How to eliminate Cialis from the body

Cialis is FDA-approved for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. This drug can be used by men over 18 y.o. who have been diagnosed with ED. Cialis is also prescribed for benign prostatic hyperplasia. 

 

For treatment to be effective, it is essential to find the correct dosage, which depends on the dosing regimen. Under any regimen, Cialis provides the longest-lasting effect compared to other ED drugs, as it is excreted from the body for a long time. What influences the drug elimination rate, and what else do you need to know about Cialis? Read on.

Mechanism of action

The drug's effect is due to its active substance, Tadalafil, which belongs to the group of PDE-5 inhibitors. It is known that, in most cases, erectile dysfunction is caused by impaired blood supply in the penis. Often this happens because of the influence of a specific phosphodiesterase enzyme type 5. It causes constriction of the penis vessels and smooth muscle tension, which prevents blood flow. As a result of the disruption of blood supply, the cavernous bodies of the penis are not filled enough to provide a quality erection.

PDE-5 inhibitors, and Tadalafil in particular, inhibit phosphodiesterase action, resulting in vascular expansion and relaxation of the smooth muscles of the penis. These factors ensure normal blood flow and promote full erection. However, ED drugs only work when you experience sexual arousal and the brain signals increased blood flow to the genitals.

Cialis dosage and regimen

Cialis is the only PDE-5 inhibitor that can be used in two ways:

  1. If necessary - it must be used just before sexual intercourse. The tablet is taken at least 30 minutes before sex, and the allowed single dosage is 10-20 mg.

  2. The daily intake of Cialis involves the use of lower dosages of 2.5 - 5 mg. Some studies suggest that this treatment reduces the risk of side effects in prolonged use. In this case, it is recommended to take the pill at the same time to maintain a constant level of active substance in the blood.

The choice of Cialis regimen and dosage depends on such factors as the individual response to the active ingredient and the degree of your sexual activity. Lower doses are more easily tolerated, so if you have sex more than three times a week, you will be fine with daily Cialis. If you are less sexually active, taking a pill when necessary is more convenient.

How long does it take for Cialis to kick in

When can Cialis start to act? It depends on the dosing regimen and other factors. The main condition for the effectiveness of the drug is sexual arousal. Remember that Tadalafil is not a sexual stimulant. Depending on the regimen, the effect of the drug may begin:

·         After 30 minutes, if you take the drug as necessary. However, in some cases, it may take up to 2 hours.

·         Immediately if you take Cialis daily. However, for the blood to accumulate a therapeutic dose of the active substance, it may take several days from the beginning of treatment.

What determines the time of the action onset

Many factors influence how quickly Cialis starts to work, so the onset of action may vary from man to man. If you are taking the drug for the first time, assess your response to it to determine when it will take effect in your case. This time may depend on the following factors:

·         related diseases;

·         dosage;

·         age;

·         individual features;

·         your diet.

Thanks to the lasting effect, taking Cialis in any regimen gives you great spontaneity in your sexual life. In this case, the duration of action of the drug may vary in different men. It depends on the following factors:

·         dosage;

·         dosing regimen;

·         age;

·         liver and kidney function;

·         related diseases;

·         other medications that you take;

·         diet and lifestyle.

In older men, the duration of Cialis action is often increased. It happens since Cialis excretion is slowed because of liver and kidney function deterioration. 

Side effects

Side effects are possible during the use of Cialis. The most common adverse effects are:

·         headache;

·         nasal congestion;

·         upset stomach;

·         muscle pain;

·         back pain.

Muscle and back pain can occur 12-24 hours after taking Cialis. Usually, they pass within 48 hours. The more rare and serious side effects of Cialis include:

·         Visual impairment or sudden loss of vision.

·         Hearing loss or tinnitus.

·         Persistent painful erection that lasts for more than 4 hours.

·         Chest pain.

·         Swelling of lips, tongue, and throat.

·         Respiratory failure. 

Serious adverse effects require immediate medical attention because they may indicate a dangerous condition. 

How Cialis excretes

The half-life of Tadalafil is 17.5 hours. Most of the active ingredient is excreted with feces (61%) and kidneys (36%), so the condition of the excretory organs significantly affects the elimination time of Cialis. 

After you take a tablet, a complete elimination of the drug may take up to 2 days. If you take the med daily, its total elimination time can increase to 5 days. The following factors can influence the excretion speed:

 

·         dosage and regimen of intake;

·         liver and kidney function;

·         individual features;

·         age.

How dosage and dosing regimen affect Cialis elimination rate

In case you take the medication as needed, in a dosage of 10-20 mg, the peak concentration of the active substance in the blood is reached in approximately 2 hours after ingestion. Then the concentration of Tadalafil in the blood begins to decrease, and it will take about 36 hours to excrete the drug completely. 

If you use a daily regimen, then the therapeutic dosage of the drug in the blood is accumulated for 2-3 days and then maintained throughout the treatment. If you stop taking Cialis, the elimination will take place gradually within 3-5 days. 

How does the function of the liver and kidneys affect the excretion 

Since the liver and kidneys play a significant role in the excretion of Cialis, the condition of these organs significantly affects the rate at which the active substance is eliminated. Liver and kidney dysfunction can cause Cialis elimination to slow down, so inform the doctor if you have similar disorders. Often, severe liver and kidney damages require a dosage correction to avoid increased side effects.

How individual features affect the elimination

It is known that each of us has his own metabolism, which affects many processes in the body, including the absorption and elimination of drugs. In some, Cialis begins to function and is removed faster; in others, it takes longer. It is, therefore, essential to determine the individual response to Cialis and further focus on their individual characteristics within the framework of general recommendations. 

How age affects excretion

As we age, our metabolism changes and various chronic diseases impair the functions of the body's organs and systems. All these factors can change the time of elimination of the active substance.

Is it possible to accelerate the elimination of Cialis from the body

As you can see, the excretion time of Cialis largely depends on individual features that are difficult to correct. If you want the drug removed from your body, stop taking it and wait a while. Special tests will help to ensure that the active substance is completely removed. This may be necessary, for example, if you urgently need to start taking a drug incompatible with Cialis or switch to another PDE-5 inhibitor. 

Are there any ways to influence the elimination of Cialis? The most effective and proven way is specific medical manipulation, which is used in case of an overdose. Only it guarantees that Tadalafil will be removed from your body in the shortest possible time.  

There are also conditionally effective "home methods" suitable for general cleansing of the body and getting rid of toxins and drugs accumulated in the body:

·         Drink more water. Water helps stabilize kidney function and makes blood more fluid, improving blood flow and normalizing all processes in the body. It also eliminates toxins from the intestine. Use only purified water, bringing consumption volume to 1.5 liters daily.

·         Add more physical activity. Sport accelerates metabolism, which speeds up removing toxins and remains of medicinal products from the body. Lymph circulation is improved, which is responsible for the elimination of salts, toxins, and other substances not used in the organism. 

·         Stick to healthy eating. A healthy diet will help saturate the body with the necessary nutrients to improve the functions of different organs and systems. In addition, such a diet improves intestinal motility, contributing to faster elimination of toxins.

Conclusion

Cialis is very popular among men because it provides excellent spontaneity in sexual life. The long-lasting drug's effect is due to its long elimination duration, which can be influenced by such factors as age, liver and kidney condition, or individual characteristics. To completely eliminate the active substance of Cialis, you need to stop taking it and wait some time. In case of emergency, special medical manipulations might be required.
