Tadalafil Daily (tadalafil) belongs to a class of medicines known as ‘PDE-5 inhibitors’. These can help men with erectile dysfunction by increasing the blood flow into the erectile tissue in the penis when aroused.
Tadalafil Daily comes in a 2.5mg or 5mg dose. Taken daily, it maintains a consistent level of tadalafil in the system to produce a spontaneous erection when aroused.
How to take it
- Take one tablet each day at roughly the same time.
- Tadalafil Daily should start taking effect within 3-5 days of use.
- Can be taken with or without meals.
- If you miss a pill, take it when you remember but never take more than one tablet within a 24-hour period.
- Avoid taking Tadalafil Daily with more than one or two units of alcohol as alcohol can limit its effectiveness.
- Never split a pill or increase your dose.
- Any changes to your treatment should be discussed with your doctor.
How it works
The active ingredient (tadalafil) relaxes the blood vessels in the penis and helps to increase blood flow into the erectile tissue.
Tadalafil Daily provides men with a low daily dose of tadalafil. By maintaining a regular level of tadalafil in the body, Tadalafil Daily works to help produce erections sufficient for sex, eliminating the need for sex to be planned around taking medication.
Tadalafil daily does not affect your sexual desire, but can improve your erection if you are sexually aroused. It can help to produce a firmer and longer lasting erection within 5 days of starting the treatment.
The majority of men will notice a firmer and longer lasting erection. If you find that Tadalafil Daily does not work, contact us to ask about changing to a different treatment.
Side effects are uncommon but can include headaches, light headedness, indigestion, stuffy nose, muscle aches.
Side effects from Tadalafil Daily tend to be less than those experienced when using the on-demand high-dose Tadalafil treatments.

Erectile dysfunction can be a sign of an underlying medical condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and hormonal conditions. It is important that you see your GP for tests for these conditions, as they increase your risk of heart disease or stroke.
Some men find counselling helpful as a means of exploring psychological causes for ED. If you wish to try counselling, then some sexual health clinics (also known as GUM clinics) offer this service, and your GP will also be able to direct you to your local services.
If Tadalafil Daily does not work for you after four weeks of use, contact us so that we can discuss your treatment options. If you do not tend to have sex more than twice a week, 'as needed' erectile medication might be more suitable for you.
