The first step is to talk with your GP to see whether Cilatil® is right for you. Your doctor will have had similar discussions with many men in the past, and you should not feel uncomfortable chatting about problems with getting an erection. Your doctor is there to help, and a chat with them is the only way to get you started on Cilatil® and on your way to taking back control of your sex life.
There are three different dosage options, and your doctor will decide what is right for you based on their judgment and your personal choice.
For on demand dosing (10 mg and 20 mg), you can take the pill before sex and it may kick-in as early as 30 minutes and should take affect between 30 and 60 minutes. It is recommended that you take the pill no more than once a day, and it is not for continuous daily use. 10
For once-a-day dosing (5 mg), for patients who anticipate frequent use of Cilatil® (i.e., at least twice weekly). Your doctor can advise on the appropriateness of once-a-day treatment. When taken once a day, Cilatil® allows you to obtain an erection, when sexually stimulated, at any time point during the 24 hours of the day, allowing flexibility and intimacy at the same time. When taking Cilatil® once-a-day (5 mg), it may take up to 1 week for a full effect on erectile dysfunction.10
Do not take once-a-day dosing and on-demand dosing concurrently. 10
Once it’s decided Cilatil® is right for you, your doctor will give you a prescription. Always follow all directions given to you by your doctor or pharmacist carefully.
