for more than 4 hours, seek medical attention immediately.
