What is Cialis?

Cialis” is the name given to a certain variation of the drug called “Tadalafil” when it is marketed towards fighting against symptoms of erectile dysfunction. When it’s manufactured to work against hypertension, it is instead called “Adcirca”. The effects generally occur within 36 hours, which is the reason why it occasionally referred to as the “weekend drug”. It is distributed worldwide due to the fact that it is FDA approved, and its function can be compared to Viagra, you can read about it on this site. Though the drug is commercially available and isn’t known for harmful side effects, it can only be purchased through a prescription.

Background 

The Food and Drug Administration approved Cialis for safety in October 2011. At the time of its approval, it was a known fighter against prostatic hyperplasia symptoms. It was also recognized for being useful in working against the undesirable symptoms of impotence when they became combined with the effects of prostatic hyperplasia. Initially, it was a product of pharmaceutical company ICOS alone. In time, however, ICOS formed an alliance with Eli Lilly and Company. Following the alliance of Eli Lilly and Company, Cialis became a product that was marketed under the joint company of Lilly ICOS.

Description 

Cialis is administered in a pill form, and each pill varies in size depending on the certain dose that the person taking it wishes to take in. The sizes in dose can range from 5 milligrams, to 10 milligrams, and a maximum size of 20 milligrams. Tablets will typically come in a yellow color and be wrapped in a light film. The pills are also all vaguely almond-shaped.  Doctors encourage people with a prescription not to take more than forty milligrams of the supplement on a daily basis, which is equivalent to roughly two of the maximum size pills altogether.

Function 

The drug operates by creating an increase in erection strengthening blood flow. The only way that the blood flow to the penis can be strengthened is if all of the penile arteries are unstressed, in a state of relative rest. When it is in effect, there will be an increase in Nitric Oxide output from the terminals of the nervous system. All of the blood vessels that are known to detract blood from the penis are shrunken, which creates less interference in the blood flow of an erection and results in a much stronger final state of stimulation. The size of blood-supplying vessels depends on the effectiveness of cGMP, which is sometimes hampered by opposing enzymes such as phosphodiesterase-5, or P5 for short. The drug lessens the inhibitory effects of P5, causing cGMP to have a higher rate of production and ultimately increase the blood flow to the erection.

Safety 

The exact manner in which the supplement increases blood flow is still somewhat ambiguous, but for all intents and purposes, it does its job exceedingly well with only the smallest of perceivable side effects. As long as one makes sure not to become overzealous and overdose, then this FDA-approved drug could be a great option for sexual enhancement.
