Brief Answer:
Recommended to take cialis daily for maximum efficacy

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for the query

The ideal cialis dosage for maximum efficacy for treatment of Benign Prostatic hyperplasia and Erectile dysfunction is to take 5mg daily.
It will take up to 2-4 weeks to show improvement in symptoms.
Early morning erection while on cialis is completely normal and nothing to be worried about. However, if you develop painful erection, erection lasting more than few hours, chest discomfort/pain etc while on cialis, discontinue the medication and follow up with your doctor immediately.
Regarding the cost of cialis, Please be advised to check with your insurance company if they cover the cost of cialis. There is also a cialis savings card available in their official website which can help reduce the cost.

Hope this answers your question
