Cialis, the 36-hour pill for erectile dysfunction
Third in line to receive approval, Cialis is an oral prescription medication endorsed for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. As compared to Viagra, Cialis comes in smaller doses and stays for much longer in the body – almost up to 36 hours. The much awaited Cialis has been approved for sale for the management of ED, with any level of severity, in doses of 5, 10 and 20mg strengths. Indicated for use up to an hour prior to anticipated sexual activity, Cialis must be taken with a whole glass of water, without regard for food. Like Viagra, Cialis also works upon sexual stimulation. As mentioned on the Cialis label, its efficacy may persist up to 24 hours after dosing. However, labels in Australia and the United States indicate an efficacy limit of up to 36 hours after dosing.
How would you describe impotence?
Impotence today is a familiar topic primarily because of the drugs used in treating this condition. Indeed, impotence may result from a malfunction in any of the four main components of male sexuality, that is, libido, erection, ejaculation, and orgasm.
While libido is the cognitive, or psychological, component of any human sexual function, it represents an interest in sexual activity and the frequency and intensity of sexual thoughts. Penile erections are the result of a complex series of processes, both physiologic and psychological, that lead to an increase in blood flow, producing penile rigidity. Activation of the sympathetic nervous system causes a sequence of events to take place that project semen through the urethra. The orgasm is a highly pleasurable sensation that usually occurs with ejaculation, and is mainly regulated by the centers in the brain. Though many factors can interfere with one or more components of male sexual function, physical problems can generally be overcome with the use of Cialis or other ED drugs.
What is the Cialis mechanism of action?
Currently Cialis has overtaken Viagra as the number one prescription drug in Europe. This is largely because Cialis has a unique mechanism of action; it can last for almost 36 hours in the body. Belonging to a class of medications known as PDE-5 inhibitors, Cialis has been approved for the treatment of male impotence. With the same mechanism of action as Viagra, Cialis also inhibits the enzyme phosphodiesterase-5, or PDE-5. However, Cialis works in a much more targeted manner than Viagra, resulting in fewer side effects with lower dosages. Cialis helps relax and widen the smooth muscles in the penis; this allows for more blood to enter. As a result, Cialis helps achieve faster, easier, longer-lasting erections.
Cialis, a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, has no generic substitute and is only available in tablet form from its manufactures Lilly Icos. It is a popular prescription medication and can be bought online for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
