Prescription Compounded Tadalafil is Now Personalized For You
Tadalafil (Cialis), a vasodilator that increases blood flow, is classified as a PDE5 inhibitor, and may be prescribed to treat sexual impotence (erectile dysfunction) and an enlarged prostate also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Similarly, tadalafil under the name of Adcirca, is indicated for the treatment of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH), or high blood pressure in the lungs to improve exercise capacity.Erectile dysfunction is the condition where the male penis does not harden and expand when a man is sexually aroused, and the inability to maintain an erection.
Tadalafil appears to restrain certain enzymes and allows increased blood flow into the penis. The increased blood flow helps maintain erections longer. Tadalafil typically will not cause a erection without sexual stimulation.
Patients who struggle with an enlarged prostate (BPH), have difficulty while urinating. Tadalafil may make symptoms of BPH less severe and reduce the chance of prostate surgery.
Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension occurs when the smaller blood vessels in the lungs become more resistant to blood flow. Therefore, the right ventricle must work harder to pump enough blood through the lungs. Tadalafil appears to control the PDE5 enzyme in the lungs to relax the blood vessels, thus allowing a greater supply of blood into the lungs and reducing the workload of the heart.
Tadalafil is usually taken once a day or as needed. It takes 30-60 minutes to begin working and can stay in your system up to 36 hours. If Tadalafil is taken daily and over a long period of time, it does not need to be taken right before sexual activity.
