Adcirca, also known as tadalafil, is a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor (PDE5 inhibitor) and comes in tablet form for oral administration. It is anywhere from white to orange in color and comes in 20MG doses.
Adcirca is used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension as well as improve exercise capacity. This is when you have high blood pressure in the main artery that carries blood from the right side of the heart to the lungs. When the little blood vessels in your lungs start to resist the flow of blood, the right ventricle (right side of heart) has to then work harder in order to pump a sufficient amount of blood through the lungs. This is when tadalafil increases the supply of blood and eases the effort of pumping blood by working on the PDE5 enzyme and relaxing the blood vessels.
Since this medication increases blood flow, it can also be used as a treatment for erectile dysfunction.
Always follow directions given by your doctor.
Ascirca is usually taken once a day and can be taken with or without food. Sometimes two 20MG tablets are needed for a full dose; take one after the other and do not split the dose.
