CIALIS for benign prostate hyperplasia and erectile dysfunction may be taken at a dose of 5 mg daily at approximately the same time every day.

Take CIALIS as prescribed by your healthcare provider. The way CIALIS is prescribed differs between men because of the conditions they have or the medications they take. Do not change your dose without first speaking to your healthcare provider. CIALIS can be taken with or without food. The tablet should not be crushed, chewed, or cut.

When taking CIALIS as needed for erectile dysfunction, take a tablet at least 30 minutes before sex. The tablet will be effective up to 36 hours after being swallowed.

You should not take CIALIS if you:

  • Are taking nitrates
  • Use nitrates, such as “poppers”, as recreational drugs
  • Are allergic to CIALIS

CIALIS can cause a significant drop in your blood pressure if you take it with medications called nitrates. Nitrates are used to treat the pain experienced during a heart attack. CIALIS may still be present in your blood for two days after taking the tablet. It is important to tell any healthcare provider that attends to you that you have taken CIALIS.

If you are taking CIALIS daily and you miss a dose, try to take it as soon as possible, then continue with the usual medication schedule. However, if you are due to take your next dose soon, skip the dose you missed and continue with your regular medication schedule. Under no circumstances should you take a double dose of the medication to make up for the missed dose. If you are unsure about what to do, contact your doctor or local pharmacist to obtain advice.

When taking CIALIS, you should avoid using other treatments for erectile dysfunction. Make sure that you don’t drink too much alcohol while on CIALIS. Drinking too much may increase your risk of experiencing a low blood pressure or developing a headache.
