What does Tadalafil do?
When we are talking about what Tadalafil does, we need to take into consideration two distinct, but equally important aspects. First of all, there is the psychological one, one that has to do with how the men who decide to take Tadalafil feel once they start taking this medication, and there is the physiological aspect, where it will be explained exactly how Tadalafil helps manage erectile dysfunction.
Firstly, we would like to cover the psychological aspect of taking Tadalafil, which can also be viewed from a social viewpoint. For centuries, in fact millennia, erectile dysfunction has been a condition that has been affecting a percentage of men, a percentage that rose in the 20th century due to certain lifestyle changes that have lead to increased percentage of certain medical conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes, all of which may contribute to developing erectile dysfunction. Therefore, the percentage of men suffering from ED has also risen. And for a long, long time, there was nothing they could do. Their condition was there to stay and its psychological and social consequences were devastating.
For some men, erectile dysfunction resulted in low self-esteem, for some it resulted in social anxiety, especially when interacting with the possible partners. In some men, erectile dysfunction even leads to depression and to troubles in their relationships with their partners. It was a taboo subject and all of the remedies available were less than efficient. This all changed with the introduction of FDA approved ED pills, first sildenafil and then the other two, vardenafil and Tadalafil. Tadalafil was especially exciting as it did not need to be taken immediately before sex. In fact, you could take the pill in the morning and still be ready to perform in the evening or during the night. All of a sudden, the problem of ED has been put under control. Men have finally become able to enjoy in an active sex life once again. Its benefits are staggering and it is safe to say that men feel their lives have changed since they started taking Tadalafil.
We would now like to cover the more scientific, physiological way in which Tadalafil works. What exactly does Tadalafil do? Well, like other medications from its class, Tadalafil also inhibits PDE5, hence the name of the class, PDE5 inhibitors. What does this mean? This means that an enzyme which is responsible for the large majority of ED cases gets inhibited and prevented from doing its bidding. Its bidding being responsible for preventing the necessary blood flow into the penis, thus preventing the erections. When Tadalafil is taken, this enzyme is prevented from doing its job, which results in healthy and long-lasting erections. And the best thing is that with Tadalafil, these effects last for much, much longer than with any other ED medication. On top of all that, Tadalafil causes fewer side effects and is even superior to the other two ED drugs in that respect as well.
