Tadalafil 5 mg and 20 mg
Film Coated Tablets for Oral Use
Product leaflet summary
Tando is a treatment for adult men with erectile dysfunction. This is when a man cannot get, or keep a hard, erect penis suitable for sexual activity.
Dosage and Administration
The recommended starting dose is one 10 mg tablet before sexual activity. However, you have been given the dose of one 20mg tablet as your doctor has decided that the recommended dose of 10mg is too weak. You may take a Tando tablet at least 30 minutes before sexual activity. Tando may still be effective up to 36 hours after taking the tablet.
Are allergic to tadalafil or any of the other ingredients of this medicine.
Are taking any form of organic nitrate or nitric oxide donors such as amyl nitrite, this is a group of medicines (“nitrates”) used in the treatment of angina pectoris (“chest pain”). Tando has been shown to increase the effects of these medicines. If you are taking any form of nitrate or are unsure tell your doctor.

Recently had a stroke within the last 6 months.

Are taking riociguat. This drug is used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension (i.e., high blood pressure in the lungs) and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (i.e., high blood pressure in the lungs secondary to blood clots).
