INDICATIONS: TADALAFIL is commonly used for treatment of erectile dysfunction ED (men's inability to attain or maintain a penile erection) ), treatment of men with the signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It is particularly useful for men whose ED is caused by enlarged prostate which by itself impairs the blood flow into penis. Majority of men of age over 40 years (and many of younger age) suffer from various forms of enlarged prostate diseases. They can benefit by using this medicine for either any form of enlarged prostate cure (in small doses of as low as 2.5 - 5 mg daily) or for improvement of sex performance.
WORK MECHANISM: Tadalafil belongs to a class of drugs called phosphodiesterase inhibitors that also includes Sildenafil Citrate and Vardenafil (Levitra). Erection of the penis is caused by the filling of the penis with blood. Filling occurs because the blood vessels that bring blood to the penis increase in size and deliver more blood to the penis, and, at the same time, the blood vessels that take blood away from the penis decrease in size and remove less blood from the penis. Sexual stimulation that leads to an erection causes the production and release of nitric oxide in the penis. The nitric oxide causes an enzyme, guanylate cyclase, to produce cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). It is cGMP that is primarily responsible for increasing and decreasing the size of blood vessels carrying blood to and from the penis, respectively, and causing an erection. When the cGMP is destroyed by another enzyme, phosphodiesterase-5, the blood vessels return to their normal size, blood leaves the penis, and the erection ends. Tadalafil prevents phosphodiesterase-5 from destroying cGMP so that cGMP stays around longer. The persistence of cGMP leads to a more prolonged engorgement of the penis with blood.
Tadalafil improves the symptoms of BPH. The phosphodiesterase-5 also is present in the muscles of the bladder and the prostate. The relaxation of these muscles make the passage of urine less difficult, for example, by reducing the pressure in the muscle surrounding the opening to the urethra that controls the flow of urine from the bladder. Also the relaxation of the prostate will improve the blood flow into penis and the strength of erections. Thus Tadalafil Often will NOT work well for men with surgically removed prostate.
