How should I take Cialis?

If you are taking Cialis to treat erection problems you should swallow one whole tablet with some water at least 30 minutes before you want to have sex[2]. You should not take more than one tablet a day[3]. For some men, their doctor or a pharmacist may suggest that they take a low dose of Cialis daily. If you’d like to explore this option you can ask your GP if it is suitable for you.

It’s important to read the instructions that come with the medicine carefully because strength and dosage instructions can vary[2]. If you’re not sure how to take Cialis you can talk to a pharmacist or your GP for more information and support.

Cialis isn’t appropriate or safe for everyone to take, including men with some health conditions such as heart problems[2,3]. Talk to your GP or a pharmacist about whether Cialis is the best treatment option for you.

How long does it take for Cialis to work?

It usually takes at least 30 minutes for Cialis to work[3]. Some men may find it takes more or less time to get an erection after taking Cialis, everyone is different. Cialis can still be effective up to 36 hours after taking a tablet[3] which can allow for more spontaneity than some other treatments.

After sex, your erection should go away normally. If it doesn't, contact your pharmacist, NHS 111 or your GP.

How does Cialis work?

Cialis increases blood flow to the penis by relaxing blood vessels[1]. This should help you to get, and keep, an erection for sex or masturbation.

You do need to be sexually aroused in order for Cialis to work. If you’re not sexually aroused or your desire for sex (libido) is low, Cialis may not work for you.

If you are struggling with a low libido, you can get help to understand the cause and increase your desire for sex. This may help your erection problems. You can talk to your doctor to find out more about the support that is available, including professional help from a psychologist or counsellor. Your doctor may be able to refer you for counselling, or you can refer yourself through the NHS.

What if Cialis doesn't work for me or I don't want to take tablets?

There are a variety of treatment options for men with erection problems. You might need to try other medicines or a combination of treatments, for example counselling alongside medicine, in order to find what works best for you.

You may experience some side effects after taking Cialis. Side effects[2,3] can include:

  • headaches

  • sickness (nausea)

  • red or flushed face

  • indigestion

  • stuffy nose

  • muscle aches.

Talk to your GP or a pharmacist if you experience any side effects after taking Cialis. Find out more about all the possible side effects on the NHS website.

If Cialis isn’t suitable for you, there are other treatment options available that may help.
