Everything you need to know about Tadalafil

It’s time to address the elephant in the room. Whose trunk isn’t doing its job? If you’ve experienced erectile dysfunction — a.k.a ED — before, know that you aren’t alone and help is here in the form of a chewable pill, called Tadalafil.

Wondering what Tadalafil is? We’ve broken it down with all you need to know right here.

How does it work?

Here’s a bit of science for you. Tadalafil is a PDE5 inhibitor. So this type of medicine functions by blocking the action of an enzyme called PDE5.

When you become aroused, nerve endings trigger a release in nitric oxide which stimulates the action of a chemical called cGMP which acts as a messaging channel. It plays an important role in the dilation of blood vessels, which is necessary for the movement of blood around various parts of the body.

Thanks to the PDE5 inhibitor preventing the enzyme from breaking cGMP down, blood is able to fill the muscles in the penis more easily, facilitating stronger and firmer erections.

What is it used for?

Tadalafil helps to treat problems such as erectile dysfunction (ED) by increasing blood flow to the penis, enabling you to get and keep an erection. It is also used to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate by relieving symptoms including weak stream, difficulty in beginning the flow of urine, urgent need to urinate and frequent urination as it helps to relax the muscles in the prostate and bladder.

What makes Tadalafil different to other ED treatments?

Tadalafil is one of the better medications on the market for ED. Whilst it takes a similar amount of time to take effect, when it does, the effects last for much longer than other medications. We’re talking approximately 36 hours — and that’s why it has been coined the term ‘weekend pill’.

What are the side effects?

Possible side effects of Tadalafil include:

  • Headache
  • Upset stomach
  • Back pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Stuffy nose
  • Dizziness

If any of the above symptoms persist, speak to your doctor.

If you experience any of the below, stop taking Tadalafil straight away and seek medical assistance immediately:

  • Fainting
  • Severe dizziness
  • Chest pain
  • Jaw pain
  • Nausea
  • Sudden decreased vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Rash
  • Itching or swelling
  • Trouble breathing

Anyone with a heart condition should seek medical advice prior to using Tadalafil.

Where can I get Tadalafil?

Tadalafil is available by prescription only. It can also be purchased online.

How do I consume it?

Tadalafil should be taken 30 minutes before sexual activity, taking the recommended dosage prescribed by your physician. The maximum is 20 milligrams as a single dose therefore no more than this should be consumed in a single session.

Patients with ED can take Tadalafil as needed, however it should only be consumed once a day (every 24 hours) as the drug remains in your system for at least 24 hours.

And one last thing…

It’s important to note that the drug does not work if you are not sexually aroused — it does not provide an erection without sexual stimulation.

So now that you have all the information you need to know to determine if it’s right for you, make your next session one to remember…chew it and do it!
