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 BlueChew.com use the same active ingredient (Tadalafil) used in the FDA-approved prescription drug Cialis™, which is sold in a pill form.
