Cialis Dosage

For most people with ED, the recommended starting dose of Cialis is 10 mg, taken one hour prior to sexual activity. The maximum recommended dose is 20 mg. The Cialis dosage your healthcare provider recommends will depend on any other medical conditions you may have, among other things. For Cialis to work properly, you must take it exactly as prescribed.

An Introduction to Cialis Dosage

The dose of Cialis® (tadalafil) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The condition being treated
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may be taking.
     
As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
 

What Dose of Cialis Is Prescribed for Erectile Dysfunction?

The recommended starting dose for treating erectile dysfunction is Cialis 10 mg, taken one hour prior to sexual activity. However, you may take the medication anywhere from 1 hour to 36 hours before sexual activity. Depending on how well it works and whether you experience any side effects, your healthcare provider may increase or decrease your Cialis dosage. The maximum dose is 20 mg.
 
Alternatively, Cialis can be taken on a daily basis (every single day, whether you plan sexual activity or not). For this use, the recommended dose is Cialis 2.5 mg once daily, taken at the same time each day (it does not matter when you plan to have sexual activity if you take Cialis this way). If the 2.5-mg daily dosage does not seem to be working well enough, your healthcare provider may increase the Cialis dose to 5 mg every day.
 
Lower dosages may be recommended for men with kidney or liver problems.
