APCALIS SX INDICATIONS
Apcalis SX is a jelly solution for the treatment of male erectile dysfunction. Apcalis SX increases blood flow to the penis allowing more blood flow into the penis like happened naturally when a man is sexually stimulated. With more blood flowing in and less flowing out, the arteries in the penis enlarge resulting erection.
APCALIS SX INSTRUCTIONS
For most patients, Apcalis SX should be taken once a day as needed. In patients taking certain protease inhibitors (such as for the treatment of HIV), it is recommended to not exceed a maximum single dose of 25 mg of Apcalis SX in a 48-hour period.
If you miss a dose of this medicine, take it as soon as possible. Do not take 2 doses at once.
APCALIS SX STORAGE
In most cases the dosage should not increase more than once in a day (24 hours).
If you miss out on a dose, then take it as soon as you remember about it. But keep in mind that you will have to adjust your next dose by spacing it out by 4 to 5 hours. If this is not possible, then the best thing to do would be to skip the missed dose and continue with your normal dosage schedule.
Never try to compensate for the missed dose by taking a double dose together. It may cause adverse effects.
APCALIS SX STORAGE
Apcalis SX should be stored at room temperature, 15-30 degrees C (59-86 degrees F). Keep Apcalis SX out of the reach of children.
