Tadalafil is a generic pharmaceutical drug, a stimulant (aphrodisiac) available in tablet form which is typically taken as an oral medication to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) problems in men. However, this drug can also be taken by women to boost their sex drive and treat other conditions as well.
In one of our blogs, we had already looked into what Tadalafil is and how it can help men with erectile dysfunction problems to boost their sexual desire and sex drive with their partner. We also mentioned its uses and how to take the tablet, as well as a few side effects of using the Tadalafil medication drug.
Here, we’re going to take a quick look at how long the Tadalafil tablet takes to work and how long can it last when taken prior to sexual intercourse.
Tadalafil for Erectile Dysfunction
Tadalafil is a medication drug that is given by professional doctors/physicians as a prescription pill to treat erectile dysfunction in males and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) conditions in both men and women.
It belongs to the class of medicines known as phosphodiesterase (PDE) type 5 inhibitors. Such drugs are mostly prescribed by professional health practitioners to patients to cope with erection and premature ejaculation problems. It also is an essential component present in various branded pharmaceutical drugs like Cialis, Alyq, Tadliq, Adcirca, etc.
Similar to Sildenafil and Viagra, Tadalafil is a prescribed drug for increasing sexual desire and lasting erections in males. It is a stimulant, an aphrodisiac that can help boost the level of the male sexual hormone called testosterone, and helps increase interest throughout sexual intercourse.
Tadalafil tablets are available in different dosages – 2.5 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg, and 40 mg – and are prescribed to persons according to their age and past medical conditions. Although Tadalafil can be purchased from over-the-counter (OTC) drug stores, however, this is not advised because of the side effects which can be caused by its excessive consumption.
When and How to Take Tadalafil?
As most males experience problems getting their sexual hormone level to function normally, they also cannot fully satisfy the excitement for sex drive with their partner. And, in turn, their partner may feel dissatisfied, too.
If the testosterone level is significantly lower than normal, the person may experience various conditions, such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, weak or short-lived erection, low sperm count, low sexual excitement, depressed mood, reduced energy, and other complications.
Not only that, but a low testosterone level may also be caused by not carrying out physical activities in the form of physical exercises, or due to increased body weight, habitual smoking, drinking alcohol and consumption of illicit drugs, etc. Also, a low testosterone level could be caused as a side effect from other consumable items, including foods and beverages, and medication drugs that are taken for longer periods of time.
Thus, to cope with such problems, Tadalafil is often prescribed by doctors/physicians to patients in low oral dosage and can be taken either on a daily basis or as needed. Tadalafil tablet is typically prescribed for oral intake, no more than once a day, and at least 17 hours before sexual intercourse.
Furthermore, depending on the person’s health conditions, the doctor/physician may increase or decrease the dosage. For this reason, doctors/physicians carefully examine the person’s health conditions, including his age, body weight, and past medical conditions before prescribing the dosage of the aphrodisiac drug.
Bear in mind, Tadalafil should be avoided if the person is using a nitrate drug for chest pain or heart problems because this medication drug could significantly decrease blood pressure.
How Long Will a Tadalafil Tablet Last When Taken Before Sexual Intercourse?
Tadalafil is basically a medication drug given to adults in small doses of 2.5 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg, and 40 mg, respectively, depending on the person’s age, weight, the severity of his health condition or medical history, etc.
When a person takes one Tadalafil tablet just before sexual intercourse, the effect of the drug can increase the sexual desire in the person, and therefore, allow the penis to stay erect for longer.
After taking Tadalafil, the effects of this medicine can usually last for 36 hours. It is also possible for the stimulant drug to last even longer, depending on the dose and the person’s bodily response to the aphrodisiac drug.
Now, depending on how fast the person’s body metabolizes the orally consumed drug, he may be able to get multiple erections after taking Tadalafil. However, it likely won’t help in allowing the person to last longer in bed. There has been no definitive research to prove if the consumption of Tadalafil can increase how long a person can be engaged in sexual intercourse during a given period of time. It also is possible for Tadalafil to not work again immediately after intercourse.
Normally, it may be difficult to get another erection right after ejaculating because the body isn’t prepared physically. This state of the male body is thus, known as the refractory period, and it may only last a few minutes but can last for as long as a few hours.
What to Know When Taking Tadalafil to Boost Your Sexual Excitement
Tadalafil drug is to be taken only after consulting a health practitioner, who can prescribe an appropriate amount to help boost arousal in the person’s sexual hormone with less chance of getting impacted by its side effects.
If Tadalafil is taken multiple times and on a regular basis, its side effects such as prolonged erection of the penis, backache, headache, myalgia, dyspepsia, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, or hypertension etc., can impact the person’s health conditions.
Tadalafil works as a potent medication drug that can assist in stimulating one’s sexual excitement and sex drive for several hours. However, it does come with side effects, too, and consuming too much of the drug could possibly cause adverse conditions in the body.
It is, therefore, advised to only take stimulant drugs such as Tadalafil, Sildenafil or Viagra, etc., that are prescribed by a qualified doctor/physician.
