Tadalafil – History And Usage

If you are suffering from ED, know someone who is, or you have ever opened the spam folder of your email, then you have already encountered Tadalafil. Tadalafil is the generic (scientific) name of the most popular drug for treating ED. It is used worldwide and produced under a variety of names and licences. Discovered in 1991 by what is now know as GlaxoSmithKline (then Glaxo Welcome) in a partnership with ICOS Corporation. After the discovery that Sildenafil (Viagra) had an effect in men experiencing ED, the partnership began to explore the possibility of using Tadalafil as a treatment for ED as well. This proved to be a good direction in which to explore the effects of Tadalafil, and as early as 1997, positive effects in treating ED were discovered in the first phase of clinical trials. At the moment, Tadalafil is available under many brand names, the most common ones being Cialis, for ED treatment and Adcirca (both manufactured by Lilly ICOS LLC)for pulmonary arterial hypertension treatment, as well as Tadacip (by manufacturer Cipla).

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

The ED treatment drug comes in the form of pills of varying concentration. They can range from 2.5mg to 20mg, which is the highest dosage allowed for usage for ED treatment. The pulmonary arterial hypertension drug is administered at 40mg per day, twice the highest ranging dosage of the ED drug. While there are no known counter-indications for using Tadalafil in healthy individuals, there are certain risk factors that may lead to serious side-effects in people with underlying conditions, such as visual impairment. However, this only occurs in people who are already at risk, due to either anatomical factors or underlying conditions (old age, diabetes, smoking, hypertension and others). This has not affected Tadalafil sales worldwide, and at the moment it is one of the best selling drug for ED treatment worldwide. The popularity and general effectiveness of the drug is evident, and the positive response and reports of performance enhancement has even led to sporadic recreational use.

Tadalafil can be used in one of three ways - two for ED treatment, and one for pulmonary arterial hypertension. When treating pulmonary arterial hypertension, a daily dosage of up to 40mg is allowed. When treating ED, Tadalafil can be used before intercourse, or in small doses daily. It is important to remember that using Tadalafil will not cause a spontaneous erection, but instead will allow the patient to achieve arousal with stimulation. As with any drug, it is important to note the side-effects, and consult a medical professional before using Tadalafil. Provided correct usage and regular medical supervision is observed, Tadalafil can add a lot of vigor to your love life, help with arterial hypertension, and it has even shown beneficial effects on the treatment of symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy (enlarged prostate). If you are considering using Tadalafil, consult your medical professional to see if it is the right drug to treat your symptoms.
