River Pharmacy Cialis Vs Prescribed Cialis
« on: July 11, 2014, 10:49:41 PM »

So when I visited my Uro months ago, he gave me 2 months of low dose cialis for free. I've been taking it regularly until recently I ran out. It's worked phenomenally. That being said, seeing as the costs are so heavy in America, I went to River for their cialis. The pills look a lot different, they're not similar at all. Instead of looking like the shape of a sunflower seed, it's round. The color is different and the potency I purchased was 20mg. I've had erections since being on River's Cialis and I'm not entirely sure if I'm impressed. I'll have to cut my next pill to 5mg and try it daily. (I think 20mg runs for 36 hours?)

In any case, can anyone confirm to me what's going on? Are your pills from River round and almost burgundy in color? How has it worked for you in comparison to local medicine? Thanks.

Hey Voltage, just to clarify, the stuff you got from River pharmacy is not working as well at a 20mg dose as the brand name stuff was at a 5mg dose? But this is comparing 5mg every day (brand name) to 20mg (generic River pharma) every 36 hours?

With regards to hours of effect, the half life of cialis is 17.5 hours, so for a 20mg dose (assuming it is genuine 20mg) at 36 hours you'd still have around 5mg or so still active in your body.

I am cutting River 20 mg pills in 5 (approximately) and taking it daily.
Same effect as the original bought in the local pharmacy (also 20 mg)

I just received an order and yes they are round and not tear drop shaped like the brand name. I've just started using them but they don't seem to be as equivalent to the brand name levels.

This thread needs a bump.

I'm debating on ordering from River Pharmacy once my samples run out. So those of you that have been taking the 20mg (cut into quarters) generic cialis (mfg is Macleods out of India) consistently for some time now, have you formed a better opinion on them yet?

For $255 and quartering the pills, this will give me a 16 month (roughly $16 per month!) supply. Are they as strong/potent as the Cialis manufactured by Lilly? Thanks!

To get answer to your question:

You will have to make a chemical research of the composition of both.
I can say from my own experience that they are working the same, same thing about Viagra.
But of course my answer is not scientific, it is based on my own subjective conclusion.

I agree - I've found them to work just as you'd expect, for much less cost.
