Nowadays the pharmaceutical market is abundant with generics. Viagra has probably hundreds of generics, Cialis has fewer, but you will be also faced with manifoldness in brick-and-mortar and (especially) in online pharmacies.

Cialis Black is generic Cialis with a tempting name. Some sellers claim that it contains fantastic 800mg of the active agent. How does it actually differ from the original version? Should you buy it?

Tadalafil – Active Agent of Cialis and Cialis Black

Tadalafil is a powerful selectively reversible inhibitor of phosphodiesterase of the fifth type, an enzyme that is found in the cavernous body, smooth muscles, and other organs and parts of the human body.

Tablets are recommended to be taken 15-25 minutes before the start of sexual intimacy. It should always be remembered that speed of absorption depends on fatty food, fatigue, psychological state and many other factors. Given the fact that the drug acts for 36 hours, most men take pills in advance (one hour before sex).

The over 36-hour effect of the drug, which is caused by a long half-life (17.5 hours), is especially important for young patients with high sexual activity.

This drug should not be consumed in the following circumstances:

  1. the use of other similar drugs from the group of PDE5 inhibitors;
  2. simultaneous use of nitrates, popular medicaments for treating heart diseases (particularly for angina attacks), these include nitroglycerine, isosorbide dinitrate, etc.;
  3. severe non-tolerability to tadalafil or any other components of the remedy;
  4. severe diseases of the heart, blood vessels and problems with the circulatory system;
  5. hepatic or renal failure of high severity;
  6. uncontrolled high or low blood pressure, arrhythmias (in serious cases);
  7. a patient has suffered a myocardial infarction or stroke in the period of six months before starting the anti-ED treatment.

Features of Ordinary Cialis

This medication was originally released by Eli Lilly and Company (Indianapolis, Indiana, US). It was approved in 2002 by the European regulators and got the FDA’s approval in 2003.

The medicine comes in three traditional dosages: 2.5mg, 5mg, 10mg, and 20mg. The first two doses may be used an everyday basis, e.g., a patient can take them permanently, 1 pill per day, preferably at the same time. Interestingly that 5 mg can be taken both daily and on demand.

Features of Cialis Black

This is a generic version of the previously reviewed drug. It also contains tadalafil as the key pharmaceutical substance.

You can often hear that Cialis Black contains 800mg of the active component. That’s not true, pure tadalafil in such amount would bring extreme harm or even kill a human. Actually, producers have enriched its formula with some herbs and other components assisting the principal ingredient.

Obviously, this drug cannot be administered on a daily basis, as the amount of the active agent in it is too high.

Other peculiarities of Cialis Black:

  • Its producers claim that it works more than 36 hours.
  • It has no relation to the branded US product.
  • In fact, it contains just about 80mg of tadalafil. Hence it can be concluded that the tab includes roughly 720mg of plant-based and other components.
  • The official name of one of the versions of Cialis Black is Tadala Black (tadalafil tablets 80 mg).

Side Effects of these Drugs

These medicines have identical side effects (which are also similar to those of Viagra). They do not necessarily occur in each person who takes Cialis or its generic counterpart. There is just some probability of occurrence of each of them, which is usually less than 10%. So, most gentlemen tolerate tadalafil well, without any undesirable reactions from the body.

Bear in mind that the full list of the drug’s adverse events is still under research. Surely, most of them are well-known, but unexplored ones may also be present. The most frequent side effects include headache, backache, fainting, dizziness, stomach problems, and face redness. Overdose remarkably increases the risk of side effects. This is generally associated with the fact that Cialis is a vasodilator, which has a potent effect in the genital area, and minimal effects in other body areas. However, when a dosage is large, the vasodilating effect potentiates and a male can experience sharp drop in arterial pressure, severe headache, long-lasting and painful erection (priapism) and several other highly unpleasant effects. So be careful and reasonable, use the product only as indicated in the leaflet which is always inserted in the package. 

Takeaways

Cialis Black contains highly elevated quantities of the active component (tadaladil). Therefore, it can be potentially harmful for health, especially when used in non-recommended dosages. This medication is used by some males; however, they probably have low sensitivity to tadalafil. Just remember that you should not use dosages that are higher than advisable ones.

If ordinary Cialis (tadalafil) doesn’t work for you, you can try other meds from the family of PDE5 inhibitors. Cialis Black may also be an option however, it is enriched with herbal components which may be unsuitable for some persons.
