 Your medical history, treatment response, and any additional medications you may be taking all play a role in determining the dosage. Tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products).

To treat the symptoms of BPH, use this medication once daily as directed by your doctor. If you are also taking finasteride to treat the symptoms of BPH, talk to your doctor about how long you should take this medication.

There are two main methods that tadalafil can be given to treat erectile dysfunction. Your doctor will determine the most efficient way for you to take tadalafil. Follow your doctor’s advice to the letter because your dosage depends on how you are taking the medication. In the beginning, take it as needed, often at least 30 minutes prior to having sex. Tadalafil’s effects on sexual performance could last for up to 36 hours.

To treat ED, tadalafil should be consumed frequently—once per day. You can participate in sexual activity whenever you wish in between doses with this delivery strategy.

If you’re using tadalafil to treat both ED and BPH, you should take it as directed by your doctor, which is normally once daily. Whenever you want in between doses, you are free to have sexual relations.

“It’s important to take this medicine as advised by a doctor or pharmacist”

Tadalafil tablets come in different strengths.

Swallow your tablets whole, with a drink of water. The tablets can be taken with or without food.

How much to consume for erectile dysfunction?

You usually take tadalafil before having sex. Take 1 tablet at least 30 minutes before you want to have sex. Do not take more than 1 tablet a day.

The usual dose is 10mg. Your doctor may increase or decrease your dose, depending on how well it works and how often you take it.

The effects may last longer than 24 hours, so you’re not recommended to take the 10mg or 20mg tablets every day.

For the tablet to work properly, you’ll need to be sexually excited.

If you have a private prescription for tadalafil, read the information that comes with your medicine carefully. The strength and dosage instructions can vary.
