In this context, we will summarize what is this medication, what it does, and how to use it safely.

What Is Tadalafil?

Tadalafil is a potent phosphodiesterase type-5 inhibitor that has various therapeutic benefits. This medicine is manufactured by various manufacturers. The use of Tadalafil was approved in the United States in 2003. This drug was initially developed by ICOS Corporation and later it was marketed by Eli Lilly and Company [1].

Tadalafil Working Mechanism

Tadalafil works by reducing the activity of phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (an enzyme). This enzyme is responsible for breaking down a molecule called cGMP (cyclic guanosine monophosphate) which relaxes the muscles of the body.

By reducing the activity of phosphodiesterase type 5 enzyme, Tadalafil elevates the level of cGMP in the penile area leading to relaxation of muscles in the abdomen, which is important for treating conditions like impotence or ED.

This thus improves blood flow, resulting in a firmer erection. 

For benign prostatic hyperplasia, Tadalafil works by relaxing the smooth muscles in the prostate and bladder and for pulmonary arterial hypertension, this PDE5 inhibitor shows its effects by opening the blood vessels that carry blood to the lungs from the heart, thus allowing easy blood flow. 

Note: It is important to keep in mind that ED pills such as Tadalafil make it easier for you to maintain an erection only when you’re sexually aroused.
