Tadalafil is a medication that is used to treat impotence, erectile dysfunction(ED), benign prostatic hyperplasia(BPH) and pulmonary arterial hypertension. It works on the principle of increasing the blood flow to the penis to help a man initiate and sustain an erection. It alleviates the symptoms of BPH such as difficulty in the flow of urine, weak stream, and the feeling to urinate frequently or urgently. It directly affects the smooth muscle in the prostate and bladder to relax it. Although tadalafil is a sexual stimulant, it does not protect against Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) such as hepatitis B, gonorrhoea, syphilis, herpes or AIDS.
Tadalafil is sold under the brand name of Cialis. If you are sexually struggling in getting and maintaining an erection and miss your teenage wood, you should definitely buy Cialis for a happy sexual life.
