Can I be prescribed Cialis 20mg at the first consultation?

No, this won’t happen.

Why can this version not be prescribed as a first intention?

Like Cialis, all erectile dysfunction treatments are available in a number of doses. The maximum dosage of Cialis is 20mg and should not be prescribed unless lower doses are ineffective. It is also important to make sure that the patient does not suffer from any allergies when increasing the dose.

How long does Cialis last?

Like all medical treatments, it is advised that you use Cialis in a low or medium dosage. The maximum dose should only be used when the others have provided limited results for the patient.

How do you know if a weaker dose doesn’t work?

The treatment’s effectiveness in aiding erectile dysfunction should be judged in terms of the duration of erections. It is hence easy to determine whether or not the dose you took is adequate. However, it is also important to remember that it takes a while to start working, and each patient is different.

What’s more, taking Cialis after a meal or after drinking at a party can influence how effective the treatment is. You should also take this into account before you judge how effective the treatment is. The best thing to do is respect all instructions of use when taking the treatment, before thinking about increasing your dosage.

Things to know about different Cialis dosages

There have been a number of clinical tests to predict its results. These tests concluded that:

  • 81% of those using Cialis 20mg managed to get an erection firm enough for penetrative sexual intercourse
  • 71% of cases found that their erection was suitable for normal sexual activity
  • 59% of patients who found Cialis worked were using average doses

Is Cialis prescribed to a certain type of person?

Cialis is not suitable for those who experience side effects after starting the treatment. If this is the case, you are advised to inform your doctor as soon as possible. It is also formally forbidden to try and increase the dosage of the medication.

You will find more information on Cialis’ conditions of use in the ‘Cialis’ article on our website. Remember that you should never double your Cialis dosage in the hope that it will intensify your feelings. If you think that your current dose does not work, consult your doctor.

Should I opt for Cialis 2.5mg or 5mg?

What dosage you choose depends on your health and how prone you are to experiencing side effects. Cialis Daily should be taken every day. If you are trying it for the first time and you are in great health, there is no problem starting with Cialis 5mg. However, if you have already tried this treatment in the past and you experienced side effects such as headaches, vision loss or nasal congestion, your doctor would probably rather you took a lower dose of 2.5mg. If you experience any side effects using either this dose or the 5mg, you are advised to alert the doctor as soon as possible.

Is there a difference between the two doses of Cialis?

Cialis 2.5mg and 5mg are both produced in the same way, using the same active ingredient. The only difference is that one is stronger than the other, which will be reflected in the side effects experienced by the patient. Besides this, there is no other difference between these dosages. According to an American study on 287 people over 6 months, it was established that:

  • 71% of patients who took Cialis 5mg had firm enough erections to have penetrative sexual intercourse
  • 65% of those who took the 2.5mg dose also found they were able to have normal penetrative sex
  • 57% of those who took Cialis 5mg were able to have sex for a reasonably long time
  • 50% of patients taking Cialis 2.5mg also found they could have sex for a reasonably long time

This indicates that there is not an enormous difference between the two dosages. There is no point in increasing your dose if you are satisfied with the lower one.

Advantages of Cialis Daily

If you want it to be continually effective, you should opt for Cialis Daily, which you should take each day. By opting for this version of the treatment, you can be relatively spontaneous to have sex at any time, instead of having to plan ahead like with other erectile dysfunction treatments.

Cialis Daily Vs. classic Cialis: which is more effective?

Various scientific studies have shown that there is a slight difference between the efficacy of the two modes of treatment. It was established that 73% of those taking a medium dosage of Cialis got a good enough erection for penetration. This percentage is 71% for Cialis Daily.

59% of those taking a medium dosage just managed to get a good erection, whilst this was 57% of those taking Cialis Daily.

You can see that there is a slight difference in terms of efficacy for the two doses. The patient is hence free to choose either Cialis Daily or the more occasional classic Cialis.
