What Is The Generic for Cialis

Men who are faced with such an unpleasant but common disease as erectile dysfunction, and are looking for effective ways to solve their problem, often opt for Cialis pills to increase potency. Cialis has a large number of advantages in comparison with other anti-ED drugs belonging to the group of PDE-5 inhibitors, such as Levitra and Viagra: quick onset of effect and long-term effect, minimal number of side effects and contraindications, good tolerability by most patients, the possibility of use in presence of BPH. However, this medicine still has a significant drawback: high price. Not every man can afford regular intake of these pills. Meanwhile, for an effective fight against erectile dysfunction, in most cases, a more or less long-term administration of pills is necessary.

One of the most effective ways to save money on ED treatment without prejudice to its quality is to start buying not the original (branded) Cialis, which is produced in the USA only by the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly, but its generics. Recall that generics, or analogues, are drugs that are identical in properties and active substance to their prototype, but are produced by other pharmaceutical companies that can be located in any country in the world. Trade names of generic medicines can simply duplicate the name of the main active ingredient, contain the name of the manufacturer, or even have a completely improvised form. In any case, they should not coincide with the name of the original medication, since this contradicts international patent standards.

Since the main active substance of Cialis, which determines its therapeutic properties, is the PDE-5 inhibitor Tadalafil, all generics of this drug are also based on this substance. Branded Cialis is available in dosages of 5, 10 and 20 mg of Tadalafil, and its analogues, in addition to these three options, can be produced in dosages of 2.5, 40 and even 60 mg. Before using a medicine with a large dosage, it is needed to make sure that you know the maximum daily amount of Tadalafil (this value is 20 mg). Based on this information, divide tablets with ultra-large dosages into several parts.

Cialis Now Available as Generic Tadalafil

In some countries, the patent protection period for Cialis, owned by Eli Lilly, has long expired, and a variety of manufacturers release their own versions of Cialis. These countries include Canada, India, Australia, as well as a number of European countries. However, in the USA itself this event happened only this year, and it was practically not covered in the press or on news web portals. This should not be surprising, because the Eli Lilly concern can’t rejoice in such news.

In this regard, we consider it necessary to emphasize that since 2019, generics manufactured in the United States are available to men suffering from erectile dysfunction. At the moment, not too many manufacturers have managed to take the opportunity to release their analogues of this more than popular drug to restore potency, but in the near future the situation will change. The first Cialis generics made in the USA have already appeared on the American pharmaceutical market and expect consumer attention.

It might surprise someone why we are paying so much attention to this news, because for a long time patients can purchase any generics that interest them by ordering them abroad – in foreign online pharmacies. It has become possible due to rapid development of international online trade. However, for some people this method of purchase remains uncomfortable due to the rather long waiting time for the delivery of drugs when they are needed immediately, which can happen with everyone. And other men simply don’t trust the products of countries such as India, and it is useless to cite evidence that Indian drugs are one of the highest quality in the world, because there is a certain cultural stereotype that is very difficult to overcome, especially for older men. Finally, it is morally more pleasant for any American to purchase goods made in the USA, and this also contributes to the demand for American non-branded Cialis.

Since this time, every man who is in need of taking medication to combat erectile dysfunction or eliminate the symptoms of BPH will be able to purchase American-made generic Tadalafil at prices less than half the price of a branded drug due to the absence of large advertising campaigns. All the positive properties of the drug will remain with it. You will receive a reliable, high-quality drug made in your home country.

Just as in the case of the original medicine, it is recommended that you consult an urologist and carefully read the instructions for use, paying special attention to contraindications, side effects, and dosage regimen before taking it.
