Tadalafil (Cialis) belongs to a class of drugs called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. It is used for the treatment of men who have erectile dysfunction (ED).
Cialis increases the flow of blood to the penis, and this enables a man to achieve an erection. It does not lead to sexual arousal. It should be used with caution, and only under medical supervision.
The active ingredient is tadalafil. The other ingredients are;
- lactose monohydrate,
- croscarmellose sodium,
- microcrystalline cellulose,
- sodium laurilsulfate,
- magnesium stearate,
- iron oxide yellow E172,
- titanium dioxide E171 and talc.
HOW IT WORKS?
To improve ED symptoms, tadalafil helps increase blood flow to the penis. This can help you get and keep an erection. For tadalafil to help you have an erection, you need to be sexually aroused.
Some people prefer Cialis (tadalafil) because it lasts longer than Viagra (sildenafil) which typically last up to 8 hours. It generally lasts for 36 hours.
If the following symptoms occur during sexual activity, it could be a sign of a serious complication. They are:
- tingling or pain the jaw, arms, chest, or neck
- Priapism (If an erection lasts for more than 4 hours)
