What is Cialis 5 mg used for?

Cialis is a PDE5 inhibitor which contains the active ingredient Tadalafil. It is an intensive pharmacological agent which has vasodilator properties and acts selectively only in the blood vessels of the small pelvis.

The pharmacological properties of Tadalafil determine a list of the indications when this medication may be used:

  • The treatment of the erectile dysfunction of the organic, psychogenic or medicated origin during the combined therapy
  • Prevention of the erectile dysfunction in young men who are at the risk group
  • The treatment and prevention of prostatitis

Cialis 5 mg is often used for the treatment of the urological diseases and a recovery of the erection in men1.

However, there is a clinical evidence that the everyday use of Cialis 5 mg helps to reduce a risk of the development of the pulmonary hypertension in patients with underlying risk for this disease, and higher doses of Cialis are preferable during this pathology2.

Cialis has a narrow pharmacological action because the mechanism is conditioned by the influence only on the PDE5 enzyme. It does not give an opportunity to use the drug in the treatment of many diseases, however the urological diseases when Tadalafil is used for are treatable in 99% of cases.

What is the safest drug for erectile dysfunction?

Just several decades ago, there was only Viagra available for treating ED, but today, a range of new ED medications are available for men. They may differ in effectiveness, safety, and other factors. Although Viagra is considered the most effective ED drug, it is not the safest one due to its potential to cause side effects.

There are ED medications with different brand names that usually come with one of the following active ingredients: sildenafil, tadalafil, avanafil, and vardenafil. It is important to understand that if something works for one man, it may be ineffective or harmful to another.

The choice of the drug should be based on many factors, such as any other medications that you take, your health condition, your body reaction to a particular ED drug, etc. That is why consulting a healthcare provider is important when it comes to choosing an ED medication. However, no one can say for sure how this or that ED medicine will work for you until you actually start using it. That is why you should begin with the small dosage to check both the effectiveness and safety of a particular ED drug.
