Have a read on for some tadalafil FAQs to help you maintain a happy, fulfilling relationship…
Can I take tadalafil every day?
Generally, it is recommended that you wait for 36 hours between doses. This allows the effects of the drug to wear off.
If you take the medication on Friday night, you should be good until Sunday morning.
However, a daily tadalafil pill is also available in the branded version Cialis.
Taking more than the recommended dose can increase the risk of side effects and adverse reactions. If you suspect a drug overdose, you should seek medical attention right away.
Are there two types of Cialis?
Technically, there are two formulations of Cialis: for daily use and for when you need it.
Cialis for daily use.
You can take this tablet daily because the strength is low enough for the effects of the tadalafil to wear off in 24 hours.
You don’t have to plan around the pill and can have sex anytime between doses.
If you take a 2.5mg or 5mg tablet once a day, you should be able to have great sex four to five days later.
Just make sure you don’t take more than one tablet per day.
Cialis for when you need it.
These tablets come in 10mg or 20mg doses and last up to 36 hours. A 20mg dose of tadalafil can work in as little as half an hour.
You can’t take these stronger pills daily. Make sure you wait 36 hours before taking the medication again to avoid side effects of tadalafil.
The recommended starting doses are 2.5mg for daily use and 10mg for on-demand dosing. These can be increased or decreased depending on your needs. You should speak to a doctor if you’re not sure.
Should I use daily or on demand?
You should use the daily tadalafil dose if you have sex three or more times a week. You might also prefer the daily dose if you like some spontaneity in your sex life.
The on-demand dose is best if you don’t need erectile dysfunction medication every time. You should also use this if you don’t have sex regularly.
The larger dose is effective for up to 36 hours, hence it’s popular nickname ‘The Weekender’.
Cialis & Tadalafil (As Needed)
Cialis works in a similar way to Viagra and is quicker acting and lasts longer. It can be taken when needed, 30 minutes before intercourse.
Description.
About Cialis.
At least one in ten men has trouble getting an erection at some time. Cialis helps men to get and maintain an erection when sexually stimulated and/or excited. The medicine relaxes the blood vessels in the penis which results in more blood flowing to the penis. It reduces the action of the natural chemical in your body that makes erections go away.
How to take it?
You should take Cialis at least 30 minutes before intercourse. Cialis remains effective for 36 hours, meaning it will be easier to keep and maintain an erection when you are sexually excited. It doesn’t matter if you take this medicine with or without food; food has no impact on its effectiveness.
This medicine will only work when you’re sexually excited. You won’t get an erection just by taking Cialis.
What dose should I take?
The recommended starting dose for Cialis is 10mg tablets. If this dose is not effective you can try 20mg tablets. A maximum of one tablet should be taken in 24 hours, however it’s not recommended to take either the 10mg or 20mg tablet every day.
For patients who anticipate sexual activity at least twice weekly, the 5mg “daily” Cialis dose is more appropriate.
Patient Information Leaflet.
Always read the patient information leaflet before commencing treatment. The Patient Information leaflets can be found here for 10mg and 20mg dosages.

Is there any reason I shouldn’t take tadalafil?
Some people report hypersensitivity to tadalafil. What might this look like? There are a few possibilities, but it could manifest itself as Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. This is a fever with a painful rash and blisters. That would kill the romance so it’s worth checking with your healthcare professional before starting treatment.
It can also react with other medications. Again, chat with your healthcare professional before taking tadalafil.
You should also be aware of the common and more serious side effects of tadalafil.
Summary.
Tadalafil is a good alternative to Viagra to if you want a more fulfilling sex life. You should wait 36 hours between doses unless you’re using the Cialis daily pill. For peace of mind, check with your doctor before starting treatment to make sure it’s suitable for you.
