Hi! Taking 5 mg daily cialis with some results, but not great.

This answer was rated:

Hi!
Taking 5 mg daily cialis with some results, but not great. Is it OK to occasionally boost an hour before by taking another 5 mg?

Or, is it best to not take daily and then take 2 - 4 of the 5 mg to get up to 10 mg - 20 mg. The 20 mg that I had been taking worked great.
Hello from JA
Only per your doctors direction.


It is one time a day.
And can go up to 20 mg, starting at 5.
Most people require 10.

Please let me know if you have further questions.
Please don’t forget a positive rating.

so, don't take 5 mg daily and boost with another 5 mg an hour before.


 


just take 2 - 3 of the 5mg an hour before so that I get 10 mg to 15 mg, correct?

NO it is one dose prior to anticipated activity.

Not multiple doses throughout the day.
But your doctor should be instructing you on this.

Please let me know if you have further questions.
