INTRODUCTION

TADAZEST 20MG TABLET contains Tadalafil which belongs to the group of medicines called Phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE 5) inhibitors. It is used in adults to treat erectile dysfunction (in men) and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).

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.

PAH can be defined as increased blood pressure in the blood vessels that supply the lungs. It can be caused due to narrowing of blood vessels (arteries) supplying the heart and the lungs. Symptoms of PAH might include shortness of breath, tiredness, weakness and feeling faint.

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

Avoid consuming alcohol or grapefruit juice while taking TADAZEST 20MG TABLET, as it may lead to unwanted side effects. Before taking TADAZEST 20MG TABLET, 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 the whole or a part of the prostate gland.

TADAZEST 20MG TABLET is not recommended for use in patients with severely low or high blood pressure and in patients who recently had a stroke. It is also not suitable for use in pregnant or breastfeeding women unless considered necessary by the physician.

The most common side effects of taking TADAZEST 20MG TABLET are flushing, headache, dizziness, blurred vision and muscle pain. Consult your doctor if any of these side effects troubles you. You must also inform your doctor if you experience any painful and prolong erection after taking TADAZEST 20MG TABLET.

USES OF TADAZEST 20MG TABLET

It is used in adults to treat:

  • Erectile Dysfunction in men
  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH)

HOW TADAZEST 20MG TABLET WORKS

TADAZEST 20MG TABLET 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 erect throughout the process of sexual intercourse.

It also relaxes the blood vessels supplying the lungs which enable the blood to flow more smoothly within them with less pressure, leading to reduction in the signs of pulmonary arterial hypertension.
