How it Works
Tadalafil prevents the body from breaking down the chemicals needed to get and maintain an erection. These chemicals are then able to help dilate the corpora cavernosa of the penis, facilitating blood flow which allows for an erection with stimulation.
Tadalafil stays in your system longer than sildenafil, which can provide you with more flexibility in the timing of intercourse.
Who’s it For?
Tadalafil is recommended for men who suffer from erectile dysfunction. Tadalafil may also be prescribed for men who have just had a radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer to help in the recovery process.
Tadalafil can be taken on an as-needed basis or daily. The daily dose is 5mg. Daily tadalafil has been shown to not only improve your erections but can also improve your urinary flow.
DO NOT take tadalafil or other PDE5 inhibitors if you take nitrate medications for cardiac conditions. Talk with your physician before taking tadalafil or other PDE5 inhibitors if you take alpha-blocker medications for high blood pressure or if you have any of the following conditions:
- Low blood pressure
- Uncontrolled hypertension
- Cardiac failure
Tadalafil is an effective treatment for ED. 15 trials that assessed the use of tadalafil in men with various comorbidities were conducted to determine the mean per-patient percentage of successful intercourse attempts. Based on data collected, tadalafil was reported as having a success rate of 69% (range, 50%–85%) versus 33% for placebo (range, 23%–52%).1
Tadalafil is less affected by meals then sildenafil and other PDE5 inhibitors.

A common practice, off-label prescribing is when a doctor prescribes a drug for a different condition or at a different dosage than the FDA has approved. For Tadlafil, there are quite a few conditions prescribed off-label. Always consult your physician before beginning a new treatment or modifying your existing treatment.
FDA Approved Use

Tadalafil for BPH works by affecting the muscles in the bladder and prostate helping increase urine flow and improve prostate function. Tadalafil has been shown to have positive outcomes for those suffering from issues stemming from BPH.
Tadalafil is recommended for some men who suffer from climax control and some studies have found that PDE5 inhibitors have been effective in helping delay orgasm.1
