Why Cialis is Prescribed

From the day when Adam saw the Apple, sex became a part of human life. Man has always been looking for something that can help him to improve his performance to satisfy himself and his partner. Barriers like age, hormonal imbalances, society, money and other factors could not stop them from searching for that magical solution. Even though medicinal herbs, fruits and certain exercises such as meditation have helped man to do better but man has always been searching for a solution to reduce the erectile dysfunction problem with the minimal side effect. First Viagra came to the market in 1998 and it became an instant hit. But Viagra had some serious side effects and so people were looking for something better with little side effects.

Then came Cialis with higher half life and minimal side effects. Erectile dysfunction is nothing but a condition in which a man cannot get and maintain a penile erection long enough to enjoy sex and satisfy the partner. There are various causes of erectile dysfunction such as psychological, hormonal, arterial or muscular. Several diseases like Diabetes Mellitus, Major Depression, certain thrombotic disorders, etc. have been associated with this problem. Cialis is a medicine like Viagra. It inhibits an enzyme known as phosphodiesterase type 5 which releases Nitric Oxide from nerve endings and endothelium.

The nitric oxide relaxes muscles and helps in erection. Cialis is a product from Eli Lilly and ICOS. This is a trade name for the product called Tadalafil, which was launched in the market in 2003. As these products do not have specificity, so, vasodilatation at different parts of the body results in certain side effects such as headache, nasal congestion, stuffiness, and fall in blood pressure. However, the side effects are more in case of Viagra than Cialis. Some patients also experience heart attack and severe fall in blood pressure. People, who are suffering from erectile dysfunction as a result of some arterial disorders, are the people who benefit the most.

People who are having hormonal problems or psychological problems except those with Diabetic neuropathy do not get much benefit. You should not believe the myth that Cialis can work as soon as you take it. It needs some time to start its activity. Cialis has a higher half-life, which is around 36 hours. Viagra, on the other hand, has a half-life of just four hours. It means that after taking Cialis, you can expect an erection even after a long time. So, you don’t need to use it as and when you need the erection. This is good for you because it can help you in attaining a normal sex life and satisfy your partner better. Hormonal therapy and genetic therapy research in regard to erectile dysfunction is going on at present. The research is focusing on preventing the side effects of such drugs.
