1 INDICATIONS AND USAGE

1.1 Erectile Dysfunction

Tadalafil tablets are indicated for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED).

1.2 Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Tadalafil tablets are indicated for the treatment of the signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

1.3 Erectile Dysfunction and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Tadalafil tablets are indicated for the treatment of ED and the signs and symptoms of BPH (ED/BPH).

1.4 Limitation of Use

If tadalafil is used with finasteride to initiate BPH treatment, such use is recommended for up to 26 weeks because the incremental benefit of tadalafil decreases from 4 weeks until 26 weeks, and the incremental benefit of tadalafil beyond 26 weeks is unknown [see Clinical Studies ( 14.3)].

2 DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Do not split tadalafil tablets; entire dose should be taken.

2.1 Tadalafil for Use as Needed for Erectile Dysfunction

• The recommended starting dose of tadalafil tablets for use as needed in most patients is 10 mg, taken prior to anticipated sexual activity.
• The dose may be increased to 20 mg or decreased to 5 mg, based on individual efficacy and tolerability. The maximum recommended dosing frequency is once per day in most patients.
• Tadalafil for use as needed was shown to improve erectile function compared to placebo up to 36 hours following dosing. Therefore, when advising patients on optimal use of tadalafil, this should be taken into consideration.

2.2 Tadalafil Tablets for Once Daily Use for Erectile Dysfunction

• The recommended starting dose of tadalafil tablets for once daily use is 2.5 mg, taken at approximately the same time every day, without regard to timing of sexual activity.
• The tadalafil dose for once daily use may be increased to 5 mg, based on individual efficacy and tolerability.

2.3 Tadalafil Tablets for Once Daily Use for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

• The recommended dose of tadalafil tablets for once daily use is 5 mg, taken at approximately the same time every day. • When therapy for BPH is initiated with tadalafil and finasteride, the recommended dose of tadalafil tablets for once daily use is 5 mg, taken at approximately the same time every day for up to 26 weeks.

2.4 Tadalafil for Once Daily Use for Erectile Dysfunction and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

The recommended dose of tadalafil tablets for once daily use is 5 mg, taken at approximately the same time every day, without regard to timing of sexual activity.

2.5 Use with Food

Tadalafil tablets may be taken without regard to food.

• Creatinine clearance less than 30 mL/min or on hemodialysis: The maximum dose is 5 mg not more than once in every 72 hours [see Warnings and Precautions ( 5.7) and Use in Specific Populations ( 8.7)].

Tadalafil for Once Daily Use

Erectile Dysfunction

• Creatinine clearance less than 30 mL/min or on hemodialysis: Tadalafil for once daily use is not recommended [see Warnings and Precautions ( 5.7) and Use in Specific Populations ( 8.7)].

Hepatic Impairment

Tadalafil for Use as Needed

Tadalafil for Once Daily Use

• Mild or moderate (Child Pugh Class A or B): Tadalafil for once daily use has not been extensively evaluated in patients with hepatic impairment. Therefore, caution is advised if tadalafil for once daily use is prescribed to these patients.
