CIALIS Daily is a popular treatment for impotence and erectile dysfunction as it is reliable, convenient and discreet. One 2.5mg or 5mg tablet taken daily is all that is needed to help improve performance and confidence. Cialis daily medication ensures that you are always prepared when it matters most removing the worry and allowing you to have a healthy sexual relationship .
CIALIS is a commonly used treatment for adult men with erectile dysfunction or impotence. CIALIS has been shown to significantly improve the ability of obtaining a hard erect penis suitable for sexual activity.
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 will not help you if you do not have erectile dysfunction.
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 before.
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. Grapefruit juice may affect how well CIALIS will work and should be taken with caution. Talk to your doctor for further information.
cialis is also a more suitable impotence medication than Viagra for diabetics and those with high blood pressure. It can be used:
By men of all ages
No matter how severe erectile dysfunction may be
By men who have undergone a prostatectomy or have had partial removal of their prostate
