Impotent men can now take Cialis on a daily basis.

Eli Lilly's Cialis (tadalafil) has now been cleared for use on a daily basis (2.5 mg and 5 mg). With this new option, patients now have two choices—up to 36 hours of efficacy for use as needed and the new daily dosing. The Indianapolis firm added that the wholesale pricing of once-daily tadalafil will be comparable to that of use as needed. This means patients who have been taking two or more pills per week for use as needed should not experience higher treatment costs with the once-daily dosing.
