What Is Tadapox?
Tadapox is a combinatory drug containing two active substances, tadalafil and dapoxetine, each of them addresses a different issue with men’s sexual health. The drug is used as a first-line symptomatic treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) and premature ejaculation (PE) and is a unique two-in-one solution.
The drug is taken prior to sexual activity and continues to produce its medicinal effect during the ensuing 36 hours.
Active Substances & Action Mechanism
Tadapox is a male sexual health drug with a dual function. The main difference between Tadapox and other drugs in the Cialis group is quite present. How is Tadapox tadalafil different from Cialis? And why is Tadapox a good alternative to Cialis? Cialis is based on tadalafil as an active component whereas Tadapox consists of two active components – tadalafil and dapoxetine.
The drug is effective for 36 hours. At any time during this period, the patient can perform a sexual act. It is necessary to take the tablets in half an hour before the planned sexual act. It is necessary to take sufficient quantity of water with a tablet.
Active Substance Tadalafil
One of the two active substances contained in Tadapox is tadalafil. This molecule was designed to relax the muscles and blood vessels of the penis, allowing better blood circulation and therefore provides a better contraction of the male.
The efficacy of tadalafil was assessed using a questionnaire on sexual functions before and after taking. Sexual activity, the ability to achieve and maintain penile erection, thus improves 30 to 60 minutes after taking the prescribed dose. Other studies have shown that erection improvement can last up to 36 hours after taking this Cialis equivalent. You can take this pill against impotence several hours before sex while still benefiting from the positive effects of the product.
Tadalafil exerts its action if there is sexual stimulation. No effect is to be declared if the excitation does not take place. The patient can take his dose of Tadalafil without prescription several hours before without having an erection in the pants.
The effectiveness of tadalafil is therefore closely related to the presence of stimulation. If the approach of intercourse is felt in the patient’s body, the erection occurs immediately and naturally, and can be maintained for a long time thanks to this male pill.
In some cases, scientists found a slight delay effect, which prolonged the sexual intercourse longer than usual. In addition, thanks to the long duration of its effectiveness, tadalafil allows you to resume sexual activity just after having sex. In most patients, the effect of tadalafil can be felt for 36 hours.
Active Substance Dapoxetine
The first drug against premature ejaculation, dapoxetine, will be marketed in early 2013 under the name of Priligy. Already available internationally, this molecule multiplies by three the interval between the beginning of penetration and ejaculation.
The American Psychiatric Reference Manual (DSM-5) defines the disorder as “ejaculation triggered by minimal stimulation before, at or just after penetration, and occurring consistently or recurrently before man wants it” without however, mention the duration of penetration. It is estimated, however, that 90% of men who have it do not take more than one minute after the start of the sexual act, and even less than 30 seconds for 80% of them. In the general population, the median duration is between 5 minutes 30 seconds and 6 minutes. Above all, the vast majority of these men complain of a lack of control of the fateful moment.
Dapoxetine belongs to a family of antidepressants called serotonin reuptake inhibitors, a neurotransmitter found in the brain. Its short duration of action (a few hours) that makes it a bad antidepressant becomes an advantage here. The effect of withdrawal, which occurs when the therapeutic family is stopped too abruptly, is notably less pronounced.
In fact, the main merit of dapoxetine may well be to decomplex men with premature ejaculation, so they dare to talk to a sexologist. Beyond the old methods still proposed to delay the imminence of orgasm (stop movements back and forth, pressure of the glans or the base of the penis), there are now more global approaches that improve the sexuality despite the disorder. It should also be remembered that, in the studies, the majority of premature ejaculatory partners said they were quite satisfied with their sexual relationship. It would be naïve to pretend to reduce sexuality to a matter of ejaculatory control.
- to improve the erectile hardness. This effect happens thanks to tadalafil;
- to treat premature ejaculation – thanks to dapoxetine;
- to prolong orgasm – thanks to the effect of the combination of two active components.
- to stabilize erection and avoid flaccidity;
- increase control over erection;
- longer duration of sexual intercourse without loss of sensitivity.
After taking a tablet, erection occurs as a result of improved blood circulation. Note that erection only happens under condition of erotic excitement. In the composition of Tadapox, tadalafil keeps erection stable and long-lasting. Dapoxetine prevents premature ejaculation. To be more precise, this moment is delayed, prolonging the IVL (intravaginal latency time) by more than three times. After ejaculation, recharge for a new erection can occur much faster than in an unmedicated state. The possibility of repeating a sexual act is kept thanks to tadalafil.
Dosage & Posology
Tadapox is taken by mouth before sexual contact in 30 minutes at best, and in a minimum of 15-20 minutes before sexual intercourse.
After taking the medicine, you can define the individual reactions of your body to Cialis with dapoxetine. In most cases the drug is completely removed from the body within 36 hours after consumption. For this reason, it is recommended to take Tadapox only once a day.
Warning: it is absolutely not recommended to take Tadapox with alcohol.
Warnings And Precautions
A cardiological and ophthalmological assessment is essential before any prescription in the subjects at risk. In case of renal or hepatic insufficiency and in the elderly, do not exceed the dose of 10mg per dose. Tadapox should be used with caution, in case of anatomical abnormality of the penis, priapism-prone pathologies (polycythemia, sickle cell disease), progressive peptic ulcer. Because of dizziness and reported visual disturbances, patients must know how they react to these molecules before driving or handling machines.
In order to achieve better efficacy of Tadapox, tobacco, alcohol, and narcotic substances should be avoided. Possible psychosocial causes must be identified and treated. Some drugs are deleterious for erectile function, such as thiazide diuretics, neuroleptics and antiandrogens in particular.
The combination of Tadapox with nitrates in all its forms is contraindicated because of a risk of sudden hypotension. The concomitant use alongside with enzyme inhibitors, including antiproteases and antifungals, calcium channel blockers should be avoided.
Tadapox are contraindicated:
- in subjects for whom sexual activity is inadvisable, with unstable angina, recent myocardial infarction or stroke, severe heart failure.
- in case of ischemic optic neuropathy, retinitis pigmentosa, hypotension, uncontrolled rhythm disorders.
- in case of severe hepatic and renal insufficiency.
- in case of known hypersensitivity to the different products and in the subjects of less than 18 years old.
Tadapox Side Effects
Usually, for medicines containing tadalafil or dapoxetine, side effects can occur in the form of headaches (11% of cases) and dyspepsia (7%). Adverse events of taking tadalafil rarely occur and are of short or medium duration.
A detail to note: even if the side effects are noted, after 4-5 intakes, they weaken and disappear completely. However, if serious side effects occur, stop taking Tadapox and talk to a doctor.
Side effects include myalgia, dorsalgia, hot flashes, stuffy nose. Even more rarely are there ocular problems, swelling of the eyelids, vertigo, hyperemias. It should be noted that the active component (tadalafil) is suitable for subjects who do not show non-reception to other substances used to improve erection. So, if the side effects do not manifest after taking sildenafil (main component of Viagra) or vardenafil (active component of Levitra), chances are that Tadapox will suit you too.
With regard to the active component of dapoxetine, pharmacology offers drugs against premature ejaculation, such as Priligy, and these drugs are based on dapoxetine. So, it’s a way to prolong erection tested by time and pharmacology.
