Erectile dysfunction (ED) is quickly becoming more common, but may still be widely under-treated. Research conducted since the 1980's has shown that ED occurs due to physiological and psychological factors instead of one or the other; treatment of ED has evolved in this same time frame.
"The last two decades have seen a dramatic growth of understanding in the physiology of erection, the pathophysiology of ED and its treatment options..." Whereas Cialis, the brand of tadlafil, functions as a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor like other ED therapies such as sildenafil, its duration of efficacy is much longer. Tadalafil has a half-life in human tissue of 17.5 in young, healthy adults.
Tadalafil in the treatment of erectile dysfunction
With the growing need for treatment, more doctors, including general practitioners, are prescribing PDE5 medications for erectile dysfunction. If patients needs cannot be met with commercially available medication, compounded treatments are rising in popularity. Compounded medications, including those for erectile dyfunction, are custom made for each patient in specific strengths and dosage forms. Sildenafil and tadalafi are both prescribed as oral troches, which are similar to lozenges that are absorbed in the submucosal membrane for faster onset of action.
