Does Generic Cialis Work?

Cialis® (tadalafil) is a type of erectile dysfunction medication. It is also approved to treat enlarged prostate symptoms. Although the only version of this drug that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved is brand-name Cialis, some people believe a generic version can be bought online. However, there are no approved generic versions of this drug, as a patent protects it until at least 2016 (and possibly longer).
 
If you buy an unapproved version of Cialis from an overseas or other online pharmacy, you put yourself at risk of taking a drug that could be:
 
  • Fake
  • Contaminated
  • Expired
  • A different drug altogether
  • The wrong dosage (too strong or not strong enough).
     
This can leave you with valid questions, such as:
 
  • Does my generic Cialis work?
  • Is it safe?
  • How do I know I'm getting the right medication?
     
Because the "generic Cialis" sold online is not approved by the FDA, it has not been tested for safety or effectiveness. Until an approved generic version becomes available, you should talk to your healthcare provider about your options for erectile dysfunction treatment.
