More Information

What is Cialis?

Cialis is a prescription-only medication for erectile dysfunction, and contains the active ingredient tadalafil. It can be a good alternative to treatments like Viagra because it has a longer-lasting effect (up to 36 hours). There are two types of Cialis:

  • Cialis – which is available in a 10mg or 20mg strength, and is taken just before you are going to have sex.
  • Cialis Daily – A lower dose of Cialis, available in a 2.5mg or 5mg strength, which is taken every day. This can be a better option for people who have frequent or spontaneous sex.

Can I buy Cialis online?

To get a prescription for Cialis from us, you will need to provide information via an easy online questionnaire. One of our doctors will review your details and issue a prescription, provided Cialis is safe and appropriate for you to use. You can use your prescription to buy Cialis at a pharmacy of your choice. If, for any reason, Cialis is unsuitable for you then you will be refunded. Sometimes the doctors may ask you to provide additional information before they can safely prescribe the medication.

Do not buy Cialis online without a prescription. Any website that claims to sell Cialis without a prescription is not only illegal, but putting your health at risk for profit. There is no legitimate way to buy Cialis without a prescription, nor is it safe to do so.

How Cialis works

Cialis works in a similar way to other erectile dysfunction treatments. It relaxes muscles around your penis, improving blood flow and making it easier to get and keep erections when you’re aroused.

If taken before sex, Cialis:

  • starts working in about 30 mins
  • lasts for up to 36 hours
  • might not work as well if you drink alcohol or eat a heavy meal beforehand

If you take Cialis Daily, you do not need to plan to take it before sex. Cialis Daily is always working, and helps you get an erection whenever you’re ready to have sex.

How to take Cialis

Taking Cialis is easy, just like any other tablet you swallow:

  • For Cialis 10mg and 20mg – take your tablet 1 hour before you want to have sex, and avoid heavy meals before you take it
  • For Cialis Daily – take your tablet at the same time every day
  • Swallow your tablet whole, with water if needed
  • Don’t take more than 1 tablet every 24 hours
  • Avoid drinking alcohol to get the best results and less risk of side effects

What are the dosages of Cialis?

There are 4 dosages of Cialis. 2 daily doses and 2 doses taken before sex. Daily doses can be a better choice if you have sex on more than 3 different days a week.

Cialis 2.5mg:

  • The lower-strength daily dose
  • You can try this dose if you’ve tried 5mg and it worked well but it gives you some mild side effects
  • Daily doses
  • The standard daily dose
  • This is the recommended dose if you’ve not tried Cialis Daily before

Cialis 10mg:

  • The standard before sex dose
  • This is the recommended dose if you’ve not tried Cialis before

Cialis 20mg:

  • The higher-strength before sex dose
  • You could try this dose if 10mg does not work for you and you don’t get any serious side effects

Make sure to check with a doctor before switching the dose of any medication.
