Default Double dose of Cialis


A couple of dosing questions about Cialis.

I've used it with limited results. My questions are: Is it safe to double
the dose (I take 20mg)?
Also, since it is supposed to work for 36 hours, what about taking one pill
a night for three nights in a row? Harmful? Has anyone experimented with
this?

Default Double dose of Cialis


I have experimented with a double dose. It did nothing for me. It acted the
same as a normal dose. Jerry says that for him it was more effective than a
normal dose. Your reaction may differ. I have no side effects from Cialis
other than the need to shit twice as often. Not a problem. Others experience
muscle aches, acid reflux etc. If you suffer any side effects, a double dose
would most likely double the side effects.

No one can say if it is safe for you.

The package insert says you should not take it more than once a day.
Daily usage is "discouraged".

We are all still expermenting with this drug. Lately I have been taking 20mg
every 36 hours. It is working well.

I did just that; not good! The backache they mention in the TV ads; take
one a night for 3 nights and talk about a back-ache. Hurts like hell.
Try every other night. Trust me.

Was that for a 10 or 20 MG tablet? Also, is it ok to cut a 20 MG
tablet in half?

I'm surprised at the number of people doing just that. Like many, I found
that 20mg was just a little too much.

Hummm... 20mg daily, they must be thinking of screwing and not about doin'
math!

Remember, men, which end your mind is located on!

Sorry to preach here but........

Cialis has a half life of 17 hours.

In other words, 50% is left after 17 hours.

That means that you have 5mg of a 10mg dose in ya' after 17 hours.

You still have 25% or 2.5mg after 34 hours (2 x 17) from that same one half
tab.

You still have 13.5% or 1.25mg after (3 x 17) 51 hours, which just a pinch over
48 hours, which is two days.

Lets round that off to 37.5% per 24 hours to make the mental arithmetic a bit
easier.

OK, you takes 10mg the first day.
10mg the second + the 3.75 left in 'ya from the day before
10mg the third + 5.16 left over
10 on 4th + 5.68
10 on 5th + 5.88
10 on 6th + 5.96
10 on 7th + 5.98
10 on 8th + 5.99
10 on 9th + 6.00

The increases after the 9th day are so small it makes no sense to count them
but they will slightly increase.

So if you take 10mg per day for 9 days, you are in effect taking 16mg on the
9th day and beyond.

If you take 20mg per day for 9 days, you are taking 32mg per day and it might
take a day or so longer to level off.

Remember "Your mileage may vary!"

The older you are and how bad your liver is, will make Cialis clearance
(removal) slower.
