Tadalafil (Cialis)

Tadalafil (Cialis) is a phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor that is used to treat impotence. It is manufactured by Eli Lilly & Co. Ltd. The standard dose is 10mg at least 30 minutes before sexual activity.

Tadalafil’s side-effects include headaches, facial flushing, indigestion, nasal congestion, transient disturbance of colour vision and raised blood pressure as well as back and muscle pain. Nitrates, including amyl nitrites (poppers) should not be used with tadalafil.

A reduced dose should also be used in patients taking protease inhibitors. The manufacturer recommends that patients taking protease inhibitors take no more than 10mg tadalafil, and not more than once in every 72 hours. Non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) are expected to reduce levels of tadalfil.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
