Tadalafil ODT 25mg


Tadalafil (Generic Cialis®)

Tadalafil is commonly prescribed to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) in men and is regarded as one of the most popular oral medication options for ED. It belongs to the phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors drug class. The four major PDE5 inhibitors are sildenafil (Viagra® and Revatio®), tadalafil (Cialis®), vardenafil (Levitra®) and avanafil (Stendra®). Medications in this class were originally developed as heart medicines, but found to be more effective in treating erectile dysfunction (ED). By decreasing vascular resistance and relaxing muscles, Tadalafil increases blood flow to the penis. Tadalafil comes in common strengths of 5 and 20mg, but generics that are manufactured in compounding pharmacies may be prescribed in slightly higher or lower doses. ||||The duration of action for the treatment of ED (up to 36 hours) appears to be longer than that of sildenafil and vardenafil. Because PDE5 inhibitors promote erection only in the presence of sexual stimulation, the longer duration of action allows for more spontaneity in sexual activity.

What should I mention to the doctor during consultation?

During your consultation you should mention if you have any problems with your heart, liver, kidneys, vision disorders, bleeding disorders, or penile deformities. You should also mention if you are regularly taking any over the counter medications, and dietary supplements. You can find out a lot of the important safety information here.

What happens if I take too much?

Taking more than the recommended amount of sildenafil greatly increases your risk of side effects, including severe ones that can be dangerous, such as severe low blood pressure or an erection that won’t go away even after 4 or more hours (priapism). Do not take more than the amount prescribed to you by your doctor. If you have any severe side effects seek out emergency medical attention immediately.
