What Does Cialis Do?

Cialis (tadalafil) treats erectile dysfunction to enable men suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) a more pleasurable experiences during sexual intercourse. It increases the blood flow to the penis, making it possible for an erection to occur when a male is sexually aroused – note that Cialis does not cause sexual stimulation.

Once a man is sexually stimulated, a chemical known as nitric oxide is released into his penis enabling the production of cGMP which is important to achieve an erection. CGMP is the substance that controls the dilations and contraction of the blood vessels that carry blood to and away from the penis.

In men suffering from ED, their body often contains another substance known as PDE5 that destroys or lessens the cGMP, thus preventing or decreasing the length and intensity of an erection.

Cialis stops PDE5 from taking effect and destroying the production of cGMP, thus allowing men to experience an erection and have it for longer periods of time.

Cialis has been found to be an extremely reliable medication for men who suffer from ED. The risks of taking it are not high, unless the patient has pre-existing medical conditions, especially those that are heart-related. Since it varies from individual to individual, speaking with a medical provider will clarify how serious the risk is and whether Cialis is right for you.

Side Effects

Just like any other medication, there are side effects associated with Cialis. While the side effects of this medication are rare, they do occur.

For instance, Cialis can limit blood flow to the optic nerve of the eye leading to loss of vision. This is extremely rare and is more likely to happen with patients who have heart-related problems, high cholesterol, or diabetes.

Cialis should always be used with caution and under medical supervision. It is available in doses of 2.5, 5, 10, and 20 milligrams. Because this drug stays within the body for at least 24 hours it should be taken only as prescribed by your medical provider, usually just once a day.

If any of the following symptoms occur during sexual intercourse while under the influence of this drug, immediate medical assistance is needed:

  • Dizziness
  • Numbness
  • Nausea

Additionally, if the erection lasts longer than 4 hours, seek medical help as this can damage the penis.  In general, this drug is considered very safe unless patients have pre-existing health conditions.

Where to Get Cialis

Consult with your doctor to discuss available options for treatment concerning your erectile dysfunction condition. If you have a heart condition, chances are Cialis is not a reliable option for you. Also, if you are currently under other medication it’s recommended to speak with your medical provider.

In the United Kingdom, you can obtain Cialis in two ways: the branded version and the generic one. Either method works just the same, giving you more enjoyable sexual experiences. Cialis tablets are also available online through accredited online pharmacies.

While they can be obtained online, you will still need a prescription and should only use safe, accredited online pharmacies to ensure you receive quality medication. Many providers sell counterfeit tadalafil tablets, becoming very dangerous to those using them. It is better to be safe than sorry and spend the time doing your research before settling with an online pharmacy.
