Tadalafil was approved to treat ED by the FDA in 200,3 and was the third erectile dysfunction pill to be made available as a treatment for men suffering from the dysfunction. It is sold commercially as an ED treatment under the name Cialis. Its significantly longer “life” has led to it being nicknamed the “weekend pill”. Like other PDE5 inhibitors however (Viagra and Levitra), it also requires sexual stimulation in order to take effect. Las Vegas medical clinicscan help you to find out which treatment is best for you and weigh up the pros and cons of the drugs that are available to treat erectile dysfunction.
Cialis is a yellow, film-coated tablet and was first made available in dosages of 5mg, 10mg, and 20mg. Most men are started off on a 10mg per day dose, where after your doctor may decide to adjust it to 5mg or increase it to 20mg, depending on the way your body responds. When it was first made available on the market, it needed to be taken directly before sex but then lower doses of 2.5mg per tablet were manufactured for use on a daily basis.
Cialis’ long half-life of 17.5-hours, compared to the half-life of 4 to 5-hours for Viagra and Levitra, has given it a competitive advantage in some respects, especially for men who want to be spontaneous in their love lives. Furthermore, men who take Cialis are less likely to experience sensitivity to light when compared to those taking Viagra and Levitra.
Tadalafil is also sold under the name Adcirca to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension, and it is also approved for use in treating benign prostatic hyperplasia. A 40mg daily dose is required to manage pulmonary arterial hypertension. A recent study has also found it is effective at normalizing blood flow in men who have Becker muscular dystrophy, a degenerative disease that affects men’s pelvises and legs and eventually causes them to lose their ability to walk.
Because of Cialis’ vasodilation properties, it may induce some side effects such as back pain, indigestion, muscular aches, headaches or a runny nose. Most side effects are likely to disappear within a few hours, but muscular and back pain may take up to 48-hours to disappear.
There are a number of different causes for ED, and while the pills that are available are all PDE5 inhibitors, they may induce different results. Low cost clinics in Las Vegas will be able to provide you with the necessary testing and recommend the most appropriate course of treatment.
