It is sometimes referred to by its brand name, Cialis (when used for erectile dysfunction) and Benign (when used for an enlarged prostate).
On its own, Tadalafil can not achieve an erection on its own – a certain level of sexual arousal is also required. The medication should never be taken if you are also taking nitrates, which can lead to very low blood pressure.
After taking Tadalafil, it can take anywhere between 30 and 60 minutes for the effects to start showing. It should never be taken more than once a day, though.
There are some mild side effects associated with the use of Tadalafil. These include back pain, indigestion, headaches, facial flushes, and muscle aches.

Who Can Take It?
It should only be taken by men over 18 years old. However, it is not suitable for all men.
Tadalafil should not be taken if you are taking nitrates or have had an allergic reaction to it in the past. You should also steer clear if you have low blood pressure, liver or heart problems, or eye blood flow issues.
Those men who want to use Tadalafil should check with their doctor before doing so if they have kidney or liver issues, leukemia, problems with their heart, or have sickle cell anemia.

How To Take It
As with any medication, it is important to follow the advice given to you by your doctor. Because it comes in tablets of different strengths, you need to be careful to take the correct amount.
The tablets should always be taken as a whole, along with a glass of water. You can take them either with or without food in your system.
You should take it approximately 30 minutes before you are planning on having sex. No more than one tablet should be taken on a single day.
The average dosage is 10mg, although your doctor may decrease this or increase this dosage, depending on its effects on your body.
In some men, the effects can last up to 24 hours – so be aware of this before taking one.
