Cialis Dosage

When considering using Cialis to combat the symptoms of erectile dysfunction, a conversation with your doctor is essential. The doctor may listen to what you have to say, and then decide that the dosage you receive is not the standard one that another man might receive. Reasons for suggesting lower or higher dosages are many.

The doctor may consider other medical conditions that you may have. He or she may also have to think carefully about other medicines or treatments that you are currently taking. This is because there may be contraindications present if you take other drugs.

For obvious reasons, it is absolutely vital that you do not adjust your dosage by yourself. Always seek medical advice if you are considering this.

The recommended standard dosage of Cialis is 10mg around one hour before sexual activity is due to start. However, you are able t take Cialis up to 36 hours before any sexual activity. If all goes well, and there are no real side effects being experienced, the doctor may suggest that you up your dose.


You can actually take Cialis every day. This includes days in which you do not partake in sexual activity. This means taking a much lower dosage. The dosage for daily use is set at 2.5mg. If this does not work too well when sexual activity occurs, you can be pushed up to 5mg, if your doctor thinks this is appropriate.

If you have kidney disease at a moderate level, the doctor may suggest that you take 5mg. This is providing that you do not take more than 10mg during any 48 hour period. Any man who has severe liver disease should not consider taking Cialis. The doctor would not allow it.

You can take Cialis at any time in the day. What you should remember about taking the drug is that it is generally seen as unsafe to take it more than once a day. Another consideration that is important is that you should not chew the drug, or crush it. If you have problems swallowing tablets see your doctor, who may be able to offer the drug in an alternative form.

You must always take Cialis in exactly the way the doctor tells you to. Taking it in any other way risks, at best, failure of the drug. At worst it could mean harmful effects on your body. Always do exactly what the doctor says when it comes to taking the drug.

You can take Cialis with or without food. This means that the drug is different to some other well known erectile dysfunction treatments, which cannot be taken with food.

If you are unsure about any issues as regards dosage for Cialis, consult with your doctor. They should be able to guide you through the whole process of taking the drug, and allay any anxieties you may be suffering from.
