Sexual disorders are a scourge of millions of men. They seriously hamper the management of the couple’s natural intimate life. The most common violation of the reproductive system of a man is a weak erection, which has the scientific name erectile dysfunction. However, these days, thanks to effective medicines, one can cope with this problem. One of those is Cialis, the basis of which is tadalafil. Instructions for the use of the drug and its features are a topic that we will consider today.
The history of the appearance of Tadalafil
In 1993, ICOS and Lilly began a series of studies to develop drugs to enhance erection. Scientists have studied the effect of the chemical compound IC-351, which retards the action of the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5. It is this enzyme that is the basis of all modern drugs for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. In 1995, ICOS obtained a patent right for IC-351 and started a clinical trial of the facility. In July 2002, the drug was recommended for sales in the EU countries. Generic Tadalafil is sold under the trade name Cialis.
Principle of action of generic Tadalafil
Tadalafil belongs to the type of selective inhibitors of type 5 phosphodiesterase. He takes an active part in inhibiting the synthesis of cGMP – this allows you to relax the smooth muscles of the blood vessels in the pelvic area and genitals. This action leads to an increase in the blood flow to the cavernous bodies of the penis, after which the male experiences a prolonged quality erection.
The main advantage of generic tadalafil 20mg is its long-lasting effect. The effect occurs approximately 15-20 minutes after taking and remains for the next 36 hours. Maximum efficiency is observed after 5-6 hours after use. After that, its gradual elimination from the body begins. Generic Tadalafil favorably differs from other drugs for the treatment of weak erections – it lasts a day and a half. No other drug can boast of such an achievement.
With tadalafil man can achieve increased erections and have sex from 30 minutes and longer. But this is not all the advantages of Tadalafil. Its main active ingredient is effective only if the man is sexually aroused.

Tadalafil excludes the existence of a permanent erection during all 36 hours of action on the body.
