Tadalafil is a medication commonly used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It is also prescribed under the brand name Adcirca to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Like sildenafil, tadalafil belongs to the class of drugs known as phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors.

Tadalafil works by inhibiting the enzyme PDE5, which plays a role in regulating blood flow. By inhibiting PDE5, tadalafil increases the levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), leading to relaxation of the smooth muscles in the blood vessels. This increased blood flow helps to achieve and maintain an erection in the case of erectile dysfunction.

The brand name for tadalafil used to treat erectile dysfunction is Cialis. It is known for having a longer duration of action compared to other PDE5 inhibitors, with the potential for effectiveness for up to 36 hours. This longer duration has earned tadalafil the nickname “the weekend pill.”

When used for BPH, tadalafil helps to relax the muscles in the prostate and bladder, improving the flow of urine. In the treatment of PAH, it acts similarly to sildenafil, helping to relax the blood vessels in the lungs.

As with any medication, tadalafil may have potential side effects and interactions, and it should be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional. It is essential to discuss your medical history and any current medications with your healthcare provider to determine the appropriateness of tadalafil for your specific situation.
