Cialis (Tadalafil) Information

Cialis is a prescription only medicine taken by mouth for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. ED is a condition where the penis does not harden and expand when a man is sexually excited, or when he cannot maintain an erection. Cialis may help a man with ED get and keep an erection when he is sexually stimulated. Cialis must be used only under a doctor’s care.

Cialis does not:

  • cure ED
  • increase a man’s sexual desire or drive.
  • protect a man or his partner from sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. Speak to your healthcare professional about ways to guard against sexually transmitted diseases .
  • serve as a male form of birth control
  • Cialis is only for men with ED. Cialis is not for women or children. Cialis must be used only under a healthcare professional’s care.
