What is Cialis Super Active?
Cialis Super Active is a popular generic version of the brand drug Cialis, made by Eli Lilly and Company. Cialis and Cialis Super Active both contain exactly the same active ingredient, tadalafil. Tadalafil is the generic name for the active drug found in Cialis Super Active and Cialis. Generic versions of tadalafil are made by many different companies. Cialis Super Active is made by VIPRO Lifescience, Dharam Distributors, and Aurochem Laboratories, to name a few. Tadalafil is used to treat men who have problems getting or keeping an erection. This problem is called erectile dysfunction, or ED for short.
Some generic tadalafil formulations are combination therapy with dapoxetine. Dapoxetine is a medication used to treat premature ejaculation. Dapoxetine is not yet approved in the US, but it has been approved for use in several European countries including Finland, Sweden, Italy, and Germany.
How does Cialis Super Active Work?
Some erectile dysfunction is caused by blood flow problems. A normal erection happens from an increase in blood flow into the penis. For some men, the blood flow into the penis becomes less. This happens because there are bands of smooth muscle that surround the blood vessels leading into the penis. If the smooth muscles contract, the blood vessels are narrower and less blood can flow into the penis. The tadalafil found in Cialis Super Active is in a group of medications called phosphodiesterase-5 enzyme inhibitors, or PDE5 inhibitors. (Other PDE5 inhibitors include Viagra, and Levitra.) The PDE5 inhibitors stop the body’s signals to the smooth muscle around blood vessels that cause them to contract. This helps the blood vessels to widen, which allows more blood to flow into the penis and cause an erection.
It is important to know that taking Cialis Super Active will not automatically cause an erection. Sexual stimulation is still required for the erection to happen.
There are some important differences between Cialis Super Active and Viagra or Levitra. The most important is how long the effect of the medication lasts. Viagra lasts for up to 4 hours, Levitra lasts for up to 5 hours, and Cialis Super Active lasts for 15 to 35 hours. Because of this long action, Cialis Super Active has been called the “weekend pill.” There is also a difference in how quickly the drug starts to work. It takes 30 minutes for Viagra and Levitra to have an effect, but Cialis can take effect in as little as 15 minutes. Cialis Super Active may work even faster, due to its delivery system.
What does Cialis Super Active treat?
In the US, tadalafil is approved to treat erectile dysfunction (ED), benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs). It is also considered an orphan drug used to treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Tadalafil is also used off-label by body builders. Tadalafil is believed to help improve blood flow everywhere in the body, which leads to better pumps in the gym. It is also believed to help with the prostate enlargement that often occurs when taking steroids, due to its beneficial effects on the prostate.
What makes Cialis Super Active different?
Cialis Super Active has a different formulation than other Cialis or tadalafil products. The active ingredient is still the same, but the delivery system is different. Cialis Super Active has the tadalafil inside a gel. This gel is contained in a capsule that is taken by mouth. The gel may allow faster absorption than a hard pill, which is why Cialis Super Active may give faster action than other forms of the drug.

For men with BPH, the dosing is different. The normal starting dose is 5 mg daily, to be taken at a scheduled time without regard to sexual activity.
