Cialis is a PDE5 inhibitor that contains tadalafil and is taken by mouth to treat erectile dysfunction, in addition to the signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia, or both. When Cialis is needed for erectile dysfunction, the starting dose is 10 mg before any sexual activity, which can be increased to 20 mg or decreased to 5 mg, depending on efficacy and tolerability. For once-daily use for erectile dysfunction, 2.5 mg of Cialis should be taken once a day without regard to sexual activity timing, though it may be increased to 5 mg based on efficacy and tolerability. For once-daily use for the signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia, 5mg of Cialis should be taken at about the same time every day. For once-daily use for both erectile dysfunction and the signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia, 5 mg of Cialis should be taken at about the same time every day. Cialis may be taken without regard to meals, but it should not be taken more than once a day.
Of note for consumers, the drug is contraindicated in patients using any form of organic nitrates to relieve angina, given that this treatment combination may cause an immediate and unsafe decline in blood pressure, and in patients using a GC stimulator like riociguat, since that combination may potentiate the latter drug’s hypotensive effects. The most common adverse reactions to Cialis in clinical trials included headache, dyspepsia, back pain, myalgia, nasal congestion, flushing, and pain in limbs, according to the drug’s prescribing information.
The Food and Drug Administration actually issued an import alert to order Eli Lilly to cease making Cialis at its plant in Australia because testing showed that the product not only contained tadalafil, the active ingredient in Cialis, but also sildenafil, the active ingredient in competitor drug Viagra. However, Eli Lilly claimed that it doesn’t have a plant in Australia that manufactures Cialis or any other pharmaceutical product. In fact, an Eli Lilly and Company spokesperson said the company has never manufactured Cialis in Australia and added that erectile dysfunction drugs such as Cialis are typically counterfeits.
A number of legal online pharmacies sell what they claim to be generic Cialis in Australia without a prescription. One such website at the address http://edonlinestores.net sells what it says is cheap high-quality Cialis over the counter in Australia. The per-pill price decreases as the quantity ordered increases, as a package of 360 10-mg generic Cialis pills has a listed price of AU$1.20 per pill, while a package of 20 10-mg generic Cialis pills has a listed price of AU$2.82. As a bonus, the online pharmacy offers Free Airmail Shipping for all packages of or greater than 180 generic Cialis pills across all dosage strengths.
It’s important to note that the consumer cost for Cialis in the United States was between $29.84 and $45.83 per 10-mg pill just a few years ago. This means that those in Australia who obtain Cialis through online pharmacies are reaping very large discounts on the drug in terms of per-pill price.
