What Is Cialis Generic & Can You Get A Discount?

WhatIsCialiSGeneric&CanYouGetADiscountWhile medicine isn’t a cure-all for every condition that people encounter over the course of their lives, in some cases, it can be a big help, even when the situation isn’t life-threatening. Into this category falls a class of drugs for treating ED, better known as erectile dysfunction. Many Americans in recent years are probably familiar, at least conceptually, with ED drugs, since the name “Viagra” has been floating around in popular culture for years.

But the truth is, not only can ED drugs help out Americans to live more satisfying lives, there’s more than one solution to the problem, and you might be able to pay less for it. Cialis generic is one of those alternatives.

What Is Cialis?

Cialis, and other ED drugs like the first and more widely known Viagra, are drugs that enable men with erectile dysfunction to more easily attain and maintain an erection by facilitating easier blood flow to the penis, which is the mechanism by which erections occur. Viagra, the most famous of the ED drugs, was first to market and still holds a commanding lead in the USA. However,

Cialis has already overtaken Viagra’s popularity in other parts of the world and is slowly but steadily eating away at the lead Viagra has in the USA. But why? What is it about this drug that already makes it more popular around the world?

The answer is longevity. Cialis is famously known around the world as “the weekend pill,” because the ED effects it brings can last anywhere from 36-72 hours, in other words, 2-3 days! Viagra, on the other hand, has a much shorter window of effectiveness, averaging four hours, but in some people lasting as long as 10.

The Generic Solution

Cialis generic is a lower-cost version of Cialis because it is not the first, official branded version that hit the market. As with other medicines, such as Aspirin or Tylenol, the ability for one company to use and brand the formula expired. Now any company can sell Cialis generic, also known by its technical name, Tadalafil. Because it’s not using the original company branding and packaging, but is the same formulation, Cialis generic is cheaper than its “factory original” counterpart, despite being just as effective.

If you’re interested in getting Cialis generic for an even lower cost, try using a pharmacy discount card. This way you can get even more savings, shopping smart, with Cialis generic, while getting a further discount from a card like USA Rx.
