An adjective (descriptive word):

Describing thing, or person, producing, or sure to produce, desired effect.

"Efficaciously" (adverb) describing the behaviour of act in such a manner as to effect the desired effect.
I may help to understand that the Latin root for these words is the same as that for "Efficient".
Asprin is truly "efficacious" for the treatment of headaches.

I've never known a teacher to be so consistent in dealing so "efficaciously" with problem students, as he does.

A douchey way of saying effective.
When trying to impress with his vocabulary by using the word 'efficacious' rather than 'effective', the man was actually more efficacious at sounding like an ass.
