How does Cialis work?

7th May 2019

Globally, there are over one hundred million men suffering from ED or erectile dysfunction who are now finding ways to solve their erection problems. The widely acceptable medical term for erection problems is erectile dysfunction.

What is ED or Erectile Dysfunction?

ED also known as Erectile Dysfunction is a sexual disorder among men characterised by the inability to have or maintain a penile erection to be able to successfully have sexual intercourse and gratification. It is also known as impotence. ED is one of the most commonly occurring sexual problems among men. Medical doctors and researchers have worked long and hard to come up with a potent medication to treat this disorder. There are several causes for ED such as hormonal factors, raging, psychological problems, diseases like diabetes, depression, and muscular or arterial problems.

What is Cialis?

Cialis is a medication that is used to cure problems having and maintaining an erection while having sexual intercourse. The most common ED drugs in the market today are Cialis, Viagra, and Levitra. They all work to treat ED and help men have and sustain an erection enough to successfully keep up with any sexual activity. Of the three medications, Cialis is 100% proven to have a longer lasting effect in men with erectile dysfunction.

How does Cialis work?

Cialis works by improving men’s natural erectile response as it inhibits the PDE5 enzyme production in the body. It prevents certain enzymes such as the PDE5 or phosphodiesterase, which releases Nitric Oxide from the nerve endings, and endothelium which leads to the relaxing of smooth muscles, thus ushering in penile erection in men.

Furthermore, Cialis works by heightening the levels of nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide is the naturally occurring chemical in the body that boosts sexual drive. When nitric oxide is sufficient in the body, it will allow blood vessels in the penis to relax and have sufficient blood flow. The drug Cialis does not cause erection per se, but they are the ones that stimulate the arousal in men with ED.

What Cialis is able to do is create effects that produce sexual arousal. When aroused, there is adequate blood flow into the penis and other internal parts of the sexual organ that enables for a successful sexual activity. Cialis can be taken with a meal laced with fat and it will not affect its efficacy.

What makes Cialis different from other ED drugs?

One of the reasons why Cialis is regarded as the most in-demand cure for erectile dysfunction in men is its longer lasting efficiency compared to other ED drugs.

How to take Cialis

Cialis is to be taken orally as a pill at least one hour before a sexual act. It should be taken only once a day. It can be taken with or without meals. Before you take the medication, make sure you consult with your doctor to avoid any health complications.

Conclusion

ED drugs have different chemical components these differences result in different effects, functions, side effects, duration of the drug in the body, and how they interact with other medication that patients are taking. That is the reason why it is highly advised that you initially consult with a medical doctor before you try out any of these medications. There are some important health considerations your medical doctor has to look into before they can make a final diagnosis and decide if Cialis is the right medication for your erectile dysfunction.

As a word of caution, this medication is not applicable for use by everyone with erectile dysfunction like patients who have heart conditions, retinal disorders, hypertension, leukaemia, anaemia, and those who recently suffered from a stroke. Consult with your doctor if you suffer from any life-threatening medical condition, or if you are taking some medicines that can run counter to Cialis and affect its potency.
