What is Cialis

What Is Cialis?

Cialis is a medication in pill form that was approved by the FDA in 2003 for treatment of erectile dysfunction, and in 2011 for treatment of the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH. The pill, which contains active ingredient tadalafil, was created as an accidental result of a partnership between the companies Glaxo and Icos Corporation as they conducted clinical testing on tadalafil as a possible treatment for inflammatory disorders. The pill is now manufactured and distributed by the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly.

Treatment of ED

Erectile dysfunction, or ED, has found many treatments over the years including but not limited to penis pumps, surgery, and medications like Viagra and Levitra. Erectile dysfunction can occur regardless of age or health for a number of preventable or chronic reasons. Upon Cialis’ conception as a drug purposed to treat this ailment in 2003, Cialis has been able to treat a wide range of national and international individuals so that they don’t need to turn to expensive and painful surgical solutions.

Cialis is a drug that is able to, through a series of processes, increase blood flow to the penis, which upon sexual stimulation causes a penile erection. With the release of nitrous oxide begins the process toward an erection. Cialis quickly and simply increases the production of cGMP in the body, which greatly increases blood in the lower region of the body. Upon sexual stimulation then, the increase of blood flow triggered by the ingestion of Cialis allows for a normal erection response.

Cialis utilises its active ingredient of tadalafil as a PDE5 inhibitor. PDE5, or phosphodiesterase type 5, destroys cGMP in the body, which decreases blood flow. As a PDE5 inhibitor, tadalafil is able to stop the bodily response that is causing erectile dysfunction in order to allow normal sexual activity to resume, uninhibited by the concerns surrounding erectile dysfunction. This also means that individuals taking Cialis should be able to enjoy longer lasting erections as well.

How to Take Cialis

Cialis tablets are offered in most pharmacies and even online in the form of 2.5 milligram, 5 milligrams, 10 milligram, or 20-milligram pills. They are easy to obtain and easy to monitor. They don’t need to be taken after a meal but should not be taken more than advised by a medical professional or by included drug consumption instructions. Because the medication is able to stay in the system for so long, individuals can enjoy the effects of Cialis without needing to continuously ingest more doses of the medication.

Treatment of BPH

Cialis is a medication that serves multiple purposes. Beyond treating individuals with reoccurring or one-time erectile dysfunction, this drug has also been approved by the FDA to treat the symptoms typical in individuals suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia, also referred to as BPH.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia essentially means that an individual is suffering from a swollen or enlarged prostate, which is why the ailment is also sometimes referred to simply as “prostate enlargement.” The symptoms of this ailment are several and various and vary in levels of discomfort or danger. Symptoms of BPH may be categorised into storage issues, voiding issues, and symptoms that occur after urination.

In the category of storage, individuals suffering from BPH may experience urgency in urination urges, as well as increased frequency of urination (possibly during the night). They also experience involuntary urination during the day or at night and even urge incontinence (leaking).

In the voiding category, individuals can experience urinary hesitancy (an uncomfortable delay before urination begins), intermittency (non-continuous flow of urine), weak urine stream, straining during urination, or terminal dribbling. Bladder pain or pain while urinating (dysuria) are also typical of BPH.

Treatment options for BPH prior to Cialis included lifestyle changes for more minor cases but could include self-catheterisation or even surgery for individuals with more severe symptoms. Due to the advent of Cialis, Individuals can now easily and painlessly manage the symptoms that occur as a result of BPH without the need for expensive surgeries and without having to waste time on continuous visits to the doctor or the hospital.

What Causes BPH?

The causes for BPH are also various, but one possible reason an individual may be suffering from it is because of hormones. Another cause could be dietary patterns possibly related to high protein intake. It is also an age-related ailment, which has led to speculation that it may be caused by fibrosis in the prostate.

Regardless of the cause, BPH is a major concern among males and often occurs simultaneously with erectile dysfunction. Symptoms of this condition are often extensive and can be incredibly uncomfortable. They can even impede the activity of daily life, making it difficult to go to work or school, or to attend social gatherings. Cialis has provided consistent and significant relief to those suffering from symptoms of BPH.
