Cialis, the brand name for generic tadalafil, has recently become quite popular among the male population as an alternative to drugs like Viagra. Generic tadalafil is classified as a drug called a phosphodiesterase inhibitor. Generic tadalafil is an oral drug used in the treatment of male anatomical dysfunction and impotence and was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in November of 2003. Generic tadalafil is only available through a prescription with no generic counterparts. When dispensed, generic tadalafil is available in tablets of 5, 10, and 20 mg and should be stored at room temperature, sealed, and out of the reach of children. The recommended beginning dose of generic tadalafil is 10 mg a day taken before sexual activity. Dosages may be elevated to no more than 20 mg depending on side effects and the rapidity of the onset of male anatomical functionality. The effects of generic tadalafil may last up to 36 hours and dosages may not exceed 10 mg if taking generic tadalafil and other medications that are used for the purpose of increasing blood levels of tadalafil.
There are some serious drug interactions when taking generic tadalafil such as an increase in the level of tadalafil in the blood when mixed with other medications such as ketoconozole. Nitrates such as nitroglycerin that are used to treat heart conditions and angina, can combine with the generic tadalafil to produce an exaggerated heart rate and drop in blood pressure and may cause a heart attack if not treated right away. Taladifil is not for use by women for any condition. Combining generic tadalafil with alcohol can be as detrimental as the combination of alcohol and any prescription drug causing dizziness, headaches and increased heart rate. The most common side effects are a mild rosacea, headaches, upset stomach, diarrhea, flu-like symptoms, and nausea.
