What this meant was other pharmaceutical companies could manufacture their own male impotence treatment containing Tadalafil, Cialis’ primary active ingredient.

Generic Cialis Now Available at Medical Specialists® Pharmacy!

Generic CialisMedical Specialists® Pharmacy are delighted to announce we now stock Generic Cialis, also known as Tadalafil/Generic Tadalafil, saving patients a huge amount of money in the process!

Along with Generic Viagra (Sildenafil), Medical Specialists® boast an impressive range of treatments for male impotence that won’t break the bank, especially vital during increasing times of hardship.

What is Cialis?

For those men who are loyal to the more familiar Viagra and not clued up about Cialis, Cialis is the brand name of the drug Tadalafil and is popular with men seeking a longer-lasting erectile dysfunction treatment. Cialis 36 hours (10mg and 20mg) is taken 15-20 minutes before sex and can last up to 36 hours, giving it the infamous moniker ‘the weekender’.

Cialis Daily (2.5mg and 5mg) are taken daily – as the name suggests – and can help men achieve an erection any time of the day or night, negating the need to pre-plan and time when to take the medication in relation to sex.

When was Cialis released?

In 1998 after Viagra become a huge global success, more and more men started to come forward seeking help for a subject previously spoken about sparsely – erectile dysfunction. Soon, the stigma broke away as men began to realise erectile dysfunction was a genuine health problem that needed to be treated, whether this be through counselling, stopping smoking, or through medications such as Viagra.

Pfizer’s Viagra had no competition for 5 years, until pharmaceutical Eli Lilly gained approved for Cialis from the European Medicines Agency in 2002, then by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2003, to treat erectile dysfunction.

Cialis has since proved incredibly successful, reaching $2.16 billion in worldwide sales in 2013 and has amassed total global sales in excess of $14 billion since 2003. Around 45 million men across the globe have been treated with Cialis.

The difference between Cialis and Generic Cialis/Tadalafil

The patent for Cialis expired on 14 November 2017, meaning that generic manufacturers can produce ‘Generic Cialis’. The drug companies however must prove that their Generic Cialis/Tadalafil is bio-equivalent to the branded Cialis, meaning the active ingredient is identical and provides men with the same effects.

Therefore, the main differences between Cialis and Generic Tadalafil will be the packaging will obviously be different as they are emanating from various drug companies, the look of the pills may be slightly different in shape, and Generic Tadalafil will be available at a far lower price than the branded Cialis.

How does Generic Tadalafil work?

The active ingredient in Tadalafil is a type of drug known as a PDE-5 (phosphodiesterase type 5) inhibitor. All the main drugs (Viagra, Cialis, Levitra and Spedra) used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction function in a similar way, increasing blood flow to the penis required for an erection, by allowing the blood vessels to expand so more blood can pass through.

How can I obtain Generic Tadalafil?

Men suffering with erectile dysfunction can complete an online consultation with Medical Specialists® Pharmacy, where one of the GMC-registered Doctors will thoroughly assess the consultation and write an in-house private prescription, to be dispensed by our in-hour pharmacy. The medication should arrive to you (if in the UK) before 1pm the very next day via Royal Mail Special Delivery. Prices from as little as £0.24* a tablet.
