What Does Cialis Do?

Cialis is a name for the drug Tadalafil, which is a commonly used treatment for erectile dysfunction disorder. The name Cialis is just the brand name, and the actual drug is Tadalafil. Although different from Viagra and Levitra, they have essentially the same effect.

Cialis is not the only drug that Tadalafil is used for. In fact, it is also used in the drug Adcirca in order to help those who suffer from pulmonary arterial hypertension. The uses for this drug indicate that Tadalafil has something to do with the control of blood flow, and that is absolutely correct.

How Does It Work?

A penile erection occurs when blood rushes to the penis, causing it to become engorged. This occurs due to the fact that the blood vessels that provide blood to the penis dilate when sexual arousal occurs, causing more blood to flow to the area. Simultaneously with this dilation, the blood vessels that are responsible for removing blood from the penis contract. This accumulation of blood in the penis is what causes one to have an erection.

Sexual stimulation in men releases chemicals in the body that cause the dilation and contraction of these blood vessels to occur. The chemicals also cause the blood vessels in the penis to go back to normal. But it is not an uncommon occurrence for people’s bodies to not be able to produce enough of these chemicals to cause an erection, and this is where Cialis comes in.

Essentially, Cialis increases the blood flow to one’s penis, which helps one achieve an erection when one otherwise might not be able to. The medication does not cause sexual arousal, and instead just causes an erection. The drug should be used carefully, with one adhering to the suggested amount and taking precautions not to use the drug an excessive amount. However, Tadalafil is deemed safe for use to treat erectile dysfunction.

While sexual arousal is necessary for Cialis to work in the way that it is intended—to help with erectile dysfunction—the only effect that the drug in Cialis actually causes is blood to flow to the penis and help a person achieve an erection. Cialis does not cause sexual arousal, and there are no drugs approved by the FDA that are used specifically to increase sexual arousal.

Side Effects and Precautions

Cialis is a great option for those who are struggling with erectile dysfunction and is perfectly safe if used in the manner in which it is recommended. The most important thing to remember is that a person should not take more than one dose every 24 hours, and that a dosage between 10 and 20 mg is considered standard. People should also consult their doctors if they plan to take Cialis in conjunction with other medications as it may cause adverse side effects.

Conclusion

Cialis is a great option for those who suffer from erectile dysfunction and are looking to live life normally. In the UK, you can purchase two forms of Cialis—branded and generic, both of which are the same and have the same effects.
