Frequently Asked Questions about Cialis

What is Cialis?

Cialis is prescribed to treat physiologically induced erectile dysfunction, or male impotence. It is one member of the PDE-5 Inhibitor drug class, which includes many other drugs used to treat erectile dysfunction.

How is erectile dysfunction treated by Cialis?

Cialis works in a simple and effective way by increasing blood flow to the penis when you have been sexually aroused. This results in stronger and more durable erections. In many cases of erectile dysfunction, the penis is not receiving enough blood when the erection forms. Cialis solves this problem by increasing blood flow and preventing out-flow in order to improve the quality of the erection.

How should Cialis be taken?

Unlike most medications, Cialis does not need to be taken on a daily basis and can just be used as needed. Take Cialis about 15 to 20 minutes before you anticipate beginning sexual activity. It can have effects for up to 36 hours, and should not be taken more than once per 24-hour period. You can take it with or without food, and you should avoid alcohol while using Cialis.

What are the precautions associated with Cialis?

Cialis is taken safely by millions of men, but there are some things to be aware of. You should not use alcohol while taking Cialis, because it can decrease the effectiveness of the drug and increase the risk of side effects. It should also not be used at the same time as other erectile dysfunction drugs or aphrodisiacs. Finally, if you are taking a nitrate-based drug for heart conditions, you should not use Cialis. This combination can result in a dangerous drop in blood pressure that can lead to a heart attack. Consult your doctor if you have heart problems.

What can I do to make Cialis work better?

There are some lifestyle changes you can make in order to increase the effectiveness of Cialis: become more physically active and exercise at least 30 minutes three times a week, follow a balanced diet with limited saturated fats and sweets, don't abuse alcohol, stay away from tobacco products, and get plenty of rest to relieve stress. Not only will these things help Cialis work better, but also it will help you to feel better overall.
