Cialis has been licensed in
the UK for over a decade. It
was the third erectile dysfunction (ED)
prescription medication of its type to receive a UK license, after Viagra and Levitra. Its prolonged duration of action and the option to take a low
dose daily tablet have led to Cialis becoming increasingly popular and being
more widely prescribed.
Cialis is the brand name for the medication created by Eli
Lilly in 2003. The active ingredient in Cialis is tadalafil and the composition
couldn’t be recreated, by law, until Eli Lilly’s production patent ended on 14th
November 2017. Now it can be produced and distributed by other drug
manufacturers, in the generic form of tadalafil.
Generic forms of any medication are medically identical to the
branded originals and are quality controlled to the same standards as the brand
name versions; they are just as safe and effective but generally cost much less.
