Cialis, also known as tadalafil, is a medication used to treat male sexual function problems (erectile dysfunction or impotence) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (enlarged prostate) in men. The medication works by relaxing the blood vessels in the penis, allowing blood to flow into the area and thereby creating an erection. When Cialis is used to treat benign prostatic hypertrophy, it is thought to work by relaxing the smooth muscle in the prostate and bladder. Cialis is taken by mouth, with or without food, as directed by your physician. The recommended dosage of the medication will be determined by your physician and will take into account the condition you are being treated for, your response to the medication and the possible interactions of Cialis with any other medications that you are currently taking. It is suggested to take Cialis approximately 20 – 30 minutes before any planned sexual activity. It is possible to have an erection for up to 36 hours after taking Cialis. This medication can also be taken at lower doses as a daily medication. It is important to note that Cialis does not cause erections on its own, sexual stimulation is required. Cialis does not cure erectile dysfunction or impotence, increase sex drive, protect from sexually transmitted infections or diseases nor does it serve as a form of birth control. When using Cialis, it is important not to exceed more than one tablet in any 24 hour period. Cialis should not be combined with any other erectile dysfunction or impotence medications. Several common side effects that can occur when taking Cialis include headache, indigestion, back pain, muscle aches, flushed skin and stuffy or runny nose. The side effects related to Cialis generally go away after a few hours. Cialis can be taken with alcohol but it is best to avoid combining Cialis with recreational drugs containing butyl or amyl nitrates, sometimes referred to as “poppers”.
Rarely, Cialis can produce a painful erection or an erection that won’t go away. In either case, if the erection lasts for more than four hours, you should contact your physician or visit your nearest emergency department. Cialis may be unsafe to take for men who have suffered a stroke, have heart disease or have been diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa (a disease of the eye). Cialis can be purchased online in South Africa without having to visit a physician’s office or obtain a prescription. There are several reputable online merchants to choose from in South Africa. Some allow you to take an online assessment which is then reviewed by a physician who can advise a recommended starting dose of Cialis. Other online merchants allow you to choose the starting dose of Cialis without a prescription or physician’s order. Cialis online orders can cost as little as $1.14 per pill, depending on your desired dosage and the size of your order. It is generally more cost effective to order Cialis in bulk when purchasing the medication online. When ordering Cialis online, delivery times can range from 5 – 21 business days depending on your location and the type of delivery you choose, i.e. standard or expedited.
