Known as the weekend pill and considered by widely regarded the second most popular ED medication, you can buy Cialis online in four different doses. For most men using the treatment for the first time, the 10mg dose will be the recommended start point.

Why is 10mg the Initiation Dose?

Not everyone is the same when it comes to medication, Cialis included. Some people are more responsive than others, and some people are more susceptible to side effects. When a doctor completes a prescription, in most cases they will try to give the patient the smallest effective dose. This helps to limit the patient’s risk of developing side effects.

Approving a median dose, such as Cialis 10mg, provides a prescriber with room to manoeuvre; if the middle dose proves efficacious but causes mild side effects, which in the case of Cialis, may be a headache or episode of nasal congestion, then a milder dose can be given; whereas if the middle dose is not as potent as desired, a stronger course can be prescribed.

Why not save time by just starting with the highest dose?

The most important aspect of erectile dysfunction medication or indeed any medication to consider is safety. It is possible for people to have conditions which they may not yet be aware of, and be prone to side effects without foreknowledge. Prescribing Cialis 10mg for first-time users helps doctors to circumvent this risk.

In the interests of safety, you should always provide as much information pertaining to your medical history as you can when undergoing consultation. This will help to minimise the possibility of you being given a medication which is not suitable, and lower the potential for unwanted reactions.

And in any case, this drug should only be given to those experiencing symptoms of erectile dysfunction who do not have any significant health issues.

Performance in Clinical Trials

The strength of each dose of Cialis, including the 10mg, has been assessed in clinical examinations, and the results were as follows:

  1. Men in the four studies surveyed were asked to keep a diary of how often they were able to achieve an erection strong enough for penetration after taking Cialis. 
  2. On average, those taking the 10mg dose were able to do so 73 per cent of the time. 
  3. This is compared with 81% using the higher dose.
  4. The subjects were also asked how often their erections stayed firm long enough for them to complete intercourse.
  5. In 59% of attempted cases across three studies using the 10mg version of Cialis, the answer was that they did.
  6. This increased to 71% in those taking the stronger dose.

As has been proven then, because Cialis 10mg only contains half the amount of tadalafil as the highest dose, it is not necessarily only half as effective.

When considering these results, patients should also remember that Cialis is only an ‘on-demand’ pill to a certain degree. It is unlike all other ED medicines in that it is taken once and lasts for up to 36 hours.
