How does Ceebis 20 mg work
The active ingredient of Ceebis 20 mg is Tadalafil that is a PDE5 (phosphodiesterase type 5) inhibitor. Erectile dysfunction is a result of constricted arteries/ blood vessels and a restricted blood flow in the penis. PDE5 inhibits the production of cGMP (cyclic guanosine monophosphate) in the body by destroying it. cGMP controls the contraction-dilation of blood vessels. Tadalafil inhibits the PDE5 enzyme which is responsible for the decreased blood flow. This results in increased contraction and dilation of the muscle cells lining the blood vessels. Thus, a pressure is created in the penis that helps achieve and maintain a firm erection. This effect lasts for 36 hours after medicine intake.
Uses of Ceebis 20 mg
It is used for the treatment of the following conditions-
1. Erectile Dysfunction (ED or impotence)- it is responsible for a man being unable to either achieve or maintain a hard erection during sexual activity.
2. Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH)- a disorder that affects the arteries of the lungs and the right part of the heart by increasing the blood pressure in them. It causes shortness of breath, fatigue, and dizziness.
3. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)- this an age-related condition where the prostate gland becomes unusually large. It causes frequent and painful urination.
It may be taken based on your need or daily depending on your doctor’s prescription. A tablet of Ceebis 20 mg should be swallowed 30 to 60 minutes before sex. Take care to not intake more than one tablet a day. If you’re taking it daily at a set time then sexual intercourse can be done any time. You may take it with or without a meal.
For treating BPH or PAH, generally, doctors recommend starting with one pill a day, every day at a set time. The dosage may be increased later by the doctor according to your condition. Remember that it only keeps PAH under control and cannot cure it so, you need to take medicine every day irrespective of how well you are feeling. Stop taking it only when told to do so by your doctor.
For erectile dysfunction, if you take it whenever needed, there are fewer chances of forgetting a dose. But if you are to take it regularly for any of the conditions mentioned, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, take care to not take the next pill if it’s scheduled within the next 24 hours. Don’t overdose.
In case of an overdose, immediately contact your doctor or a health-care emergency because it may lead to some serious side-effects.
