The weekend pill

Tadalafil is also known as the weekend pill because it can remain effective for up to 36 hours. If you take a tablet on friday night, it can still work on Sunday morning. This extended duration has made Tadalafil a popular choice for many.

How does Tadalafil work?

For ED Problems, Tadalafil's active ingredient (Tadalafil) temporarily boosts blood flow to the penis, helping you achieve a firmer and longer-lasting erection when you get sexually excited.

Remember, Tadalafil does not increase your sexual desire. If you're dealing with low libido, it's best to consult your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Is Tadalafil safe? 

Yes, Tadalafil is safe & well-tolerated ED medication. However, some men may experience side effects like,

  • Headaches,
  • Flushing
  • An upset stomach

If you get these, talk to your doctor.

  • Do I have erectile dysfunction because I am old?

    Erectile dysfunction is more common in older men, particularly aged 40 or above. This is because older men usually have pre-existing conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and obesity, which all contribute to erectile dysfunction. The older you get, the lower your testosterone levels become as well, which also contributes to erectile dysfunction.

  • Can being tired cause erectile dysfunction?

    Yes. When you are tired you have a decreased sex drive (libido), so it is harder to gain and maintain an erection. This also happens when you are lacking in fitness.

  • Can masturbating cause erectile dysfunction?

    If you are masturbating several times in a short period of time, then yes you may experience difficulties in getting and maintaining an erection.

  • Can cycling cause erectile dysfunction?

    Excessive cycling can indeed cause erectile dysfunction, especially if your seat is applying pressure to your testicles. This applies pressure to the nerves in the bottom of your penis, which contributes to erectile dysfunction. The same thing can occur if you wear excessively tight clothing for long periods of time consistently.

  • How can I treat erectile dysfunction?

    This is dependent on the cause of ED, so it is very important to consult your GP to identify the cause. Once the cause is known, it is easier to suggest a treatment plan. Treatment options include medicine and lifestyle changes.

  • Is erectile dysfunction reversible?

    This depends on the cause of erectile dysfunction. If it is due to underlying medical problems, it is often quite difficult to completely reverse the erectile dysfunction, however there are many treatment options available to help live with the condition.

    Some causes are reversible such as excessive drinking and smoking, excessive cycling and excessive masturbation.

  • Can taking vitamins help my erectile dysfunction?

    Vitamins should not be used as the main treatment for erectile dysfunction as there is not much evidence for it. However, vitamin C, vitamin E and vitamin B complex are believed to assist in men suffering with ED. Vitamin C and vitamin B complex are thought to help with blood flow and vitamin E is thought to help with producing testosterone, which may lead to improvement of ED.

  • Which drug is best for erectile dysfunction?

    All erectile dysfunction drugs work in the same way, but they have slightly different properties. Different drugs work differently for everyone, so individuals will have different preferences. First line treatment in most cases is sildenafil, which is also the active ingredient in Viagra. Another popular drug is Tadalafil for erectile dysfunction, which is the active ingredient in Cialis.

  • Can I take Viagra if I have diabetes or cardiovascular disease?

    Yes. It should not be a problem to take Viagra or any other ED treatments if you have diabetes or cardiovascular problems. You must check that any of your current medications do not interact with the ED treatment that you would like to buy. Our online consultation will guide you through checking if any of your current medications interact with the ED treatment, you must be sure to answer all questions honestly.

  • Will just taking my ED tablet give me an erection?

  • Does having ED mean that there is something wrong with my health?

  • What dose of ED medication should I take?

    It is advised that you start off at the lowest dose available and see how well that works. Take a stronger dose the next time if the starting dose was insufficient.

  • Can I split my tablet to save money?

    This is not recommended by the manufacturer but it is commonly done. Bear in mind that splitting a pill will also half your dose.

  • Do ED tablets always work?

    ED Pills do work in most men. However if the penile nerves are damaged or blood circulation is restricted, the tablets may not always work. Men with low testosterone levels may also be resistant to tablet treatment. If one tablet does not work it is worth trying a different drug. If your symptoms persist you should consult your GP.
