10 Things Almost Everyone Gets Wrong About Generic Cialis

Cialis (Tadalafil): Few words about it

Cialis (generic name tadalafil) is a popular medication that helps men with erectile dysfunction, or impotence, to respond with erection to sexual arousal. The principle of its work is that it relaxes smooth muscles in the penis and makes blood flow into the vessels of that organ more easily. This is the reason why men have an erection. However, sometimes guys don’t get the results they expect from Generic Cialis. And, most likely, the reason is that they haven’t read the instruction which comes with the medication or got something about it wrong. Statistics says there are almost 70% of men who used the pill but still weren’t able to perform. So, they feel sad, angry, frustrated and sometimes even more unable to have an erection than before. It is very easy to prevent that if patients set the right expectations from the very beginning.

The most popular mistakes and the most common delusions about Generic Cialis

Few words about it

Generic Cialis cannot work unless you’re already sexually excited

The mechanism of sexual arousal isn’t that simple: it is the brain that gives a signal to muscles to relax, lets the blood flow into the penis and makes it harder. Cialis can’t make your brain want a woman, you have to do it yourself. Try to stimulate yourself before the intercourse: it’s not only women who need foreplay, men need it, too.

It is very possible the first time you try Generic Cialis there will be no result

When the drug first appeared on the market, it was recommended to give it a try six times, preferably in various situations, before it was discarded as ineffective. So you can start with a lower dose, try it two times, then increase it and try two times more, and then, if that doesn’t work, try the maximum dose, also twice.

Don’t expect Cialis to work as fast as they say in the ad

Yes, for some people it starts working as quickly as in 30 minutes, but that’s not the average. Moreover, the first times you use the drug it might not work at all. So, make sure you wait at least an hour. In fact, they say the best time for acting is two or three hours after taking the pill. Later, when you get used to Cialis and its presence in your body, it can start functioning faster and will last longer – for up to 36 hours.

Don’t take Cialis straight after you’ve had a meal

It is more effective on an empty stomach, so you’d better not eat one or two hours before using the drug. The reason is that the absorption of the drug isn’t full if there’s something else in the stomach. This rule applies better to Generic Viagra and Levitra but there’s evidence that it also works for Cialis.

You might need a higher dose of generic Cialis

The dosage is very individual and depends on many factors. It is recommended to start with lower doses but if that doesn’t help, you can increase them unless you have already started with a maximum. Increasing the maximum might be dangerous, so don’t do that without consulting your doctor, unless you know you’re 100% healthy. Otherwise, it can lead to various side effects.

Rule #5 doesn’t work if you’re around 65 or older

Then you shouldn’t increase the dose – on the contrary, most likely your dose should be lowered as high dosage might be dangerous for your health and won’t make you perform any better. Ask a specialist about the right dosage for you.

The rule “the longer, the better” doesn’t apply when you’re taking ED drugs

It is not OK if you still have an erection 4 hours after taking Cialis. That is a side effect, and it might be a sign of a serious problem. You should stop taking the drug and consult your doctor immediately.

Taking with Other Medications

Taking other medications that treat impotence such as Sildenafil (Viagra), Vardenafil (Levitra), Alprostadil (Caverject, Muse, Edex) or Yohimbine (Yocon, Yodoxin) with Cialis is wrong. It won’t guarantee you best results but it will possibly increase the probability of side effects or even worsen them.

Cialis doesn’t work like a contraceptive medication

It is not a birth control pill for men, like some people think. Yes, the drug controls the muscles in the penis, but it doesn’t affect sperm production in any way, and it can’t save you from venereal diseases. So you still have to use condoms.

You can get addicted to Cialis

It happens very seldom, but it does: some people become dependent on the medication and can’t get sexual arousal unless they take the drug. Specialists think that this kind of dependency is more psychological than physical (meaning their bodies actually can perform) and can be helped. But the dangerous thing about it is that it leads to overdose and, as a result, to a higher risk of adverse effects. Please be careful with Cialis and remember that it only helps to relax muscles, but sexual arousal is the thing you have to thank your brain for.
