HISTORY:

There was great commercial market for Viagra (sildenafil) and Levitra (verdenafil) for the same reason discussed above. They got FDA approval. Their sales exceeded U.S $ 10 billion. This encouraged the discovery and approval of tadalafil on November 21, 2003.

It is available in the form of 20mg, 40 mg, and 60 mg strength tablets. Take it with or without food, swallow it as a whole. For ED take it prior to sexual activity.  take one in every 1 ½ days.

WORKING:

ED: During sexual arousal, blood fills the blood vessels in the penis. This causes the penis erection. The blood vessels bring maximum blood to penis and fills it with blood. At the same time the blood vessels which take away decreases in size. So small amount of blood is remove from penis. The enzyme cGMP is responsible for the increase and decrease in size of blood vessels. It helps to return penis to its normal position too, when erection ends. Another enzyme PDE-5 destroys enzyme cGMP. This leads the Blood vessels to returns to normal size.  Blood leaves penis and ends the erection of the penis. Tadalafil prevents enzyme PDE-5 from destroying enzyme cGMP. This allows it to stay erect for longer. The penis remains full of blood for longer time leading to increase sexual activity .

BPH:  The working of Tadalafil in case of BPH isn’t clear. PDE-5 is present in the muscle of the bladder and the prostate. Scientist believe that increase and decrease in size of muscles due to tadalafil.
