How does Vidalista 20 mg Work
Erectile dysfunction occurs because of the inadequate flow of blood to the penile tissue. The blood flow can decrease as a consequence of any medical ailment affecting the reproductive organs, or as a side effect of using certain medication. And most of the time, psychological conditions affect sexual health.
- Just like Viagra or Cialis, Vidalista acts on the smooth muscles and blood vessels inside the penis.
- When sexually aroused, nitric oxide gets released inside the penis.
- Nitric acid promotes the production of a chemical, known as cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) that monitors the flow of blood into the penis by controlling the contraction and dilation of the blood vessels.
- The increase in blood flow results in a firm erection of the penis.
- An enzyme called Phosphodiesterase type 5 then obstructs the action of cGMP to stop the erection.
- Tadalafil in the Vidalista tablets inhibits the action of the PDE 5 enzyme to prolong the erection, thus providing relief from ED.
Uses of Vidalista 20 mg
Vidalista 20 mg tablets are prescribed for the treatment of the conditions summarized below.
- Erectile Dysfunction: a disorder affecting men where they are not able to attain or maintain a penile erection during sexual activity.
- Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension: a condition of elevated blood pressure of the arteries in the lungs.
- Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: an ailment that results in enlargement of the prostate gland leading to difficulties in urination.
For effective results, it is crucial to follow the doctor’s instructions properly.
- Take the tablet whole, orally, with a glass of water.
- The tablets are well tolerated on an empty stomach as well, therefore, you can take them with or without food.
- For erectile dysfunction, take a tablet when required, at least thirty minutes before the anticipated sexual activity. The effects of Tadalafil last for more than 24 hours. Therefore, it is not recommended to consume more than one tablet in a day. The tablet works efficiently to provide a penile erection when the user is sexually aroused.
- For the treatment of BPH or PAH, one tablet per day around the same time every day is required to achieve effective results. A steady level of Tadalafil is required to be maintained to provide relief from the ailments.

Skip the missed dose when the time of your dose is approaching, and then continue with the regular schedule.
