Cialis Soft

What is it used for?

Cialis Soft (tadalafil citrate) is used for treating the symptoms of erectile dysfunction (ED) in male patients. The drug features a shortened onset time (20 minutes) while retaining its long therapeutic window of 36 hours, during which user can achieve and maintain multiple erections every time sexual arousal occurs.

Cialis Soft is based on the active substance tadalafil citrate. When you order Cialis Soft at our pharmacy, you confirm that you have received a medical consultation that informed you about the effects of the drug, its correct dosing and posology, possible interactions and side effects, and other important facts related to tadalafil therapy. In the event of adverse reactions, seek medical help.

Understanding the drug mechanism

Cialis Soft (tadalafil citrate) is a vasoactive oral erectogenic drug used to restore the sexual function in males. The drug belongs to the class of phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5) that boost the flow of blood to the penis. Tadalafil is a powerful donor of nitric oxide (NO), the chemical that during sexual arousal signals to the brain the necessity to accumulate the substance called cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) in the erectile bodies (the corpora cavernosa and the corpus spongiosum). This substance relaxes the smooth muscles in the penis, thus allows the blood to flow freely in and stay inside until the moment of ejaculation.

It should be noted that erections only occur in the presence of sexual arousal, which means that Cialis Soft is not an aphrodisiac agent and it will not give you a spontaneous erection.

Doses and uses

Cialis Soft comes in two doses: tadalafil 20mg and tadalafil 40mg. Both doses are on the high end of the spectrum and should only be used in the absence of comorbidity conditions and other medications taken concomitantly that could put patient at risk. These possibilities should always be considered by a healthcare practitioner; as a rule, the initial doses of tadalafil are 10 to 20mg, which make Cialis Soft 20mg an ideal starting medication.

Take a pill of Cialis Soft by mouth following with a sufficient amount of water (1/2 to full glass). The drug can be taken with or without meals. Alcohol does not affect the drug’s efficiency, but taken in larger amounts it can cause a serious drop in blood pressure.
