INTRODUCTION

EXTADIL 20 DISINTEGRATING STRIP contains Tadalafil which belongs to the group of medicines called Phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE 5) inhibitors. It is used in adult men to treat erectile dysfunction and urinary symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (prostate enlargement causing painful or frequent urination or untentional passing of urine).

Erectile dysfunction (also known as impotence) is a sexual condition where a man cannot sustain a hard erected penis that is required for a normal sexual activity. It happens due to decreased blood flow to the penis.

EXTADIL 20 DISINTEGRATING STRIP would help you to get an erection only if you are sexually stimulated. It is not an aphrodisiac (sex-stimulating agent) and therefore cannot be used to induce sexual thoughts or can improve sexual performance/pleasure in healthy men. It is also not suitable for use in healthy men who do not have erectile dysfunction.

It may take around 30 minutes to 1 hour for EXTADIL 20 DISINTEGRATING STRIP to start working, therefore take this medicine at least one hour before planning to have sex. Avoid consuming alcohol or grapefruit juice while taking EXTADIL 20 DISINTEGRATING STRIP, as it may lead to unwanted side effects.

Before taking EXTADIL 20 DISINTEGRATING STRIP, inform your doctor if you have any liver, kidney or heart problems. You must also inform your doctor if you have any deformity in your penis or have undergone surgical removal of whole or a part of the prostate gland.

EXTADIL 20 DISINTEGRATING STRIP is not recommended for use in patients with severely low or high blood pressure and in patients who recently had stroke. The most common side effects of taking EXTADIL 20 DISINTEGRATING STRIP are flushing, headache, dizziness, blurred vision and muscle pain. Consult your doctor if any of these side effect troubles you.

USES OF EXTADIL 20 DISINTEGRATING STRIP

It is used to treat:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Signs of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

HOW EXTADIL 20 DISINTEGRATING STRIP WORKS

EXTADIL 20 DISINTEGRATING STRIP works by blocking the effects of certain enzymes (PDE5) in the body that limits blood flow to the penis. This relaxes the blood vessels supplying the penis, improves blood flow to the penis and makes it stay erected throughout the process of sexual intercourse.

It also relaxes the smooth muscles surrounding the bladder and prostate gland which improves the flow of urine thereby reducing the unpleasant signs of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.
