What is Tadalafil and who can enjoy its benefits?
If you have ever faced the problem of erectile dysfunction, probably you know the drug named Viagra. But people who dig a little deeper into this topic know that it is not the best medication for ED.
Men who have trouble getting an erection or maintaining it long enough whatever the cause is, can you erection-enhancing medicines and there are plenty of them.
What are the erection-enhancing medicines?
I said that there are many of them but in fact, there are only three substances on which all of the available medicines based: Sildenafil citrate, Vardenafil, and Tadalafil. Such medicines as Viagra and its generics (i.e. the same drugs made by other companies) are based on Sildenafil. Vardenafil is a base for Levitra and generics of Levitra. And Tadalafil is used for the making of Cialis and its generics.
These medicines temporarily solve the problem of impotence, i.e. they do not cure it but help coping with the unpleasant symptoms that interfere with normal sexual life. All you need to do is to take a pill around an hour before you plan on having sex and you will enjoy a stable erection when aroused and stimulated. The effect wears off differently. Some medicines last more, some less. The champion in this is Tadalafil – it can guarantee the easily achieved and maintained erection within 46 hours!
You can buy Tadalafil at your local drugstores but if it is sold only with an Rx in your area, you can order it online from a drugstore abroad.
How does Tadalafil act?
As well as other medicines for erection enhancement, Tadalafil promotes the natural process of erection occurrence, i.e. the filling out of the penis with blood. This happens due to the relaxing effect on the smooth muscles of the genitalia achieved through the inhibition of a certain substance in the body that keeps them strained. When the muscles are relaxed, the blood vessels in the penis can easily expand and be filled with the blood.
You should not worry that the medication will expand all of the blood vessels in your body. As it acts on a certain group of muscles, the smooth muscles, it affects only the organs where they are located – genitalia and to a smaller extent, lungs.
Who can use Tadalafil?
Basically, every man older than 18 can buy generic Tadalafil and enjoy its effects unless he is allergic to the drug, has a deformity of the penis in which erection is harmful, or has heart problems and uses nitrate-based heart medicines. If you are concerned that the drug may interfere with any medicines that you use, do not be. It negatively interacts only with the nitrates. But you can read the full medication guide before you buy Cialis or consult your doctor if you still have your doubts.
Tadalafil is effective in all types of erectile dysfunction whether they caused by:
- Poor blood flow due to old age or injury
- Poor blood flow due to diabetes or other conditions
- Lack of sleep
- Physical fatigue, etc.
How should you use Tadalafil?
There are different dosages of the drug – 5, 10, 20, and even 60 mg per pill. It is advised to take the first pill of 10 mg to see whether it is sufficient for you and how well you tolerate the substance. Then, if you tolerate the medication well, i.e. it provides the expected effect without any negative effects, you can raise the dosage to 20 mg or more if you feel that the effect is insufficient.
For men older than 65, it is recommended to use the first dosage of 5 mg as they are more likely than younger men to have kidney or liver function impairment which can make the drug stay longer in the body so the higher dosages are not needed. But if they feel that the effect is insufficient and Tadalafil doesn’t cause any adverse effects, they can use 10 mg or even 20 mg pills.
The drug comes in different forms – chewable tablets, jelly, etc. It means that if you have trouble swallowing pills or want to use the medication when you don’t have water at hand to wash the pills down, you have what to choose from.
Another advantage of Tadalafil is that it can be used in low dosage 2.5 mg or 5 mg daily for an active sexual life without strict planning of the time of the intercourse. These small dosages ensure 24-hour readiness for intimacy.
