Cialis 120 mg

 What is Cialis?

Cialis contains the active substance tadalafil which belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors. Following sexual stimulation Cialis works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax, allowing the flow of blood into your penis. The result of this is improved erectile function. Cialis is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) and symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy (enlarged prostate). Another brand of tadalafil is Adcirca, which is used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension and improve exercise capacity in men and women. Do not take Cialis while also taking Adcirca, unless your doctor tells you to.

 

Important information

Do not take Cialis if you are also using a nitrate drug for chest pain or heart problems, including nitroglycerin, isosorbide dinitrate, isosorbide mononitrate, and some recreational drugs such as “poppers”. Taking tadalafil with a nitrate medicine can cause a sudden and serious decrease in blood pressure.

Some medicines can cause unwanted or dangerous effects when used with Cialis. Tell your doctor about all your current medicines, especially riociguat (Adempas).

Contact your doctor or seek emergency medical attention if your erection is painful or lasts longer than 4 hours. A prolonged erection (priapism) can damage the penis.

Get medical help at once if you have nausea, chest pain, or dizziness during sex.

Stop using Cialis and get emergency medical help if you have sudden vision loss.

 

Before taking this medicine

  • You should not take Cialis if you are allergic to tadalafil.

 

  • Taking Cialis with certain other medicines can cause a sudden and serious decrease in blood pressure. Do not take this medicine if you also use:

 

  • riociguat (to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension); or

 

  • a nitrate drug (for chest pain or heart problems) such as nitroglycerin, isosorbide dinitrate, isosorbide mononitrate, or recreational drugs such as amyl nitrate or nitrite “poppers”.

 

  • Some tadalafil can remain in your bloodstream for 2 or more days after each dose you take (longer if you have liver or kidney disease). Avoid nitrate use during this time.

 

To make sure this Cialis is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have ever had:

 

  • heart disease or heart rhythm problems;

 

  • a heart attack or stroke;

 

  • angina (chest pain), high or low blood pressure;

 

  • pulmonary hypertension (unless you are taking tadalafil for this);

 

  • a condition called pulmonary veno-occlusive disease (narrowing of the veins that carry blood from the lungs to the heart);

 

  • liver or kidney disease (or if you are on dialysis);

 

  • vision loss, or retinitis pigmentosa (an inherited condition of the eye);

 

  • a bleeding disorder;

 

  • a blood cell disorder such as sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia;

 

  • a physical deformity of the penis (such as Peyronie’s disease), or an erection lasting longer than 4 hours;

 

  • a stomach ulcer; or

 

  • health problems that make sexual activity unsafe.

 

Sudden vision loss has occurred in a small number of people taking medicines like tadalafil (Viagra or others). Most of these people already had certain eye problems or had high cholesterol, diabetes, coronary artery disease, a history of smoking, or were over 50 years old). It is not clear whether the medicine was the actual cause of vision loss.

Cialis is not expected to harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

It is not known whether tadalafil passes into breast milk or if it could affect the nursing baby. Tell your doctor if you are breast-feeding.

Cialis is not approved for use by anyone younger than 18 years old.

 

How should I take Cialis?

Cialis is usually taken only once per day. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

 

  • Cialis can be taken with or without food.

 

  • Do not break or split a tablet. Swallow it whole.

 

  • For erectile dysfunction, take Cialis just before sexual activity but not more than once per day. The prolonged half-life of tadalafil lends itself well to this dosing regimen and conveys the advantage of separating medication from sexual interactions; lower dose therapy also carries the theoretical benefit of lower incidence of side effects.

 

  • Cialis can help achieve an erection when sexual stimulation occurs. An erection will not occur just by taking a pill. Follow your doctor’s instructions.

 

  • Do not take Cialis for erectile dysfunction if you are taking Adcirca for pulmonary arterial hypertension.

 

Does Cialis 120 mg Exist?

You can get Cialis in four different doses: 2.5mg: small white pills with ‘2.5mg’ written on them. 5mg: small light orange pills with ‘5mg’ written on them. 10mg: large light orange pills with ’10mg’ written on them. Cialis 10 mg and 20 mg is intended for use prior to anticipated sexual activity and is not recommended for continuous daily use.

It is important to note that Cialis does not work if there is no sexual stimulation. You and your partner will need to engage in foreplay, just as you would if you were not taking a medicine for erectile dysfunction.

Drinking alcohol may affect your ability to get an erection and may temporarily lower your blood pressure. If you have taken or are planning to take CIALIS, avoid excessive drinking (blood alcohol level of 0.08 % or greater), since this may increase the risk of dizziness when standing up. Cialis 120mg  does not exist.

 

What happens if I miss a dose?

As Cialis is used as needed, you are not likely to be on a dosing schedule.

 

What happens if I overdose?

Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222.

 

What should I avoid while taking Cialis?

Drinking alcohol with this medicine can cause side effects. Grapefruit and grapefruit juice may interact with tadalafil and lead to unwanted side effects. Avoid the use of grapefruit products while taking this medicine.
