What does 5mg of Cialis do?

Cialis is a PDE5 inhibitor which controls the severity level of the erectile dysfunction and may roll back the disease. It is considered that the optimal dose of Cialis is 20 mg per day, however the manufacturer recommends to select an individual dose depending on the physiological peculiarities of the body.

The minimal dose of Cialis is 5 mg per day. According to the opinion of many men, it is a small dose, and it will not give the effect they expect. However, it is not true.

The main active ingredient of Cialis is Tadalafil. This ingredient acts regardless of the dose and a duration of the action does not differ during the use of 5 mg per day or 20 mg per day. It is explained by the fact that the half-life of Tadalafil is at least 17 hours1. It does not matter what the dose has been taken, this period will be required for your body. It means that taking 5 mg, the action of Cialis will last for 36 hours, and taking 20 mg, the action will last the same.

However, the intensity of the action may differ. The minimal daily dose of Cialis 5 mg acts softly and slowly. It perfectly works for elder men because it does not cause a load on the cardiovascular muscle and does not affect the blood pressure.

At the same time, the blood circulation will not be so intensive in the penis. The action may be started in 40-50 minutes, and erection will grow gradually. But you may not worry because the pharmacological action will help you to have a hard erection and have sex.
