Tadalafil works similarly to other erectile dysfunction medications, such as Viagra and Cialis. It works by relaxing the muscles and blood vessels in your penis, improving blood flow and making it easier to get and keep erections when you’re aroused. It is a type of medication known as a PDE-5 inhibitor, which blocks certain enzymes that can make it difficult to get an erection.
Tadalafil, as well as other erectile dysfunction treatments, only help you get an erection when you are sexually aroused. It does not give you an erection on its own.
Does Tadalafil make you last longer?
Yes, Tadalafil can help you last longer if you are finding it difficult to keep an erection during sex. However, it has no effect on how long it takes you to orgasm, so Tadalafil will not help if you are orgasming too quickly. If you are finishing too quickly, you may want to look into techniques on how to last longer in bed, or treatment for premature ejaculation.
How to take Tadalafil
You should take one tablet of Tadalafil at least 30 minutes to an hour before sex, to give the medication time to start working. If you have sex more than twice a week, you may want to try a lower daily dosage of Tadalafil (2.5mg or 5mg). With the lower dosages, you take it at the same time every day so the effects are always working, and you don’t need to take it just before having sex. This is useful for men who have sex often, or who enjoy spontaneous sex without having to remember to take a pill before having sex.
When taking Tadalafil, swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water.
For the best results, avoid eating a heavy meal or fatty foods before taking Tadalafil. These foods can slow down how quickly your body absorbs the medication, which can make it take longer to start working. Alcohol can also make Tadalafil less effective, and can increase the likelihood of side effects.
How long does Tadalafil last?
The effects of Tadalafil lasts for up to 36 hours after you take it, which is why it is sometimes called the “Weekend Pill”. This means that Tadalafil will help you to get an erection when you’re sexually aroused during this time frame, and not that you’ll have an erection that lasts for 36 hours.
Daily doses of Tadalafil are designed so the medication is always working, so you’ll be able to get an erection when you need one.
