What is Cialis 20mg used for?

Cialis 20mg is the highest available dose of this erectile dysfunction medication. It might be issued in cases where the patient has taken the lower dose (Cialis 10mg) and tolerated it well, but it has not produced a sufficient enough response. Erectile dysfunction patients taking Cialis will tend to start on the lower dose, and only have their dosage increased by their prescriber if it does not provide the desired results.

As such, patients can only buy Cialis 20mg online at our UK pharmacy if they have been prescribed this dose before by a doctor.

What are the signs of a milder dose of Cialis not working?

For those who are taking impotence medication, an example of ‘less than sufficient effectiveness’ might be an erection which does not stay firm for long enough during intercourse. Some people may also find that the treatment takes longer to work, or has a weak level of potency. Others may find that it does not provide the 36 hours of erectile dexterity which it is supposed to.

But it is also worth considering that a milder dose may not work as well if you take it while drinking alcohol or after having a big meal, because your body will not be able to process the active ingredient as efficiently. Prior to approaching your doctor about a lower or medium dose not working, it is advisable to make sure you are taking it according to the specified guidelines.

How do the medium and higher doses compare?

Clinical studies have shown that:

  1. In men using the Cialis 20mg dose, an erection prominent enough for vaginal penetration was obtained in 81 per cent of attempted encounters.
  2. Across three of the studies in the same report, a level of firmness proficient enough to complete intercourse was kept in 71 per cent of cases.
  3. This is compared to respective figures of 73 per cent and 59 per cent in those men who used the middle dose.

Are there people who should not use Cialis 20mg?

Yes. You can read more on this here.

Those who notice side effects of any sort when using a milder dose should notify their prescriber.

More details are available on those conditions and medications which restrict use on our Cialis page.

It is important that you do not double up on doses when using a milder treatment, in order to achieve a stronger effect. Always consult your doctor if your medicine isn’t working properly.

Should first-time users take Cialis 20mg?

No, as this dose is not usually recommended.

For ED patients using our service, we will ask during consultation if they have taken the medicine they are ordering before. 

As such, if a first-time patient orders Cialis 20mg online from our pharmacy, we will not provide it, and recommend that they see a doctor or consult for a lower dose.

As explained above, if you have taken the lower dose and you feel it has not worked as well as it should, speak to your doctor.
