GENERIC AVAILABLE: No

PRESCRIPTION: Yes

USES: Tadalafil is used for the treatment of impotence (erectile dysfunction, ED) and benign prostatic hyperplasia. Tadalafil offers no protection against sexually transmitted diseases.

WARNING: Tadalafil has been associated with prolonged erections or priapism (painful erections lasting more than 6 hours). Patients should seek immediate medical help if they experience an erection lasting more than 4 hours. Use of tadalafil, most often in patients with pre-existing heart disease, has been associated with

chest pain, heart attacks, death, strokes, palpitations, and increased heart rate.

Rare cases of sudden loss of hearing have been reported with phosphodiesterase inhibitors such as tadalafil, sometimes associated with ringing in the ears and dizziness. If changes in hearing occur, patients should stop their tadalafil and seek immediate medical attention. Phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors have been associated rarely with non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), a condition which causes decreased vision and may lead to blindness. Patients should stop use of all PDE5 inhibitors and seek medical attention if they experience sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes.

SIDE EFFECTS: The most common side effects of tadalafil are

facial flushing (reddening), headaches, stomach upset, diarrhea, flu-like symptoms, and nausea. Tadalafil also may cause low blood pressure, blurred vision, changes in color vision, and abnormal ejaculation.
