Tadalafil 10 mg. 8 tablets
What Tadalafil is and what it is used for
Tadalafil is a herd for the treatment of elderly men with erectile dysfunction. This is a condition in which a man cannot reach or retain a hard, erect penis suitable for sexual activity. Tadalafil herd shows a significant improvement in the ability to obtain a hard, erect penis suitable for sexual activity. TADALAFIL contains the active substance tadalafil, which belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors. After sexual stimulation, TADALAFIL acts to help the blood vessels in your penis relax and allow your blood flow. The result is improved erectile function. Tadalafil will not help you if you do not have erectile dysfunction.
It is important to note that TADALAFIL does not work unless there is sexual stimulation. You and your partner will need to get involved in the love game just as you would if you did not take erectile dysfunction medicine.
