Benefits of Tadalafil
Tadalafil is a good choice for men who haven’t used erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment before. Most men find the treatment works well from the first use, with few side effects.1
It is also a good choice for men who have used ED treatment before and are looking for something that lasts longer.
Unlike most other ED treatments, whose effects last 4-6 hours, one dose of Tadalafil can last up to 36 hours. This means that a tablet taken on a Friday night could still be working on Sunday morning. Tadalafil is sometimes called “the weekend pill” because of this.
Finally, it is also an excellent choice for people who would like to take a tablet every day that supports a more relaxed and spontaneous sex life. The lower-strength tablets are designed to be used in this way.
What is Tadalafil
Tadalafil is one of a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors. These work by increasing the blood flow to the penis when sexually aroused, resulting in an erection that is strong enough and lasts long enough to enjoy sex.
Tadalafil will not give you instant or uncontrolled erections, you will always need to be sexually aroused. You will also lose your erection after ejaculation (coming) as normal.
How do you take Tadalafil
Tadalafil is a small tablet that can be taken with or without food and is available in 2.5mg, 5mg, 10mg, and 20mg strengths.
Which strength of Tadalafil is best for me?
Tadalafil is available in different strengths, which are designed to be used in different ways.
Tadalafil 2.5mg & 5mg tablets (Tadalafil Daily)
These low-strength Tadalafil tablets should be taken as one tablet every day.
They should be taken every day whether you have sex on that day or not.
Taking Tadalafil in this way means you always have a small amount in your body, so the medicine is always working. This means you will get an erection whenever you are aroused, no matter what time of day or night.
Once-daily Tadalafil tablets are our recommended treatment choice for people who experience erectile dysfunction regularly and enjoy sex two to three times per week.
If you are using low-dose daily Tadalafil for the first time, please note that it takes up to two weeks to start working.
Tadalafil 10mg & 20mg tablets (As required dosage)
10mg and 20mg tablets should be taken a minimum of 30 minutes before sex.
They should only be taken when you are expecting to have sex, and are too strong to be taken every day.
These lower strengths are a better choice for people who only experience erectile dysfunction sometimes, who prefer not to take a tablet every day or who have already tried another ED tablet treatment which hasn’t suited them.
How long does Tadalafil last?
Tadalafil continues to work for up to 36 hours after taking which is why many people like it. A tablet taken on a Friday night could still be working on the Sunday morning, making it convenient and economical.
The 2.5mg and 5mg daily doses are taken every day, meaning there is always a small amount of the medicine in your body. This allows erections to be spontaneous at any time.
If you stop taking daily Tadalafil after previously taking for more than two weeks, it will take up to one week for the effects to wear off.
Tadalafil will not give you an instant or uncontrollable erection, you still need to be sexually aroused.
Who should NOT take Tadalafil
Sometimes Tadalafil can be unsafe to use.
You should consult your doctor or our team before taking Tadalafil if;

Occasionally, Tadalafil might not be a good fit for you, or another treatment might suit you better. We will tell you if this is the case during your consultation.
2.5mg and 5mg tablets
Take ONE tablet every day, ideally at the same time each day.
We recommend you start with the 5mg tablets. If you find your erections are very firm, painful in any way or lasting longer than needed, we will recommend you reduce to the 2.5mg strength tablets.
If you ever have an erection that lasts longer than 4 hours, you must go to a hospital emergency department.
Daily dose Tadalafil tablets can take up to two weeks to work fully.
If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. Never take two tablets to make up for a forgotten dose.
10mg and 20mg tablets
Take ONE tablet 30 minutes before sex.
We recommend you start with the 10mg tablets. If you find your erections are not firm enough or last long enough to enjoy sex, we may suggest you try the 20mg tablets.
You should not adjust your dose of Tadalafil without speaking to a healthcare professional first. Our team are available by phone, email and via the message centre in your online account during working hours.
Tadalafil Side Effects
