Review and Description
Longis tablets are made up of the active ingredient Tadalafil, a substance used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (ED), benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and pulmonary artery hypertension. ED is a very highly prevalent condition especially in men over 40 years of age. With this condition men are unable to have satisfactory sexual intercourse due to the inability to achieve penile erection or maintain it long enough. This condition has a very negative impact on the physical and psychological health of those affected.
The mechanism of Tadalafil is that of phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor, similar to Sildenafil. In the erectile tissues of the penis, the corpus cavernosum, nitric oxide and cGMP both act together to increase blood flow and maintain erection during sexual stimulation. The cGMP is then broken down by PDE5. By inhibiting PDE5, Tadalafil maintains high concentration of cGMP and ensures continued erection. Moreover, compared to sildenafil, Tadalafil has a very long duration of action up to 36 hours. It has been nicknamed “the weekend pill”.
Longis is manufactured by Santa Pharma, a pharmaceutical giant based in Turkey. It is one of the oldest companies of Turkey and has a reputation to reckon with. It is a GMP certified company and has received many prestigious awards in Turkey.
Curiously, despite the reputation of its manufacturing company, there were no customer reviews about Longis tablets. Longis is a prescription requiring drug. It is possible that because of strict laws and rules of its manufacturing country, it is not sold online and hence no reviews and feedback by online purchasers were found. The safety and efficacy of Tadalafil is established and it was approved in 2003 by the FDA for treatment of ED. However, Longis is a generic drug with other unknown chemicals also making up its ingredients, so the safety of Longis is particularly unknown. Apart from this, the fact remains that, the efficacy and potency of any tablet can be vouched for only by its users. Adding to that, the ‘prescription only’ status of Tadalafil ensures that you should purchase Tadalafil only once it is prescribed and efficiency is testified by users.
Pricing and Dosage
The price of 1 tablet of Longis is approximately $10. Compared to other generic brands of Tadalafil available in the market, this price is quite high. It is available as film coated tablet of 20 mg strength.
The dose of Longis to be taken is usually 10 mg once before planned sexual activity. Titration of the dose is from as low as 5 mg to as high as 20 mg. Do not exceed 20 mg in a day.
How to Buy Longis 20mg Tadalafil Tablet Online
We did not find any online pharmacies selling Longis. This might be due to the fact that Tadalafil is a prescription requiring drug and the strict laws and regulations of Turkey prevent it from being sold online.
How to Use
As directed above, 10 mg of Tadalafil is usually sufficient for once. Being long acting, 1 tablet’s effect might last 2 days. Longis is to be taken on an empty stomach preferably and around 1 hour before the planned activity. Tadalafil is also approved for a daily low dose regimen; around 2.5 mg, unrelated to sexual activity, for the treatment of ED.
People who have kidney or liver disease, should decrease their dose of Longis as well as those who are above 65 years o f age. Also, any person suffering from heart disease and taking any medication containing nitrates should avoid Longis and see their doctor before doing so. A deformed penis, blood cell disorders like sickle cell anemia and leukemia also offsets the use of Longis.
Adverse effects most commonly associated with Longis are headache and myalgias especially back ache and muscle pains. These effects dissipate with time. Other more rarely reported effects are flushing of face, dizziness, stuffy nose, diarrhea and indigestion.
Some of the rarest, yet most hazardous effects are an erection lasting more than 4 hours, sudden loss of hearing or vision and chest pain.
Longis is a generic brand of Tadalafil being manufactured by Santa Pharma, one of the oldest and most reputable pharmaceutical giant of Turkey. We could not find any online reviews or expert opinions concerning the efficacy of this drug. Though it is easily available locally and in the countries where Santa Pharma exports its products, Longis is not sold online. However, it can be easily attributed to the strict rules and laws governing the manufacturing company and preventing it from being sold online. Nevertheless, only users can testify the safety and efficacy of a medication and Tadalafil is also a prescription requiring drug, hence you are advised to not only consult your doctor, but also look for actual patient reviews before opting for Longis. Otherwise, the consumer’s market is filled with other brands of Tadalafil at a much cheaper price than this medicine. We give it a rating of 2 out of 5.
