Tadacip is indicated for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men.
Each film-coated tablet contains Tadacip 20mg
Under normal circumstances, when a man is sexually stimulated, the penis
fills up with blood. When erectile dysfunction occurs, enough blood does
not flow to cause an erection. TADACIP, with Cipla, relaxes the penile
blood vessels when a man is sexually stimulated. This allows blood flow
into the penis, resulting in an erection. The erection subsides after
sex, just as it is supposed to in normal conditions. Please understand
that TADACIP is not a hormone or aphrodisiac, it works only when a man
is sexually stimulated.
Dosage and Administration
Use in adult men:
The recommended dose is 10 mg taken prior to anticipated sexual activity
and without regard to food. In those patients in whom TADACIP 10 mg does
not produce an adequate effect, 20 mg might be tried. Cipla may improve
erectile function up to 36 hours following dosing. Therefore, when advising
patients on optimal use of TADACIP, this should be taken into consideration.
The maximum recommended dosing frequency is once per day. Daily use of
the medication is strongly discouraged because the long-term safety after
prolonged daily dosing has not been established.
Use in elderly men:
Dosage adjustments are not required in elderly patients.
Use in men with impaired renal function:
No dose adjustment is required in patients with mild renal insufficiency.
For patients with moderate (creatinine clearance 31 to 50 mL/min) renal
insufficiency, a starting dose of 5 mg not more than once daily is recommended,
and the maximum dose should be limited to 10 mg not more than once in
every 48 hours. For patients with severe (creatinine clearance <30
mL/min) renal insufficiency on hemodialysis, the maximum recommended dose
is 5 mg.
Use in men with impaired hepatic function:
For patients with mild or moderate degrees of hepatic impairment, the
dose of TADACIP should not exceed 10 mg once daily. In patients with severe
hepatic impairment, the use of TADACIP is not recommended.

The most common side effects of Cipla are headache, flushing of the face
and upset stomach. Less common side effects that may occur are temporary
changes in color vision (such as trouble telling the difference between
blue and green objects or having a blue color tinge to them), eyes being
more sensitive to light or blurred vision. In rare instances, men have
reported an erection that lasts many hours. You should call a doctor immediately

rarely in men taking Cipla. Most, but not all, of these men had heart
problems before taking this medicine. It is not possible to determine
