A well-known drug in the western world, Cialis is also called ‘the weekend pill’ by French men because of its longer-lasting uniqueness. The reason Cialis is so famous is that it starts working in 30 minutes and stays in the body for 36 hours; this helps men to initiate sex whenever they want without awkward hesitation or planning.
The launch of Cialis in 2003 caused a revolution of sorts. Cialis has a lot more to offer than other erectile dysfunction drugs; its unique and identifying characteristic was its long half-life of 17.5 hours that remains unmatched to date. Cialis thus provided a therapeutic 36-hour window of opportunity for men with erection problems. This property of Cialis allows for spontaneity in lovemaking without having to plan sex around the pill.
Cialis Tadalafil is an approved prescription treatment for men who experience difficulty having and maintaining an erection. It is known to inhibit the working of PDE5, which enhances the effects of cGMP, one of the chemicals the body normally releases into the penis during sexual arousal. This allows for increased blood flow into the penis, which results in an erection.
The 10mg and 20mg dosages of Cialis tadalafil must be taken orally about 30 minutes prior to sexual activity, with or without food. It must only be taken once in 24 hours. Once taken, the effect of Cialis tadalafil remains in the body for 36 hours. Similarly, there is a Cialis daily dose option whereby you need to take the medication on a daily basis, but in lower dosages of 2.5mg and 5mg.
Like all prescription medicines, Cialis too comes with certain side effects. However, most of the Cialis side effects are mild to moderate and are not likely to affect everyone who uses the drug. Most Cialis side effects go away within a few hours. Some of the most commonly reported side effects of Cialis include headache, back pain, muscle ache, diarrhoea, nasal congestion and facial flushing.
Erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence, is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection that is firm enough for sexual intercourse. Erectile dysfunction can be a total inability to achieve an erection, an inconsistent ability to do so, or a tendency to sustain only brief erections. A decade ago discussing erectile dysfunction was taboo but Viagra initiated the needed change and today discussing erectile dysfunction is an accepted norm.
Earlier the cause of erection problems was thought to be ‘all in the man’s mind.’ However, recent research shows that the cause of erection problems can be psychological as well as physiological in nature and are commonly reported in elderly men above 65 years of age; this is based on the data that this age group is more likely to suffer from conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure. These diseases actually interfere in the complex process that is required to achieve an erection. In younger men, erectile dysfunction generally results from psychological causes like depression, stress or relationship problems.
Since an erection requires a precise sequence of events, erectile dysfunction occurs when any one of the events is disrupted. The sequence of events includes nerve impulses in the brain, spinal column, and in the area around the penis, as well as positive responses in the muscles, fibrous tissues, veins and the arteries that are present in and near the corpora cavernosa in the penis.
Damage to nerves, arteries, smooth muscles and fibrous tissues, as a result of disease - such as diabetes, kidney disease, chronic alcoholism, multiple sclerosis, atherosclerosis, vascular disease and neurologic disease – can cause erectile dysfunction. Lifestyle choices, smoking, obesity, no physical exercise, surgery, prescription drugs or injury could also be the possible cause of erectile dysfunction. Apart from this, psychological factors like stress, anxiety, guilt, depression, low self-esteem and fear of sexual failure can also be the possible causes of erectile dysfunction.
Erectile dysfunction is treatable at any age. More and more men are seeking medical help and returning to normal sexual activity because of improved successful impotence treatment.
