Review and Description
Tadacip is a generic brand for the drug Tadalafil. It is usually prescribed for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men. Tadalafil is also the only drug approved for a daily dose regimen for treatment of ED. ED is a condition affecting almost half of men above 40 years of age worldwide. In this condition men are unable to perform sexually due to a failure to achieve or maintain a penile erection for a sufficient amount of time. It is a physically and mentally debilitating condition.
The mechanism of Tadalafil basically induces sustained erection by vasodilatation, so a prior sexual arousal is necessary for Tadalafil to work. In the erectile tissues of the penis, the nitric oxide/ cGMP mechanism is responsible for maintaining blood flow and erection during sexual stimulation. The cGMP is consequently broken down by the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5). By inhibiting PDE 5, Tadalafil ensures a high concentration of cGMP and prolonged vasodilatation of the erectile tissues.
Tadacip is made and distributed by a pharmaceutical giant in India, Cipla Limited. It is one of the leading companies in India in the pharmaceutical sector and an US-FDA approved certified institution. Also, Cipla Limited was one of the first companies to market Tadalafil after its approval from FDA in the treatment of ED.
Tadacip seems a well known drug among online users and we found several reviews containing positive and neutral response from the customers.
William thought it was a good drug, but he was ‘somewhat disappointed in overall effectiveness.’ On the other hand, Matthew said the pills are great and though he was nervous about trying them for the first time, later he was comfortable, the pills worked fine and the effects lasted up to 48 hours.
Another user from a different site sgares an opinion that Tadacip really helped him when he started having erectile dysfunction problem and he also advises users to take the drug only under doctor’s supervision. From a third website, Michael says “ these tablets are okay, but without fanaticism could be better.”
The conclusion that can be drawn from the above user’s opinions is that Tadacip is well known in the consumer’s market as a safe drug, but it does not enjoy a very good reputation in terms of effectiveness. In some people, it has an excellent effect, but some people think it could have been better. Despite the fact that Cipla Limited is an established manufacturer, Tadacip does not enjoy an excellent reputation as expected.
Pricing and Dosage
The price of 1 tablet of Tadacip is approximate $ 2
Tadacip is available as oral film-coated pills. Normally the first dose of 10 mg is usually effective and is to be taken on an empty stomach around 1 hour before sexual activity.

How to Buy Tadacip (20 mg) Cipla Limited Online
The above websites sell Tadacip online, and it is also locally available in India and the other countries where Cipla exports its products. Nevertheless, Tadalafil is a ‘prescription only’ drug hence it is safer to consult your general physician before opting for Tadalafil.
How to Use
You are advised to seek proper medical advice before using tadalafil. Usually, a dose of 10 mg is prescribed. In the case of presence of hepatic or renal diseases or age more than 65 years, the dose should be decreased to 5 mg, as in these cases Tadalafil gets cleared more slowly from the body. Also, it should be borne in mind that the maximum dose once a day should not be more than 20 mg. In comparison to sildenafil, another PDE 5 inhibitor, Tadalafil has prolonged the effect of up to 36 hours so one pill can last for up to 2 days.
Tadalafil should be avoided in cases of the deformed penis, blood cell dyscrasias like leukemia or sickle cell anemia and downright contraindicated if you are a heart patient taking any nitrate-containing compounds as treatment.
Myalgias, especially backache and headaches are frequently reported side effects of Tadalafil. These effects wane off with time but seek help if they become worrisome. Other adverse effect reported are Blurred vision, dizziness, tinnitus, epistasis, dyspepsia, bloating and diarrhea.
The most severe adverse effects noted, though very rare are sudden visual loss or impairment, deafness, sudden angina and sustained a painful erection of more than 4 hours.
Being one of the first generic brands of Tadalafil to become available in India, Tadacip was manufactured and marketed by Cipla Limited. Cipla is one of the most reputable and established pharmaceutical giants of India along with being WHO-GMP certified and having a good market, both locally and overseas. Hence, the safety of Tadacip as a generic brand is verified. Also, Tadalafil ingredient is a well-researched substance. However, customer experience and feedback posted on controversial results about the actual efficacy of the drug. Some customers were happy with the results while others were less than satisfied. Customer reviews forms a paramount part of a drug’s review and even if a drug is safe to be consumed with a cost effective price, if it does not deliver what it promises, then it is better to look for an alternate. The market is full of other brands of Tadalafil with established efficacy. We, hence, give Tadacip a rating of 3 out of 5.
