Liquid Cialis: Dosage, Instructions & Uses

Cialis® is a prescription medication for erectile dysfunction (ED). It works by increasing the rate of blood flow to your penis, making it easier for you to get and maintain an erection when you’re sexually aroused. 

If you’ve searched for information about Cialis, you may have seen mentions of a liquid version of this medication. 

You may have also seen websites advertising liquid versions of Cialis and other popular drugs for treating ED.

While there isn’t a liquid version of Cialis in the United States, some compounding pharmacies (pharmacies that can prepare custom medication formulations) may be able to prepare a liquid version of Cialis for you to use if you have a valid prescription. 

Below, we’ve explained how liquid Cialis works, as well as this medication’s current availability in the United States. 

We’ve also talked about why you should be wary of online stores advertising liquid versions of Cialis, Viagra®, Levitra® and other ED medications. 

Liquid Cialis: The Basics

  • Cialis, which contains the active ingredient tadalafil, is a popular medication that’s used to treat erectile dysfunction.

  • The FDA has yet to approve Cialis in liquid form. However, if you have a prescription for Cialis, some compounding pharmacies may be able to create a liquid solution containing tadalafil, the active ingredient in Cialis.

  • Some vendors market liquid versions of Cialis and other ED medications for sale online, usually labeled as “research chemicals.”

  • These products aren’t approved by the FDA or intended for human consumption. While some may contain tadalafil, there’s no way to know if the labeled dosage is accurate, or if these medications are manufactured safely.

  • If you’d like to use Cialis to treat ED, you can access our FDA-approved ED medications after consulting with a licensed healthcare provider online. 

What Is Liquid Cialis?

Liquid Cialis is exactly what it sounds like -- the ingredient tadalafil, which is used in Cialis, sold as a liquid rather than as a tablet. 

Currently, Cialis is only available in the United States in tablet form. However, some pharmacies may offer liquid Cialis as a custom formulation for men who have issues that prevent them from using the tablet versions of Cialis or generic tadalafil. 

Liquid Cialis typically comes in a dropper bottle, with an applicator that you can use to measure and ingest each dose. 

Liquid Cialis Dosage & Use

Cialis and generic tadalafil come in a range of dosages, from 5mg to 10mg per tablet as-needed or as a daily-use medication in 2.5mg or 5mg per tablet.

If you’re prescribed Cialis at a certain dosage, it’s important to take the same dosage if you use this medication in liquid form.

Most compounding pharmacies will provide information about the dosage of your liquid Cialis on the label. Note that the dosage for liquid medications is usually specified per milliliter (mL).

To measure the correct dosage, you’ll typically need to use the dropper provided with your liquid medication. Fill the dropper up to the level required to provide the specific dosage prescribed by your healthcare provider.

To ingest liquid medication, gently squeeze the dropper to release the liquid into your mouth. It may help to aim the dropper between your tongue and your cheek to ensure that you don’t spill any of the medication. 

Be Wary of Liquid Cialis Sold Online

Cialis is a prescription medication, meaning you’ll need to talk to a licensed healthcare provider before you can legally purchase and use it to treat erectile dysfunction.

Despite this, some online merchants may offer Cialis in liquid form without any need for a valid prescription. This type of liquid Cialis is often marketed as a research chemical and sold with a disclaimer stating that it’s “for research use only” or “not designed for human consumption.”

We strongly caution against buying this form of Cialis, as products of this type have several key issues that may make them unsafe for your use: 

  • They’re unregulated. Unlike medications sold in the United States, these products are subject to few, if any, regulations. This means that the dosage of the medication may be completely different from what’s printed on the label.

    Although Cialis is a safe medication for most men, it can cause certain side effects and interactions. These may be more severe if your Cialis isn’t dosed correctly.
  • They may contain unlisted, unsafe ingredients. Since these products aren’t subject to any kind of oversight, some manufacturers may use ingredients that aren’t mentioned on the product’s label.

    The FDA has found that many sexual enhancement products sold online contain hidden ingredients. These ingredients may affect your results, harm your health or contribute to a higher risk of experiencing certain side effects.
  • They may be produced in unsafe conditions. Many of these products are produced in unlicensed facilities, often in developing countries that may not have strict regulations for producing medications safely.

    As such, many of these liquid medications marketed as research chemicals have a real risk of issues such as contamination with other chemicals or bacteria. 

Because of these issues, it’s far better to purchase Cialis legally with a prescription than to order an unlicensed version of liquid Cialis online. 

In Conclusion

Although Cialis is generally only available as a tablet, some compounding pharmacies may be able to produce a liquid version of Cialis if you have an medical issue that makes it impractical or difficult for you to take this medication in its standard dosage form. 

We offer Cialis, generic tadalafil and other ED medications online. If you’d like to use Cialis or a similar medication to treat ED, you can talk to a licensed healthcare provider and, if appropriate, receive a valid prescription for your preferred medication.
