Vidalista 2.5 mg is a generic Cialis pill containing tadalafil. Tadalafil is primarily used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) and the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Tadalafil belongs to a class of drugs called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. These drugs work by increasing blood flow to the penis during sexual arousal, which helps to maintain an erection.
How to use Vidalista 2.5 mg
Vidalista 2.5 mg is usually taken as needed, at least 30 minutes before sexual activity. Its effects can last for up to 36 hours. This doesn’t mean you will have an erection for 36 hours, but you’ll be able to achieve an erection when sexually stimulated during that time frame.
- Erectile Dysfunction (ED): Tadalafil helps increase blood flow to the penis to help a man get and keep an erection.
- Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH): It can be used to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. It helps to relieve symptoms such as difficulty in beginning the flow of urine, a weak stream, and the need to urinate frequently or urgently.
- Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH): In some formulations, tadalafil can also be used to improve exercise capacity in men and women diagnosed with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).
Benefits Of Vidalista 2.5 mg
- Erectile Dysfunction Treatment: It helps increase blood flow to the penis, enabling a man to achieve and maintain an erection.
- Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH): Tadalafil is also prescribed for men with an enlarged prostate. It helps relieve symptoms such as difficulty starting the flow of urine, a weak stream, and the need to urinate urgently or frequently.
- Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH): Some formulations of tadalafil are used to treat PAH, a condition characterized by high blood pressure in the vessels leading to the lungs. It can improve exercise capability in such patients.
How it works
Tadalafil works by blocking PDE5, an enzyme that breaks down a chemical called cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) in the smooth muscles of the penis. By inhibiting PDE5, more cGMP is available in the penis, which promotes muscle relaxation and increases blood flow. This helps achieve and maintain an erection.
