The tadalafil pill was developed in 2003 by biotechnology company ICOS as a treatment for erectile dysfunction. In 2009, it was approved to be used as a treatment for pulmonary arterial hypertension, or PAH. The drug is widely available and is sold both on the internet in online stores and in pharmacies and shops worldwide. The tadalafil drug works by relaxing certain muscles of the body, and is part of a class of drugs known as ‘PDE5 inhibitors’, which also includes drugs such as Viagra.
The role for which Tadalafil was developed initially was as a treatment for erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence. This is a condition affecting most often older men, however, men of any age are capable of contracting the condition. A common cause is the use of drugs such as nicotine and some anti depressants. The condition is common and affects roughly one in ten men globally. It causes difficulties gaining and maintaining a penile erection, which often creates difficulties in sexual activities. The use of Tadalafil can temporarily stop the effects of erectile dysfunction, allowing a normal erection to be held and maintained while the drug is acting on the body, which in the case of Tadalafil can be between 10 and 48 hours, depending on the dosage taken and the individual tolerance of its effects. Tadalafil used for this role is sold and marketed as ‘Cialis’ and is available in preparations of 5, 10 and 20 milligrams. The pill is yellow and egg shaped.
Adcirca PAH Treatment
Tadalafil is also sold as ‘Adcirca’ and used in the treatment of a condition called PAH, or pulmonary arterial hypertension. This is a rare but dangerous condition with a range of causes, though the usage of drugs such as cocaine and alcohol is considered significant. The condition affects the lungs and heart. It is caused by tension in the arterial wall of the lungs, which leads to stresses in the right ventricle of the heart as its workload increases. These stresses can lead to dangerous complications. Adcirca relaxes the tensions of the arterial walls in the lungs and can therefore halt the condition if taken regularly and consistently. Adcirca is sold in 20 milligram preparations and is usually taken twice daily. The pill is of the same shape as Cialis ed medication, but is a darker, orange colour.
Because of their usefulness in treating erectile dysfunction and pulmonary arterial hypertension, Tadalafil drugs are widespread in their use and are sold globally. This success has lead to Tadalafil becoming a hugely popular and profitable drug.
