Generic tadalafil is mainly known for its characteristic as a PDE5 inhibitor drug, just like the first of its kind (Viagra or sildenafil). Generic tadalafil is known by other people via the brand name Cialis, which is indicated for treating erectile dysfunction (ED) or impotence. Generic tadalafil also comes with another brand name known as Adcirca, and this one is intended for treating pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).
Generic tadalafil tablets have 4 different milligram dosages available in the market: 2.5, 5, 10 and 20 mg. Generic tadalafil tablets are shaped like almonds, colored yellow and are typically film-coated.
For most patients, the usual dose that is recommended by doctors when it comes to taking generic tadalafil is 10 mg. However, it really depends on the patient’s tolerance and degree of sensitivity to the generic tadalafil drug. For some men, 10 mg of generic tadalafil may be too much for them, which means that 2.5 of generic tadalafil is sufficient enough to help them achieve an erection during sexual intercourse. As for others, 10 mg of generic tadalafil may be not enough for them; thus, their generic tadalafil dose may have to be increased up to 20 mg in order to achieve a successful penile erection. Only your doctor can help determine the appropriate generic tadalafil dose based on other factors such as your past medical history, your current age, your current health conditions, your lifestyle, diet, etc.
While PDE5 inhibitors usually require a prescription and you can only buy at the local pharmacy store; these days, you can buy generic tadalafil online as well. To make sure that you are perfectly safe in taking generic tadalafil, first ask your doctor about it. If he gives you the okay signal, then you can initially buy a few generic tadalafil tablets at the local pharmacy. Once the results are great and you are in need of a few more generic tadalafil tablets, then you can opt to buy via the Internet through online pharmacies or merchants that sell generic tadalafil pills and other medicines. Most men prefer to buy their generic tadalafil online because it helps them avoid feeling shame or embarrassment that they will surely feel when they buy this drug at the local pharmacy. Also, they do not have to go out of the house and fall in a long queue at the pharmacy just to buy generic tadalafil tablets. They simply have to wait until their package arrives at their doorstep.
Typically, generic tadalafil tablets can last for up to 36 hours (or even more); however, this still depends on the dose you are taking and the response of your body to the drug. Because generic tadalafil is well known for its longer half-life attribute as compared to other PDE5 inhibitors, it is highly advised that you must never take this more than once a day. After taking a generic tadalafil tablet, take the time and wait 15 minutes for the medicine to work.
The 20mg tablet is the highest available dose for generic tadalafil. One of the reasons why generic tadalafil is more preferred by men is because it lasts much longer when compared to other ED medications available in the market. Sildenafil (Viagra) only lasts 4 hours, whereas generic tadalafil (Cialis) lasts for about 36 hours! Also, the onset of action is a lot shorter, which is within 20 minutes or even less.
