Background Information

This medication is very helpful when it comes to the erectile dysfunction treatment, there are almost no unwanted effects. If you compare this drug to the more well-known Viagra, you will be able to see why so many men prefer Tadalis. Its side-effects list is shorter, and it works up to 36 hours. Many patients take this drug to enjoy a passion-filled weekend. When it comes to alcohol/foods interaction, this medication also performs better than its brand-name counterpart. Patients report feeling the effects after half an hour, which is also impressive. This drug’s efficacy has been proved time and time again by various clinical tests conducted by 3rd party companies.


Similar to other anti-ED medications based on tadalafil, Tadalis is a PDE-5 inhibitor. It works by improving the circulation in the penile area, soothing the muscles and allowing a better blood supply. Your body is now able to respond to sexual stimulus in the most natural way possible. You get strong, lasting erections, all thanks to this drug’s simple and straightforward impact. Many people report that their erections under the effect of this drug were among the strongest ones they have had in decades.

Other anti-ED medication.

  1. Alpha-blockers, including doxazosin, terazosin, prazosin, silodosin, and alfuzosin. This interaction also leads to a severe pressure drop.
  2. Antihypertensive drugs cause this type of reaction as well.
  3. Antifungal agents, including ketoconazole, voriconazole, itraconazole, telithromycin, clarithromycin, saquinavir, nefazodone, erythromycin.

Alcohol Interaction

This type of anti-ED drug is well-known for its efficiency, which causes it to sometimes interact with liquor. The risks are lower when compared to other alternatives, but they are still there. The patient undergoing the anti-ED treatment, should be aware that liquor causes your BP to drop. This pill has the same effect. You should not mix the two, because you might experience wooziness and lightheadedness, thanks to the combined effect. Many recent studies suggest that it is okay to drink in moderation, but the best case scenario is that you avoid alcohol altogether.

Food Interaction

This medication interacts with grapefruits and grapefruit juice. There are some unwanted side-effects that you might encounter if you mix the two, including headaches and heartburn. The most frequent form of interaction, however, is the delay of the impact. To put it bluntly, you will have to wait up to several hours for this drug to work if you decide to take it together with grapefruit-based products. It is strongly suggested you consume similar fruits, because they do not cause the same kind of reaction.
You must also avoid fatty foods, including cheese, avocados, fries, sausages, chocolate, and nuts, among many others. They don’t really cause any side-effects, but they also can severely delay the drug’s onset. Always avoid these types of foods, especially if you plan on having intercourse later in the day.

Honestly, I have been on and off ED since my early thirties. I loss all the confidence I had, became severely depressed, and believe it or not – that made it even worse. I have found myself avoiding intimacy, being afraid of commitment, the whole nine yards. Even though I had some steamy moments with gorgeous ladies, my penis was still semi-limp. Thank God, I have found Tadalis. I took 20 mg. pill an hour before sex and I was as hard as a f**king rock. Actually, I figured my length/girth have also improved for some reason.

Freddy userpic

I had awful erections (about 70% hard), quick ejaculations (never lasted more than a full minute). My doctor suggested taking this drug (Tadalis, not the pricier ones). I took the 10 mg. dosage and within two hours tried to initiate my first intercourse. I was very hard, but the whole experience was not pleasurable and lasted, once again, no longer than a minute. Next morning, I woke up with a very strong erection, had sex with my SO, lasted full 8 minutes (my best in YEARS). This drug really works…

Jason userpic

Decided to go with a cheaper version, Tadalis. Started taking 10 mg. doses only when I was about to have sex. In my experience, it takes anywhere from one to two hours for the dose to really hit. It lasts one day or two days, although I’m starting to notice it not working as well as it once was. Then I tried the 20 mg. dosage, and everything has changed. I was ready to bang all day long. Tadalis fixed me completely, what a shocking turn of events. And there I was, thinking I was a lost cause!

John userpic

Started with 20 mg., suffered from blurry vision and loss of balance. Literally fell off my treadmill two times in a row. Luckily, I didn’t break anything. Alright then. I have decided to try 10 mg. dose, it was a last-ditch resort basically. Whadda you know – this worked for me. These 10 mg gave me a great erection with no visible side-effects. Now I feel like million bucks. Maybe I should just switch to 5 mg. permanently? Maybe my ED problem wasn’t as severe as I thought? Maybe I need a little push and that’s it?
