What is Vidalista Professional and Its Main Ingredient?
Vidalista Professional is a sublingual tablet form of the popular and high-quality Cialis, a medication for treating Erectile Dysfunction (ED). The active ingredient in Vidalista Professional is Tadalafil, which is known for its efficiency in treating ED. This medication is recommended for those seeking safe and affordable generics. Vidalista Professional is produced and sold by Centurion Laboratories, located in Gujarat, India.
One of the key features of Vidalista Professional is its sublingual form, which is placed under the tongue and dissolved without water. This makes it more effective than traditional tablets. Sublingual tablets were initially developed for angina treatment and are highly effective in emergencies due to their rapid action. They dissolve in the blood through the oral mucous membrane and then in the stomach, allowing some people to feel the effect within 15 minutes.
Vidalista is available in various forms, including sublingual tablets, tablets, and soft tablets, offering a choice for user preference.
Generics and Their Role in Medication
Generics are medications that contain the same amount of active ingredients as original drugs, offering similar efficacy and safety. Developed based on pre-confirmed effectiveness and safety of active ingredients, generics have a shorter development period and are available at lower prices. They undergo strict checks and trials by government institutions in each country and are approved for sale, ensuring reliability and confidence in their use.
Cialis and Its Importance in ED Treatment
Cialis, containing the active ingredient Tadalafil, is the latest developed ED treatment among the three types currently available in the Japanese market. Developed based on earlier Viagra and Levitra, Cialis has fewer side effects, is less influenced by food, and has a longer duration of effect. Cialis, also known as “weekend pill” abroad, has a long-lasting effect of 24 to 36 hours.
Cialis was developed and produced by Eli Lilly and Company and approved by the FDA in November 2003. In Japan, it was approved by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in July 2007. Designed for flexibility in sexual activity, Cialis can be taken in small doses once a day.
Tadalafil’s Uses Beyond ED
Tadalafil is also used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) symptoms and pulmonary arterial hypertension. For BPH, Tadalafil helps alleviate symptoms like difficulty starting urination, weak urine stream, frequent urination, and urgent need to urinate. Known as Adcirca, Tadalafil is effective due to its ability to relax smooth muscles of the prostate and bladder.

The Efficacy of Vidalista Professional
Vidalista Professional belongs to a class of drugs called PDE-5 (phosphodiesterase 5) inhibitors. Like Viagra and Levitra, it helps maintain higher levels of cGMP by inhibiting PDE-5, aiding in maintaining a satisfactory erection. While Viagra and Levitra have a similar chemical structure, Cialis’s unique structure makes it a recommended alternative for those experiencing side effects from the other two.
How to Take Vidalista Professional
1) Timing of Taking Vidalista Professional
Take 1 tablet of Vidalista Professional about 1 hour before sexual activity. The active ingredients are absorbed within 30-60 minutes, but the time to feel the effect varies greatly from person to person. It’s recommended to take it a few hours before sexual activity and not more than 1 tablet within 24 hours. Vidalista Professional is not significantly affected by diet but is best taken on an empty stomach.
2) Dosage of Vidalista Professional
The approved doses of Cialis in Japan are 5, 10, and 20 mg. It’s recommended to start with a small dose of 5 or 10 mg for the first use. The dosage can be adjusted based on individual response, but the maximum single dose is 20 mg. For those planning sexual activity at least twice a week, a daily dose of 5 mg can be taken, which can be reduced to 2.5 mg depending on the response.
Tadalafil for erectile dysfunction should only be used by adults over 18 years.
3) Duration of Effect

Precautions When Using Vidalista Professional
1) People with Chronic Diseases
Consult a doctor before using Vidalista Professional if you have heart disease, arrhythmia, angina, other heart diseases, high or low blood pressure, congestive heart failure, stroke, myocardial infarction, sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, hemophilia, leukemia, liver disease, kidney disease, stomach ulcer, pigmentary retinitis, penile deformation, or a condition preventing sexual activity.
2) People with Allergies
Before taking Vidalista Professional, inform your doctor or pharmacist if you have allergies. If allergic to the active ingredient tadalafil, do not take it and consult a pharmacist.
3) Contraindications and Precautions with Concurrent Use
Medication interactions can increase the risk of serious side effects. Do not combine Vidalista Professional with nitrates, pulmonary hypertension drugs like Riociguat, alpha-blockers, CYP3A4 inhibitors like ketoconazole or ritonavir, macrolide antibiotics, HIV protease inhibitors, hepatitis C virus protease inhibitors, mifepristone, sildenafil, or other ED drugs.
4) Avoid Grapefruit and Its Juice
Grapefruit and its juice contain furanocoumaric acid, which inhibits the gradual breakdown and elimination of tadalafil, increasing its absorption and duration in the body, potentially causing serious side effects. Lemons, which do not contain furanocoumaric acid, can be consumed while taking Vidalista Professional.
Avoid concurrent consumption of grapefruit and its juice with Viagra and Levitra as well.
