Tadalafil is an FDA-approved erectile dysfunction pill that helps men with ED get and keep harder erections. Tadalafil is the generic equivalent to the brand name drug Cialis. Like Cialis or Viagra®, tadalafil is a PDE5 inhibitor that relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow to specific parts of the body, including the penis. Tadalafil is unique in that it can be used as-needed or once daily to be ready for sexual activity as it suits you.
Tadalafil (generic for Cialis) works by promoting a balance of enzymes necessary to produce and maintain an erection. When aroused, the penis produces nitric oxide plus an enzyme that normally gets your penis hard. Like all PDE5 inhibitors, tadalafil protects the enzyme from breaking down, which results in more blood flow in and less blood flow out. As-needed tadalafil can last for 24-36 hours, so it can support erections longer than other ED pills. Daily tadalafil, on the other hand, supports your sex life 24/7 with around the clock coverage.
Side effects most commonly associated with tadalafil include headaches, flushing, upset stomach, abnormal vision, runny or stuffy nose, back and muscle pain, nausea, dizziness, and rash. If you have any side effects that bother you or do not go away, talk to your provider. If you have a prolonged erection that lasts longer than 4 hours, you may have a medical condition called priapism, which requires prompt medical treatment. If this happens, seek emergency care immediately.
Daily tadalafil is taken once per day and comes in a low dose (2.5mg or 5mg dosage), which builds up in your system over time. This means that you can be ready for sex at any time instead of waiting for a pill to kick in.
The as-needed (or “episodic”) dose of tadalafil is taken when you need it, so you can be ready for the bedroom when you want to be. Take this pill before you plan to have sex and it can last up to 36 hours. It also comes in a higher dose than daily-use tadalafil (5mg, 10mg or 20mg dosages) and as such it is best to avoid use of as-needed tadalafil on several consecutive days.

When you start your online medical visit through the Hims platform, you will answer questions and consult with a medical professional licensed in your state, who can evaluate you and prescribe your dosage if they determine tadalafil is right for you.
