What Is Tadalafil?

Learn everything about Tadalafil, the active ingredient contained in the FDA-approved erectile dysfunction drug Cialis™. Discover how it works, why it could be an excellent option for stronger and longer-lasting erections, and how to gain access to Tadalafil through BlueChew!

Tadalafil and Erectile Dysfunction

Tadalafil is an active ingredient used to treat men who have been diagnosed with erectile dysfunction (ED). ED is a widespread condition that can affect 1/3 of all men and more than half of men over 40. We can define it as a man’s inability to get or maintain an erection for sexual activity.

In 2003, Lilly introduced Cialis™, which contains the active ingredient Tadalafil, and maintained the patent until November 2017. At that time, the patents for both FDA-approved ED medications (Cialis™ and Viagra™) became public, allowing other companies to distribute their generic version of Tadalafil and Sildenafil.

Tadalafil is a drug that belongs to a category known as PDE5 inhibitors, also used to treat pulmonary hypertension and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Essentially, it relaxes the blood vessels’ muscles and improves the blood flow to the penis following sexual stimulation.

In other words, Tadalafil can increase your chances of having a harder and longer-lasting erection but won’t cause an erection without sexual arousal.

The chewable tablets prescribed through use the same active ingredient (Tadalafil) used in the FDA-approved prescription drug Cialis™, which is sold in a pill form.

How often can I take Tadalafil?

Tadalafil chewable tablets should be taken before sexual activity and not more than once per day. You should take the medication exactly as directed by your licensed medical provider.

Tadalafil increases blood flow to the penis and makes intercourse possible within as little as 30 minutes after ingestion, so it might be the best option for men who want to be able to have sex at any time. The effects can last between 24 and 36 hours, so you can take a tablet in the morning without having to worry about when the moment comes.

The chewable tablets prescribed through BlueChew’s service are designed with a goal: to be easier to swallow than commercial pills, making ED treatments more accessible and convenient for up to 40% of Americans.

It is not recommended to take more or less Tadalafil tablets than prescribed, and don’t take it for longer than recommended.

We also don’t recommend taking Tadalafil if you take medicines containing nitrates or guanylate cyclase stimulators for pulmonary hypertension. This combination could cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure or if you are allergic to Sildenafil, Tadalafil or any ingredients in either medication.

Unlike most ED medications, you can take Tadalafil either with or without food. We do not recommend eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while taking the chewable tablets, as it can affect how your body metabolizes the medication.

How long does Tadalafil last?

While one can observe effects within 30 minutes, Tadalafil can remain in the body for as long as 36 hours.

We know that timing is everything and that anxiety and nervousness can also cause erectile dysfunction, even when the blood flow is working correctly. The good news is, you don’t need to rush things with your partner!

Indeed, Tadalafil’s main advantage compared to Sildenafil is its long-lasting effect of up to 36 hours (compared to 4 to 6 hours for Sildenafil).

Nonetheless, Tadalafil does not suit all men. Learn more about the differences between the two active ingredients contained in BlueChew’s chewable tablets.

Please consult with one of BlueChew’s licensed medical providers to determine which ED medication and dosage will provide the best results according to your specific case.

What are the potential side effects of Tadalafil?

Make sure to tell your medical provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements, to minimize the risk of side effects.

The most common side effects of Tadalafil include:

  • Headache
  • Skin flushing
  • Upset stomach
  • Abnormal or blurred vision
  • Stuffy or runny nose
  • Back or muscle pain
  • Nausea, dizziness
  • Rash

Other side effects are possible (erection lasting more than 4 hours, sudden vision or hearing decrease or loss, or tinnitus). If you experience any of the symptoms listed above, stop taking the medication and seek immediate medical attention.
