Tadalafil - Capsules vs Oral Dissolvable

I take daily low dose tadalafil as part of my protocol and have been very happy with it. I take one 3mg capsule every morning upon waking up.

Do any of you have experience using both capsules and oral dissolvable tablets? I was told that one advantage of the ODTs is that they are absorbed into the bloodstream and therefore bypass the liver.

In terms of effect, I'm wondering if ODTs would be a good approach for someone like me who uses Tadalafil at a daily maintenance dose vs someone who might use it specifically in advance of sexual activity?
ODT’s of any ED ( Every Day or Erectile Dysfunction )products, “Pun Intended” are similar to sublingual and are fast absorbing into the bloodstream. As far as capsules go, a lot of my clients and myself included, take our compounded 30 mg Tadalafil capsules and either take it as a whole for recreational/sexual purposes or take out what we need per daily dose. Never experienced any negative reflux and definitely absorbed well. At the smaller doses it works wonders in the gym for vasodilation and at the compounded dose even better for several days.

I recently started taking the 25mg ODT’s from empower. They are scored so they are very easy to break apart. Still causes reflux but I prefer it over the pills. They also have the generic viagra at 125mg... I have that also and was very impressed. You. An break it into 4 pieces also. I switched hoping these would prevent the reflex but no luck.

Very fast onset so I’ll keep with it.

Are the 25mg ODTs scored so that they can be broken up into 5 pieces?

Here are some photos. My doctor just send the prescriptions to them. I live in Manhattan but I haven’t been able to find anybody else other than these guys who make stuff like this. Under 30 bucks to have it overnighted which is cool.

jmyers, weird that you still get reflux. Somebody else on this thread mentioned the same thing. I would think not being in the stomach it would not affect stomach lining or acidity level. I have some inbound, so I may likely find that I am wrong as well! Dag

I find if I take the full 25 mg I get really bad reflux . This may be because I end up swallowing a lot of it , they don’t dissolve that quickly and easily . I’ve had some prescriptions Staxyn which comes in the dissolvable tablet and it disappears on your tongue in like five seconds . You have to play around with these a little bit to get them to dissolve . If I take a quarter pill at a time and dissolve it I get less reflux.

When i take it everyday my sides went away. I had reflux to at the very beginning. If you just started give it a few days. I even had back pain for the first few days. All went away.

Also,
I live in NYC area to. My Dr sends script to compound pharmacy they have a location in Manhattan and lic. 5.5 MG capsules for about $2 each. If you pick up free shipping.

I have since got it approved for my uhhhh let's say "bph". So insurance covers. The generic $10 a month.

Our patients prefer the sublingual rapid dissolve tablets. They are less impacted by food or drink and bypass your GI track. They are large enough to score into smaller tablets if your preference is to take daily. There is some belief that long term daily use of the product that the body can start to build up resistance. Typically only used as a daily medication if there are symptoms of BPH present.
