Tadalafil is a medicament used for treating problems with erection and hypertension. Thanks to its mechanism of action in the human organism, it is popular in the area of bodybuilding, as well.
It acts on the same principle as sildenafil citrate. It contains nitric oxide, which acts by biochemical processes in muscles and facilitates blood flow in vessels. On the same principle it acts in penis – it can be better filled with blood. The difference in comparison with sildenafil is the fact, that the results achieved by the use of tadalafil remain much longer – up to 36 hours.
Just like sildenafil citrate, tadalafil is also used in combination with anabolic-androgenic steroids for the purposes of bodybuilding. Thanks to the faster blood flow, they can get to muscles more easily and act more quickly and effectively.
Tadalafil side effects
The side effects are also almost identical as those of sildenafil citrate. Amongst them there can be headache, red face, digestion problems, blocked nose, also the pain of back and muscles can appear. More serious side effects, which are quite rare, however, can be extremely low blood pressure and hearing disorders.
For treating problems with erection an initial dose of 10 mg before the sexual intercourse is recommended. However, it is more effective to use tadalafil once per day in a regular time in a dose of 2,5 mg.
