Actavis UK & Ireland rebranded to become Accord Healthcare in 2017, and has now discontinued Actavis Aindeem branded generic finasteride 1mg (packs of 28 and 84 tablets). This has had a knock-on effect on UK supplies of other finasteride 1mg brands, as not all manufacturers offer the 84-tablet pack size, creating further demand on the smaller 28-tablet pack sizes.
The new EU Falsified Medicines Directive is also now in effect (February 2019) and the new packaging requirements has also contributed to production delays.

Tadalafil is a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. It is a type of PDE5 inhibitor. Tadalafil is a generic or drug name – ‘Cialis’ is a branded form of tadalafil.
One question men frequently ask when trying to choose a PDE5 inhibitor, is how long does it last?
Keeping it simple, tadalafil lasts for 36 hours and sometimes longer, and has the longest duration of action of all the PDE5 inhibitors. This compares for example to sildenafil (Viagra) which lasts for around 4 hours.
In addition, absorption of tadalafil is not affected by food, so it can be taken at any time before, during, or after a meal.
Tadalafil is the medical – or generic – name for the Cialis brand of erectile dysfunction medicine. Tadalafil works in the same way as sildenafil (Viagra), however whereas sildenafil lasts for around 4 hours, tadalafil remains active for up to 36 hours, hence why it is sometime called the weekend pill. This does not mean you will have an erection for 36 hours, only when required, eg: when sexually aroused.
Most men take tadalafil as and when they need it 30 minutes or more before sexual activity. The usual starting dose is tadalafil 10mg, which – depending on effectiveness – may be increased to 20mg or decreased to 5mg.
