Fast acting Tadalafil Oral Jelly (gel), is a revolutionary treatment for men suffering from erectile dysfunction.
Tadaga Jellies contain exactly the same chemical compound as the regular pill. However, instead of being swallowed and digested, the orange flavored gel is absorbed directly into the bloodstream. The effect of Tadaga Oral Jellies is noticable after 20-40 minutes.
Tadalafil is a medicine used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction (impotence). Tadalafil is called a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor, and works by preventing the action of a chemical in the body called phosphodiesterase type 5.
The dose should be taken at least 15 minutes before intended intercourse, and it may produce an erection in response to sexual stimulation for up to 36 hours after taking the dose.
- Unless your doctor or pharmacist tells you otherwise, you should avoid drinking grapefruit juice while taking this medicine, as it may increase the level of this medicine in your blood and hence increase the risk of side effects.
- If your erection lasts longer than 4 hours (priapism), consult a doctor immediately. Treatment of this condition should not be delayed more than 6 hours, as this can cause damage to the erectile tissue in the penis and irreversible erectile dysfunction.
- This medicine may cause dizziness and so may affect your ability to drive or operate machinery safely. Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how this medicine affects you and you are sure it won't affect your performance.
- If this medicine is taken with alcohol there is an increased risk of a drop in blood pressure that might make you feel dizzy. In addition, alcohol can impair sexual performance.
- This medicine should not be taken more than once a day, and it is strongly recommended that you don't use it every day. This is because the long-term safety of using this medicine every day for long periods of time has not been established, and also because the effect usually lasts for longer than one day.

How can this medicine affect other medicines?
Tadalafil must not be taken with any form of nitrate medication, as this combination can produce a severe drop in blood pressure that can cause dizziness, fainting, or even a heart attack. Nitrate medications include the following:
- Glyceryl trinitrate, isosorbide mononitrate, isosorbide dinitrate, used for angina or heart failure
- Amyl nitrate (also known as 'poppers').
If Tadalafil is taken by people who are taking medicines for high blood pressure (antihypertensives), the combination may potentially cause an extra drop in blood pressure. This is unlikely to be significant, but you should be aware that if it does occur it may make you feel dizzy. This is more likely to occur in people taking alpha blocker medicines such as doxazosin, some of which are used to treat an enlarged prostate gland as well as high blood pressure. Tadalafil is therefore not recommended for men taking alpha blockers.
The use of Tadalafil with other treatments for erectile dysfunction is not recommended, as the safety of such combinations has not yet been established.
The following medicines may increase the blood level of Tadalafil, which could increase the risk of side effects:
- The antifungal medicines ketoconazole and itraconazole
- The antibiotic medicines clarithromycin and erythromycin
- The HIV protease inhibitors ritonavir and saquinavir.
The following medicines may decrease the blood level of Tadalafil:
If Tadalafil is taken by people taking theophylline there may be a small increase in heart rate. This is unlikely to be significant, but you should tell your doctor if you are taking theophylline.
