Comments of the men with ED
For me this medicine works in the best way against ED. It passed clinical trial some years ago and is appropriated for daily usage. Having taken it I felt like in my 20s again. I regret my insurance does not pay for daily usage, but I take 20 mg dose when I need it (so six dosages monthly). It is enough for me. I have no side effects, with the others medicines I had them, the effect continues about 2 days after having taken it. The erection is like a natural one. It is effective for around 40-50 minutes after taking, and it is necessary to take in on empty stomach.

You should take your recommended dose, never take more than prescribed for you, the increased dose means increased risk of side effects development.
Cialis in low doses 2.5 mg and 5 mg tablets is very convenient because for many patients Cialis is prescribed on a daily basis. Special groups of patients including males with serious kidney or liver impairment, old patients are usually prescribed the lowest doses of Cialis.
Before taking this medication you should consult your doctor who will determine the right dose of Cialis for you. In some cases Cialis may be contraindicated, ask your doctor for more information.
