WHAT CIALIS IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR
CIALIS is a treatment for men with erectile dysfunction. This is when a man cannot get, or keep a
hard, erect penis suitable for sexual activity.
CIALIS belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors. Following sexual
stimulation CIALIS works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax, allowing the flow of
blood into your penis. The result of this is improved erectile function. CIALIS will not help you if you
do not have erectile dysfunction.
It is important to note that CIALIS does not work if there is no sexual stimulation. You and your
partner will need to engage in foreplay, just as you would if you were not taking a medicine for
BEFORE YOU TAKE CIALIS
Do not take CIALIS
– if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to tadalafil or any of the other ingredients of CIALIS.
– if you are taking any form of organic nitrate or nitric oxide donors such as amyl nitrite. This is a
group of medicines (“nitrates”) used in the treatment of angina pectoris (“chest pain”). CIALIS has
been shown to increase the effects of these medicines. If you are taking any form of nitrate or are
unsure tell your doctor.
