Am I eligible for the Cialis patient assistance program?

You could receive your Cialis without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for Cialis assistance. We review each Cialis assistance program application individually, although the main factors considered by most programs are:

  • US residency
  • Combined household income
  • Insurance status
General income criteria
  • Up to $36,000
  • Up to $50,000
  • Up to $100,000

How do I apply for the Cialis patient assistance program? 

We make it as simple as possible to apply for the Cialis patient assistance program. Fill in our enrollment application, and tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Cialis. We’ll ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This essential information is required by the pharmaceutical companies who ship your medication.

We will determine that you may be eligible for the Cialis patient assistance program. If you are, we’ll handle the application process for you and will help to enroll you in the program, as well as requesting your Cialis medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is Prescription Care a Cialis coupons provider?

Prescription Care is not a Cialis coupon, a Cialis discount card, or a Cialis copay card. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Cialis patient assistance program. This means that we don’t offer printable Cialis manufacturer coupons, Cialis discounts, Cialis savings cards, or free Cialis samples. Obtaining your medication through the Cialis patient assistance program will mean that you’ll likely save more, with the only cost being $49 each month. 

Can Prescription Care help me get Cialis if I have insurance? 

Remember that every application for the patient assistance program is judged individually on its own merits. Applicants that don’t have insurance may still be able to be accepted onto the program. This is also the case if your insurance company won’t pay for your Cialis medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. 

How much is Cialis with insurance?

How much you’ll have to pay for Cialis will vary depending on your healthcare plan. To 

understand the potential cost, speak to your healthcare provider or pharmacist. 

Remember, if you’re approved for assistance, you’ll likely save more if you get your Cialis 

medication through Prescription Care.

How much does Cialis cost without insurance?

Cialis prices without insurance can vary depending on how many pills you purchase, the 

strength of the pills, and where you buy them from. As a guide, you can expect to pay 

between the following for your Cialis pills:

  • 2.5mg – from $380.96 for 30 each
  • 5mg – from $380.96 for 30 tablets
  • 10mg – from $2,186.24 for 30 tablets
  • 20mg – from $515.06 for 5 tablets

What is Cialis?

Cialis is a medication used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) in adult men. Cialis can be taken in two ways. You can swallow a pill before you plan to have sex. The effects of Cialis can last up to 36 hours, so this can give you enough time for some spontaneity. You can also take a lower dose of Cialis on a daily basis if you plan to have sex more frequently.

ED, is when a man can’t get or keep an erection that’s hard enough for sex. It is common, and it’s the sexual problem reported most often by men. At one time it was thought ED only affected men as they aged. However, recent research has shown plenty of young men experience ED too.

Many things can cause ED. Medical conditions that limit the flow of blood to your penis, like diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure, are common culprits. It can also be caused by psychological problems too, including performance anxiety, depression, emotional problems, and stress.

You get an erection when your penis fills with blood. Cialis helps with this by relaxing muscle tissue in the cavities inside your penis and the arteries leading to it, causing them to open. This increases blood flow to your penis and allows it to fill more easily. Cialis won’t give you an automatic erection. You need to feel desire, and you may need to be stimulated, with Cialis then helping to turn this desire into a lasting erection.

Cialis active ingredients

The active ingredient in Cialis is called tadalafil. Tadalafil makes the blood vessels leading to your penis, and cavities inside your penis, relax and open up. This increases the flow of blood to your penis and makes it fill and harden more easily.

Tadalafil does this by increasing the amount of a substance in your blood called cGMP. This substance makes muscle tissue in your blood vessels and penis relax. Your body naturally breaks down cGMP. It does this in your penis using an enzyme called PDE5. Tadalafil attaches itself to this PDE5 enzyme and stops it working. This causes cGMP to build up in the blood in your penis and the surrounding region.

Cialis side effects & Cialis drug interactions

Like any medication, Cialis can cause side effects, with the most common affecting around 1 in 10 people who take it. These include headaches, muscle aches, back pain, pain in the arms and legs, facial flushing, nasal congestion, and indigestion.

In rarer cases, Cialis can cause more serious side effects, including allergic reactions to the medication, chest pain, a sudden loss of vision, or an erection that lasts for a number of hours (priapism). Heart attacks and strokes have been reported in men with pre-existing heart problems. Your physician will assess your risk of side effects versus the benefits of taking Cialis.


When taken together some medications can interact with each other. This can affect how they work and make certain side effects more likely. Medications and other substances that are known or thought to interact with Cialis include:

  • Other erectile dysfunction medications
  • Medicines called nitrates, used for chest pain
  • Nitric oxide donor medications, like amyl nitrite
  • Protease inhibitors
  • Alpha-blocker medications
  • 5-alpha reductase inhibitors used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (prostate enlargement)
  • Any other medications used to treat high blood pressure
  • Treatments for pulmonary arterial hypertension (high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs), like riociguat
  • The anticonvulsant medicines phenobarbital, phenytoin, and carbamazepine
  • The antibiotics rifampicin, erythromycin, and clarithromycin 
  • Itraconazole, an antifungal medication
  • Grapefruit juice
  • Excessive amounts of alcohol

Make sure to tell your prescribing physician about all drugs you’re taking, as well as those mentioned above, including any vitamins or dietary supplements.
