Tadalafil is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence; inability to get or keep an erection) in men. Tadalafil is in a class of medications called phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors. It works by increasing blood flow to the penis during sexual stimulation.
Most important fact about Tadalafil?
Tadalafil does not cure erectile dysfunction or increase sexual desire. Tadalafil does not prevent pregnancy or the spread of sexually transmitted diseases such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
How should you take Tadalafil?
Tadalafil comes as a tablet to take by mouth. It is usually taken with or without food before sexual activity. Your doctor will help you decide the best time for you to take tadalafil before sexual activity. Tadalafil should not be taken more often than once every 24 hours.
What side effects may occur?
The most common side effects when using tadalafil are headache, indigestion, back pain, muscle aches, flushing, and stuffy or runny nose. These side effects usually go away after a few hours. Back pain and muscle aches can occur 12 to 24 hours after taking the drug, and the symptom usually disappears after 48 hours.
Why should Tadalafil not be prescribed?
Physicians should consider the cardiovascular status of their patients, since there is a degree of cardiac risk associated with sexual activity. Therefore, treatments for erectile dysfunction, including Tadalafil, should not be used in men for whom sexual activity is inadvisable as a result of their underlying cardiovascular status.
