What is Tadalafil?

Tadalafil is a prescribed remedy for erectile dysfunction, classified as a PDE-5 inhibitor, supporting men in attaining an erection when the natural process is impeded. Tadalafil is the active ingredient found in Cialis. As tadalafil can be produced by any pharmaceutical company, it is often more economically accessible compared to Cialis. 

What is Tadalafil used to treat?

Primarily prescribed for erectile dysfunction (ED), tadalafil addresses the common challenge faced by men in attaining and maintaining an erection. 

Who can and cannot take medicines containing Tadalafil?

Individuals who are taking specific medications or have certain pre-existing conditions may face limitations in taking tadalafil: 

Medication Interactions: You may be unable to take tadalafil if you are currently using medications such as: 

  • nitrates (e.g., isosorbide mononitrate, glyceryl trinitrate) 

  • some antibiotics (e.g., erythromycin) 

  • antifungals (e.g., ketoconazole and itraconazole) 

  • antivirals (e.g., ritonavir and saquinavir) 

  • alpha-blockers (e.g., tamsulosin, doxazosin, alfuzosin) 

  • other erectile dysfunction medications (e.g., Viagra, Levitra, etc.) 

The consumption of alcohol and grapefruit juice is advised against as these can also interact with tadalafil. 

Pre-existing Conditions: Tadalafil may not be suitable for individuals with the following pre-existing conditions: 

  • Peyronie's disease (a condition causing penile curvature) 

  • heart problems or a history of stroke 

  • certain visual/eye conditions 

  • kidney or liver disease 

  • sickle cell anaemia, multiple myeloma, or leukaemia 

It is crucial to consult with a healthcare professional to assess individual health conditions and medication regimens before considering tadalafil, ensuring its compatibility and safe usage. 

In the UK, tadalafil is not authorised for use in women, and therefore, it should not be taken by women as it cannot be safely prescribed by a doctor.

What’s the difference between Tadalafil and Sildenafil?

Tadalafil and sildenafil contain different active ingredients. Tadalafil is the active ingredient in Cialis, whereas sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra. Both increase blood flow to the penis, enabling firmer erections. However, some men may find they have a stronger reaction when taking one of these medications. The main difference between them is that Cialis is a longer-lasting medication, and the effects last for up to 36 hours, whereas Viagra lasts for 4 to 6 hours.
