Tadalafil, like Viagra has been termed the ‘wonder drug’. It is one of the most successful treatment of erectile dysfunction today. This success is due to its working mechanism. Viagra, Levitra and Tadalafil, all work on the same principle since they are PDE-5 inhibitor. As we know, erectile dysfunction occurs when the blood flow entering the penile arteries is less than the blood leaving it, which leaves the penis unable to stay firm during sexual activity. Since the drug affects the blood pressure in the body, it is essential that people use it with caution.
However, there have been a few instances where immature teenagers used the medication as a sex drug in order to increase their sexual drive. Unauthorized use of medicines is dangerous and can cause serious health complications in the future, same is true for Tadalafil and Viagra. So, here are some pointers people should keep in mind when dealing with erectile dysfunction medicines.
