How does Tadacip work for you?

Tadacip is a generic medication which has the similar functions and side effects like Viagra. The main active ingredient of this drug is tadalafil hydrochloride which is a PDE5 inhibitor. The tadalafil hydrochloride has the potential to break down the cyclic guanile monophosphate. The most important function of cGMP is to loosen the constricted blood vessels of the genital areas with the help of nitric oxide that are formed in the corpus cavernosum of men’s penis. The nitric oxide is the prime chemical component which plays an important role for the erection process.

Tadacip is a selective phosphodiesterase type5 inhibitor. Tadacip works by sexual stimulation and influence the release of nitric oxide. When the person takes this drug, it activates the cGMP in the corpus cavernosum in men’s penis.

The relaxation of the blood vessels results in increased blood flow to the penis. Thus it improves the erection in men.

In pulmonary arterial hypertension, there is increased blood pressure in the arteries of the lung and it makes the heart to enforce the blood against the elevated pressure of the lung. This condition is occurred due to the lack of nitric oxide and saturation of the vasoconstrictors. When the patients suffering from PAH take this drug, it stabilizes the synthesis of cyclic guanile monophosphate and stimulates the production of nitric oxide. Thus it loosens the blood vessels and improves the blood flow.
