Uses and Side Effects Of Tadalafil

Tadalafil takes care of erectile dysfunction by dilating the blood vessels and allowing blood flow to the penis freely. This drug works by blocking phosphodiesterase type 5 (PD5) which usually stops the production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) during an erection (cGMP enables the blood vessels in the penis dilate, to allow blood flow, after which it contracts to trap said blood in the penis). Tadalafil can also be used to treat enlarged prostate glands by relaxing the bladder and prostrate muscles making it easier for an individual to urinate. Tadalafil under the brand name adcirca is used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension which is simply high blood pressure in the lungs. These three treatments have different dosages, which have to be taken judiciously to ensure they work properly. Tadalafil (Cialis) pills should not be spilt for any reason, firstly because it doesn't have a demarcation in the middle which means it can't be split equally and secondly because the drug might not work if not taken in the required dosage.
