Why Cialis®?

The no-planning pill

Once-a-day Cialis® stays in your system for longer than other ED medications so you can be ready for sex any time.

ED? NBD

Cialis® is FDA approved and has been helping guys treat erectile dysfunction for years.

How Cialis® works

Inhibits PDE5

Cialis® is an oral ED medication that works by suppressing an enzyme in the body called PDE5.

Increases blood flow

When PDE5 is suppressed, blood is able to flow more freely through the body—including to the (you guessed it) penis.

Gets you hard

More blood flow to the penis means harder, more satisfying erections once you’re sexually stimulated.

About Cialis®

What is Cialis®?

Cialis® is an FDA-approved oral erectile dysfunction prescription medication that helps men with ED get and keep harder erections. Cialis® is the brand name of the drug’s generic version, tadalafil. Like Viagra® and Levitra®, Cialis® is a phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor (PDE5 inhibitor) that improves flow through the blood vessels to specific parts of your body, including the penis. With daily use, Cialis® helps you be ready for sexual activity whenever the mood and stimulation arise.

Good to know

How to take Cialis®

Follow the instructions and medical advice of your provider when taking Cialis®. Hims offers access to once-a-day Cialis® in a 5mg tablet dose. Typically, this dosage of Cialis® is taken once a day at the same time, no matter how often you have sex. It only takes 4-5 days for daily Cialis® to become fully effective and you can expect peak concentration in as little as 30 minutes. Cialis® can be taken with or without food, so taking it around the same mealtime is an option.

Common Cialis® side effects

Common side effects of Cialis® include headaches, flushing, upset stomach, abnormal vision, stuffy nose, angina (chest pain), back pain, muscle aches, indigestion, hearing loss, and rash. If you have persistent side effects, talk to your health care professional. If you have a prolonged erection that lasts longer than 4 hours, you may have a serious medical condition called priapism. Other rare serious side effects are low blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, heart attack, heart failure, allergic reaction, or NAION (sudden vision loss). If any serious side effects occur, seek medical attention immediately.

Frequently asked questions about Cialis®

What is in Cialis®?

Cialis® is the brand name of tadalafil. In addition to the active ingredient, tadalafil, Cialis® contains the following inactive ingredients: croscarmellose sodium, hydroxypropyl cellulose, hypromellose, iron oxide, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, sodium lauryl sulfate, talc, titanium dioxide, and triacetin.

Is Cialis® used to treat enlarged prostate?

Yes, Cialis® is FDA-approved to treat enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH). This condition is common in men over the age of 50. However, if you are suffering from symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia, such as a constant need to urinate, you should seek in-person treatment from a healthcare provider. Hims only offers access to online consultations for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

How long does it take for Cialis® to work?

When taken as-needed and at a higher dose, Cialis® typically starts working within 30-60 minutes, so you will need to take it about an hour before sex to give it time to kick in. However, when Cialis® is taken daily and at a lower dose, it may take a few days to build up in your system. After four or five days of daily use, you may find that you are able to have successful sex at your leisure.

How long does Cialis® last?

The effects of Cialis® can last up to 36 hours, but the highest amount of the drug can typically be found in the bloodstream between 30 minutes and six hours after taking Cialis®. However, because Cialis® remains in the body for longer than other ED medications, it is important not to take Cialis® more than once every 24 hours.

Does Cialis® have any food or drug interactions?

Like many other medicines, Cialis® should not be taken in combination with nitroglycerin/nitrates for heart problems or hypertension (high blood pressure), riociguat, alpha-blockers, grapefruit juice, sildenafil, vardenafil, Adcirca®, ritonavir, doxazosin, or antifungal medicines.
Additionally, the following drugs can increase the effects of Cialis® by altering the drug's metabolism: ketoconazole, erythromycin, itraconazole, rifampin, and clarithromycin.

Who should not take Cialis®?

You should not take Cialis® if you are taking any of the medicines listed above or have any of the following health conditions: moderate to severe liver disease, moderate to severe kidney disease, retinitis pigmentosa, sickle cell anemia, or certain heart problems such as advanced congestive heart failure or a recent myocardial infarction. Be sure to discuss your medical history with your provider.

Does Cialis® treat anything other than ED?

Yes. Cialis® is approved to aid the treatment of the following medical issues: pulmonary arterial hypertension (if taken without nitrates) and enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH).

What won't Cialis® do?

Cialis® will not protect you against sexually transmitted diseases, provide sexual stimulation, make your penis bigger, treat premature ejaculation, or cure other diseases than for which it was prescribed (eg, peyronie’s disease).

How much does Cialis® cost?

Hims offers a daily version of Cialis® through our online platform from $958 per month. Hims also offers generic tadalafil starting at a price of $82 per month. Tadalafil contains the same active ingredient as Cialis®, but is available at a lower price. Learn more about the cost of Cialis®.
